2015 FJ 09 Luggage rack swap to 2019 Tracer 900 GT

Recommended Posts

Does anyone happen to know if an aftermarket luggage rack for a 2015 FJ 09 will fit a 2019 Tracer 900 GT.  Saw what might be a good buy on a GT and would like to reuse the luggage rack and top case. Thanks

I cant say for sure but it SHOULDN'T fit, the rear of the bike is shaped differently.

What rack do you have? I installed a SW Motech rack for the 2015 FJ 09 on my GT 900; it bolted up ok, but required some trimming of the plastic trim to fit where the front bracket attaches.A04B0385-EBBE-4544-BF56-026A04D937AF.thumb.jpeg.dcd9ecf8e19f3d83cd9d11ead3e5f860.jpeg

Morning all, thanks for the information, it is an 2015-2016 Yamaha FJ-09 SW Motech Rear Rack

It will work then. Where the front tabs enter from the sides under the seat, the plastic trim will have to be trimmed, since the angled entry holes for the GT rear grab handles enter at an angle. I just used a Dremel with a rotary bit to trim. It does make the opening larger, but it looks ok to me. The other issue mine had though, was that the back of the Corbin seat contacted the front edge of the rack platform, so I had to grind material from the front edge of the platform. I then cut a short section of fuel line hose lengthwise, and covered the grinded edge  with the tubing section with a little black RTV sealant to hold it in place. Looks pretty good to me. So, in summary, the rack attaches fine, but requires a little modification.

Sounds good, if you happen to have any pictures closeup of the trim area, Would be nice to see. Thanks for the information, Did you move from a JF 09 to the 900 GT? Is so, was it worth it? I have added heaters grips to my FJ. It has about 12K Miles

20190420_095913.thumb.jpg.f4ae956731f357220fd1d6e0489ee2e4.jpgThis is a better shot. I really liked my FJ 09's (had two of them,) but like the GT 900 a lot more. More refined, but still just as much raw power as the FJ. Less wheelie prone and more stable at speed with the longer swingarm, and the cruise control, tft gauge, etc, is great.

Also, as you can see, no trimming of the front of the rack platform was needed with the stock seat.  That was done later after adding the Corbin.

It might, the basic bolt holes line up the same. Don’t know about the bodywork though.

I'll give it a shot, and report back!
