Looking at the online parts breakdown, the FJ & FZ 09's use different fork assemblies.

Also noticed for 2015 Yamaha has a new cam chain tensioner for the "09" engine. Part # 1RC-12210-03-00 .

According to Yamaha's website, the rake on the FJ is 24* (same as a FZ07) and the FZ is 25*.

No "trail" specs listed for the FZ07/09 for comparison to the FJ.

A test ride on both should answer the question of which one?

I like the idea of shaft drive, cruise on the S10, but the FJ-09 is 120 lbs. lighter which for me points me in that direction.

Anyone know if the headlights can be configured to have both on while on "low"? Never cared for only one light.

That honeycomb plastic between the headlights should be a good bug catcher.
