    MT-07 chainguard 1WS-F2311-00-00

    I have put a very nice used chainguard on Ebay. It is a genuine Yamaha accessory, part no 1WS-F2311-00-00. As you know, Yam charge £94 for this item. I am looking for around £30, which also includes UK postage.

    Selling high spec MT-07

    I have decided to change. I now need something with a lighter clutch and slightly more comfort. So my stunning MT-07 is for sale. My icon shows the bike and there have been lots of posts by the previous owner (GAZ2212) including lots of photos. The bike is fundamentally the same, with a few...

    Seton Tuning

    My MT-07 has Akro exhaust with shortened baffle plus DNA air filter and top plate (Yamaha snorkel filter top discarded). Like many other forum members, I have followed the reasoning and progress of ECU re-mapping, in the search for smoother on/off throttle response, less severe over-run engine...

    I have just checked the wheel alignment on my bike and discovered that it was slightly wrong. I hasten to point out that, since buying it from Gaz2212, this is the first and only thing thing that I have found to be (slightly) wrong.

    Chain guard rivets ?

    Looking at the Yamaha Parts catalogue, the chain guard seems to be retained by two screws and two rivets. Are these rivets re-useable or do they need drilling out and replacing?

    Tyre Sizes

    I agreed with the sentiments expressed by "Gregjet" on 03/04/2015. I have always felt that Yamaha have opted for style over function with the big fat tyres fitted to the MT-07. I think the bike would feel much more nimble if narrowed tyres were fitted. Even on the original rims, it might be...

    Masters of Torque

    Does anyone know if the MT-07 is a desaxe design, like the MT-09? Most car and bike engines use desaxe to some degree, to improve torque and reduce internal stresses and friction. I have not found any Yamaha reference to it being used in the MT-07, although studying the workshop manual...

    New Member in Sussex

    Hi Group. Three weeks ago I bought an MT-07 from another forum member, GAZ2212. It has been extensively and thoughtfully modified, regardless of cost and I am now benefitting from the experience and competence of Gary, the previous owner. You are probably aware of this bike, since Gary has...
