What about your screen?Is the increased noise bearable?Also is this the smoke or dark smoke?
I've actually gotten used to it. It's bearable, and smooth wind. I wanted to give it a week or so to see if it really was annoying and it's not. I also have lower bars I'm going to install here soon. It's the dark smoke :)

Found a sweet deal on pitbull stands front and rear. Night and day compared to my harbor freight rear stand. I don't have to use my car jack with a flat board underneath the exhaust anymore or hook a pulley to the ceiling to lift the front end(y)

Cpto116 - that looks like the Yamaha option comfort seat, which was available in one variety for 14-16 models and another for 17+ (although they both fit all years - the seat itself is shaped a bit differently on the newer unit).

Yesterday ,I knocked a couple hundredths off my previous best ,perfect racing weather in Gainesville Florida ! View attachment 157698
Great ET, just bought a 2017 FZ09, love it. I've put 22 lbs on the bike, but I took off 27.5lbs, with parts and such, trying to make it faster, even on a diet, lost 2 lbs-ha, I'm 200 now. Is you bike stock? What changes did you make? Mine has Yoshi r77, and Vcyclenut flashed my ECU. Maybe you have some tips. 2017 FZ09-OLD MAN.

Alright... After a day riding with the SC project exhaust, I'm over it. lol
Definitely going to put the baffle in. It's probably louder than my ZRX with the Ti Muzzy system.
Good sign you're getting old when you say something is "too loud." :LOL:
Be 65 in June, went with the Yoshi r77, baffle out, all good, but at 80, does sound a little, but I'm most just passing 80.

I thought I'd do a TB sync and a few other jobs. So off comes the tank, I sit it on the rear subframe, just like i've done before, and go to get a lump of wood to keep it level. I'm in the shed and hear a crash. The bloody tank has fallen on to the floor and snapped the outlet tube from the fuel pump.
$NZ440 ex Aussie, thank you very much. Of course it would be too customer friendly to have a replaceable outlet pipe considering this must happen fairly often.
