I've been working on the FJR for 4 to 5 weeks now making it my own. Had the ECU Ivanized and blocked off the air valves. New spark plugs air filter differential oil tires oil change oil filter. Add a stereo, speakers, Garmin with TPMS. Put on a seat Concepts seat. I think all I need to do now is finish my highway pegs.

Don't forget, you need metal tire stems, TPMS will bend or brake your OE rubber stems.

Good tip. I already have the T stems. This is the 3rd bike I've had this Zumo/tpms on.

So which cans are those? They look really nice on the FJR.

Those are the 13" stainless tri-ovals by Delkevic. I really like the look also. I tried the 17" tri-ovals and the 9" ovals and for me the 17's were to quiet and the 9's were to loud. So far the 13's are just right.

How many miles on your Ivan’s reflash and what are your thoughts/opinion/observations of the results ? Any difference in mpg’s and power? Would you do it again ?

I would do it again without hesitation. I've put just over 1000 miles on since being flashed with no complaints. The power increase is noticeable but it's not a huge increase. His dyno sheets show about a 5% power increase IIRC, I'd bet that's pretty accurate. The driveability is definitely improved... no more on/off throttle hesitations, it just does everything smoothly now. And I LOVE the 3rd drive mode. Touring mode (for me) is annoyingly sluggish and Sport mode as to twitchy for everyday use. Ivan mode is linear... if you want half throttle you open the throttle halfway. Reminds me of a pre-emissions bike, it just runs "right" all the time. And no more cruise control limitations! WooHoo!
You do need to run mid-grade gas but that's about $1.50 per tank difference. Not a big deal in my book.

As bolt-on power adders go I'd give this an A+

Edited to add... I've increase 1-2 mpg on my display and I've not been riding for good mpg numbers ;)

I really wish Ivan would get a Gen II flash ready.

You need some of these and superglue.

Ditto on your comments, my experience also..... except for the mid-grade fuel part that Ivan recommends. With the timing advancement, it would seem mid-grade makes sense, I get it, but I just went on a week trip where two of us ran regular.... several tanks in all kinds of situations, cruising to twisties.... we did not feel any detrimental effects nor did fuel economy change from our pre-flash days.
The engine from cold does rev up near 2000 rpm on cold idle and takes longer to warm up (timing advance makes it run cooler). Takes a couple of times to get used to that, but all good. I believe Ivan set the parameters such that the cooling fans come on at a lower temperature as well, as we noticed and we're OK with that.
