  1. I use lemon pledge, its cheap and can be purchased everywhere. Spray it on and let it soak in for a minute or two. Try to clean the bug guts off after each ride instead of letting them dry on over night.
  2. All exhaust valves were tight on my 2015 @ 42000kms. Intake valves were all in spec. #1 Intake: L 0.007" R 0.007" Exhaust: L 0.007" R 0.009" #2 Intake: L 0.006" R 0.006" Exhaust: L 0.005" R 0.007" #3 Intake: L 0.006" R 0.005" Exhaust: L 0.005" R 0.005"
  3. I checked my valve clearance today at 41900 kms (26K miles). Every exhaust valve is too tight. Should be between 0.0102" - 0.0118". All intake valves were in spec. #1 Intake: L 0.007" R 0.007" Exhaust: L 0.007" R 0.009" #2 Intake: L 0.006" R 0.006" Exhaust: L 0.005" R 0.007" #3 Intake: L 0.006" R 0.005" Exhaust: L 0.005" R 0.005" Also i was surprised to find Yamaha wasnt using iridium spark plugs from factory... even my bargain bin 650r Ninja came with iridium plugs stock. Now i need to take the camshafts off and reshim. Not sure where to buy shims at?? The dealer?

  5. So what did do with your TKC80s after you swapped them out? Shipped them home?
  6. Congrats! Great to see another FJ-09 make it to Tuk!😎
  7. Yeah the high beam is on in that photo, the engine was running.
  8. Thank you. This light bar is wired to the one of the spare leads under the dash so its key on power and always running.
  9. I added a CosmoMoto Accessories light bar, Custom Dynamics licence plate bolt LEDs that activate with the brakes, and rolled the odo to 40000kms
  10. Its a Japanese bike designed on Japanese roads (smooth and winding) for the average Japanese rider (5'8" and 150 lbs full kit). Dont get all butthurt when you find the bike doesnt suit your 6'1" 220 lbs build and highspeed open interstate riding. No bike is set up perfect out of the crate. I put on a windscreen that suits my height and riding requirements, mirror extenders to see past my elbows, and suspension to handle my luggage and extra farkle weight.
  11. I tend to agree with this.
  12. You say "Canadian Edition" like its the "2008 Yamaha R1 Canadian Edition".
  13. Anyone else seeing photos of the "MT-10 Tracer" popping up across the web? It looks.... beefy.
  14. MT-09 – Moto Animals MOTOANIMALS.COM Im waiting patiently for Moto Animals to make a Tracer design... 🤞
  15. Right, i can get a new one for less with free shipping. Thanks anyways.
