  1. Mine did it from day 1 but it wasn't "marbles in the basket" type of loud. It more like a newer washing machine running on spin cycle until I pulled the clutch in and it went away. One thing of note, it's pretty common on the CP3 from my readings of the FZ9's and some FJ09's that hard dropped wheelies and tracking the bike (really spirited rides) have been causing cracks in the clutch basket itself. If it seems much louder than it normally is the first thing I would do is pop off the clutch cover and inspect the basket for cracks, then check out the plates. Sometimes the cracks might only be a hairline but they pop up often enough in searches for it to be something to look out for IMO.
  2. I wasn't a big fan of the stock tires in the rain but other than that they were pretty good. They didn't seem to wear all that bad either compared to other tires I had on other bikes.
  3. The bike is sold. I appreciate all the assistance and wonderful information this forum brought and was happy to contribute where I could. Wishing you all sunny days ahead!
  4. Update - Sale Pending currently with a deposit on the bike.
  5. Night and day better than stock. I bought some cheap led ones off eBay/Amazon that were junk and hardly noticable. These are extremely bright and well worth the investment.

  7. Thanks for the good luck. I don't see any under 12k in the Northeast new...so I don't think it's that aggressive considering it has a few add-ons with it. I'm also curious if whatever you're seeing has the typical get you into the store, tach on 800 for prep, 300 for tags and tax not included but I can't see that in my general area. When I sort by lowest in cycle trader the next bike in the list is 12k (plus fees).
  8. Should check steering head bearing torque. It's part of the 600 mile maintenance.
  9. I've known quite a few people that have medical disabilities who ride three wheels because that's all they can ride. While I agree the Niken looks a bit awkward, this post is no different than all the Harley riders hating on bikers who ride anything else other than Harley. Meh to this post.
  10. I didn't see (or completely missed) a Tracer GT sale section so if this is in the wrong spot please feel free to move it for me. The short story is that I love my GT but am having a baby (and she's due next week) and I have serious doubts that I'll be able to ride or want to ride with what free time I have left. I'm looking to sell the bike locally and have a very small loan remaining. If anyone is interested in the bike feel free to contact me directly here to come see it. I live in the Stroudsburg, PA area. I've also sold numerous bikes without any issues in the past. See attached details on everything included: 2019 Yamaha TRACER 900 GT, Brodheadsville PA - - Cycletrader.com WWW.CYCLETRADER.COM Check out this 2019 Yamaha TRACER 900 GT listing in Brodheadsville, PA 18322 on Cycletrader.com. It is a Sport Touring Motorcycle and is for sale at $10600.
  11. I never used that hole on the top to tighten the mirrors..typically I back out the mirror a bit, put a cloth and wrench on the bottom nut, tighten that up then turn the mirror clockwise to tighten the whole assembly. I never took off the black piece to tighten the nut for the mirrors, coincidentally I somehow lost one of the damn buttons when the bike was being stored at my brothers house over the winter and I think he may have used the wrench to un-tighten them and turn them in. Just bought 2 of them from the parts warehouse at like 3 bucks each.
  12. Control the wrist, control the bike. Between the tracer (850cc) and a 650 IMO there isn't THAT much of a difference in power to warrant a massive concern. I can't imagine most would think going with a non-ABS 650 over an ABS 850 is the right compromise, I think the opposite personally. I'd be way more concerned about an inexperienced rider locking up their brakes in a panic situation. The inexperienced getting into accidents because the bike is too fast are not from lack of experience but from lack of respect for how quickly they'll be killed on a bike. Step 1 should be to find a motorcycle safety foundation program and ride the course. Yes, you have a scooter already but even riding for years I'll occasionally retake the class or an advanced class be we inevitably build bad habits and it can help to greatly reduce those habits or at least be aware of them. Step 2 get a bike that's comfortable and has some form of traction control as a new rider, I've venture to guess more riders (who are older and aren't playing Joe rocket with the throttle) are hurt by panic stops or slick stops over goosing the throttle in a curve. I'd say go with whatever has more safety features and has a reduced power mode to work with for a while, that and remember, with great power comes great responsibility.
  13. I'm curious on this too, I'd like to see what the differences is on the sargent vs. a corbin before I pull the trigger.
  14. Well I can tell you it didn't happen to me today and I turned my bike on and off a few times
  15. First bath of the season. Also shows off the nice LED lights I added last year.
