  1. Yes, we are going in June, monitor, Ebbetts and Carson Passes. πŸ‘πŸ»
  2. How is the Niken’s motor different than the Other CP3 motors?
  3. Hi Betoney, where did you purchase the lower cowling? Do you have a part number you can share?

      I am at work and don’t have search access while out in the field but it is made by Ermax. Google search should help you out. πŸ‘πŸ»


  4. I did the same thing, long on-ramp and I just accelerated and focused on merging left. The motor never stopped accelerating smooth and care-free as I settled into the flow of interstate traffic at 85mph, then and looked down and realized "oh, I'm still in 3rd gear". πŸ‘
  5. And it can do that in 3rd gear. πŸ‘πŸ»
  6. I agree, the oem hand guards are worthless at blocking air, they are way too far away from the grips. The previous versions on the FJ09 were even worse because they were just as ineffective AND goofy looking. I use VStrom hand guards on mine and they block the wind very effectively.
  7. Same here. When I have had the bike in to the dealer for valve checks the mechanic asked me why I still have the AIS installed, saying its much easier access with out all of that plumbing in the way. But its riding season finally, I'll worry about that this coming Winter.

  9. Honestly that sounds overly cautious to me as well, like @i_ride45 mentioned I have been pulled over many, many times and just get off the bike and hand them my paperwork. I have never had a LEO approach paranoid or tell me to keep my hands on the bars, infact they have always been very friendly and end up talking bikes after a few minutes. At least in my experience, 3 out of 4 times they are willing to lecture you with concern for your safety and give a warning. YMMV.
  10. Did they say that just recently or at the beginning of the year when every one else thought they were getting some? I was just reading the same thing on the FZ/MT09 forum, buyers putting deposits down on the new model and being told availability will be in March and then May and then July and then maybe or maybe not? πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ I hope this shortage or shipping delay is only temporary.
  11. Just got pulled over a week ago... "I pulled you over because you rocketed out of that traffic circle at 50mph". I have my wallet and paperwork in my tank bag, I handed him my license and insurance and was all yes officer, no officer. A few minutes later he let me go with a warning.
  12. When you buy this specific kit, it comes with everything you need for the conversion. There was a thread on here a few years ago on the process and steps to swap the parts. As a note - you do have to swap some of the original clutch plates for this specific conversion.
  13. The 2019 and 2020 are the same bike, the updates from the 2015 FJ09 are heated grips, cruise control, longer swingarm, slipper clutch, separate adjustable fork legs and factory luggage plus what you listed above.
  14. Yes, the clutch will fit. You can buy a Assist/slipper upgrade. XSR900 Slipper Clutch for FZ-09 : Part Shark
