    Front fork mods

    It's that time of year to get some modifications done and I'm think front forks (I have a ZX6RR rear shock fitted). Has anyone fitted K-Tech's springs, valve kit and compression adjusters? did you do it yourself? if not, who fitted them? what oil and weight? And what's your verdict on the...

    Rattle from front forks.

    2015 - MT 0-9 abs. I recently fitted a plastic fender extender to the front mudguard to keep the muck off the radiator, but have noticed a rattling noise which appears to come from the front forks area when riding over bumps in the road. I don't know if the noise is being amplified by the...

    Front Brakes

    The front brakes on the tracer always felt a bit spongy and didn't really inspire.. At all! I could easily pull the lever almost all the way in to the grip on all but the widest setting.. Being a new bike I never really though much of it, they worked well enough to bring it to a halt quick sharp...

    Movement in front end when slowing down/stopping.

    Hi, I'm on my 6th Yamaha ;) I love them. Decided to get rid of my MT 07 and get the MT 09 Tracer. I've had it a good few months but recently I've noticed when slowing down and coming to a stop the front end becomes wobbly and as you come to a stop it feels like the handlebars are tilting...

    Pilot road 4

    Hi all This may sound a bit strange but has anyone had a bad experience with the pr4s? I fitted a pair just before I had the suspension upgraded by MCT who reworked the forks and fitted a nitron r1 rear shock. Initially I ran them at 36/36 psi , I have steadily decreased the pressure to 30/32...

    Tyres

    Been away from bikes for a while (6yrs) anyway got myself an MT09 in October, mine came with Dunlop sport max on it and I've not had any issues but not overly convinced with wet weather performance. What have people used ? My favorites in the past were a Bridgestone 010 front 020 rear but...

    Cleaned chain today

    Nothing strange about cleaning the chain. I had a good go at it today removed the front sprocket cover for the first time since I owned the bike. I run with a Tutoro oiler which is a great bit of kit.I was amazed though at the amount of oily residue around the front sprocket and engine casings...
