Installed my lowered passenger pegs today! Very simple and passenger already approves just from a seat test!

Where'd you get those, if you don't mind me asking? They look great!

And does your passenger's foot interfere with yours?

Mr. Gone,

Got them from motorcyclelarry.com in the clearance section for a reasonable price IMO. Tested both of us on the pegs and feet don't make contact as of now. We will see how it works out after a four day trip coming up!

Super quick and simple shipping and install.

Thanks for the response. I'm going to have to check those out. $64 ain't bad.

Took mine up to South Dakota Friday. My first big ride and I have to say what an amazing mile eater. I did have to make several of my own mods to it, but I have to do that with every bike I buy. All in all I couldn't be happier, it's a great bike and I'm still on the garbage OEM tires, which are shot at 3K.

Seals done, rock guard removed permanantly?

Thanks! So far I've done three 2hr rides. Two of them were two up. I didn't ever notice wetness forming on the forks like before. But between the second and third ride, there was moisture on the right seal. I rode anyway,it disappeared.

So, 1. It was some other liquid. 2. No more fork oil remains 3????

So, do I have to take the wheel off and etc to add fork oil? Meanwhile, I didn't reinstall the front fender/rock guard. I like the way the bike looks without it. What risk do I run not having it installed?

No you do not have to disassemble the wheel to add fork oil.

I've had those for a number of years. I also bought the optional heel guards so the wife doesn't burn her heels on the pipes.

Very good idea! I'm not doing any two-up riding right now the girlfriend does not want to have anything to do with riding but I've got those items on my "Want List" for later.

I appreciate the info!!!

I guess you don't "have" to, but I would especially if the oil is older. Pulling the forks off is a quick job. Dump the old oil and get a better measurement when finished.

Thinking about a trackday on the FJR since it's now the closest thing to a sportbike I have. On my R1 I was a Intermediate to Expert rider and I know I won't be treating the FJR like a R1 so I'm wondering if I could just run a sport touring tire like the PRs? Only reservation I have on that is that when I tried runing a street type tire {Pilot Power} on my R1 for better wear {vs Pilot Races}, I ended up chunking the rear due to heat.

Like I said, I know I won't be running the FJR like the R1 but it is heavy and it does have alot of torque. Any 1st hand experience would be welcomed greatly.
