LED headlights are more than a gimmick. Even if you solely consider the superior lumens-per-watt numbers of modern LED's, you will see that it is a win-win. Your headlight draws only 35W total. If it is better than a regular 60/55W halogen, you reduce load on the engine in addition to getting more light. AFAIK Yamaha has installed a lower power alternator because of the reduced load of the headlight on the electricals.

Also, do you know how much the headlight costs in spare parts? Sorry for the multiple requests.
Some one has made a video of the beam throw -


IMHO this is bit misleading since it's tested in super dark area, but you will get an idea on throw.

Mine is very badly aligned as of now and it does flicker too on uneven roads, very irritating, need to get it fixed ASAP.

Not sure about the cost, when I visit I will check and let you know.

Took delivery of my FZ25 in Black yesterday. Have named her 'Karuthamma'

Getting back to biking after a decade, so I am just too excited to be back on 2 wheels.

The initial observations are good so far.

1. The torque delivery is quite nice and flat, a boon in urban traffic.
2. The bike feels quite lite & nimble making it instantly comfortable in navigating through tight lanes. Less than 24 hours with the bike and this is something very good.
3. The exhaust note is quite nice, havent revved it beyond 5K RPM except for the occasional bursts of sprinting.
4. The registration is not done yet, so I cant mod anything for now. But the tire hugger/saree guard and the MRFs are going away as soon as the registration is done.

The headlight alignment for the high beam is quite bad and there is mild vibration of the headlight unit while riding over broken road. This is something I will let the dealer fix when I drop it for the registration.

Since out of touch for long from bikes, I am having a bit of struggle in getting the gears right through slow speeds. I am usually +/- gear than ideal, something I am sure I can get it right soon with regular riding.

For sure, Pirelli\Michelin will be sticky but with that fantastic chassis, I (as of now) feel content with them, but they need to be warmed up first.
And Congratulations ��

Congrtas anachronix Mean looking machine in black.

Exactly the issue I'm facing with headlight, glad I'm not alone
In fact I complained about this the first day, all they did was unscrew and screw back some joints, it's improved but it still flickers, very annoying at night, please keep me updated on this issue, so will I.

A special thanks to you Sheel! I booked the bike, just a day after reading your review here

I am looking at the Michelin Pilot Street, the Pirellis are too soft is what I heard. Not sure thought!

Thank you for sharing that link. I have just found out that even user The Sportztourer (I think the spelling might be a little off) has made a comparison video of the headlights of the FZ25 and RTR200. The latter scores better in terms of optics.

I am curious to know what changes in the alignment you will do. The flicker problem sounds bad. What are the chances that they have kept the mounts flexible on purpose, perhaps to protect the headlight from vibrations?

You could consider the Pirelli Sport Demon. It's a medium compound tyre with great grip and should be cheaper than the Pilot Street which is an excellent tyre.

Sure, photos and the report will be updated soon. Please allow me some time!

Thanks! skyliner34 and congratulations to you as well! Hoping to see more from your side too.

A lot of fellow owners are complaining (are not happy) about the headlamp. To be honest and keeping the biasing away, the throw is not as disappointing as it sounds from the comments so far. Yes, the spread is what one can blabber about but only when it is on the high beam. Low beam is as good as the contemporary halogen lamps or even better than them (?)

But how to improve the high beam throw and spread?
- Adjust this screw below the front left turn indicator it will cause the reflector to go up and bring some smile to the face!
The result won't be as significant as it may sound but is manageable unless one is traveling extensively on the dead dark highways. Which allows me to say, headlamp on the FZ-250 can not be a dealbreaker by any chance!

Cheers!

Here is a small video I made regarding bike's HU performance in real world.
Also note the HU vibrations on patchy surfaces. Not sure if this issue is random or design fault.



Post beam adjustments the spread and throw is much much better for low beam

I experience similar vibrations in my FZ, I doubt if this is random. But an issue that Yamaha needs to fix.

Now I'm starting to wonder if it's a design flaw from Yamaha forgetting Indian road conditions

Hi folks, I just found this video and it's looks quite disturbing. I was looking for a new bike and picked FZ25 against Mojo.

Can the current owners of FZ25, check this out?



Let us know if you were able to replicate this?

Wow, so the FZ16 owners get a free upgrade with their existing keys

Technically this should not be possible, as every key unit is supposed to be unique. If this is actually a goof-up then Yamaha is in deep trouble.
