  1. Just dropped $1200 on a Dianese Racing 3 D-Air jacket. Could not justify spending $600 on my helmet while not equally complementing with the latest state of the art protection which covers an many other vital organs. Even the deductible on my insurance warrants the extra 500-600 of protection over what I wear today. Give a review after I get it Wednesday.
  2. Hit 136 MPH on the seedo with absolutely no head-shake except for my hands. Dam that’s fast. I can see where the 320mm rotors would come into play here.
  3. Stock chain tensioner belongs in the garage with the rest of the stock crap Yamaha neglected to keep in-line with what this bikes performance. Giles make top of the line chain tensioner for this bike. I have one. I know nothing about chain moving while tightening axel bolt. Lol.
  4. Indeed they do. All tucked nicely behind the master cylinder.
  5. I can’t say enough how important chain slack is to this bike in particular. It is one of the fundamental adjustments and effects a lot on this bike. Case in point. I just installed these two days ago. Had to pull the swing arm pivot rod out as part of the process. It slides right out with the proper tension of the rear wheel. All back together. 1st ride. Love the rear set. But the bike did not feel normal at all. Clutch felt like it was catching hard, bike was jerking on engine braking. All wrong. WTF I say. Drive back home. Look at chain and say “that seems a little loose”. Yup. Probably 2-3mm tops slack added due to the swing arm removal. Set it back my normal, got on the bike and was like and immediately after leaving the driveway, bike was back to its old badass self. Booting new kicks.
  6. How much $$ if you don’t mind me asking. I have a friend who has owned over 32 bikes in his lifetime. Hs said this bike is the best kept secrete out there. You won’t be disappointed.
  7. $400 plus shipping for anyone on this site. US only. Shipping to Canada is possible, but taxes and duties will hurt you. Just went threw that with another member who was going to drive over the border in S Dakota and pick up at a parcel location. The cost went beyond what he was hoping for. But I’m open to anything. FedEx tracking provides unparalleled insight into when your package will be... Here is the link my original shipping details. It has weight and dimensions for anyone looking and wondering about shipping costs

  9. Thanks. Like I needed to spend another $200 bucks. Hope my exhaust sells fast. Lol.
  10. This is going up on Ebay here soon - also just to be clear, the hole is not the entire width if the open weld (it's not even the width of the gas vapor mark). It's a pinhole (if that) that is open to the header. $425 + shipping to anyone here (US only - some exceptions). Will be $450 on Ebay. Can is brand new as you can see. Thanks for looking
  11. It’s simple common core math here in the US. Miles since last fill-up, divided by what goes in, equals liters/gallons per mile. You should never trust any electronic gauge. Taste test always best.
  12. My nephew Preston grabbing a handful of throttle. Was priceless the expression on his face when the bike hit the rev limiter. Made my heart full. Love family. Love bikes. Love life.
  13. Noodling on letting go my 2nd Yoshi R77 full exhaust. If you've been following me at all this was the header that Yoshi warrantied. It has a pinhole (and I mean pinhole) on one of the welds. Nothing that impacts the operation. System was installed last October when purchased new. Only has about 1000 miles on it. Yoshi sent me a new replacement and did not want the original back. So what's included is a brand new never installed can, with the used header and all the install parts. I did not use the new can because Yoshi changed the name to TRACER on the placard and I would rather keep FJ. Plus I removed the baffle. So the new unit you will have the choice on the baffel. These are $850 new. If you are interested let me know. I'll entertain any reasonable offer. Shipping only in the US. Pictures to come later images added. You can’t even pass a pin head through the hole. Welder just didn’t close the weld properly. I know it there because I can pass tiny amounts of air if I blow on it. Couuld be plugged in a heartbeat. I pressed the warranty issue because for $900 it should have been perfect.
  14. Discovered a slight, yet puzzling head shake at 132MPH. Puzzling because there are so many possible culprits. All discussed to nausea on this forum. I’ve even started a few threads. I’ve got this bike so dialed I’m not say I’m overly concerned especially given the speed. Just would rather do without. Too many other things to concentrate at that speed. Like “What the heck am I going to have for dinner tonight”.
