    Not sure if anyone is left at Yamaha Corporate U.S.A. and that would even take a phone call :bow

    Might serve your patience some if you could get a bit high level information on the supply plan for the next six months

    Think regional Rep and Yam corp contact.

    Agreed. Just doing my first oil change I was amazed at how tight the drain plug bolt was and even the filter itself. I had to muscle those things off.

    So, I tend to ease into new bikes (new to me, whether used or new), just so I get a feel for them. Tonight I did a relatively short 45-mile loop. Very little dirt, but on the pavement, I figured it was time to wring her out a little, okay wring her out a lot. Oh, Man! I really like this engine. Makes me think I might like to give the FZ/MT-07 a look. I was having a great little hooligan time on it. Every ride on this thing gets better and better.

    Gentlemen, if you are being persuaded towards a road bike by the 700 motor I suggest you try the triple, too. It's hilarious.

    Put the 12mm pins on the outermost three locations, and the 10mil pins on all the others.

    After selling my F800gsa travel bike, and my 990smt touring bike, I'm left with the current stable:

    200exc
    Fe501s, both wheelsets ;)
    T700
    950sm

    A pretty good assortment for my needs.

    Very true. The FZ-09 and the Kawasaki Z900 motors are beasts.

    I would love to buy a 500exc or 501. Had a WR250R and loved it, and it’s like that bike on steroids times 2.

    However I’m a 1 bike guy for now and have to truck it to get to any good dirt riding. I would probably only ride it once or twice a month because of the hassle doing it. A T7 is a good compromise bike and I can enjoy it more often since it has better street manners.

    So I tell myself anyway. I second guess my decision every 10 minutes lol. T7is on preorder but I have parts laying around for it. Still not too late, but I dunno.

    The more I push this thing, the more I think the diminutive FZ07 would be unbelievably fun.

    I had a wr250r with all the power mods and both wheelsets.
    Rode the "hardest trail in California " according to ThumperTalk. Took me 4 hours to go 8 miles.

    But that bike?
    I nearly died of boredom.

    I went from a DR250 to a KTM 350 EXC-F, that’s when I learned how Popeye felt after downing spinach.

    I don't know about all that.

    Easy install. I used to have a set of the Evo3 on a DR 650 I put a ton of desert miles on.

    I let them stay with the bike.

    The thing about the Fastway EVOs that make them more of an "investment" than other pegs and makes them worth the money is that with a different "fit kit" you can move them on to your next bike.
