I’ve traded my 2016 MT-09 tracer in (& got an Africa Twin). I stripped most of the parts off before trading it in, so now have several bits for sale.
My bike was a 2016 & had only done 5500 miles. Please check for yourselves if the parts will fit other models/years.
All are in very good...
What type of plugs do Yamaha fit? Are they standard or iridium/platinum?
My last bike had iridium plugs as standard but Suzuki service schedule said change them every 7500miles. A waste of time & money as iridium plugs are good for 30000+ miles!
BTW i bought an adapter with croc clips to use with the compressor, (direct off the battery).

Probably just the switch has got a bit sticky from not being used. Tried mine last week for the first time this year & mine wasn’t working either. After stamping on the brake pedal 10-20 times it started working again. If that didn’t sort it, i would have tried pulling the spring which connects...
I’ve seen ‘Harpic Power Plus Max 10’ recommended by several people on bike forums. Never tried it myself so cannot confirm if its any good, but is cheap so maybe worth a go. (Though maybe try a small inconspicuous area first!)
Search on YouTube & there’s plenty of vids on there of people using...
I've also got to do this, as just bought a Tomtom rider. There are 2 spare connectors behind the screen/dash. I've already used 1 to install a second accessory socket. I'm hoping to use the other for the Tomtom. Not yet decided whether i buy a plug or just cut off the existing one & crimp/fix it on.
I've got Powerbronze handguards fitted. Haven't notice any difference from the originals!
Only wobble I've had was at about 125mph (over the mountain I.O.M) & that was with a lot of blustery side winds as well.

I remember reading about a problem that customers were having on Audi cars. A warning light would come on & they had to go to the dealers to have it reset. But they were told it only came on after the ecu had registered the fault 5 times! Maybe Yamaha's are the same??
Lots on the Suzuki Vstrom forum have bought them. They get good reviews - reasonable price, good quality & good customer service (even though they're Polish & English is not their first language!).
Probably more popular on there than Suzuki, Givi or any other make.
The most worrying part of your post is that you clean/lube the chain with the engine running & in first gear.
I've seen pictures on the internet of people who have lost fingers doing just that. I'd really suggest not doing it.
The year your bike was made & the year it was registered can be different. Sometimes bikes can sit in dealers for ages before being sold/registered. I've heard of bikes built 2 years before being registered!
If ordering parts, you need to go by the year it was built.
