In light of it being quiet here I thought I would add a short post to review a few things I have done to my 2016 MT09. It might help others decide what to do themselves!
Ok so first off:
K-tech Razor R rear shock / Ktech 20IDS fork cartridges with KTech springs.(9.8cst oil in comp...
Ok so after a couple of hefty trip on the Tracer I am giving serious consideration to getting a gel (or similar) seat pad. There are a couple of points on my anatomy that get really sore on a long ride and spreading my 13st around a bit more evenly might be a good idea... anyone tried anything...
Yamaha MT 09 Super-moto style flat seat with red stitching which gives a little more comfort and a bit higher seat height.
The seat gives a supermoto style riding position and a bit extra height which will benefit taller riders.
I bought this Genuine Yamaha seat for my MT 09 but only used it...
I know this topic has been raised numerous times on here but I've been searching this forum the last couple of days to find the definitive solution to make the Tracer's seat more comfortable to no avail.
I thought mine would bed in as some say it should but after 5000miles I still...
Not sure if anyone has seen, but it looks like Yamaha has dramatically reduced the price of the flat and comfort seats, at least for the early models.
Flat Seat £117, Comfort Seat £126 and vintage seat £58.
as per the title, a factory option low seat, used for 1500 miles only, still boxed, and with the original wrappings.
£225 from Yamaha, grab a 10 week old bargain at £125 so saving you £100
Postage at cost (it's a BIG box).
Collection from York available too.
07815 683535 will get me.
Yeah, I'm not loving it, its a great bike for sure, and is a 2017 model in Forest Green with all the options, ABS / throttle maps and the like, it just doesn't "involve" me.
Clearly, at this mileage, like new, all the bugs get washed off after ever ride and the like, 1st service done at 550...
Original seat grates on my nerves. I am sliding all the time.
You slide because there is a dip. Makes it easier to get your foots flat. Now I am 6 feet tall and don't need that.
Apparently there is street/sport rally seat. Raises the seat height considerably and you can sit wherever you like...
Has anyone found a solution to the uncomfortable standard MT0-9 seat (2015 model), I get bum ache after only 50 miles max.
I have spoken to my Yamaha dealer and they agree the comfort seat sold by Yamaha is no better than the standard seat and is a waste of over £200.
I would appreciate any information from people who have changed the standard screen and or seat. Have been looking at a number of options but would like some feedback from people who have fitted these. Thanks in advance.
After being fobbed off that i couldnt fit a 2017 MT 09 comfort seat to my 2016 model by the Y-shop, Managed to get one from else where. All good fits just as bad as the original ( a bit loose) but looks heaps better, a tad higher and slightly wider, felt weird to begin with but its a big...
After I joined this forum some things reported are about change.
We all like to customise our bikes to our own individual needs but somethings are expensive to correct the bike's mistakes ie spluttering issues at low revs.
The rider seat is a pain after 45 minutes of riding, forks too soft and...
I have my seat on the high setting (still not high enough, but thats for another post).
I feel like I must have done something wrong. There's a gap between the front seat and the rear, and the back of the rider seat bends down and clicks when I put weight on it. It's as though there...
Hi. Anyone out there can give me any info about the low seat for the Tracer. I have the standard seat on the low setting but because I'm only 5-6 I find it awkward on uneven ground. Yamaha do a low seat and I was wondering what people think and if it is worth it or there are better options out...
