  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. New tires! Roadsmart 3s as the Road 5s were a miserable experience with cupping and ramping after 2,000 miles. Oh well, I've got a tire machine, so "Quit your bitchin!". I truly view tires as consumables and don't think badly of Michelin. I think I'll try more rebound, yet I didn't have this problem with Roadtec 01, T30 Evos or RS2 that were previously fitted. I was running 36F/42R as my girlfriend is usually rides pillion. 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.
  5. First valve adjustment this past week! Not too bad as it's very well documented on the interwebs. 😉 The usual findings. Exhaust valves were tight, while intakes were within spec. I replaced all 6 exhaust shims and 3 of the intakes to get them closer to midrange. Finished up with a throttle body sync and good to go!
  6. No, you got it right. Mine is identical. Set - sets cruise speed and accel. Res - Resumes and decels. That's just the way the Brandon CC works anyway. Same controller, I understand, as the McCruise.
  7. Yes, those are FJR bags. Direct fit with the existing FJ brackets. No mods necessary.
  8. Aerostich Darien Jacket and Pants. Goretex gloves and boots! I'd rather ride in beautiful weather of course, but if it rains, I enjoy it! Not need to stop, just keep on going. I absolutely love riding in a downpour, totally dry and protected. My own little cocoon.
  9. I've had the Slime brand unit for a couple of years now. Works great! $27.00 Amazon Slime Mini-Compressor
  10. Love my CD shock! Be prepared to spent 30 min with them on the phone if you're ready to order. They want a lot of detail regarding your weight, bags, riding style, etc. These guys get it right and stand by their products. Been around for years in the mountains of NC.
  11. Absolutely and great choice! The FJR bags and top box look great on the FJ-09. One key for the ignition, side cases and top box!
  12. I accidentally mounted one backwards on my hat while walking home one day.
  13. Look at a Peer-to-Peer bike rental group like Rider's Share - https://www.riders-share.com/listings/miami-fl ...or Twisted Road - Twisted Road
