  1. I modified this exhaust in the method described in this thread: All the welding was tig. Louder and more flow than stock, and low miles. The pictures show the internal mods. $100 plus shipping or you could pick it up.
  2. Really glad to see these high mileages, helps put any anxieties to rest.
  3. I think this is a really good looking screen, how is the noise level, is it any quieter than OEM?
  4. I'm going to try it as well, I need to find something that works.
  5. I installed the same eBay chain adjusters shown here and I don't think there is enough engagement of the nut with is design either. In order to get at least one thread showing I had to remove the washer. Is not having the washer under the nut going to cause any problems? I know there will be wear on the adjuster when removing/installing the nut, but I am not too worried about that.
  6. The new shield came in the mail today, there are no holes and it feels like good quality. It may be a while before I get to the modification and mounting, but I will at least take some pictures. The process was a little complicated, make the order (with a note requesting the +15cm and no holes) without paying, then make payment after the price was adjusted for the +15cm.
  7. I asked if I could get it without holes and the seller said "OK". There was a little back and forth, so I'm not sure if it will show up with holes or not, but I ordered the +15cm version. I plan to cut it similar to redfjniner's, I think it is still the best looking large screen either made or bought.
  8. The seller says "choose this order and tell me that I need +15cm, I will change the price for you. The price is $ 78." I'll report back if I decide to go for it.
  9. Just found this FJR screen on Aliexpress and considering a similar modification, I have a question in with the seller to find out the price of the +15cm option. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Black-transparent-brown-for-Yamaha-FJR1300-FJR-1300-2001-2005-0-3CM-thickness-windshield-can-choose/32807685586.html?spm=2114.13010308.0.0.sGHlOw
  10. I was fortunate, it was very low speed and their were no injuries, I hope yours heal quickly and thoroughly​.
  11. A few years ago I was rear ended while stopped at a light on my V-Strom, I did some research on diminished value claims and came up with 20% of the bikes value as a reasonable number. I'm not sure how successful it would have been, I didn't end up pursuing it due to how high the repair cost was for cosmetic damage and not wanting to total the bike.
  12. I haven't found anything quite that low, but so far Skagit Powersports has quoted the best price.
