  1. Nah, it's not my first BMW, so I'm well aware of the good and bad. It's a 2012 Vermillian Red with all the options. 37K miles for $8500 with 3 yrs left on the extended warranty. That last part sold me. Immaculate condition. Quite happy.
  2. Interesting! It's different between MY2015 FJ-09 and the 2019 Tracer 900 GT. I stand corrected!
  3. All 3 performed quite well and never stepped out in the rain.
  4. I've run the Roadtec 01, Road 5, and RS3. The RS3 lasted longest and wore most evenly.
  5. Simply aim your Hi-Beam down to about the same level and run them both all the time. I did that years ago and love it.
  6. Hmmm...that's identical to the Givi D2122S.
  7. I've had one installed on my 39L top case for a few years now. No issues. My girlfriend enjoys the back support.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. I've got a Coats 220 in the garage and balancer. Love it.
  11. 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.
  12. 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!
  13. 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.
