  1. @scopie85, I can ride a tank and a half without discomfort, plus I can slide back and forth when needed. I don't know what foam the French are using, but it works very well.
  2. @Rex_4321 As luck would have it, this locally available screen https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/313059507031 will fit the 2015/2016 model with very minor modification to the mounting plate (bottom 2 holes of the new screen align, top 2 have to be moved higher up to where the 'metal prongs' are, remove the rubber plugs from them and drill out with a 9mm bit). This comes from China I also got hold of a similar gps phone holder bracket locally at a great price https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/283877887195 it looks like a replica of the one you showed me. It's very decent quality and quite sturdy, made out of steel. I had to use a little bit of fine wet and dry sandpaper in between the ball (not made of rubber) and the phone holder clamp to help it grip. This is the one that vibrates your phone, early prototype. This is the phone holder I went for as I don't have a quad lock syste, https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Universal-X-Grip-Motorcycle-Motorbike-Phone-Holder-Mount-Clamp-USB-Fast-Charge/323934055755. it's fairly decent quality for the money and very sturdy. The arms on this one will press the phone buttons,if the phone is centred. Good luck with your ongoing project.
  3. If your bike is 15 model, ecu wont take the factory quickshifter, but aftermarket will cover it.
  4. I tried with mine, but the screens are separate and I couldn't figure out the process to do the smaller one. The smaller one also has wire ribbon into its side, seems very fragile. I gave up on doing any of it, although if you wanted to do the main screen it should work the same as the 09.

    BMW F900XR

    If Yamaha bought out an electronics package like the current Kwakas or BM's I would be happy. Suspension upgrades would be nice, saves doing it all later. They have the engine and frame, but, everything else could be upgraded. I was talking to a GT owner the other day and his bike still looked like my 15, just different colours, and he spent 4k before it left the showroom on suspension and exhaust. That upgrade to his put it in the same price range of the top line FX.

    The BMW XR will most likely be my next bike unless Yamaha can bring the GT into the 21st century.
  7. @Rex_4321, Where are you located? Suspension setup properly, I had mine done in Brisbane by Ride Dynamics. I have a GIVI Screen from Webike in japan.

