Graves Motorsports Block Off Plates Yamaha FZ-09 / FJ-09 Graves Motorsports smog block-off plates are designed to seal off the ports used by the air injection system. (That's your smog pump.) They are CNC-machined from billet aluminum and feature the Graves Motorsports G logo. The air induction system (AIS) burns unburned exhaust gases by injecting fresh air (secondary air) into the exhaust port, reducing the emission of hydrocarbons. Once these are capped off the air injection system can be safely removed. There are many benefits to removing the air injection system It reduces weight and clutter around the engine compartment. It allows for more accurate Air/Fuel ratio when dyno tuning a bike, and it eliminates exhaust popping on deceleration. Note Please check local laws before purchasing. Some modifications may be prohibited in some states.

Since the FZ 09 is a naked bike it reduced the time in half to install the Graves block off plates. The instructions are useful but I still recommend watching some tutorial videos to be safe. All you need is some basic handtools. Overall I would rate the difficulty level of install to a 3 1/2 out of 5. I installed a Yoshimura R77 full exahust on the FZ. The block off plates did reduce the popping but not completely. After a high rev over 8k I still hear some popping on deceleration. I'm thinking of installing a powercommander V.

The boot offers ample protection which inspires rider confidence. You get what you paid for with the Overlord riding boot. I went out for a two hour commute and the functionality of the boot was as expected, good. I do not recommend walking around in them. On a stiffness scale 1 - 10 I would give at an 8.

RG Racing Radiator Guard Yamaha FZ-09 / FJ-09 Why would you want a radiator guard Did you know something as tiny as a valve stem cap can puncture a radiator Whether you are commuting to work or are wide open throttle down the front straight, blowing a hole in a high pressure cooling system will ruin your day. RG Radiator Guards are made from pressed aluminum and feature a neat and seamless pattern. They provide a solid net to catch any small object or debris from making contact with the radiator. Features Each radiator guard is bike specific Corrosion resistant finish Mounts to OEM points with no modifications necessary

I bought this jacket for my summer commute to work. The jacket features a lot of air pockets and I get plenty of airflow. The jacket was bit heavier than I expected but overall a good purchase. The inner liner can be worn separately as a casual hoodie, but its a bit warm in California right now so I will hold off on that for the winter season.
Yes, I recommend this product.

 Icon Sub Stealth Gloves
Icon Sub Stealth Gloves
The new Sub glove chassis enjoys several benefits previously found only on gloves at a much higher price. Built around a proven Battlehide goatskin palm and finger gussets foundation, the Sub is more than ready for asphalt chaos. A lightweight textile backhand with a high-mobility thumb, not only creates a prime canvas for Icon's finest art, but provides excellent dexterity and abrasion resistance. Completing the protection package is the plastic knuckle armor group fortified to help disperse the shock of the incoming tarmac barrage. The Sub glove - designed to do your dirty work so your skin doesn't have too. Abrasion resistant premium grade Battlehide goatskin palm Injected plastic knuckle armor Short cuff design with secure wrist closure Pre-curved palm and finger design Imported
