To beak or not to beak .....

Recommended Posts

Installed the power bronze beak on my FJ and love it !  Gives the bike a great look.      I know some people don't like it , but I'm very happy with it !  Here's some pics ...

I like it, in fact, think I'm going to buy one!
 
I ordered one last week, not that I'm crazy about beaks but it just looks like somthing is missing without it.

Your bike looks great! My observation since installing this simple mod is it's the difference between Joe Schmoe at the traffic light asking "is that a crotch rocket?" and "is that a BMW?", which I'm fine with!

Edit: No offence to Mr. Schmoe, I'm sure he's a great person!

I like it .seen one in the flesh today it improves the look on the front end as I always thought it was missing something , so ordered one

I'm not a fan of "beaks" and if there is a close coupled fender already, unless the beak adds positive (beneficial) down force at speed without any negative effects (including from side wind), simply adding one for looks is illogical. Function over form.

I like it, but don't see paying $200 for a piece of plastic. Now if it was carbon fiber, that would be a different story!!

I couldn't agree more . The front end always looked to me like something was missing. The beak totally completes it.  I paid $160 total off eBay , including shipping to Los Angeles , California.  Not bad.  To me ... Well worth it.

I normally scoff at beaks, but a beak makes the FJ-09 look better! If I had a FJ, it would get a beak!

IMHO if it's just cosmetic I'd much rather get the front fender extender. I like add on's that actually have a purpose. Different strokes, different folks....
