Hey Guys and Gals, Its my first post and I thought I'd share my recent Shad 58x top box installation. I did not like the SHAD rack or the SW Motech as much as the Yamaha OEM rack, so that complicated installation slightly. But as you can see from the photos, It can be done! I had to buy a few more bolts and washers than what the SHAD box came with, but I think the end result is quite nice. Post with 0 votes and 2 views.
I haven't seen anything from the usual news outlets and the Yammy web sites are silent as you'd expect. Do we (as in the royal we) have any info on whether the 2020 GT will be much the same as the 2019 or are there significant changes expected? I know the GT hasn't changed much since inception so realistically I don't expect much difference, but I ask because I'm wondering whether to hold off on a purchase or not. Alternatively, if there is no news on the 2020 model, what would we like? I for one would be interested in a) reduction in the 6+K RPM buzz b) TFT/Computer improvements c) Bigger tank d) Better wind protection. In general, a bit better "touring" features. What do others think?
Found this on Amazon for $57 and it stated it fit FZ09 MT09 2017 2018 2019 XSR900 2016 2017 2018 Tracer 900. So I looked up the part numbers for all of those bikes radiators and they were the same part (2PP-12461-00-00). Also, the 2017 FJ09 is same radiator so it should fit that as well. I thought I’d give it a shot, could always send it back. It fit perfectly! Came in a decent cardboard box with bubble wrap and padding to protect it. Pretty thick aluminum sheet that is bent and cut to fit around mounts. I'm sure it would take a huge rock to get past it. Hexagonal holes that look like they should flow air just fine. Looks like black powder coating which seems pretty tough. I did put a crescent wrench on it to bend ends in a hair so it fit tighter against radiator mounting points. Didn’t scratch it at all. In photos, first one is the damage on my radiator from 10,000 miles of riding. Got lucky that the radiator didn’t get punctured from the rock that hit at the top. Put a nice dent in it. All the other white spots in photo are small paint chips from gravel. Roads in NC, TN, and GA have a good amount of small loose gravel on them. Second photo is of the guard alone with the small brackets from the bike next to it. These mount on the outside of guard and is where the plastic push pin goes that holds side plastics in place. Stock bolts in photo fit fine, length was adequate. Third photo is on bike without plastics in place yet. Very easy install I should have done a long time ago. Highly recommend this add-on. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07N37TLK1/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
