  1. I have those and they are great. Hope you enjoy them too!
  2. Finished installing McCruise cruise control on my '15. Been looking forward to this pretty much since I bought the bike. Fairly easy install, and the provided instructions are very clear, so no need for a how-to.
  3. Well... Fixed it myself. Apparently I just needed to walk away for a minute. For those wondering the answer, gently pull the lower portion of the fairing towards you while turning the clip with a screwdriver. Slips right out!
  4. Looking for advice on how to remove the expansion clips on the lower portion of the inner fairing (pictured). On the ECU removal thread, they use a screwdriver, but I can't figure out how to make that work.. It just spins. I've tried gently prying, but don't want to break it. Any help is appreciated, I'm trying to install the McCruise.
  5. Great work on the fabrication! So you just lift the back flap to open the underside storage?
  6. 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.
  7. $100 is a steal if 1) you like how it feels, and 2) the seat is in good condition.
  8. I like the sound of the IXIL. They're only showing the hyperflow for the FZ-09 though. Thanks for the link!
  9. 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!
  10. @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.
  11. 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.

  12. 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.
  13. 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?
