The FCR plunger also has no spike.

Strange, I've heard nothing but good things about the DJ kit + airbox mod. I ended up doing it with the GSXR 1000 can and it works great.

Not to harp on about this but how slippery is the all carbon seat cover from SC! I'm getting conflicting reports: some say its good some say they move around too much and can nearly fall off - WTF.

Need to adjust carb?

Last fall I bought a 2000 with the loud FMF pipe, open airbox, and pumper carb. I have since scrounged up a stock muffler. I am wondering what bad thing will happpen if I close up the air box, install the stock muffler, but do not change the carb?

Fcr carb will not run right with closed airbox or even an airbox with just snorkel removed. It doesn't get enough air at higher rpm and the fuel mixture richens out. Can't get the jetting right without an open airbox.

Anyone have any rear stock shock parts sitting around? Specifically looking for the rubber bumper, mine disintegrated and I need to replace it...I know alot of people replace their stock units, so maybe someone has this part sitting around and maybe wants a few bucks in exchange?

I don't have experience with the SC carbon but my son's Corbin is slippery. I bought just the all carbon cover from SC to possibly change out the gripper but decided not to. I laid it on the existing seat and didn't like the amount of movement.

Personal preference of course.

Call me an ex-KLR rider with bad habits but I got

one of these http://www.amazon.com/Coleman-Comfor.../dp/B006JMK7N8
and I also put one of these http://www.amazon.com/Northeast-Prod...s=therm-a-seat underneath it in back to extend my pillion room and comfort and we couldn't be happier .
All for about thirty bucks .

I believe Seat Concepts probably needs some more pics a just a little bit more info on the website so people know what they're getting. But i've only heard good things about the comofort of their seats.

So if I leave the airbox open and install the stock muffler, will I be OK if I don't adjust the carb?

Only one way to find out. I run an FCR with an open airbox and stock muffler. Don't see why you'd have to make changes, the stock muffler might be heavy but still flows fairly well for an OEM unit.

with the help of the car in front of me. Had the sun in my eyes so visibilty sucked and a pedestrian jumped out out in the front the car in front of me, but I didn't see him braking until it was too late. I managed to brake enough to reduce the impact quite a bit, but not enough to avoid the impact altogether.
