2014 Yamaha FZ-09 Hyperpro Suspension

EPM Performance Imports, the exclusive U.S. importer of Hyperpro motorcycle suspension products, has just released high-quality shock and fork upgrades developed specifically for Yamaha’s new FZ-09 that give the naked street brawler a well-controlled, compliant and comfortable ride that its low-tech, stock suspenders don’t deliver.

Easy to install and adjust, Hyperpro’s model 461 shock has a 45-click range of settings for rebound damping, the capability to fine-tune high- and low-speed compression damping, and a threaded preload collar.

It’s equipped with a high-performance remote reservoir and can be ordered with an optional length adjuster that will raise or lower the bike by a half inch.

The more economical 466 is a DeCarbon-style shock with adjustable preload and rebound that has separate chambers for gas and oil to prevent cavitation in the FZ-09’s near-horizontal mounting position.

The 461 and 466 shocks can be fitted with convenient, hydraulically operated preload adjusters.

Hyperpro’s rising-rate fork springs and progressively wound replacement shock springs are also available.

All Hyperpro shocks’ first maintenance service is free. They’re backed with a five-year warranty, come with an informative suspension manual and bike-specific setup data. Live phone support from EPM’s Hyperpro technicians is available for installation and setup help.

More information about Hyperpro shocks, springs, steering dampers and other suspension products can be found at, by e-mailing or calling 732-786-9777 for sales, service and technical support.
