    Not sure if there was one already but thought I'd give er a go.

    3 changes on day 2 of ownership...

    Moved the adjustable handlebars rearward...much more comfortable

    Zip tied the rear abs line and put a dab of goop where it was rubbing the brake line banjo bolt..

    Shit canned the flimsy rear reflector mount and gooped it up higher

    Ran into my first problem....was installing some Wolfman engine guard bags and noticed the cover to the ignition coil was loose...turned into a PITA as I had to retap the frame mounting area...

    Installed Grip Puppies, trying a Touratech wind deflector from my BMW, installed Akropovic slip on.
    Exhaust sounds great...
    It’s pouring rain and I can’t get plates to ride legally until next week at the earliest...
    I’ll put up better pictures soon...

    The week that I spent with it in India, didnt notice that. Though it is generally hotter in most parts of india than here.

    How much did the Akra cost you?
    Also, I have the ebay version of that touratech spoiler on my FZ- works the same!

    Was supposed to have it delivered today. Error code being thrown while trying to unlock the bike as part of prep requiring a call to KTM Austria.
    Can't really complain, as I'm getting delivery to the house from about 100 miles away for free. One more day...arg....

    “Sounds better” means : louder, less anemic.
    Lighter- didn’t weigh it- but I’d say it’s a little lighter.
    Looks way way way better.
    Cost - more than it should, and what I was willing to pay...
    All subjective and my personal taste/opinion.

    there are some indian dyno charts showing about a 4hp increase in the mid range, with hi flow filter and ecu mod.

    On chain adjustment...1/4" deflection with the rear tire elevated...all fine for the shop but it would be nice if the owners manual gave a "out on the road"
    Measurement...

    Best I can tell after having just doing it with all things new....that 1/4" looks about like 1/2"
    With the rear tire on the ground unloaded.

    Speaking of owners manuals...one of the best I have ever owned...

    Anybody putting Handlebar risers on ?
    I went to put some Anti-Vibe Rox Risers on that I had and turns out the stem is too short.

    Talked to Rox Risers and they make an extended stem specifically for Yamaha Teneres and FZ-09's that have slanted clamps...

    Rox Riser P/N... 1R-P2PPS10A
    Guess that's what I need.

    what is the bar size at the clamps, if about 1 1/8 maybe the 790 risers may work?

    Are these 2 inches? Anything more than an inch doesn’t fit the stock cables

    It can can be a flash, add on ,replacement or simple as a resistor to fool the ecu thinking it was a cooler day.
    Mod means different things to day, being old school ,it meant a modification of the existing parts.
    Today anything just bolted on or taken off is also considered a mod. We used custom as indicating specially fabbed parts- one of a kind, today it could be mean personal choosing from a catalogue of parts.
    there are several 390 adv dyno runs on you tube.

    In malaysia I had a ecu that was tuneable by android phone on our FZ150.
    would like to see that used more widely but the price we paid-$150 US ,I see it more like $500 in the west on other models.
    Took it off along with the pipe , no Yamaha shops would touch it, except in Chiang Rai?
    the sprocket change to a tooth smaller was the biggest improvement which I will do to the 390 adv.
