Yamaha FJ-09

http://www.motorcycle.com/manufactur...9-preview.html

Interesting competition to the Versys 1000 even though the Yamaha sorta fits in between the 650 and 1000 Versys.

Lots of complains about FZ-09 fuel supply, Cam chain tensioner and fork needs $1,000 rework investing. Yamaha seems just exported all of that into FJ-09 without fixing the issues. At least that's how it sounds in first reports. I'll wait till first test-rides results and see it that's the case. Maybe Yamaha has fixed all of it and didn't tell us? Doubt it...

Yamaha had a "reflash" for the FZ-09 that supposedly will help the issues related to the fuel setting in Mode A. At least what I have read recently. I'd like to think or hope Yamaha would do what it could on the newer bike (FJ-09).

Then again, the FZ-09 is the most popular Yamaha selling now so if they are selling Yamaha won't be in any hurry to correct potential issues.
