    Subj: Madstad 22" clear windshield

    no sale to gomer
  5. Hi Everyone, I have a Madstad Engineering 22" windshield for FJ-09 for sale. I am 6-foot with a 32-inch inseam. This windshield was perfect for me, channeling all the wind over my helmet. It was very quiet inside the bubble. I stayed cool behind this windshield even in the summer Florida heat. I bought this in March 2018 and has been lightly used and never dropped. I paid $285 for the windshield and I’m asking $140 plus shipping. I am in Orlando, Florida, USA. If you are interested contact me here or, email me at lphelps@cfl.rr.com.
  6. Hi Everyone, I have a set of GIVI PLR2122 quick release racks and GIVI E22N cases for sale. I preferred the Rapid Release system which is easily removed for day rides. I bought these in September 2016 and they have been lightly used and never dropped. The top opening cases are a pleasure to use and never leaked. (The blue tape in the photos hold the screws in place on brackets to ease installation.) I paid $450 for the set up and I’m asking $250 plus shipping. I am in Orlando, Florida, USA. If you are interested, email Larry at lphelps@cfl.rr.com.

    Strange Vibrationzzzz

    I took it in for the 600 mi check yesterday and mentioned the vibes. The tech said he has ridden the R6 and other cross-plane bikes and said he has felt the same thing. Then he rode mine and confirmed it was the same vibe as the other models. He said he would send a complaint to Yamaha on-line tech support and let know what they say. I also mentioned that at a constant speed, the bikes surges like its misfiring. I thought maybe a TB sync would help. The tech rode and felt the same thing, especially at lower speeds in any gear. He suggested it might be lean fueling to meet EPA requirements but would submit the compliant to the Yamaha on-line tech support. FYI. Even though the owners manual says a throttle body sync should be done at 600 mi, the dealer's list of required service (as shown on his service dept computer) does NOT include syncing.

    Strange Vibrationzzzz

    The motor is so smooth at 3k rpm. Then I start to feel the vibes around 4K and they peak around 4.5K. Cruising at 60mph is disconcerting for sure. I am taking it in for the 600 mi check next week (and the recall fix) and will ask if the throttle bodies are out of sync. Otherwise, I guess riding in 5th is the answer at 60 mph.

    Windshield adjustement

    Mine is the same. I tried tightening the screws but the play seems to be elsewhere. I thought about taking the windshield off and looking but decided not to mess with it. When riding, I noticed the top edge of the windshield vibrating when it was fully raised. It is a bit distracting. Windshield vibrates less when fully lowered.

    Clutch Judder ?

    I thought it was just me, but I notice a slight judder when starting in first gear on flat ground. I only have about 60 miles on mine and am hoping it goes away with more miles. I don't notice any judder with other gear changes. I traded in my FZ6R which never had this clutch judder.

    Tight Chain

    Took delivery of my FJ-09 today. I measured the chain slack as set by the dealer/factory at 20mm total range (up plus down from static) while on center stand. The chain sounds normal when spinning rear wheel in neutral on the center stand. Shifting seems fine, too.
  12. I picked up my bike today. The tech said the magnetic sensor on the front wheel was placed too far from the slotted segment to detect any movement. He adjusted the spacing to spec and it works fine now. No damage, everything is fine. phew
  13. This dealer has been there for many years. We bought a Kawasaki there for my wife 3 years ago and they were a Yamaha dealer then. I don't know if they give their techs any training on new models but at one point there were 4 techs looking/working on my new FJ. After about 30+ minutes I could tell they had no idea of how to solve the problem, and it was 6 pm (quitting time), so I told them I would leave the bike.
  14. Cold and dark on a new bike. Not a good combination. I just had to deal with rush hour traffic because the dealer kept me 2 hours doing the paperwork.
