Looking at the production date and VIN I just realized I have one of the first 100 FZ-10's made. Luckily here in CA we get "first dibs" on new Japanese bikes entering North America. Mine is May 2016 (2017 MY), last 6 of VIN 000052
Well, mine is one of the first 1,598 made. Ha ha. Less issues to worry about, although I have to say, I'm mighty impressed with the lack of issues of any kind on these bikes. I only knew about an ECU reflash to cure a fault with the sidestand switch if engine was started too quickly, or something like that. It wasn't even the sidestand switch, like I thought. Really proud of Yamaha. Nowadays, vehicle manufacturers use customers as beta-testers, especially with motorcycles, which are not considered main transportation here. Mine is noisier than I'd like when hot, specifically the chain/tensioner. It's not the typical valvetrain noise. But won't be disappointed until I change the oil, and see what happens. The good news is it doesn't sound worrisome; just annoying on a new machine. But what an awesome machine for 10 grand (that's what I paid with 0 miles. Plus TTL) .

exuptoy: Hi guys, newbie here from the uk. Just felt I had to register as I have today fitted the Leo to my 2018 10. Awesome sound on it but still a little loud with my Scorpion RP1-GP. Hope you guys like it.
