As there are starting to be a lot of different choices for aftermarket parts....exhaust, suspension, frame sliders, tank pads, etc, etc., something to keep in mind is that we do have sponsored vendors on here that provide some of the products mentioned. I'm not trying to tell anyone that they should only buy from one of the sponsors, only you know what your financial situations is and what you can afford and what you can't afford. All I'm saying is that if it is a matter of a few bucks, please consider spending it with someone that helps promote this site. I know that some/all of our vendors have worked their A$$es off with trying to provide stuff for the new FZ09....and in most cases, stuff that didn't even exist before they went to work on it. Think about the hours of product developement and the personal level of customer service that come with working with one of the site sponsors. Do they profit from this, I'm sure they do or they couldn't continue doing what they do. Everyone that is in a business has to make money or they cease to be in business but, remember the level of customer service that you receive from these guys vs. the big companies and please consider doing business with our site sponsors if you can.

Again, I'm NOT trying to tell anyone how and where to spend their money, just keep in mind the things I've mentioned above and do what works for you personally............and NO, none of the Vendors asked me to post this, I just thought it would be a good thing for everyone, including myself to read.

I completely agree with you Vern. You already touched on this, but to add just a bit of my opinion. Something to really look at with a product is the actual effort put into developing it. Being a new bike, there are lots of "new" unique products coming out. And following them, will be lots of imitations and copies.... Some of them are so obvious they even look exactly the same. Personally, if I'm buying a product I like to try to support the company/vendor that pioneered it in the first place.

Well put - thank you for posting this, Vern. One of things I love about this particular forum is the close-knit community that has developed. Owners will come and go as the bike ages, but the community will endure. Personally, I'm pleased to be part of it all.
Must so you know my goal is to have everything you have put out so far eventually, my ECU is supposed to be there Monday!

I think one of the big bonuses of joining a community like this is the huge amount of input the members can provide. The extra bonus is members like our supporting vendors actually creating/providing solutions that we want and that can actually improve our riding experience. I for one am glad they are here. Even if we fall short with our available cash and have to wait on wanted upgrades, they are always willing to share their expertise and advice to help us along... no purchase necessary. Many thanks to them! Their effort helps push the evolution of this machine beyond the factory specs and into the specific needs of each rider. Big thanks to our vendors... the difference you make cannot be measured by simple sales numbers... it is always so much more.

Also, all of our beloved vendors provide products that are substantially designed and manufactured in the USA.

I looked here for a list with all the sponsors.
I could not find it.
Where do I have to take a look?
We should support our MT family.

This is the section that the supporting Vendors on this forum are in.

YamahaFZ09.com Supporting Vendors

With you living in the Netherlands, I'm sure it wouldn't be as convenient to utilize these guys as it might be for some of the European vendors. I haven't really done any exploring, but I'm would bet that there is a European site for the MT-09 that might be of value to you also.

There are, no problem.
I visite MT forums in the UK, France and Germany.

But ...... the more you see, the more you want.

I have been a longtime customer of STG for pretty much everything motorcycle-related. However, being on this site and seeing the efforts Stoltec Moto has taken to provide an aftermarket for us before anything else, along with being an enthusiast, has inspired me. I will buy everything I can through Stoltec, and I will more than likely only resort back to STG for gear/apparel and for instances where I have a preference for specific brands which Stoltec does not carry.

I agree 100% its like not supporting a good honest local dealer, one day you will need a tire or a sparkplug in a hurry and no one will be there to serve you. RR:cool:
