  1. Time for forced induction with smaller sized engines... we already got a turbo kits for the CP2, CP3 and CP4 motors...even starting to have the kits run on e85, can you imagine the lil ole CP2 putting down 145whp/100tq on e85 ðŸĪŠ( granted it needs bigger 650cc injectors, aftermarket springs/rods/valves, HD clutch springs, ARP stud kit and ceramic coated pistons)...
  2. We never got the 2018 bikes in the USA... we got the 2015-17 FJ-09 then the 2019+ Tracer/GT... It didn't help Yamaha had 2 different names for the same bike till 2019 which adds to the confusion... 2015-17 - 1st gen 2018+ 2nd gen
  3. Even looking at the parts list, the seats are totally different( granted the pictures are kinda generic)... gotta be a different pan for the FJ and Tracer/GT bikes...the Tracer/GT looks to have different material/colors/stitching between the 2...
  4. Looking at the parts list: I see 3 different part numbers for the passenger seat... FJ-09- 2PP-247OH-00-00 TRACER- B5C-24750-00-P0 GT- B5C-247OH-10-00
  5. No decal- a few members have used colored pin stripe style tape, IIRC @wordsmithhas done this a few times...
  6. Various legal reasons... its easier to have speedos read slightly higher than actual speed...
  7. My solution to the colors is to have all the body plastics "clear enough to see thru" as well as a "clear see thru" gas tank... that way the future owners can get the bike painted to the color they want...
  8. Just email the pictures you wanna post to yourself- they will automatically get reduced in size...
  9. Cheap worthy upgrade would be a Stoltec fork kit- either in a DIY kit or pre-assembled swap of the cartridge cores... That would a night/day improvement...
  10. Go for it if you can do it... I really didn't think we had forum members in Netherlands/Holland...
  11. I find its mainly driven by what my friends have for a motorcycle that drive a person's choice in a motorcycle...
  12. Darn it!! I was hoping it would be a little challenging to complete...
  13. I have a Ranger... I put the bike in the bed diagonally...
  14. Next photo challenge: picture of bike near a sign showing elevation "below sea lvl"
  15. New tires- RoadPilot5s Front rotor upgrade- 320mm New rear shock- Penske Double clicker from Stoltec Front suspension- Revalve kit from Stoltec XRS 900 clutch upgrade ** floorjack is now replaced with block of wood**
  16. 2015 only has on or off, no other TC settings as the later models do If the TC light is on 24/7 it means its OFF...no TC light means its ON and if it flashes when riding it means it got triggered...
  17. Im starting to believe once the temp goes past "lo" temp the thermostat stays open till the temps drop below "lo" reading again...
  18. Or a Higdonion engine cage/skid plate... my buddy tells me it makes a nice "ting" when a rock/pebble is denied the chance to say hello to the engine/oil pan..
  19. At first I was gonna do the mating surfaces but found the powder coat was way thicker/puddled in other areas mainly on the inside mating surface that caliper drops into... now I'm just gonna clear coat em... didn't wanna gouge out the holes scrapping it off as to keep the tolerances snug... not complaining... would have been a better choice(hindsight) to have em anodized vs powercoat...
  20. Found a super easy way to remove the powder coat off the spacers- I soaked em in a plastic cup with some TOLUENE for an hr then used a lil wire brush to literally peel off the powder coat with the slight pressure on the brush...
  21. Me too, the looks so far...gotta wait till spring to test em ðŸ˜Ĩ... the tough choice was which color to pick 😅
  22. Above photo: new EBC 320mm rotor Photo below: 320mm vs OEM(laying on top of 320mm rotor) Thickness difference: OEM on top of 320mm rotor...
  23. I have seen reports of 95BHP which is approx 75WHP...pretty close to the FZ/MT-07 which is approx 70WHP...
  24. Imitation is the greatest form of flattery, but it's annoying for many reasons....
