This is a misc. info area for maint. stuff on the FZ 09. If you would like to have stuff added to this thread, PM me with the info and I will add it in, as this thread will be locked. For discussion of any of the Maint. item stuff or the tools that are needed to work on the bike, please visit the "Discussion Thread" (Maint. Jobs and Info Tread.........Discussion thread.) and talk about it there. I'll start it out with info that I've acquired so far, front of the bike to the back.

Disclaimer and Warning........
Over the past several years, since this info became available, via the Yamaha Service Manual, there have been questions regarding the accuracy of the recommended TORQUE values for both the REAR AXLE NUT and the OIL DRAIN PLUG. Many folks think that those given numbers are too high, and some have experienced issues (stripped threads) when using the numbers that Yamaha has given for TORQUE values on those components.

Another issue involves the DRIVE CHAIN SLACK recommended numbers. Many folks set the CHAIN SLACK looser than the numbers given by Yamaha, so again, use common sense when making these adjustments.
