  1. Your way over thinking it I believe with the balancing weight wise... keeping the overall look balanced, yes I can see the symmetry... the gilles logo is on one, the lock screw is opposite of the logo and as for the "holes" and they way they cut out material around the "socket points" , it just looks nice to me, looks like a factory race part, they put some effort into the part... did they need to make it the way they did? No, but don't forget it adds .05HP/TQ πŸ˜…
  2. Recieved my Gilles Ti rear axle nut... uses the same sized socket as OEM and gets torqued to OEM specs, then use a small hex key to engage the lil black thread locker...to remove just remember to disengage the lil black thread locker and then proceed to remove axle nut...
  3. Enjoy the new bike, againπŸ˜…... seriously these rules/regs Yamaha gotta follow mask the true power of these motors... Them headers are heavy eh?? BTW--The springs pull the header pipe into that exhaust port flange since they slip on to the header..the flange gets bolted to the exhaust port but it don't clamp/secure the header pipe from popping out, that's what the springs are for...
  4. Woolich Racing is also has an office/shop in QLD last I checked about 3yrs ago when talking to them about ECU flashing for the FJ-09... also Extreme Creations just north of Sydney may be able to help you... maybe KevTx(?) Can help out... Mainly the ECU reflash removed the 114mph speed limiter, smoothed out the engine behavior, turned the decal injection back on( its OFF on OEM which gives the engine more engine braking feeling or touchy throttle to some ppl) lower fan temps to kick on earlier, set the default power mode selection you want, can disable closed loop fueling( aka eco mode) if software allows it, disable AIS(mainly it reduces the burble/popping with aftermarket exhaust).. you will lose a few MPG with the reflashed ECU as AFRs get a tad richer to smooth out the engine, the decel injection turned back on which will also reduce the engine braking/smooth out throttle... A ECU reflash usually goes hand in hand with an aftermarket exhaust but it is still pretty beneficial if one is running stock exhaust... Also there is products such as PowerCommander which is a "piggy back" solution( its maps run best on an ECU that still has the OEM ign/fuel values) or FTech Active Tune... My ECU was flashed via 2WDW using Woolich Software... I even also further smoothed out the throttle by adjusting the Acceleration Position Sensor( APS sensor) which seems to be set at a value of "17" to a value of "13" which I could do at home thanks to having an early year bike which allowed the owner to see/test/adjust the various sensors via the dashboard...
  5. I looked up the "kit" and found an installation video... no need to add resistors, so its plug n play... in the video I could see 2 black pins(?) that are installed in the back of the connection...
  6. @Larz- yes the ECU may be different but they copied the "map values" and transferred the "values" to my ECU... I will try to grab a picture when I can as bike is currently sitting with no wheels or suspension to wheel it outside for some pictures...
  7. There will be a full rainbow of colors one day πŸ˜… on the headers... Mine took like a good hard 5k miles... I had mine tuned via 2WDW( used Woolich Software)...they used the shop bike which was a FZ-09 with Graves Exhaust... I feel when using the 'baffle" the low rpm power feeling is much more noticeable than running w/o baffle... running w/o baffle has a better midnight-redline power feeling than running with baffle..nice bonus is the same tune is good for with or without the baffle... Psst!!! I see missing header springs 🧐
  8. Clockwise= same direction clock hands move for easy remembering
  9. for those of youse who like having a sparkling cleanish rear shock- I recommend this.. IIRC it's for a 450cc sized dirt bike rear shock, it was something I won in a raffle...its been on since day 1 and never been off till now... 10k miles later, OEM noodle looks a bit dusty but shiny/cleanish... It's a neoprene sleeve with velcro tape...the neoprene material is approx 3mm thick...the ends of the sleeve have a thick elastic band that pulls it tight around the shock mounting points..
  10. Hhhmmm... just spent $ on both bikes... do I need another bike??? That will give me a FZ-07, FJ-09 and a MT-10... πŸ€”... gonna need to think this over...
  11. At the local motorcycle shop... Yamaha 525 sized sprocket and pick your teeth count... 16T is stock count, I went with 15T... Here is a link for Revzilla: Vortex 525 Front Sprocket Yamaha | 15% ($4.65) Off! ...
  12. Clutch switch, is bike in N, tilt sensor...maybe key is not fully turned?
  13. I never bothered with all the other ideas- main culprit is the front sprocket- replace with a plain jane one that don't have a rubber damper...
