These things cost money...how much are you willing to pay for a new FZ-09?Maybe some Yamaha executive gets very, VERY bored and decides to check out this forum. Let's not keep him wanting for improvements ideas. Here's my top 3:
1. Smoother throttle response
3. Better headlight
Adjustable lever:Which effectively allows you to shorten the "stroke" of the clutch lever and bring it closer to the grip.
I understand adjustable clutch levers...I've got them on several of my bikes, including the FZ. I'm just saying that the OEM lever can be adjusted properly and give you some range of adjustment....it would work if someone doesn't want to spend the money on a set of adjustable levers.Adjustable lever:

If the bottom one was meant to be adjustable for reach, why the expense (or even existence) of the 1st one? Convenience? Possibly. But, the cable adjustment is for actuation. Too much slack (for closer reach) and some clutches might not disengage properly. Too little (adjusted for big hands?) and the plates can fail to engage fully and cause premature clutch wear.
I'll sell you mine for $12k. LOLOffer an "R" version with upgraded suspension, brakes & smoother ECU. I would've paid the extra money for a FZ-09R.
