I recently purchased a Midnight Black Tracer 900GT. I’ve been browsing around this forum before my purchase and getting some nice tips and tricks for the bike. I live in Sweden. Previously I’ve owned a KTM 990 Super Duke but since I’m about 6’6 I was not too comfortable riding this for longer distances. I was about too buy a pre-owned KTM 990 SMT too be able to do some longer rides when I came across the FJ-09/Tracer 900. I decided to go for the new 2018/2019 model and went for the GT since I wanted side bags and heated grips (very useful in Sweden 😁).
I recently installed the Yamaha license plats holder along with LED indicators to clean up the rear. I had to modify the brackets a bit to be able to fit the side bags and avoid using the included extender which comes with the kit.
Next thing on the list is to update the software in the ECU to match the arrow exhaust and play around with throttle maps, AIS etc. I might do some tweaking to increase air inlet flow aswell.
Future plans to increase comfort include new bar risers, clutch and brake levers, new windshield (even in the highest position, I struggle a bit with winds. Again, being 6’6 brings a bit extra work to get things right when riding bikes) and maybe new seats.
