I have had my MT09 now for nearly 3 years and loved it, just so light to flick about and loads of fun. Anyway as I am doing more touring now than day to day ridding decided the MT09 with it's 14 ltr tank was no longer ideal so chopped it for this new unreg MT09 Tracer. Picked it up yesterday and in glorious sunshine decided to have a run to get the feel of her, first impressions are favourable. Seating position is better as it is a more upright ride so easier on my dodgy knees. An hour into my ride it started to snow. We never get snow in this part of France so bugger that headed for home. I have a few bits and pieces from my 09 I removed to fit on the Tracer. I am sure Tracey and me are going to enjoy many happy times together. So far for this year planned tours are end of March down to the Costa Blanca (weather window dependent) as I have to either go around the Pyrenees or under them Col de Someport tunnel. In May a group of us from are meeting up in Cochem in Germany and in August heading over to Ireland for the Armoy & UGP road races, Plan is the week between the two races is to do part of the Wild Atlantic Way Roll on Spring

I fitted a Tutoro chain oiler on the 'winter' 600 this morning. At dinnertime I went for a 20 mile spin to check the flow rate. I had to decrease it a bit. Started raining half an hour after I got back. I shall tidy the zip ties up in the morning and, weather permitting, go for a longer ride to fine tune it..
I have a Tutoro fitted to my MT09 great bit of kit, I think you could remove about a metre of the plastic piping there though. I have my feed screw set at about 1/3rd of a turn open get about 700/750 miles before needing to top up again current chain and sprockets 15,000 miles, front sprocket showing a bit of wear, but I do have a tight spot on the chain, no noticeable wear on the rear. I even have the feed set up as you have.

That challenge was posted on the 15th November . Sharpie or no one else complained about the Challenge so good enough for me, so no point in bitching at this late hour fazerider. But just because you have a pet lipon you, you pick the next challenge then.I am sure Red98 will not mind ?his call.

Well as there seems to be support for the challange unless I hear otherwise the challange is set
Don't forget if you are not on your bike then it has to be either on a Yamaha model at the Yamaha stand or aphoto of the Yamaha stand with you in it. But if someone goes to the show on there bike they will be higher up the pecking order so as to keep the spirit of the post going.

Okay seeing as the weather is getting a bit on the cold side.
So the next Challange is your bike at the NEC bike show 18-26 November 2017, failing that your mug shot visiting the bike show but you must be sitting either on aYamaha model or at least at the Yamaha stand.

« on: 19 October 2017, 02:27:20 PM »

I have had three fazers, FZ 6 S1, FZ6 S2 ,FZ1 now on an MT09.
Loved all of them but the FZ6 S2 was a mistake , I had down sized from a Z1000SX , to be honest when you have had 1000cc bike you do miss the extra cc's so I got a nice FZ1 which I loved , but sadly the old  knees are shot and the ride position was becoming unbearable. Nearly packed biking in until some one said try the MT07, I did but thought I wonder what the 09 is like, Love it a real fun bike.

Okay next challenge your bike in the car park of a Garden Centre not B&Q or Home Base a proper garden centre, showing the name of the centre.
I will accept a Garden Nursery, but not just any old flower shop.

My nephew has just been notified by a well known outdoors pursuits clothing manufacturer, that they have inadvertently used one of his photographs in an advert in a magazine.
He is I believe in talks with them and lawyers about how they inadvertently removed his Copy right protected stamp? on said photograph, could get interesting.
