Jeffrey Thanks for the comments!
It is great to be back on the best all around, do everything well, bullet proof motorcycle!
When I darksided my 05 I replaced to rear brake caliper linkage arm with flat stock, ground off some of the center stand and inner fender. Will I need to do this on the 13 as well?
Looking forward to see you guys out on the road!
Ride safe..............Jeff

Me too, on my '07 the G-Max AS-03 was the first one. Michelin Exalto is the second. Don't think we'll ever find Exaltos again. General "updated" the -03 to the -05 that I am not inclined to try. I like the killer tread pattern of the -03 for our rainy season here other folks call "summer".

Thank you Pterodactyl,
What kind and size tire do you use?
On my 05 I used the Bridgestone Potenza 205/50 R17 89V at 37 PSI.

Hi Everyone!
I am new to this forum, so if this is posted in the wrong place, just let me know.
I pick up a used 2013 today. Sure is good the have an FJR to ride again!
I had an 2005 and sold it in 2012 with 108,000 on the odometer. The 05 was darksided for about 100,000 miles. I see in the owners manual of the 2013 that changing tire size may screw up the traction control. Now I am curious, has anyone darksided a 2013 and what does it do to the traction control?
Ride safe...................Jeff
