  1. I've had one installed on my 39L top case for a few years now. No issues. My girlfriend enjoys the back support.
  2. No, that "whistle" seems to be a characteristic of 3 cylinder platforms. Love it! Remember the K75 "Whistling Brick"? I can get the bike up to speed, pull in the clutch (engine at idle) and hear a distinct "whirl" sound with a frequency that matches the speed of the bike. It's not tire noise, but absolutely attributed to the new front sprocket. It's gotten less pronounced after almost 1K miles, but it's still there. Honestly, I love the smoothness of this setup and with the sound diminishing over time, I might just leave it as is, even with a damped sprocket in the mail tomorrow. You can hear it during the last 8 seconds of the video, when I pull in the clutch. I'm only going about 20MPH, so it's not very loud.
  3. I just replaced the chain and sprockets on my 2015 FJ-09. Sprocket Center had no damped front sprocket in stock, so I went with a JT 16/45 steel combination with DID 525-VX chain. Although super smooth, the undamped front sprocket has a siren sound that has NOT gone away after 700 miles, so I'll be replacing that with an OEM damped sprocket later this week.
  4. I've got a Coats 220 in the garage and balancer. Love it.
  5. Look at the :23 mark of the video and then :48 mark. Watch the hub compared to the swingarm....it's out of round! Something is AMISS and it probably has to do with the setup and assembly.
  6. Oh my! I installed a Cogent rear shock too, but didn't have to remove the swingarm. But hey, it's done! ...and you have an awesome shock!
  7. Can you get better pictures? Looking closely at those, it appears that both of the hard bags are scuffed and the right engine guard. The CCT is nothing. Just replace with an APE unit. Clutch cable, cheap. Price is SPANKING good, but it may have lived a hard life being dropped on both sides.
  8. Well, they are 9 hours ahead of you, so it was Monday morning for them. 😁
  9. Here is the original discussion.
  10. The Tiregard TPMS is a good system. I've mounted the sensors inside the tire rim using Doran Manufacturing valve stems with the lock ring.
  11. It doesn't need to be perfect. As long as the cam lobes are facing away from each other. Also, I ordered my Pro-X replacement shims from https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com and received them in 1 day. Great price and service. You'll need shims that are 7.48mm OD.
  12. I went with a SparkBright unit...very happy with it.
  13. Here's what I did, bought these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01H3CQ64Q/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and this: https://www.amazon.com/Radians-CEP001-Custom-Molded-Earplugs/dp/B003A28P0M?th=1 Then used the combination of the two to make a nice set of custom molded earbuds that work perfectly with my bluetooth communicators. Effective, comfortable noise attenuation that stays in the ear and allows you listen clearly to the music or communications at a lower volume.
  14. Simply give them a call at 866-816-7233 and order the stems. Yes, any style with work with these valve stems. #3636 PAIR STRAIGHT VALVE STEMS 1 0 1 $9.9900 $9.99 FOR #360M
  15. The beauty of using the external sensors internally with the Doran valve stems, is that you don't have to worry about them leaking air. You can also add air like normal. Also, most internal sensors don't have replaceable batteries. With these you can simply replace the battery with every tire change if needed. The monitor tells you if either of the batteries are getting low. The Tiregard can be had for <$100 and it performs flawlessly with the monitor mounted between the bars.
