Another good site is Total Motorcycle, they cover quite a few different manufacturer's.

Total Motorcycle - 15yrs of Reviews, Bikes, Rides and Guides

And a great site where you can check and see what different rear tire size and sprocket sizes will do, is Gearing Commander.

When you go to load up the number for the 09, you need to pick the following:

169 - Yamaha MT 09 (FZ-09) 2014

Gearing Commander: Motorcycle Speed, RPM, Chain & Sprockets Calculator

Don't shoot me, I am just going to add one more, a great site to keep track of and compare Fuel Mileage.

Here is the link to some of the FZ-09 and what they have been getting.

One nice plus of the first site is the full specs, including torque and horsepower. In many of the models, they even list 0-60mph times, fuel cosumption, etc. This type of information usually takes a few years to show up for a given model. Many times I've had to look at the earlier years of a selected model to see the added specs. Occasionally though they miss the mark. For example, the 2015 FZ-09 colors are still 2014 models.

Still a great reference site though as are Rocky,s.

Is there anything out there showing speedo error relative to gearing changes?

it's not great and the interface is a bit clunky but it's getting a bit better with reviews and specs and how they compare with other bikes

Well, it was a good thought gone bad.

You can use the Gearing Commander web site to help calculate the what percentage your speedo will be out with different sprocket sizes.

Something like this, assuming my math is good, I may need another coffee, lol.
