  1. So the pictures will probably explain better than words but I installed a steering damper that moves around when moving the handlebars. I know that it's normal for them to have a couple of ball joints to allow them to move some but this one has mount with a hinge that allows for a ton of movement which seems to not allow the damper to do its job. You can see in the first two pictures how much movement there is when moving the handlebars and the third picture shows the hinge on the mount itself. Maybe I installed it wrong but I just can't see how this would work with this hinge allowing so much movement. Hopefully someone here has had a similar experience in the past. Thanks in advance.
  2. The bolt isn't rotating though, just the nut. I marked the bolt to make sure.
  3. So just as I've read about from other owners on several Yamaha forums, I managed to strip one of the rear sprocket nuts and/or bolts when torqueing it down even though I was only torqueing to 30 ft lbs. I'm not sure if this is because I should have been using new nuts or what. When I try to loosen the nut, it just spins. How do I get this off? I've never stripped a nut or bolt before so I really don't have any experience in handling it. If the bolt threads are stripped, I'll just replace the cush drive as I've found a 2014 and 2016 FZ-09 cush drive on eBay for about $30 and I'm sure that would be easier than dealing with changing out one of the bolts. I have a 2015 FJ-09. Would one of these fit?
  4. I bought my 2015 FJ-09 used with the original chain and sprockets. I'm at 20k miles and the chain is definitely shot so I ordered a new one with some JT sprockets but I feel like my sprockete, especially the rear one, show very little wear. The front one definitely looks like it has some shortening/flattening of the top of the teeth but the rear one hardly shows any wear at all. I bought the heavy duty RK chain so I'd like to get 20k miles out of it but would hate for the sprockets to wear before then. At the same time, it would be nice to save $40 and keep the new rear sprocket for the next chain and just change the front one. What do you guys think? First two pictures are front sprockets, the rest are rear.
  5. Fair enough. Email sent. How much do you weigh exactly? You don't think the 10 NM springs were too stiff? I went back and forth between the 9.5 and 10 but now I'm second guessing myself.
  6. I pulled the trigger on some K-Tech 20IDS cartridges to match my Razor shock. Now I just need to confirm what fork oil to go with and what height I should be filling to. I weigh 250 lbs with gear and went with the 9.5 NM spring. I've done so much reading that my brain hurts but I'm still confused. Should I be looking for an oil that is approximately 16cSt@40? I think that's what I've gathered from my reading. It seems like the Maxima 5W racing fork oil matches that specification. Will that work is there a better suggestion? Also, what height should I be filling to? Thanks in advance!
  7. That's what I wanted to hear, thanks. I plan to have them serviced every two years. I'm just going back and forth on whether I want to get the K Tech cartridges or spend the extra $200 for the AK-20s. If they last forever and I can put them swap them into a different bike, I feel like the AK-20s may be the way to go.
  8. Good to hear you like it. I ordered one late last night but was going to just cancel my order if I could have gotten it cheaper. Got it on sale for $720 though so overall I'm happy with it.
  9. I realize that this post was months ago but who was selling the Razor R? I weigh 240 also so I'd be interested if he still happened to have it for sale.
