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

Gas mileage is lower, but it's also lower on the car and the truck at the same time so maybe weather or gas.

I'll have a little more fun on Sunday after the rain passes through and the temps are back near 50.

My mileage always drops when the weather turns cold, especially with E10 fuel.

14 R1 front radial master cylinder and 320 mm rotors are icing on the cake

Can you say 2 finger stoppies!?

 I still have one set of spacers left for the 320mm rotors conversion if anybody needs them. like to see them put to use and not collecting dust on the shelf.

Somebody take him up on this... it's a great upgrade, and the caliper spacers are the only difficult part to source these days.

I may take them off your hands as spares or for my VTR1000F front end swap.

How muchie?

I only get nervous when one vehicle's mileage drops. When it's all 3 at the same time by about the same %, I figure it's the gas or environment. I don't buy gas at the same station or from the same brand either, tank to tank. 

 

Now the one time my old 250's mileage dropped in half and no other vehicle, I got nervous. Thankfully it was just 1 tank. Doesn't take long to run thru a 2 gallon tank at 25 mpg. 🥴

Finally got to ride my new Road 6 tires and K-Tech fork springs, feels like an entirely new bike now. Need to tweak preload/sag for sure, and probably tire pressure as well as rebound damping, but it rides dead straight and doesn't want to wiggle like it used to around 40mph.

 

For anyone wondering, I am about 185-190lbs in gear and did the following:

0.9n springs from K-Tech

5W Maxima fork oil at 130mm gap

Michelin Road 6 32F/38R
