Revzilla Article on FZ-09 Tuning

Revzilla article highlighting the great works done by Stoltec and 2 Wheel DynoWorks

Quote:
The Yamaha FZ-09 is one of the most important bikes to be released in recent years. Nothing else competes with its combination of power, torque, and low price tag.
I spent a few months with one for a long-term review and fell in love with it, when the terrible suspension and jerky fueling weren't trying to kill me. Then, I met Nick Stolten of Stoltec Moto, who came up with his own suspension and fueling fixes to make the FZ-09 the way it should have been released from the factory. We've already detailed his suspension fixes, so now it's time to get the fueling sorted.
Since the release of the FZ-09, Yamaha has released a new set of fuel maps that you can have installed on your bike. They are very similar to that of the new FJ-09, which is to say they are very much improved. But if you really want to unlock the potential of the FZ-09, we recommend you read the following Q&A with Stolten.

Shut up and ride.

Are 2015's have fixed the terrible suspension and jerky fueling?

I don't have any issues with my 2015, I just adjusted the throttle when replaced my handle bars grips.

2015's got the updated fuel map. I don't think they did anything to the suspension over the 2014 model. I found the Sport Rider recommended settings for the FZ-09 to work well for me.

Yamaha FZ-09: Improving the fueling - Common Tread - RevZilla

weird about link. just copy/pasted. this should work. forum wont let me edit the original post for some reason.

ride a non flashed bike, then ride a flashed bike, you'll see the difference and understand even with "updated fueling", it's not proper. there's more than just fueling in a flash, and rideability is immeasurably improved

Shut up and ride.

I rode a new 15 and a used 14 on the same day at two different dealers. The 14 was definitely "pre-flash-update" and you could tell in 15 seconds. Throttle was a bit jerky from off to on, but the big difference was the engine breaking. I'm sure you could get used to it, but it was a big difference.
