  1. I highly approved of this exhaust choice... Them welds are pornographic tho... Headers/midpipe barely weight more than skimpy lingerie...
  2. That's it... The early years prior to the rear remote preload adjustment, we got a special 2pc tool to adjust rear preload manually... That's what I know...
  3. This problem seems to only happen when that person takes his/hers hands off the handlebars when slowing down in gear(what gear/RPM?) but does this happen in N ?
  4. New battery...stock lasted almost 4yrs here in Michigan... Never put on battery tender... Finally died (wouldn't hold a charge or provide enough oomph to turn over)... Had to jump start the bike last night to get home...tried to bump start but the parking lot surface was not working in my favor...
  5. Yes Graves Exhaust using Woolich is route I went... It's been almost 4yrs since 2WDW created my tune as it was the 1st time they had a request for using Woolich vs FTECU... Nothing wrong with FTECU but at the time the Woolich race kit was hard to beat in value... No separate tune needed for running with/wo baffle... I also have AIS block off plates... Bikes will have lower running temps in general when the big ole heater box(cat convert) is removed...
  6. Quite a few places like that round here...one RV campground owner banned motorcycles on his property after his son took his own life riding one after they got into an argument... One campground banned all "power sports" such as quads, boats, jet skis, motorcycles because a group of renter's tore up the gravel road doing "stunts" and showing off one day during the off season somehow... Mainly I am getting the idea "motorcycles" do not project the image the condo owner wants for the property ๐Ÿคจ
  7. It's pretty much stocked in stores in my experience vs 525 ... Yes it's lighter, etc..
  8. You can even switch to a 520 chain size if you also switch sprockets... That's my plan... 525 is an odd size and 520 is pretty much universal from R1 to dirt bikes...
  9. Thinking about this: I would not recommend going out and hitting lean angles to go past lvl 3 fun just because it was shown on the forum... For me, I'm comfortable with the rear tire slipping/sliding, etc as others may not even like a "lively" rear tire behavior...
  10. There is enough clearance to run near the edge of tire ... That's past lvl 3 fun ๐Ÿ™ƒ
  11. Remove the windscreen... Otherwise you will go crazy
  12. I think it's more of how everything is "synch up" the moment it gets shut down via the red button... To me if I shut the running motor off via key and go back to turn the key on, the fuel pump kicks it in like its running an idling motor due to red button in ON position- so when I go to start it back up it seems like it's just turning over a few extra times to "synch up"... I don't think one is better than the other but we are cursed by habits... Other reason can explain longer than normal starts such as kinked breather hose(should hear the unique airbox whine if hose is not kinked)... Also CA bikes have an EVAP cannister which can do a random weird thing when gas tank is super full sitting under hot sun for hours...
  13. Simple wipe down of the gear sensor solves the problem... Mine was coated like triple dipped candy in grease... I Wiped it off and put a light smear of grease back on sensor face... Sensor is located behind front sprocket cover just above the front sprocket...
  14. This is me: I can feel the bike settle a bit when I roll off the gas, same feeling when I get on the gas- I can feel the bike trying to pick itself up... This is on stock suspension... A Giraffe is slightly faster than a rabbit- I kinda relate the FJ-09 to a giraffe- yea it's "legs" are a bit wobbly but it moves ๐Ÿ™ƒ
  15. Most people assume a gas guage functions nicely like automotive with the nice rectangular linear shaped tanks vs the odd geometric shapes of motorcycles... Start using the trip meter as your gas gauge... I only pay attention to the gas guage when the little menu screen goes into Reserve Mode... The more you ride the bike doing normal stuff you will get a good idea on how far a tank last... Avg seems to be 160-180miles before it starts flashing it's bar... What the display shows for MPG or whatnot is not important when you know 180miles is the time to start looking for gas under normal circumstances...
