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.
