What to do

Post by Barton » Fri Sep 28, 2018 7:05 pm

My empty'o' 9 was crap out of the box. Now got Woolwich map with quick shift and blipper.
K-tech shock and fork kit.
R1 throttle tube.
Now I bloody love it.
What you done to yours.

I know its an old thread but I have just got an MT-09 Street Rally, haven't done anything to it myself but here is a list of whats done:

only issue I have found so far is the seat is not the most comfortable thing in the world but other than that what a fantastic bike

The street rally is a good looking bike but couldn't justify the extra cost of the plastic number board/hand guard. The street rally also got the tall flat seat..I got one of those and the stocker. I find in my one piece leathers either is OK but if I wear my kevlar jeans the pockets really press into my arse after an hour.

As I said in the other thread , get it re-mapped and the forks sorted 👍

Mines had the plastic bits removed:

The seat is my only gripe with it atm, what is your opinion on the comfort seat is it worth the price to upgrade it?


@Jompy: It's been remapped already which is great but I have no intention of going to the track or doing any excessive racing round the roads and I like the way it handles so doubt I will change the forks

Don't buy a comfort seat. Get an upholster to trim an inch or so from the oem foam and lay an inch of softer stuff. Forks and shock are a must in my opinion.
Stock you roll off throttle tip in and forks dive tightening your line. You tap the throttle and rear squats forks extend and throw you wide. I have had mine on track for two or three session's at Donington

What to do

Post by Redjj » Tue Jul 16, 2019 2:28 pm

Got my MT09 seat reworked at Core Motorcycle seating near Lincoln. Much better than the plank it started off like.

Had the bike to Stef @ tyres4bikes in Spalding at the weekend and he set up the front & rear for me, which has really transformed the handling for how I ride. Well worth an hour and just £50

Evotec rad guard fitted and removed pillion pegs and fitted evotec blanking plates.