  13. We have been let out for a run in COVID-19 times. Went to one of the local bike runs and spent a few hours taking pics. Still managed about 350 k's for my own bike time. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=ms.c.eJxFWElyBCEM~_1EK7~%3Bj~%3BH0u1hTyVE4HGmySb6bBrYidOHG~%3B76299Uq9du~_1vfVJKSi~%3BW2tbXrh~_pt186~_3LfOs73fZ~%3BEWrTmPu237zHnPd59x~_e~_UKxvx6xT3r7k51~_dems1rA~%3Bt~_9x~%3B9a177N~_k~%3BRj71bRvZ~_wnv8~%3B67otI3tez9hfvvfadd9q~%3BF~%3B4Y~%3Beme~_5r~_6uxn83zVxFPN82MvNd9~_Iv5W5kOQD~_anHed77599O9yffOSu79TLzquflH9rka2HTH4sXrxfhNdaX~%3B3E7uDhvn1xnJfY~_kz877zeRnzRXCvqR7wE~%3BE~%3B6f~_B~%3B0F~%3BBeea7ffw1f~%3BnpHG~%3B74VNbBj9Wix~%3BgJRYvBXzw~_xr~%3B~_~%3BI88N3Et2gA~%3B5f~_Nvxl~%3BQt4L9a7AvcJ~_VHgB~%3B3Dfbn32R1~%3Bie82m~%3BuUfEM1bvF7b8TPeBzxiSxeJj7muwvxXMZjiOduPMPvfPebyPsPz4fOqhiPgO9F~%3Bic8bPIDfO7FYw5ecvEK~_0n7t8DXV2~_z~_9Uv~_~%3BD8hf9rL~_b7SPp~%3BkY9D~%3B4BvPawP~_FuxfAI~%3B4~_mTJKJNoz~%3BInxOvF~%3BjN1acLfWK9AvmnfXHkQ2jvgr~%3BF87Cfa3~%3BY90XAeoH~%3BD99mYZMP4~%3Bkw1OPlS3Vu~_PmX0E8lfwX8tdVf~_G~%3B054JPq8cHenBZz2PA7~%3BoLvvvej~%3B3ivmF~%3B7R~%3BU~%3B~_mDKepziC~_9k28z~_t~%3BQ69z8Ak~_rz~_BPNOPpxHnqtc19cZv1QH85u0Z8zO9xQT3fvo7eWj69tajBY9H~%3BY~_BzLD~%3BBF2M8Nv6UEs9ZUz~%3ByWWrq78589XzvSr719MvD~_PQMvg~%3B1RHr0oB5ezX3shdCeD1~_V51WR71y~_XvTDd7~_fwZPSX5cPH3kfXk1Hf62c~%3Bh0FPt73BoVivzI5qA~%3B7vYUDv29fwV97~%3BLW4478RzwZFUuqv~_tSjZOsx~_~_wHptAToz869aqzeOuJp1lPr5z4hN~%3BHRb35fQ9~_M9~%3B3oWfqv3yL2a~_nT~%3BYJ6md~%3B82~%3BQr1j7wFMyn8Br5sbriPfhL6LHnr362eQ7m~%3BEd9K9cvj61Xv1OgZ4p18NP0WJ~_pp7JfnDqYp5ZfPfwjfPbJygTH9eIPzf~_M~%3BxK8qeQr2C~_JBv2F7~%3Bgx8YPPMb9zYfzt~%3BFc4O28~%3BQzg5fy~_n~%3Bwx3xYJvDnrN~%3BunuT~%3BzyJdm9hvwxckXxOsbL~%3BK9~_mgtgx~%3BWSwX5Jj514q~_zeJEAf3i~%3BYN6k3vk9wOP2P~_D1EK8H~%3BGZ~%3BLJn6KPtBgB9r3y705hj9cfCf~%3BHP4x~%3BvkzFp619AHJz8xr56mvTP1EeqZg69CvnqMP0H~%3BRaDnzvxc5JN6YJgXOL~_aQu~_T~_bXpb9nsb477Yu9Dvyn2G60L~%3BlMv0P8P53cDvpP1VayL64KeqW6~_LvhOfXD4X0k9MvSH5Rf0dvUlFXr36h~_w98OXC~%3BRaaV9h34k~%3B6BP7t2Ier53HE~%3BPDr7~_gntRzvXO~%3BMV9ZM8127HnwU8hPvGfkbH864Cv1Bnq9ehjoF7X9Any01b9srJmPg3rtviL~%3Bq08H~%3BYbn7eB75jMw7xvfo5HD92K~_Avk8zKf54HfnEyvkO7hf0IMi3maet~_B5h1459aqgx6tXJQ69e~%3BlJ7HO~_tfSYfBfPf~%3BOQd7M~%3B5cyXX5qe~%3B3g~%3BHdb3m4S~%3B80a~_NfrDe0~_aA~%3B9B~%3BJc69IH4R~%3B~%3BbeSahVz9~_6KyFfA3c57wvLLAmfmE~%3BaT~_R~%3B9z8S~_A~_6gfei4fvxYzRu~%3BRDf9DPOQ~_mIn~_58SviF~_Yb~_Wc~_E3plvmv0B~_pbQl9Ttn7oT9S7gH4d6ld~_7~_XPHs8r7J~_NF~%3BXg~%3BJWF~_q79eU9n8j2deE~%3BuPJMx80HyfZ1fB~%3Bfe~_SQV~_aVepBrW1CcRxL~%3BzQoEPzfvGnv34APwy~%3BkD~%3B9LNrx7yR1J~_E~%3BjB~%3B7sAv~_~%3BtBvJzvEnq280Ek8Em8FPC075E01Gu~%3Bv6j39veLeKk~%3B1uCv7hrzEvtFAt~_x~_Uvkl~%3BYc8zt~%3Bn~%3BheB7P2nXfR~%3B6l~%3Bjv6m1NNozH9n8Qp88fu4iJf4cIc9zlOJ95Jx7dAnuTvPFvoH~_Y15KjhPxbwfzaivGcgX~_0Eq~_J0bf0Pf2Y~%3BBL76HPyKPf9tPFfMF8e6YwIT66vPeyRv73sD~_5Tpw384zgfOrV3hfS~%3B7W2Kc91Gvfi473sfB97IXv1~%3B78npiX~_PELvSp~_j98P7vmt53vb85hXOB964~%3B6fvmKeYj7jDN5EWI~_DejH~_EODjbj9EfVdfHf3Rd43~_T3wXfj9TiX~_X9GE2.bps.a.953828608384096&type=1&__xts__[0]=68.ARDFVgYtAhBWv1g5NMuWeZOKi1YTGgmt8po2B8pk4vP9c8oLEWESRfC_ZVH9yshKKbQYZci7FV1IXbf6YhGG_FVs3fULH3WJqtiGZo8qUDtvQw1CAGkd_fIYk_Mg8dRSBsgUyweWWcnDXTWz95E00pYZBTIyKOgm_7TzI-VbCRoGH-bGhidL4Qoip1X_4pgIdBnc0HrPagy5fcisTHaNxGM5-WqIyhP1Ar0Eb23DC6sRRm41BZ35bq35FI4nkI8FCt1ouRLaWyPPV_qm4xtABv4HZsrft1JNHWhAeR8OZHP9twtpF-x3JdcDkVYS58WgWqBFFZ9UM1oL2kAURwfCAN329gjhHhaY6I6gldBJhNZLjV-xpFaqEfOfUXK0L00epdnW69lMDMB6TsXuQoBP-RqvF7Aqy0hT0ZIdpUAu6YMMkS9WxxeMa1N_9n7Vi3MhICfd7IWHvQEWio_ZTQ&__tn__=HH-R
