The first time I saw the 17 model I thought to myself, "who in the hell came up with that license plate holder"? I've seen some cruisers, and Ducati use a similar rig but that thing has to be one of the worst additions to a sport bike I've seen in a long time. Maybe they knew it would be one of the best ways to sell an after-sale part.

I'm hoping to get the same white beast next week or so. 16" of snow in Maine yesterday displeases me though.

These tail tidy kits are not on backorder...

Yamaha MT-09 | FZ-09 | 2017 | Fender Eliminator | Tail Tidy | Mustard Bikes

With the exchange rate its about $116 US

Good looking bike DrPepper!
Thanks dude,
And yeah I just got myself an aftermarket tail tidy on Ebay for cheap, the only thing im wondering is, as I have to get the whole mudguard/tailtidy off the bike, Im pretty sure it holds something with the big NUT on the left side of the wheel.

as seen in the link above, it seems like they have machined a piece of metal to go above it and replace that chunk of metal where the old tail tidy use to be.

Yeah you need either a spacer like the one in the kit or an axle from a MY16 or older FZ/MT 09. The axle on the MY17 is longer to accommodate the plate holder. remove plate holder = need for short axle or spacer.

I bought the same color last week.I've got 400 miles on it already. Going to rid the bike of the plate holder also , but was not going to give Yamaha any money for it.I bought my bracket off ebay this week.Theres lots of products to get rid of it but it seems you have to buy a older axle and spacer which they call a chain puller.The two parts cost me 57.00 plus the tail tady . I will be fitting them and the smaller turn signals this week.Hope the weather changes for you soon.

Awesome ! make sure to post pics whenever,

Also, did you get some sort of adapter plate for the front blinkers ? I remember my fz07 needed some but I just glued them there!

And yeah thats what I did too for the Tail tidy, only took 1 week to recieve off ebay. Now i gotta find a cheap <16 rear axle assembly.

Have you guys thought of uppgrading the exhaust yet ? I had an M4 on my fz07 but I think I want a full system on the fz09.

I want the most power and a nice look and sound, from what I can tell right now, the Akra Carbon and the Termignoni seems to be the best bet. What do you guys think?
