Just put a deposit down on this '18

Recommended Posts

Hope it's not premature to post it here but I'm too excited not to. Going to be picking it up next weekend assuming the weather here in Chicago cooperates. This will be my second bike, coming from a Ninja 300. 

 

Mods planned so far:

Ixil L3XB Black Hyperlow full exhaust 

TST Industries LED integrated tail light, TST MECH-GTR front turn signals, and TST fender eliminator

Shorty levers of an undetermined brand (have't found any I like yet, open to suggestions) 

Also probably Shogun frame/axel sliders at some point

Congrats and welcome to the club. 👍

 

Don't go modding too much until you get some miles on it and let it speak to you and tell you what needs to be a changed. ✌️

Thanks! The TST upgrades are for sure happening right away because I hate the look of the stock signals and the clunky fender. I'll probably ride it with stock exhaust for a bit but I'm not sure how long I'll be able to resist putting the Hyperlow on. Best sounding exhaust on the market imo

Congrats on the new ride! You gotta love that color scheme. Ninja 300's are fantastic bikes, but man, the 07 is gonna feel beastly by comparison! Have fun and ride safe.

Congrats! Be careful with that stiff, twitchy throttle. You'll most likely notice that along with substantial engine braking and want a solution for it. There are a number of options to deal with both and what seems to be the most popular on this site (and for good reason) is a ECU flash from the site vendor, 2WDW. I don't know if the manufacturer of your pipe recommends a tune or not but a flash tune will also help with any excessive decel popping that you may have with that pipe. (which sounds good, btw) It will also eliminate what has been notorious for causing much grief and that's the fuel shut-off. It does so much,

* a must have for any FZ/MT07 owner regardless of whether they bought an aftermarket pipe or not.

Nice! If you got it from Highlands Yamaha I probably saw your bike when I picked mine up. They said it was going out the same day

If you do end up doing your exhaust. Let me know because I'd like to hear it in person. It's hard to tell how exhausts really sound with youtube videos.

I can hear it speaking from here.  It says to take that stupid warning decal off of the tank.

Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

That's not speaking that's screaming. "Take it OFF! IT BURNS!!" 😆
