  1. I just checked my chain and sprockets on my Tracer GT with 12112 miles/19488 kms. The countershaft sprocket has a very slight hook to it, but does not show as much wear as the OP. The rear sprocket looks very good and the OEM chain is just OK. I will be replacing the chain and sprockets at around 13000 miles when the rear tire is replaced. I run the chain slack on the loose end of in spec.
  2. Search EBay for Yamaha FJ 09 rear wheel……there are a few shown for sale at decent prices.
  3. I installed/balanced a new front Shinko 009 front tire, lubed the chain, and washed the bike.
  4. That is insane…..change the oil and filter—then ride it—- a lot. This is an easy bike to change oil……exposed, accessible filter and drain plug. $12.00 oil filter and your choice of oil + 20 minutes of your time. Ride 4000-6000 miles and repeat. BTW, I have not synced the throttle bodies at 11,550 miles and it runs great. I will sync them at some point. I’ve checked the sync on my Super Tenere three times in 47,000 miles and they were spot on all three times.
  5. I currently own the Tracer GT, a 2015 Super Tenere, and a 2021 Tenere 700.....the Tracer GT and Tenere 700 engines are fabulous -- the Super Tenere engine is agricultural by comparison. I've owned 85 motorcycles in 50 years and the only other engine that compares was my ST1300 engine which was sublime.
  6. I have owned a NoMar tire changer and balancer for a dozen years. I used to use a shovel to break the tire bead on most wheels/tires.....works great and a lot easier than tire irons at home.
  7. I just installed a set of Moto Pump handlebar risers.....fit great with great instructions. I also raised the fork tubes about 15mm to quicken the steering. USA manufactured in NY with quick shipping and a fair price.

  8. OP.....if I had half as many problems with my motorcycle that you have indicated, it would have been long gone.....long gone. The difference between bad children and bad motorcycles.....you can get rid of a bad motorcycle.
  9. I am thinking about buying these for my '19 GT. Yamaha FJ-09, MT-09, Tracer 900, Tracer 900 GT Offset Bar Risers 25mm — MotoPumps - The Best 12v Inflators on the Planet Offset Bar Risers for the Yamaha FJ, Tracer, Tracer GT. 2015 through...
  10. I changed out the OEM blue Yamaha coolant on my 2015 Super Tenere at 46500 miles yesterday and replaced it with Shell Zone 50/50 premix coolant safe for aluminum engines. The new stuff is orange and was running about 4 degrees cooler on a 200 mile ride today. YMMV
  11. The original exhaust system fits and works great.👍🏍
  12. I would add one other suggestion.....if you do get off the bike, do not walk back towards the officer as he/she is trying to watch traffic and you.
  13. I like my Ogio tail bag that has been on a few bikes.....built in rain cover and some nice features. OGIO Tail Bag Take whatever you need on your next adventure, be it a day on the open...
  14. With your long distance riding history you could have just worn out the OEM tires in three days of riding....amirite?
  15. Price per tire and expected tread life??
