    I hope that wont void the warranty. I believe triple cylinder bikes are new to PI workshops.

    Now am just waiting for the more touring friendly MT-09F (Fairing version), or even better still the TDM-09!!! Haha!!!

    Will start to push the bike harder now.

    woah 2.66 litre only!

    that is not alot for a class 2 machine.

    what oil did they used? yamalube?

    Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car
    and oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car.
    Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall,
    torque is how far you take the wall with you.

    Yes, based on manual, 2.4l without replacing oil filter and 2.7l if you replace oil filter.

    Probably yamalube, couldn't see what they use.

    Fellow MT-09 riders. Seems like theres some issues with my MT(hope nothing Major).
    Whenever I engage gear & still in full clutch, when I rev, the bike will be like wanting to jerk forward and making a weird sound, like a knock..something like 'tock'. Cant really figure where exactly but definitely engine area. Actually this has been quite sometime but its getting harder and louder man. Didnt really thought about it cause intially, thought it was normal when still running in. And the bike seems to slow down even harder now when close throttle, giving something like a sudden jerkiness. The level of the issue increases when the riding mode increases too. Im so stresssss. Did some research and seems like europe side are facing diff issue but not major..something about their cam tensioner which I seriously have no idea what the heck is that.

    Anyone facing same issue as mine??

    Hopefully tomorrow can get half day then can go HL

    Im making a wild guess - Could be transmission fluid problems, a worn clutch or cam/ timing belt lor. Not a mechanic here.... so dont take my words seriously. Haha!

    Major or not, will be covered by warranty. It'll need a few days in workshop to fix it if need replace the clutch/ belt.

    A cam chain tensioner allows proper locked tension of the cam chain by avoid jumping of the chain because of failure of standards tensioners. This gadget gives the engine builder more accurate engine timing, enhancing and confidence in knowing the tension is locked properly. The tensioner is developed in pre anodised colours depending on the model and its capacity.

    it's a very small piece of metal only

    BTW, how's the temperature while riding the MT-09, during hot sun timing and traffic jam kind?
    Regards,
    kifakw

    Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car
    and oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car.
    Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall,
    torque is how far you take the wall with you.

    Thanks all for ur inputs..really hope its nothing major especially anything to do with engine. Hopefully HL can settle it like a breeze ~

    as for @kifakw the temperature was a hindrance for me initially as its my 1st cls 2 bike, think am getting used to it. Believe its not as heaty as R6. Tested during jam too at checkpoint for ard 1 hr+-, that was quite annoying..ahha. The other thing is, seems to only feel the heat on the left side and it blows below ur thigh area.

    Aite, am trying to sleep not thinking bout the bike..ahha. Night all!

    managed to go to HL just now and was convince that it was normal after running in. took them almost 3 hrs of convincing though..lol.

    So, 2 mechanics rode it, the 1st agreeing with the 'tock' sound whenever rev in full clutch while cruising but no idea what its about, so the second tried and agreed on the sound too and told me that the distance between the spocket and clutch is big, thus giving that 'tock' sound & jerkiness when rev while cruising. Only remedy he can provide was longer freeplay which somehow did lessen the 'tock' a bit. Well, for the meantime..dont wanna think much about it. Hopefully will get use to this jerkiness.

    Anyway, enq about the MT-09 flyscreen too, need to order and place 50% deposit..ard 1 mth. Price: $195

    it sure is annoying. believe this is the jerkiness as per most reviews mentioned. if this cant be rectified, this gonna be my most hated part of the bike. the 2nd part most hated would be the back splash, hopefully it'll be rectified once box installed.

    Jerkiness from throttling ah? Its pretty normal for ride-by-wire technology. Afterall, its still in first-2nd gen tech. Still pretty new. Let it stabalize and see how! But if you want all the different riding modes, bo bian, need ride by wire lor instead of the normal throttle cable....

    yeah, the jerkiness is actually not my main concern, its the 'tock' sound thats freaking annoying..making me feel unsafe.

    ride it like you stole it; after running in, and you'll forget about the tock sound and back splash. hahhaha

    what's the back splash that you are referring to???
    Regards,
    kifakw

    Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car
    and oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car.
    Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall,
    torque is how far you take the wall with you.

    i see, how about sourcing for something like a "Rear mudguard extender" ; it might help in reduce

    or a deflector at the side of the rear cowling side.

    or custom a wheel mudguard like the GS1200, locked to the wheel axle.

    awesome sound! backfire comes as standard!

    sounds very much like a inline 4 but much much bassier rather than screaming pitch kind.

    I've been a lurker in this particular forum, and have been researching and reading abt the MT09 for quite some time.

    There comes a point in time when you had enough of sportsbikes or touring super-long dist, and just hope for a bike that somewhat does it all, pretty well. Was thinking of the Street Triple when this Jap triple suddenly appear, and have been considering long and hard about it. Im on the fence due to the 2 significant issues that all the bike reviews have mentioned: The abrupt throttle resp and the willowy shocks and forks. Conventional wisdom says to wait for a some time till they come up with an improved solution / model. But the butt is itchy to get on with it by purchasing the Penske shock from Stoltec Moto.

    Anyway just a rant boys. Keep the reviews coming and i might just get off the fence and join the triple wagon.

    A lot of people have mentionwd the same concern. It can be mitigated with money. But you won't get the same engine on speed triple.
    And the engine is awesome

    I will be collecting mine maybe tomorrow or Monday. Understand 4 units in Race Blu colour just in, 2 units at HL Cycle, 1 at my bike shop and another no idea which bike shop got it. Bike shop gave me the option of taking the Race Blu or wait till Feb for the Deep Armour(purple) which I want and the likelihood of a price increase by Hong Leong. After a long thought I took the Race Blu color, there is also 3 people whom had booked queuing behind me.

    Likewise, I've been keeping an eye on things. Seems like the suspension is a problem, mainly for the European/American market segment cuz Yammie used a 160lbs (72kg thereabouts) rider. Looks like the stock spring rates may be too low for em. The Penske double clicker from Stoltec ain't that bad, costwise.

    As for the abrupt throttle response, I guess, Bazzaz/PC/Fuel controllers will sort them out. Or if you don't mind not riding for a long time, can send the ECU to reflash in the states.

    I believe the snatchiness is a result of tighter emissions control, so the manufacturers program the injectors to shut off when throttle is closed and only reopen when throttle is back on (at least for Suzuki). Been looking on R6/R1 forums overseas. Apparently there's a way to enter diagnostic mode from the speedo and set the fuel lean/rich for diff throttle positions. Maybe there's a way to work out the snatchiness off a closed throttle.

    Keep tuned to them overseas forums.

    Am looking to be an MT-09 rider come Feb

    Thanks guys.

    Anyway Muge~, you're right about the engine. The shocks can be sort out via the aftermarket route, but engine....... And yes I reckon the MT-09's torque will have a stronger effect on our necks than the Street Triple. No replacement for displacement they say. I say amen to that.

    But a likelihood of a price increase by Hong Leong?!? Daymm.

    @muge & Fariel can you guys please confirm.

    The tool kit only come with a 12mm/14mm spanner, extender and shock preload adjuster and nothing else? How stingy can Yamaha get?

    Anyway bikeshop swop the Penske shock on my MT-09 but still cannot collect, haven't register yet. Can collect only next Monday.
