Other Motorcycles / Re: My new ride (FJR-1300)

Hey Jim, surprised you didn't like the way the fjr sits, handlebars to seat. I rode my friends '14, and it felt very much like Shoodaben to me... after about 1 mile I was totally comfortable with the bike.

Look on the bright side, now you have something new to farkle  ;) steve

Back in July?? of 2017 I posted my Fairing Glove Box Fix. I reversed the locksets so the locking tabs face forward... rendering them useless on purpose. Then I affixed VELCRO fuzzy tabs to the underside of the lids, folded nearly onto themselves. Then a Postage size VELCRO hooks square onto the outer edge close to the lid. Good to 102/mph. They DON'T open up. I'm not at my Computer with Photos, but they're here in COG somewhere. Locomotiveman

Just relocated from 4800' elevation to 700'.  Went for a short ride today (my first since being here) and noticed my idle speed, which was 1100-1200 rpm is now 1300-1400 rpm.  Runs great - just wondering if elevation plays into this?

Also, maybe just adjust it back down?

Thanks!

It's making more power at the lower elevation, I would estimate about 15%. Steve

Ah!

Well, after 2nd adjustment with a few clearances off a micron or two.

Throttle wide open made some difference.

#1-120psi, #2-110psi, #3-125psi, #4-124psi.

Valve job.......hmmmmm not for this faint heart at this time.

Are the valves better tight than loose on the feeler gauge?

Tires/Suspension C10 / Re: Stock Fork Springs
« Last post by Mcfly on Today at 12:00:38 am »
Those factory springs will give the front end a lot of dive when braking.  Keep this in mind,
because the front end will be a lot different.   You might want to look into the cut spring mod
to help with the dive.  On a bright note, the factory front end is very comfortable when cruising,
especially on bumpy urban type roads.  I didn't care for the instability when braking into turns,
so I went with Sonics.
