i work at a motorcycle dealership so i have been selling the hell out of fz09 considering i own one. i find it interesting that the rapid red and the orange seem to come with bridestones yet the graphite comes with dunlops...

another difference i just noticed today was that my bar ends have a bolt through them and while i was showing a customer an fz09 today i noticed that the whole bar end just unscrews...

anyone have any insight as to why different tires or a barend issue??

The end of the bars are threaded and the bar ends screw in. Also the grips go past the end of the bars 14mm and the bar ends act as the rest of the bar. I suppose Yamaha did it to get the desired weight without making the bar ends looking so big.

I thought it was random which brand of tires an 09 not related to color, but maybe. My red has Bridgestones. Did anyone get a red or orange with Dunlops?

Any one have a photo of a bolted 09 bar end out of the bars? Seems the bars would have to be a different part number too. Not that I'll be ordering stock bars lol.
