i don't but when i sat on the FJ the handle bars were significantly wider than the FZ which would likely cause some fitment issues. Not 100% on that though.

The best way would be to look at an FZ-09 and a FJ-09 side by side and see if they would work.

There is also the option to go with the SW-Motech Kobra hand guards and add the signal light option.

SW-MOTECH KOBRA Handguards for Yamaha FZ-09 '14 - TwistedThrottle.com
SW-MOTECH LED Indicator For KOBRA Handguards - TwistedThrottle.com

$172 for the hand guards and +$70 for the LED indicators.

You'd have to add up all the parts to see how much the Yamaha version is worth.

By the look of the Yamaha diagram, the hand guards mount off the mirror mounting bolts. You'd have to do a bit of part number cross referencing to see if they use the same mirror mounts on both bikes.

I've got polisport "touquet" (i think ) handguards on Renthal bars. Fit really well, and plenty of space if i choose to put on a radial MC. Better than the barkbuster ego ones i had before, i had to file down the levers a bit to get them to fit properly.
Maybe i should fit some led's to the polisports...

The FJ09/tracer leds look nice and bright. I've been riding through torrential rain (8 litres of water through the leaky roof in my rental house yesterday) and 100kph winds in sydney for the last 2 days, and i'm thinking about making my bike light up like a christmas tree.

Here are a couple of links showing pic's of the SW-Motech Kobra hand guards. I have thought about installing them, and like the look of them as well. Some of the other ones are a little too goofy looking or MX oriented for a street bike application in my eyes.

Another link showing three other options, the black Zeta's do have a LED signal light option.

And BarkBuster Storms with added LED's.

Another option for lights is add your own LED's from SuperBrite LED's. I am going to add a set of these to my dual sport DR650SE hand guards.
