    Yup. If anything remotely catches on the hipsters jump on it to say they were first and drive the prices through the roof.

    Got out for about 40 miles on the 2013 FJR this afternoon. Ran over to the Legion Post to pay my dues on it. Started installing the Clearwater lights after I got home. Lights are mounted, dimmer switch is mounted, and started on the wiring. Have a few questions about the written instructions so heading to their website in hopes of figuring it out. Stopped for the night.

    I knew the 2013 had a lower cruise control limit but forgot about the cover over the battery. In order to get to the battery on early release 2013s one must remove 3 different dash panels by removing both of the headlight adjuster knobs which are held on by miniscule screws, at least 6 screws that you can see and 5 or 6 of those push pin rivets. On the 2014 to do the same job you remove 2 screws and 2 push pins. A little forum research reveals that Yamaha saw the error of their ways and changed the battery cover panel midway through the year and the new panel is available for about $90. Searched older threads and sure enough some enterprising owner wrote up excellent instructions for modifying the early release part with color photos showing what to cut off to make the panel identical to the 2014 on up part. Looks like some work with a Dremel tool is coming up.

    Well I am back from my mandatory time out. Haven’t ridden much or even worked on the bikes. Did get a lot done on the 13 Tacoma . Met Spencer and sold him a tuner for his Grom.

    All my rigs are purpose built. From crawling to camping. I also enjoy a nice stock truck for what that’s worth. Toyota’s are the jam!

    It was supposed to be 30 days but ended up 70+ days with no explanation. I joined another forum and did my truck build over there. I am only back here for the motorcycle forum.

    Definitely don't look at the MT10 or BMW M1000RR prices then :anonymous:

    Also, fun fact, adjusted for inflation Lego today is cheaper per piece on average than it was back in my day, and depending on theme has stayed pretty consistently around $0.11 per piece for many years. Licensed themes (marvel, star wars, mario, anything with a car brand) are almost always more expensive over their in-house themes.

    Welcome back! I still need to install that, I haven't figured out if I want to swap my exhausts or weld on a bung or do the stock o2 sensor adapting "L" bracket thing.

    Thanks!! I love the color as well. It was one year only and hard to find used so I decided to just suck it up and make the trek down to SoCal to get it. It was worth it!
    Thanks! And I hope you get one soon! It is an awesome bike.

    Thanks!!

    Ugh it's so bad. Every year I make a New Year's Resolution to not buy or sell any vehicles and every year I fail. This year I failed spectacularly. I think it was the worst year I've had in terms of buying/selling too much, especially when you include cars. At the beginning of this year I also had the Honda CB1000R that I sold shortly after getting the Navi as well as the DRZ400E.

    Anyways, the bike is insane for just gobbling up miles. At first I was very surprised by the weight and size of the bike, but quickly got used to it. The engine is SO torquey. It's the largest displacement bike I've owned by far and the torque is incredible. I can just roll on the throttle at any RPM in any gear and just fly forward. My brother said I kept disappearing down the road super quickly because accelerating is so effortless.

    Handling feels a little scary, but that was expected due to the height + weight of the bike and the 80/20 tires. I'm also too used to the KTM right now and how quickly that turns.

    Riding position is fantastic, it's tall enough that my legs don't feel cramped. The seat isn't super comfortable but not terrible over 7 hours of riding.

    Plan for right now is:

    - Mirrors (one of them was broken when the PO bumped it with a 2x4)
    - Rekey the luggage to use one key instead of two
    - Heated grips (already ordered)
    - Phone GPS mount
    - Giant Loop Fandango tank bag
    - Wrap the tank in clear vinyl to protect it (need to look into this further)
    - Install Diode Dynamics lights
    - Maybe new tires?

    Mirrors are done! I took them off the Versys. :rofl:

    upload_2023-12-2_20-55-40.png

    I also re-keyed the top box to get all the luggage on one key.

    Tomorrow will be a wash and de-stickering!

    I LOVE that paint scheme. I'very seen pics of a couple of FJRs repainted or wrapped like that. If Yamaha had ever offered that for the FJR any plans for a budget I had would have gone straight out the window. I'm glad you picked that one up.

    On the seat issue, check out Seth Laam at Laam Custom Seats in Redding, CA. He's done my seat twice. True custom seat, made for you based upon your height, weight, and inseam length.
