Hey everyone .. new FZ-09 Graphite owner here

Just bought her last week - shes sitting at the dealer until the weather warms up so I can take her home.

Located in MASS.

Also have 2 other bikes ..

2009 Ducati 1198
2014 Honda Grom

Ill get some pics of the grom once I finish installing all my new mods that arrived.

A pic and small vid of the 1198 after I installed a few new mods and got her ready for riding season

Tyga makes real quality stuff for the grom .. all the above mods aside from the TDM headlight which is honda .. is made by Tyga - very satisfied with their prodcuts

Don't have to twist my arm about meeting up or taking the Grom for a romp...
I'll leave the Duc to the professionals.
I'm not worthy!

Nice rides! I used to live in RI but down in Nj now. Still have friends in Boston area.

Any mod list for the fz yet?

only plans for the FZ .. fender elim and bar end mirrors ..

I think I wanna go with the R&G fender elim .. was tossing around the idea of the evotech as well

as for bar ends - going to get the rhinomoto and most likely CRG's

You know a good addition to the fender elim?
An integrated tail light/turn signals/running light. :p

Welcome to the forum Tom and nice collection of toys. If you are over 150 lbs or so and plan on riding the FZ at a "spirited" pace, you will most likely find that you need some suspension mods. See the Stoltek Moto section for some great ideas/parts for the FZ.

Yeah I have been hearing/reading that the suspension is one of the weaker points on the fz .. im not a super aggressive rider so we will see how she rides when I have it adjusted (for what thats worth haha) ... thanks for the advice.. Ill def check that section out :)
