...Coincidentally, I have finished design work on a bar riser for the FJ-09 / Tracer GT that I am producing here in Upstate NY...

Look very nice. What is the rise and offset on these.

Rise is 10mm and offset (pullback) is 20mm.

SIDE-STAND FOOT ENLARGER PLATE 

I installed this item today, from <mini-motor 3025>, costing AUD$21, USD$12, and delivered a mere eight (8) days after ordering.   It is one of the best-engineered pieces of kit I have seen (and I've seen plenty!), and it's a pity in a way that it is to be located out-of-sight 'down there'.   The base is a chunky 10mm in thickness, which means that the bike will stand a fraction more upright when on the side-stand - that will suit me.   

Functionally, it is very well done.   I have seen similar items held onto the side-stand foot by the heads of three screws, highly dodgy I'd think.   This version has two u-shaped plates that are fastened by no less than eight (8) hex-head screws, which I secured with some blue Loctite.   A measure of the quality is the fact that the item was packed in a moulded acetate case with some protective foam inside: many other bits I have bought costing far more than this have obviously been thrown into the mailing box or envelope by an ill-trained gorilla.

Very highly recommended.

Sorry, michiel, I didn't keep the link, but the E Bay motorcycle parts and accessories vendor is <mini-motor 3025>.

Soooo, been riding my 2015 (new last fall) on the original tires 7800 miles.  I'm curious the improvement when I get these mounted Friday :).  I educated myself over the weekend on all things motorcycle tires and believe I'm Lucky (which is my nickname) to be alive riding the way i have been on that rear tire.  Noticed some interesting wear a few weeks ago that got me thinking.  I was hoping to make till the snow before the purchase.  Glad I didn't.  Thanks Scott for always pointing me in the right direction.

The new tyre looks like the Michelin Road 5 - is it, and if so any comments please?

Yes. I’m apparently not smart enough to make intelligent comments on tires. Lol. But Texas Scotty I’m sure has a dissertation on these and all things Michelin.  I will report back with my feedback. They look sweet. Even the pattern on the inside is nothing I have ever seen.

Installed some Shinko 705s. Live on a dirt road and need a little extra traction. I'll review them if anyone is interested.

Dam. What roads you riding. Lol. Amazes me the multi-use this FJ offers. Nice

 I have the 705s on my KLR and i'm very happy with them. But the KLR is horsepower challenged, Hope they don't vaporize on the back of your FJ09.

I live on a 1 1/2 mile long dirt and gravel road. Tired of driving less than 10mph.
