    Side Panniers.....

    Thanks for the reply. I have bought 2 Givi E36 panniers but the rack I had planned to use used the curved fitting rather than the flat type which I need! I lost out on an auction by £2 grrrrr! Thanks again

    Side Panniers.....

    Does anyone know if there is a rack which fits using the rails on the MT09 Tracer?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks...

    Side Panniers.....

    Hi all I have just bought a set of Givi E36 panniers to go onto my Mt09 tracer 2016, and also got a rough rack with the view to refurbing it. The rack is a Kappa Quick release Monokey k33 side case holder. Has anyone fitted one of these to their tracer and also are the instructions off the...

    Uncomfortable seat

    I had mine set to the lowest as I struggled to see through the rain on the screen and the visor. I have set it to the highest setting and I seem to like it at that height although I am a mere 5'7" in heels!!! I have 'treated' it with rain X but not very successful. I also have got the comfort...

    Which Exhaust system

    Has anyone managed to adapt the original exhaust on the Tracer to make it sound fruitier? I can't afford to change the exhaust system atm but would love it to sound a tad more throaty. Any easy mods that you know of? I have seen YouTube videos of cutting the baffle box in half and changing the...

    Done similar to you mate. The Givi instructions leave a lot to be desired but where I got thrown completely, was the bottom bar is the original one. I had to source a fitting kit myself and made it up from bolts bought spacers made from measurements off the instructions but got there in the...

    *****aftermarket ecu flash*****

    I havent met the previous owner but from the dealer was telling me, he was a perfectionist and also a blood biker so I am guessing not. (not that being a blood biker is in any way boring, in fact, I used to be one myself before I went on the lorries as their voluntary work is mainly due the...

    *****aftermarket ecu flash*****

    I don’t even begin to understand how or the benefits of flashing the ECU on the bike. However, I watched a video on YouTube of how to quickly get rid of the snatchy throttle response by changing a setting with the mixture delivery (I think!!?) this has made a huge difference but not too sure...
