vespadaddy Posted April 12, 2015 Share Posted April 12, 2015 After being ill for 3 weeks, and waiting for rain to wash away the salt, and waiting for a nice day, I took my maiden voyage on the FJ-09 today. (I hadn't even started the bike, and bought it in Feb). My bike is set up with the factory hard cases, and the Yamaha 50 litre topcase. All bags were attached for the ride. First, the seating position is reminiscent of my old KLR650. It feels like a rolling couch, compared to the sportbikes I have owned previously. Except this rolling couch has a lot more power. After running the bike up through the RPMs, up and down, I opened the throttle in 6th and waited. Each time, same result: smooth power, rapid acceleration, and, at 100 mph (closed course, etc etc etc), the bike began to oscillate. As soon as I rolled off and speeds drop into the 90's, it smoothed out. The bags were all empty. I repeated this several times, with the same results. I'm bringing my bike in for the warranty shift shaft repair tomorrow. I'll pull the bags before I ride it to the dealer, and will report back after the service. I'm curious if it will oscillate with no luggage. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
