The EU site lists the available OEM accessories: Yamaha MT-09 - Accessories (yamaha-motor.eu) Not a whole lot there for the '21 yet, though.Any info on available accessories such as screens and rear luggage/ carry-racks, etc? Your initial view seems OK, but a pity you cannot do anything about that 28" inseam. I too hate tippy-toeing! Look forward to more words as your ownership and riding proceeds.
It can propel the bike down low, it just feels rough, a little rumbly.This is intriguing. I’m wondering if this is just a more aggressive clutch/springs. My 2015 can idle itself around, clutch out, without lugging. Plenty of torque at idle to propel it and me around.
Just rode my MT-09 home last night. I would agree with much of what you have mentioned. Coming from my Honda CB300FA to this MT-09 feels like I am riding a rocket. Can't wait to get more familiar with this bike and ride it to it's potential. Pretty sure I'm going to have a smile on my face all summer!So after adding a little slack to the clutch cable I think I've zeroed in on clutch engagement. I can feather the clutch a bit better and it made the pull feel a little more "normal", this being my first slipper/assist clutch. Also the ride mode makes a difference. In mode 1 the revs jump so quickly it's practically impossible to engage the clutch fully before hitting 2.5-3k RPM. Whereas in mode 3 the throttle is way easier to feather down low in the 1.5-2.5k range.
I also think the more I engage the clutch in the 1.5-2.5k range the smoother the engagement is, getting less of a rough, rumbly feeling from the engine or transmission. I guess that's what break-ins are for . That or my muscle memory is compensating subconsciously, haha.
I let the RPMs go up to 7-7.5k-ish yesterday. Jeebus, I thought the bike was already fast... it really takes off after 6.5k. My goodness. I was filled with both glee and fear for my life! Also, that about matches the torque curve from Dynobike's video.
