Hello from Wisconsin

Recommended Posts

I just picked up a new to me, used low mileage 2015 red FJ 09 (4,300 miles). I have already found this forum very valuable.  The bike came with a Madstad Windshield, and the Yamaha rear rack with an aftermarket top case.  I just found a set of used FJR side cases (wrong color and scuffed up).  Looking forward to enjoying this forum.

Thanks in advance!

Welcome, - get a radiator guard and enjoy the bike!  Collectively, we have identified all of the quirks and shortcomings with the bike and can usually provide a solution if you have questions.

Welcome from Madison! I bought crashed FJR lids off Ebay. I sanded, filled scratches, and sprayed with Rustoleum spray can bed liner. Turned out great and the finish and texture is pretty darn close to the OEM Yamaha cases.

Sure...One lid was purple, the other blue.

Found a pic of when I was working on the lids - I guess it was purple and silver (not blue). I taped off all the trim and reflectors  - I did not remove anything. I sanded the chrome trim and sprayed it. It's holding up well, and if it doesn't, its just a cheap and quick respray. These bags are big - you will hit and scuff them, so this is a great alternative to a $$$ paint jobs that would get dinged or scratched eventually.
