  1. Ah.. the first water cooled Harley!!!
  2. This is a nice option for heated gear that I like to use vs powerlet. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00E3D5QPY/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  3. 2014 Hayabusa - GSX1300R - Suzuki Motorcycles ... lol.. obviously a judgement call, and a grey area... a quick bike can be fast up to 100/120... then it's not that quick but is getting faster, just doing it slower than some other bikes lol A fast bike may not be all that quick but has a high top speed. In the end, doesn't really matter much... buy what you can afford that gives y ou passion for this hobby.. and try not to kill yourself or others.
  4. There's a couple really good options. I bounce back and forth between the Dry Spec D38/D28 combo DrySpec D66 Waterproof Motorcycle Dry Bag Modular Packing System in Black, Grey & Orange | 66L Total | TwistedThrottle.com But, in AR I had these much more affordable bags: FG Torrent bags Google Express ...
  5. I prefer the functionality of a top box that I use 100% of the time vs the need to go over 100 or higher which is a very low percentage and not much functionality... The Tracer is not a fast bike, but it's a quick bike and that quickness is more than enough for my adrenaline needs.
  6. They won't explode at 100+ (closed course of course) but a top box may cause a tank slapper.. Depending on wind the top box on mine will cause a wobble that could progress into a tank slapper - typically starts around 110 but depends on wind as to if it will start there or closer to 130 (closed course). 20lbs is no big deal either but most of my heavy stuff is in bags on my pass seat.
  7. The Garmin Zumo series GPS devices have a built in Up-Ahead app. In previous models if you tried to search for nearby gas stations it would do a circular search based on your current location and that might mean you'd have to turn around to get to the closest gas but you didn't really know how far that was until you selected one and added to your route finding out that station 5 miles away has a canyon in between and may take 50 miles to get there. The up-ahead app looks at your route and stations in front of you and close to your route... MUCH better and you can easily see if they are popular stations and many or a mom/pop place you may not trust. This feature is also in some other Garmin devices:
  8. If you just run it in your garage you'll hear it come on once it gets to a certain temp... check that the fan blades move freely, with bike NOT running of course. If not, there may be something blocking it or. If so, it might have blown a fuse so check those, even if they move freely now what was blocking it could have dislodged.
  9. So, don't buy chain lube, instead buy gear lube as your chain lube... so keep buying chain lube... lol For now, sticking with my PJ1Blue.
  10. Got mine this week. Haven't had a chance to put any miles on it but feels good. The very front had about a half inch cut on it that had to be done during the built. The box and packaging were in great shape. Contacted Corbin and they said send it back when you can do without it for 3 weeks and a warranty repair will be done, you have 1 year to do it and we pay shipping...gotta love good customer service.
  11. Plus, you don't have to reach for the gps... it's much easier to mess with.
  12. I'm sure Yamaha has setup instructions for new bikes and they obviously didn't follow them. That mistake could have even caused a fire or other type of issues so yeah, whomever did the setup was not paying attention to what they were doing. That would be the last place I would go moving forward, for anything.
  13. I don't remember but I'm pretty confident it should fix it.
  14. I was installing something and a screwdriver just touched the positive terminal ad frame I assume... The menu was blocked out.
  15. 19 GT.. I did the same thing as soon as I got the bike and had to order the stuff to clear codes, but that will fix it.
