What did you do to your FJ-tracer-gt today?

Recommended Posts

How did those bags work out? Gonna be able to keep them out of the wheels at speed? I am a fan of softbags, Wolfman and Giant Loop. They tend not to break if you drop your bike.

Guys who got red have the added benefit of the FJR bags matching. I have the FJ bags on order, but I might get some FJR bags and wrap them with vinyl to match. $800 is a lot of cheddar to throw down on bags. Especially if you already have some... If my LG helmet fits my buds FJR bags, I might pull the trigger.
 
Can you fit your helmet in those?

That's genius. I heard that they were the same backs, but I never knew you could order just the lids.
 
You get them from the stealer or fleabay or?
 
I gotta quit coming here, I keep opening up my wallet...

You can buy them from any online Yamaha parts dealer or go to your local shop. Although the price isn't significantly cheaper than the whole damn bag!

Yeah, I saw that. I'm going to keep my eye out for some blem ones on fleabay or gregslist. I'm going to vinyl wrap them anyway to match.

@cthruu the shorty windscreen looks nice. I'm debating it as well. Is it on the high position in the pictures? I think it is, but curious. Maybe the pictures are deceiving, but in the low position it looks like it would be significantly shorter than stock. Would love to hear what you think and how it compares to stock for performance and height.
 
Is it the Cal Sci one?

Yea its the Cal Sci and yea its in the high position. I really like it. I like that its a little wider than the stock and since its not as high the air hitting your helmet is clear. I was disliking the buffeting of the stock windscreen and this one seems better. Did almost 100 miles today. I'm up to 700 and change.

Interesting. Doesn't seem wider from the pictures. As long as it clears the hand guards, But if it's made for the bike, it obviously does.

Scroll down a bit to the table. Compare the widths to the stock shield.

Installed mirror extensions, great I no longer have to look at my arms. Also did a test ride with new CaliSc tall windshield, perfect in the low position nice and quiet no ram air noise.

Your fender eliminator? Pics please and was it a kit? I saw the graves one on YouTube for fz-09 wonder if it's the same?

That was mine. Nice work. Love the look of the back now. Just waiting on my flush mount front signals to arrive.

I've got the Yoshimura FZ-09 fender eliminator on mine. Fits perfectly. Only difference is that the FJ has a longer tail. So with the FZ the plate sits right under the tail light and on the FJ it's recessed a few inches.  http://fj-09.org/post/1556/thread
