Yes, you are, but that's a good thing. The world needs more of it. But seriously, thank you for taking the time with us newbies who are still trying to learn the search feature and learn about our bikes. In reality, the short amount of time that a couple of you guys took to explain all this, I could now explain the entire popping and farting on deceleration, and why/how to fix it to someone else.
Im looking for a deeper sound closer to my v-twin sound I had a Leo Vince on that bike if its possible not a whining high revving inline 4 type sound if that makes sense. I need to hear some in person ,Im going for a ride today hit some hot spots and maybe come across some bikes with a few exhaust Im interested in . I'm really like the graves the more I research it with being american made Im a patriot and all ways buy USA first if possible . They do alot of RD with Yamaha and the workmanship is outstanding . I will need to hear one in person and if the note is what Im looking for then Ill need to save a little longer for it.
Now at What point do you send it out for the flash or get a power commander to do it your self or some other programmer.
My ECU has not been touched , I can only ride in B mode A and std are way to snatchy for my liking plus Im still getting used to the bike 300 miles Ive put on it and loving it. Sending the Ecu every time I do some kind of mod will get real expensive and time consuming for shipping and packing.
On my Quad I had a power commander that I could do some tweaking after a mod that worked great.
I did not have a AFR gauge on the bike but Im sure it could be added for tuning purposes along with this FZ for tuning then remove it after the tune . Now I have not had the time to read every thread on here ,I had heard about taking the limiter off of witch im not interested on going 135+ speeds anymore . Although I would be interested in smoothing out the A and stnd setting on the map so that I could actually use them.
I have a Zard full system and it's lovely. The quality of manufacture is excellent. I have a reflash by Kev which has smoothed it out no end. It is pretty loud without the db killer but still quieter, and far less obnoxious, than a Harley.
I plan on getting an exhaust so I need to flash my ecu but I was wondering if spending the extra $370 to also get the active tuner is worth the money. Can people who have the active tuner installed notice a difference over a map without it?
I did K-Tech fork cartridges on my 2017 FJ09. I think these should drop right into an FZ 09 and are supposed to be better than the older models. The bike only had 500 miles on it when I did the swap. I'm not guaranteeing that they fit or are better so do the research. Best offer takes them.
I saw a Dave Moss vid where he greased the fork tubes and pumped the forks to lube the scraper/seals etc. So I tried it and it seems to have made a slight but noticeable difference to fork action.
I used a synthetic GP grease, putting a thin coating on each tube and smearing it over the travel...
Has anyone installed these? They are just a touch lower, and a touch more forward than the more common Carmichael bend. I am 6ft 3, so I am pondering going even lower/further forward than the Carmichael. Any feedback would be great. Thanks.
So I'm new to the forum but have been scouting it for a while now. I bought my Yellow '15 with 1k miles just under a month ago and have been loving the bike, but as per a lot of peoples tif with the bike, the rear shock is lacking for me. I'm 6'0" and 175lbs - 185lbs geared up and...
