  1. Not at all...feels more stable/less chassis movement but the challenge is "re wiring" my feelings/sensations after 21k miles on stock wheel base...
  2. Also, the location of my turbo is not good for wheelies as it does not allow proper drainage of oil from turbo... dont bother me one bit as wheelies are not important to motorcycling in general...
  3. If Yamaha keeps the turbo size at a decent size and not try to keep downsizing turbo sizes to keep squeezing more efficiency the general reliability of turbos is very good... long term usage of turbos were the efficiency is always near max rpms tend to wear out fairly quicker...
  4. With the less than 5% hearing I have...nope but I have been told it sounds soooo effing good!!!
  5. It's very linear power delivery as is but you can get it to "hit" off the line... going up hill or fighting the "air walls" off semis you will see the boost automatically go up to compensate for the extra load but I dont even notice the bike fighting the "air walls" or going uphill now vs old set up...
  6. Actually no if you took the orginal fz-07 2014/15 price my bike at like $6k and the $3k cost for the turbo kit/extras... Very exclusive upgrade but could and would be cheaper if it was mass produced... To turbo a FZ/MT/Tracer-09 is waaaaay more expensive tho at over $7k...
  7. I'm already in the future 😆 Turbo FZ/MT-07... very similar peak HP/TQ numbers as its bigger CP3 sibling...
  8. Only one side stays on, while the other side stays dim during normal running operations...then the other side turns on when HI beam is selected... both lights do not light up as LOW beam during normal operations...
  9. I did an experiment a month ago with my turbo FZ-07... Yoshi exhaust can was the benchmark for nice stubble loudness in my opinion...size was like 53mm outlet by 280mm length I believe but it was a hex shaped can... Had 3 aftermarket round exhaust cans of various sizes... #1: 51mm outlet x 180mm length was way louder than Yoshi #2: 51mm outlet x 270mm length was quieter than #1 but not #3 #3: 61mm by 180mm length was slightly louder than Yoshi but way better sound... #3 was the winner... I also understand different motors, its potential power adder and exhaust can shape/construction changes exhaust sounds...
  10. Swingarm arm bolt, rear shock linkage bolt or rear shock dog bone bolts are probably worn out...
  11. When I lived in Northern Cali- I could chew up tires on cars/bikes due to the extra coarse road surface vs now in Michigan where the road surface is smooth as an orange peel... Abrasive roads chew up tires...
  12. Yes it has throttle cables to move the electronics tucked under the airbox by the throttle bodies...
  13. A lot of bikes will come back when forced induction comes along... rather it's a turbo or supercharger but not NOS... My little turbo FZ-07 has similar HP/TQ numbers as my FJ-09 but the turbo bike has a much much broader TQ curve than my FJ-09
  14. No I have a 2015 FJ-09 with aftermarket cruise control... Only JDM requirement I know of is the exhaust... I'm am definitely curious if there is a factory cruise control limit for JDM TracerGT or any other JDM restrictions...
