***Please read completely before calling the folks at Graves Motorsports.***

I'm excited to to tell you that I just dropped off my 1-week old Yamaha FZ-09 at Graves Motorsports. They are using it for testing with their new products, these products are not yet available for purchase so please don't call them looking for the products. Instead follow them on Facebook or check their website regularly for updates. I will also be posting updates on this thread as they become available to me, so be sure to subscribe. I hope to have some news in the coming weeks.

I don't have too many details about what they are going to do as of yet, but I do know they do plan on doing a full exhaust and tail tiddy / fender eliminator. In the process they are going to be doing some dyno testing before and after. They also plan on having a collection of other accessories for it, similar to their current offerings.

:D:D:D

That's been in the works for several weeks now. Still nothing specific about the FZ 09

That maybe true, but the news on this thread is that my FZ is in their skilled hands. :cool:

Ahh, now it makes sense.........you're a lucky fella. Most likely, I will be going with a Graves exhaust for mine instead of some of the other offerings. Keep us updated for sure. Did I mention that you are a lucky guy!

Just got an update on day-1.. my FZ-09 is half way disassembled... It was kinda of scary finding out at first, but I had to remind myself these guys know what they are doing.

They do? Isn't the point of borrowing your 09 is to learn? ;)
True, I'm banking on their years of experience dismantling new bikes. I'm willing to bet they do this kinda of stuff more than your average motorcycle mechanic.

Stop trying to scare me v2Bob!! :p

I see a Crescent wrench in the background of one of your pics. You are in trouble now. LMAO. Those guys tear down their race bikes weekly.

A "Rough" Draft preview of the new exhaust. There may be some modifications to this for the final production version.









That's some sexy plumbing! :D

I am not in the market for a pipe, but that sticks out further than I'd like, if the bike is on it's right it will be damaged.
I'm sure it's just a beat up set up can... no way it will sold like that! LOL I think mine is better... :)

Nice work! Interesting step design with the primary pipe... that's old school stuff.
I noticed that also.... Maybe it's just the picture angle or something, but it looks like a really big step too. Or maybe that's just me?

They're clearly taking the header seriously though, cool. Do I see EGT or O2 sensors at the top of the headers?

Can't see any... need one for sure.

I bet they drill and weld a nut for the sensor in after the fact. Shortening the can is as easy as reducing the length on the connector side. It will get louder though.
