  1. Also 89 south out of Flag through Sedona, Jerome, Prescott, Yarnell to Wickenburg was one of my favorite AZ ride. Finally my all time favorite motorcycle road is in eastern AZ, 191 from Clifton to Alpine AZ. Hope you have a great trip!
  2. Hey, if your heading to the canyon on 180 don’t miss a quick ride up snowbowl road, Fun little bit of twisties.
  3. They certainly appear to be Blurple in the photos: 2019 Yamaha Tracer 900 GT - Long-Term Ride Review Yamaha's Tracer 900 GT is a great platform on which to build an ideal...
  4. Does my link to my google doc work? It might only work for others with google drives? Anyway, it is PDF describing step by step what I did and why. I couldn’t load a pdf doc to this forum.
  5. My added filter is after the pump and external to the tank. The OEM design also has the main filter after the pump its just part of the white plastic assembly. The only thing before the pump inlet is the pickup screen. The filter is to protect the injectors.
  6. So the FZ-07 Filter is almost certainly a Denso fuel pump assembly most of which have an integrated non serviceable fuel filter. Actually I’m pretty sure most Japanese and Eruo bikes have some variant of a Denso fuel pump/filter system. My old Triumph 1050 had a similar system and I managed to develop a work around. (Hope the link to my G-Drive document works?) 2011-03-05 Triumph 1050 Fuel Pump & Filter Mod.pdf - Google Drive
  7. I really enjoyed the ST, lots of long days in the saddle A few well into the 1000’s. It was fast & functional and tickled a few of my desires; under seat exhaust & SSSA. The CP3 Yamaha motor has been on my radar since it hit the motorcycle shows in 2013-ish?; thanks to the Pace Pod cast for discussing it. And when I saw the first FJ09 in 2015 I was pretty sure it was my next road going bike. Finally found the deal I was looking for on a 2016 in LA did the old fly and buy. It’s been a fantastically comfortable and capable bike. I’ve never really considered how well a bike holds its value but older modern era Triumphs sure don’t. My ST did have a lot of miles on it but it was in excellent condition. She went for a song. Had I had the garage space I would have just kept her; my youthful lust of the 916 sometimes still need the under seat exhaust & SSSA tickled... Also, the plastic tank was quickly distorting on our silly efforts to put half burned hydrocarbons (ethanol) in our gas tanks!
  8. Ive owned three Triumphs, 2000 Sprint RS, 2002 Daytona 955i and a 2005 Sprint ST. Put the most miles on the ST.
  9. Also likely the front brake rotor rocking back and forth on its floating mounts.
  10. Here’s the bungee cord mounting, it’s 10s to mount or take off and no dangley buckles and straps on the bike.
  11. I also prefer tail bags to top boxes and there are lots of options that will fit a laptop. I’m currently using item below. However, I’ve always found the included straps and clips to be cumbersome and time consuming. I’ve modified all of my bags with some bungee/shock cord material and a suitable place to stretch and hook it too. Lots of places on the FJ to do this. SW-MOTECH Jetpack Tail Bag WWW.REVZILLA.COM From tail bag to backpack and then back again, the Jetpack Tail Bag is great for adventures on and off the bike.
  12. Mine didn’t survive the winter, last ride was likely in November last year. No battery tender for 4-ish months, bike garaged at 50 to 60*F. Put it on the charger over night the other day and just click click when I tried to start. This is a 2016 so 4 years with no real battery maintenance isn’t bad I guess. Anyway Shorais on order, one for my FJ and one for the missus FZ-07
  13. You could always try a Borescope. I've got a stand alone item similar to the smart phone version and its been pretty useful. https://www.amazon.com/USB-Borescope-Endoscope-Android-Inspection/dp/B074KXB3JM/ref=asc_df_B074KXB3JM/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=198103677721&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=11734549815580049762&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9009062&hvtargid=pla-371040107488&psc=1
  14. Per this thread I purchased the Abba stand a few months ago. I’ve got several bikes in the garage and pretty much have one of the bikes on the stand at all times. It’s by far one of the best tools I’ve ever invested in. The company was super easy to deal with and helped me out adding a few extra addaptors for free.
  15. Glad it was a strait forward repair. Did the dented case look cracked from the inside?
