  1. You are correct, the 3 piece lock kit will not fit the Yamaha top cases, and the bike doesn't come with an extra lock for a top case. I bought the single key operation lock set 59c-281c0-00-00 This is a lock that comes with various tumblers so you can 'set' the lock to accept your ignition key. The job is a bit finicky with small parts and springs and some careful measuring required but works well in the end. A locksmith would certainly be able to set it for you.
  2. Here’s me with my 1953 R25/2. Since sold the bike, wore out the Bristol gloves , lost the classy leather coat but still have the beard although it changed colour somehow. 😀
  3. Yes, I replied to your P/M
  4. I don't have my Tracer any more but I do have a Yamaha, I'm always looking for an excuse for a ride. Put me on the list.
  5. I bought the OEM chain and sprocket kit, then found out it was too short for my GT. Fits all 09 bikes with short swing arm, I can’t return it because I got the box greasy. 🤬 For sale $250 Canadian.
  6. I bought my GT late Oct 2018 and traded it off in Aug 2019 with 34,400 kms (21,400 miles). One front tire and two rear, plus a chain and sprocket kit.
  7. The edit button disappeared from my original ad, so please note this update. The service manual is SOLD. Many other parts still available.
  8. Wow Mingo, that’s a smoking deal considering I got $9000 for my used GT with 35k on it. $9500 CDN is about $7100 US. This does bring to light how difficult it is to sell a Tracer in Ontario, our insurance rates have really killed a lot of sales of sport bikes. I was paying 50% surcharge and about double the rate of my SuperTenere. I enjoyed riding the GT for 8 months but the cost of insurance and the PITA chain drive took the fun out of it. I have some parts and accessories in the for sale section....... shameless plug!
  9. I've updated my ad with lower prices. Thanks for looking.
  10. I’m enroute to AZ now. I have the lids and manual with me and hope to sell them over the winter but will bring them north in April if you want. Email gardar@wightman .ca to discuss further.
  11. Traded my GT in august, it’s for sale at Stratford Cycle in case anyone is looking. Great bike and lots of fun but fed up with chain drive. Accessories listed in the for sale section.
  12. Still closed as of last week when I rode by.
  13. They will not, unless you also use rear footpeg mounts from 2015-17.
  14. The Tracer has the top saddle bag mounts moulded into the rear bodywork. You still need to buy the lower mounting brackets. Stock FJR panniers and city bags will then fit directly on.
  15. I agree completely, my DCT after 6000 kms of wrist-pain-free riding.
