    I've decided to sell my tracer 700. going for the tracer 900. want to do a bit of touring before I get to old.lol with riding two up the 700 does have it short comings. would like a bit more oomph not so much speed just bottom end power.

    my tracer.

    next year I'm considering moving up to a tracer 900. went touring over 6 days and did 1400 miles to Scottish highlands, and found that I could do with a bit more power. granted most other riders were on a thou bikes. going again next year with just my wife and we'll see how it goes. we'll see how I feel if I need to go up or stay with what I've got.

    this sprocket will fit ok..https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/JT-17-tooth-525-pitch-front-sprocket-for-Yamaha-TDM-850-99-01-H-91-96-N-91-93/282515313867?fits=UKM_Make%3AYamaha&hash=item41c73994cb:g:h7cAAOSw-29ZOR7H when I bought this chain oiler it was only about 50 uk pounds but now its 100 uk pounds. I would pay that now. heres a cheaper alternative http://www.loobman.co.uk/ or you could make your own its easy enough.

    Factory FJ09 centerstand?

    no they dont.its an after market thing if you want one. I had one on and bloody useless so sold it on. it was an effort to to get the bike up and not only that it would ground out on left hand corners.
