my tracer.

now that I've done a couple of thou miles since sprocket change .

I'm averaging 70/74 mpg (uk gal)

that work out roughly 37 miles extra to a tankful.

a much better and smoother ride,not looking for that 7th gear anymore.

also I've notice I stay in each gear a little longer.

overall I'm very pleased with the bike.

hopefully you guy will get  them sooner or later.

It only took us 2 years to get the xsr700.

I wonder how the suspension varies between the FZ/MT-07 and the Tracer? I'm curious if a tracer rear shock would be an affordable,bolt-in option to cure the under-damped 07 shock.

Me too. ;)

I doubt there's any difference.

 

The fact remains that it's still an emulsion-style shock built to a very low budget.

Maybe the spring might be a bit stiffer for improved 2up riding? I think it would also help accommodate the longer swingarm.

The spring would have to be stiffer even if all the other components were the same because the Tracer is much heavier.

If they have used the same parts for the linkages, the spring would also have to be even heavier ( note IF), because the swingarm is longer ,so has more leverage on the shock.

 

Did I mention I want that swingarm????

Haha thats what i meant when i mentioned the swingarm. Do you think it would be possible to replace the stock spring with the tracer one? I wonder if that would be a suitable replacement while waiting to do a proper upgrade
