  1. I have a Ducati Hyper as well and it went from 821 to 939 to address the power lose to meeting stricter standards. Output remained the same. Only real difference is that the 939 seems to be a hotter running bike. I assume as it is running leaner - do not know for sure - just an observation.
  2. Be careful of going for the cheap Chinese knock off levers as others have found they do not work on the GT with the cruise control. I went for EvoTech at 99 pounds. https://evotech-performance.com/collections/all/products/ep-yamaha-tracer-900-gt-folding-clutch-and-brake-lever-set-2018-onwards I think others have been able to modify the cheaper ones to work. I have been very happy with the evo tech. They will adjust very close to the bar. If others on this site that do not have a GT comment that all levers should work, I would suggest you tread carefully - go with advice from someone that has modified the levers for a GT.
  3. Good for you - I came off a larger and more powerful Sport Tourer - very happy with the lighter weight and great motor.
  4. Congratulations. What bike did you move from?
  5. Clint, I couldn't find your original post in the link you provided. This is what you are using? http://www.s428895111.onlinehome.us/blog/downloads/files/Press Releases/17-/13-/13-325.pdf The metric version fits the FJ rim valve opening ok? Vince
  6. I have the same dolley, heavy sucker. I am in the US, but I recall it was a Melbourne company making them.

  8. Well done on the new bike. Lots of chain oiler stuff here: https://www.tracer900.net/search/?q=scottoiler&quick=1 Vince
  9. Hurricane, Cyclone and Typhoon all describe the same weather event, just depends what part of the world you are in. Tornado forms over land.
  10. @BrianG it is a great point. I have two Ducatis with fly by wire. One (Multistrada) has cables to box that sends the signal to the throttle bodies similar to the FJ and that feels good. The other one (Hyper) has the throttle wired to the throttle through an electronic position sensor (similar to a rheostat?) that tells the ECM how much to open the butterfly. That feeling sucks compared to the cable arrangement. Very poor feel for the throttle. Feels like a rubber band with a delay. Cable arrangement is good!
  11. Oh well, another $129 headed into the "pit".🙂 Reminded me - one of the guys here has the signature block, "when I die don't let my wife sell my stuff for what I told her I paid for it". I need to put that in my will.
  12. Congratulations - good to get excited about a new ride, eh!
  13. Hey @nhchris at least the average IQ of the forum has gone up since the "dip-shit" GT owners joined ...👍
  14. My original warranty expires in Mar 2020. I will likely do Y.E.S. for the peace of mind. I see this site doing the coverage at a discount rate, $443 (+6% MI sales tax) versus Yamaha $590. Noting the comments above about some states not allowing the undercutting (I am in VA), are these guys legit? Buy Yamaha Y.E.S. Plans Online Buy Yamaha Extended Service Warranty Plans Online at...
