  1. HM Quickshifter never replied to 3 emails over about a month. Reactive Parts sourced this IRC Quickshifter / Blipper which took ages to arrive due to Covid / Brexit Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  2. As per title im after an aftermarket quick-shifter, blipper recommendation for my Tracer 900, 2017. I say aftermarket because as far as I know, adding the OEM one wouldn't give downshift / blip. I've been looking at this one from HM: http://hmquickshifter.com/?post_type=product&p=8828&preview=true But I'd like to hear first hand feedback from other forum users on what they have fitted.

  3. Awesome! Very much appreciated!!! Makes total sense now. So much for Yamaha main dealers... makes me furious all over again Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  4. Hi Folks, After the 12k miles service my Tracer 900 came back with a loose chain and finger tight rear axle nut! Some months later I noticed that the clutch cable was getting trapped between the lower triple clamp and the frame. I bodged it with Gorilla Tape and I'm now at the 24k miles service and doing it myself this time so I want to correct the issue but I don't know what the proper routing should be? I've looked through the service manual and the Haynes manual but either missed it or its not in there. The Haynes manual shows the cable guide near the radiator but not what happens higher up from there... If someone could share a photo of theirs that would be amazing.

  5. Indeed cowboys were involved, but it's not what you expect from a Yamaha main dealer! Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  6. First Post here, Apologies if this is a common question. I've just removed the forks for the first time (by me at least), 2017 Tracer 900. They're being sent away to get new internals fitted - Nitron It doesn't seem right that one fork leg has no damping whatsoever, neither in compression nor rebound. I can hear that it has oil in it... and the manuals show that it should contain damping components... The only time the forks have been touched before was by a yamaha dealer for the 12k miles fork oil change. When the bike came back the new chain that they fitted was slack and the axle nut finger tight. Some time later I found the clutch cable incorrectly routed and pinched against the frame at full steering lock... Given the amount of errors in that service, I'm wondering whether the affected fork was incorrectly reassembled. 1) Is it correct that only one fork leg should have damping? 2) If incorrect... any theories on what error may have been made?
