  1. Great work on the fabrication! So you just lift the back flap to open the underside storage?
  2. Anyone have any updates on this topic? I know @PFJohns and @koth442 was looking at this. But I didn't see too many replies detailing success or failure. Very interested in this route.
  3. $100 is a steal if 1) you like how it feels, and 2) the seat is in good condition.
  4. I like the sound of the IXIL. They're only showing the hyperflow for the FZ-09 though. Thanks for the link!
  5. Thanks @koth442! You nailed it. M5 x 0.8 x 20mm. I previously went with brass screws and washers (in the wrong size) for a tiny bit of bling. Suck with the washers, in addition to the OEM plastic ones. They don't show up too well in the photo, but they're there!
  6. @micah2074 or @koth442 any measurements on those windshield screws? I went with #10 24 x 3/4" machine screws, and they are just barely too big I think. Looked an exact match when I was in the hardware store. I'm afraid to torque too much more since the nut/receptacle portion of the windscreen mount is plastic. Any help is appreciated.
  7. Installed HeliBars handlebar risers, specifically for the FJ-09. I was going to do a "how to", but the instructions were so clear and easy to follow, that I don't think it's necessary. Took the bike for a spin, and the difference was immediately felt. No more reaching, a much more comfortable riding position, and it felt like I was in even better control than before.

  8. Re-rotated the handlebars back. I rolled them forward as a failed experiment in comfort, but looks like I'll invest in some bar risers at some point. Installed KTM handguards. As many have said, it was incredibly simple. Had to adjust some zip ties, but that's about it.
  9. Don't let your "need to ride" overcome common sense and safety. I'd ensure that they are sending a replacement, send your defective unit in, and wait. Why play with fire?
  10. Reviving an old thread... There have been several company's vying for the smart helmet market within the last few years. It's getting closer to being an actual thing. The latest I've seen is Crosshelmet. Apparently they're actually going to produce and ship "by June of 19". Personally, I'm into waiting through a few iterations while kinks are worked out. Thoughts?

  11. Looks like a bracket of some sort. Any idea what it is holding? The clutch cable still goes through the cut out just beyond it, like the FJ. Thanks for the pic, I feel better knowing someone it putting it to good use, lol.
  12. Order placed. Barkbusters is apparently out of the FJ-09 variant, so I needed an alternative. Does anyone have a link to bar end weights that work with both the bike and handguard? The most promising links early in the thread are old and no longer link to anything. Thanks for the help!
  13. Would the pulsing be the ABS kicking in?
