The Stiffy is a rear subframe support bracket that prevents failure of the rear subframe when you actually carry something in your trunk.

See Gaurald over on the other forum. They cost $100 and take about an hour to install.

Put MCL lowering pegs on both sides and the Two Brothers Black Carbons. Got some popping on decel, not sure if I'll de-pair or not. Found the highway pegs won't fit with the canyon cage. More to do next weekend.

I have changed the OEM windshield to Vstream. Couldn't test it yet - I must wait for better weather.

I installed 1" bar risers. So far, I like the change, but will have to wait for a seriously long ride to see if they cure the "between the shoulders" ache from previous rides.

Putting new tires on it this week.

Put on the new PR4 rear tire. Greased all of the driveshaft and u joint spines. new diff oil too. It was in the 20's this morning so I'll get to ride it after I go home for lunch. I'll ride it back to work and see how the new tires feel.

- I heard my dad say "holy Sh*t" over our intercom. -

Took the FJR out yesterday with dad to go enjoy the countryside. There was an older GSXR in front of us and I thought I'd be playful and catch up to him. I yelled "sport mode!" and kicked into said mode. Grabbed some throttle and I was off. My dad on his Honda 919 was dumbfounded that the big girl got up and hurled herself down the road that quickly. Honestly I am to everytime I switch from Touring. Lol

He said after catching up.. "So apparently you DO still have Ducati like performance, only now it's reliable." LOL
