Mine come in tomorrow and hope to get them installed Wednesday. Can't wait to try them out. If the PR's make the same difference as they did on the Versys the FJR is going to be a bigger beast.........

Having mine put on Wednesday also. Waiting for the Motul Coolant to come in tomorrow. Yep i put the PR3's on the Versys when they first came out and was really happy with them.

I removed my battery so I could charge it because someone (me) left the heated seat on all night. I also ordered $800 worth of new plastics. They are on back order until April 9th so for now I will be riding a two-face.

Got my relay arm bearings and seals today, along with correct size dog bone order. Thru on the bones and went for a ride. Oh Yeah ! The 5/8" shorter bones work perfect ,raising the rear slightly and "leveling off" the stiffer fork springs geometry. No scraping,quicker lighter feel too. PR4 GT's come tomorrow.

My '05 is apart for a general inspection including valves, plugs etc.. but as I get into it further, I find myself doing more and more...tonight, the headlight and the rest of the fairing came off. Wondering next how to lube the power windshield mechanism. Yam shop manual doesn't mention anything about it....
T-stat, plugs and other misc parts arriving tomorrow so I can start some re-assembly later this week...

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

"Sport mode!!"

love it! I am gonna have to start using that phrase to warn the others!

Rode to work today to test out the new PR4s. Rode home in a snow storm with high winds. It was only 36 so it didn't stick. When I got home, put the bike away and went upstairs, it quit snowing and the sun came out. Wind is still howling and it's starting to cloud up again.

Put mine back in the shed last Friday. Riding has become excruciatingly painful, but at least I can still walk reasonably well without a cane. Going under the knife 4/4. Looking to get it back out sometime mid May-ish I hope.

These are typically under the skin but mine is deep in the left thigh muscle, pressing on the nerve bundle that runs down the leg so most times it's a deep, dull ache; other times it's a cramp-like feeling, sometimes it feels like a shin splint but mostly it feels like a pulled groin muscle. I'm good for about 4 miles on the bike; at 10 miles I have to park it and my leg is basically useless.

I successfully completed the Barbarian mod and since I already blew my bike budget for the next while, I was forced to DIY a radiator guard until I can afford a COX Racing guard.

1/4" critter barrier and some Plasti-Dip and I've got at least a little something to protect the radiator. Not too bad for about $12.
