    Yosh r77 install problems... Please help!!!

    Less of people have this problem with lots of different exhausts. It just takes some muscle to get them to fit. Good luck.

    2018 Start Up Trouble

    Not to be too pedantic, but it is SD, for self diagnostic. @RRR, thre was another guy with this problem but I could not find out how it was resolved. Hopefully someone will have an answer for you soon. Good luck.

    @intensity_white, I agree that for more urban-focused riding the MT-07 would be better. Yes I quite like the color! I was a little concerned that I'd be like road camo with the grey but I'm going to get some brighter gear.

    Beautiful bike Burley! I see you are in BC --you guys get the GT in a better color than we do in the states! Color me jealous!

    Hi Everybody. New bike is awesome. Day three of ownership and its raining. I put it in B mode (rain) and went to my old parking lot to do some figure 8s and u-turns (life-long learner here!). Bike is bigger for sure so I wanted to give it some practice at slow speed. I gave it a little stretch on the highway yesterday...all I can say is wow! If y0u are looking for a boring bike, don't get this one! I'm still a huge fan of the FZ-07/MT-07 platform so will stay on this forum.

    Need advice on mt07 or mt09

    I'm similar in size and just bought the MT-07.......no complaints. I like the lighter feel of the 07.....the 09 just felt too heavy. Good luck and let us know how you decide.
  11. I have no plans or desire currently to replace my FZ-07 but IF I were to get another bike I think I'd be strongly looking at a Triumph 765 Street Triple.

    The essentials to have on hand

    Ok, so it's not a tool but I would think it would be an essential on the road.

    For wimps afraid they'll get a scrape. Doesn't apply here.

    It's 5D, not SD. I'm not sure that helps it all but thought I'd chime in just in case it helps you find a solution. Best of luck.

    I'm closer to your size than others replying (not quite as big but a lot closer) and I find the MT-07 to be a comfortable size, even for hours of riding. Caveat is that I've only ever ridden the MT and BMW G310R (small), so it may be a case of not knowing what I'm missing.
  18. Trackday trim before the woodcraft bars
  19. I Have a VFR800 (2000), and an XSR700. My XSR is my run-around town bike and track day bike. Reminds me of my naked SV650 trackday bike...except for bar position. I've put a Nitron twin clicker and Matris inserts to get the suspension right. The stock footpegs are too low...put new rearsets on. Handlebars too sit up and beg for me, so swapping FZ-07 bar risers and Woodcraft bar adapter has it closer to my VFR with bars in the up position. Now the bike feels closer to my SV. The FZ-07 seemed low, too cramped for my 6'1" 245 frame. XSR has a higher riding position...when I flip/drop the bar holders I get closer to the feel of my SV650 (it was a dream on the track). In normal upright it's a joy on the street. Even with the rearsets I'm not cramped. I like the looks better...I painted the rims with auto grade paint and 2K clearcoat in the same color as my Honda Ridgeling...I like the silver better. If you like looks...the XSR is better than the MT07...If I were going JUST for looks I woulda bought a Triumph Street Twin or Thruxton...I like to 410lb curb weight...I didn't want a 500lb twin...

  20. All I can say is it can truly be frustrating and trigger road rage when people putt-putt along in the passing lane blocking you when you either have somewhere you need to be or would simply like to do the speed limit. Is the left lane considered the passing lane there? In most places it is, at least on interstate highways. Florida has it's own set of rules for slow pokes, I just wish the sheriff's and state boys would enforce them more. Maybe then people would actually give a squirt about the laws and heed them. I feel the same way about slow pokes but I'm not convinced that lane splitting 'at speed' is as safe to do as passing normally where you have more room to either side to react to something unexpected or not. Take care, stay frosty!
  21. For what it's worth, I think the TechSpec one shown above looks pretty decent. I don't currently have any grips installed though.

    TheAbhartach's "Build" - '18 MT-07

    05.18.19 - First service (at 615 miles) and installed HighTechSpeed Proton 500 front indicators. The Proton's are very bright and very high quality. They blink too fast right now, but that's to be expected and the replacement relay to correct it will arrive today. They're also easy to install if you're even vaguely comfortable with wiring. They include crimp-type wire connectors, but I instead soldered and used heat shrink on the connections for added peace of mind, since I had the spare materials around, and the spare time. Used Mobil1 Racing 4T for the oil change, as it meets all specs and is available cheaply at Walmart's everywhere. I feel like the MT is starting to really look good now as the tackier design elements have come off (stock mirrors, stock front indicators). TST integrated taillight (and relay, per above) arrives today, and MD tail tidy will get ordered the instant I get their email notification that it's back in stock (COME ON MD).

    The essentials to have on hand

    Thanks for those shots and that's a pretty bike! So, you finished the restore, good job! The pics take me back to the days where I grew up in the woods on Honda XL's. Back then is when I understood my crazy best friends and why they were so wild and scary on dirt bikes, it was all about "cutting loose" to achieve the ultimate riding high. If the bike was dumped but was still ridable it was a good day! If anyone got a scrape, a bruise, a cut, it was still a good day because you don't let something like that stop the fun. The first time I wrecked my friends bike, a little Honda XL 70, I profusely apologized because I'd dented it a little but he just laughed a little and said, "Man, no big deal, that's what dirt bikes are for." and I've lived with that attitude ever since.
  24. They have some nice ones on e- bay for $19. If you don't mind it saying mt-07.
  25. Hey everyone- Just received my new carbon fiber yosh r77 full exhaust system for my 2016 fz07. Soooo stoked. I went back and forth in my mind between different full systems for months. Finally decided on the yoshi. I bought the performance package from 2WDW that comes with an ecu flash and the full yosh exhaust for $915. The exhaust comes straight from the manufacturer and 2WDW does the flash. Awesome deal. So today as I’m installing the exhaust I discover a problem as i am trying to connect the headers to the exhaust manifold. They will not fit together. The yosh headers are a 1/4” smaller in width when u measure the two header pipes end to end. They measure 4 13/16” while the stock exhaust (which comes on and off perfectly) measures 5 1/16”. That’s a 1/4” difference my friends. I even held the two sets of pipes together header to header and it was a clear 1/4” difference. Has anybody else dealt with this problem when installing this yosh exhaust? Is there something I’m missing here? I build machines for a living and to me a 1/4” is a ton to be off on something. I really feel like yoshimura should sell a product that’s fits better than this. Any help or suggestions would so greatly be appreciated!! Thanks a million everyone
