Hi David,

I’m 74 and I cannot have claimed to always be gentle with my bikes.

LOL thanks for the chuckle John! I can attest to this fellas appreciation of taking his time. Out of the 5 bikes he had in his garage, his favorite and most mileaged bike was his 650 Vstrom. He has rode that bike all over the USA. Last trip was from Danville Ky to Alaska and back. After I got my bike home from purchasing it I was doing a little detailing on it. Got to the gauges and was cleaning away on the speedometer for a couple of minutes and not having any luck. Grabbed the flashlight and realized he had literally taken a fine tip paint pen and made a line about the 62 mph mark and the same length as the red tip of the needle. I quit trying to get it off as I wanted to leave it to remind me of the day I bought it, and how cool he was.

Agree with the concept of having the ecu flashed for the biggest bang for the buck. I did this on the Concours I just sold. It was a far bigger improvement over the Akrapovic slip on muffler. For well over half the cost. Iím getting to the point that I prefer less noise from the exhaust system. Other than the weight savings, there isnít a tremendous power gain. Just my. Two cents

It's not a Harley. There is very little bolt on horsepower to be found.



I have a Series III. By about 10 years into the life cycle of the model, MamaYama has done a pretty good job getting the EFI dialed in, but from most of my reading, FJR riders seem to use the PC to cure rideability problems, not power - or rather, lack of power problems.

Time spent looking at motorcycles, even Harleys, is never wasted.

If you want to spend the money on it, get a full exhaust from Delkevic, headers and all, get a K&N filter, and have IVAN flash your ecu for your mods. Gonna be a lot of money for a handful of HP though. Probably not good enough bang for buck, unless you buy a part every so often over time.

I have a 2005 I’m thinking of selling, can I ask how much you paid? Mine has all the goodies installed and just curious what the market is like.
Power commander works well, fork brace, bar risers plus rear off set , Cruise on grip���� Header exhaust pipe but stock mufflers.
Corbin seat, my bike was the mold model and I got them free ��C.Baileys windscreen too

Since an opinion was asked, I'm not a fan of modding. Backyard engineers often just end up creating new issues for themselves... more work, move expense, less seat-time, less enjoyment. Do the necessary bits like the CCT, maybe some LED replacements and a horn add-on** for visibility and audibility, and otherwise leave it alone.



** Do it right or don't do it at all. For example: https://www.r6-forum.com/threads/gui...8/post-5749514
