The basic service interval is 6000 miles, which covers an oil (but not filter) change plus throttle-body balancing and a fairly extensive list of minor lubrication tasks which are widely neglected, as is the spark-plug check. In the 2017 model year, Yamaha saw 24,358 MT-07s roll into new garages across the globe, with 3891 of those in the U.S. There seem to be plenty of MTs in breakers, but predictably they’re mostly there for crash damage, so front-end bits in particular are pricey - a good pair of forks are anything from £400 to £550. While the pull is not heavy, a stock adjustable lever would seem obvious on a bike targeted to newer riders (and women). The seat now wraps down around the tank where one’s thighs grip the tank, providing just that much more of a grippable connection to the MT-07. You might get perhaps 1bhp more at the top end, or a tiny bit better pickup, but I’ve had mine on the dyno and the fuelling is nice and smooth with an Akrapovic system.". I'm giving it 5 out of 5 despite it not being the perfect bike I believe Yamaha hit the target perfectly within the price range.
