Got my 2009 FJR fitted with Delkevic exhaust and a Cal Sci Shorty windscreen.
Thank you! I love the shorty windshield, it works for me. It all Depends on the type of riding you do really. I live in California and mostly ride in great weather and not my rides are not all day long usually. In the down position you get a good bit of wind which I don’t mind and like the feeling of being out on a bike and I love the looks of it more than anything. In the highest position, it provides a nice pocket and blocks the wind totally for me. I am 5’10”.I have to admit, I really like the lines, the simplicity and quality of the fairing pieces on the Gen 2 FJR's!! I only wish my profile was a gorgeous!
Please let us know what you think of the shorty windshield.
You are correct, they are the 13” Delkevic Tri Ovals. For the price you can’t beat them, they look and sound great!Are those Delks the tri-ovals? I dig the end caps. I have them but they look shorter than yours. If I remember right mine are 13 or 14 inches, yours looks to be longer. Or am I seeing things?
Nice looking ride. As others have said, this profile looks much more like a sport bike. Also something I would like to get to with the bags off. I noticed you have cut the rear fender back to just under the plate, if I am seeing this correctly. I'd like to cut it back too, and not sure of, the line just under the plate, or near top of plate but keep the plate fasteners. Any advice appreciated on the mod.Got my 2009 FJR fitted with Delkevic exhaust and a Cal Sci Shorty windscreen.
No requirements that I am aware of in the US. I cut mine so that I can get the tire under there easily on the center stand.Rob - if I can spend your $$,, you should get the Delk's.. they sound GREAT on the FJR. I was going to get them for mine. Be carful if you cut the rear fender. I believe there is a red reflector at the bottom of the fender that you'd have to look at re-locating. Not sure of the full 'legal' requirements on having it.
Oh, well. I guess every bike I have ever owned is illegal I doubt I'm getting pulled over for a reflector violation.I Googled motorcycle reflector laws and this came up...
"The short answer: Yes. In all the states in America (and really, in many countries internationally), bikes must be equipped with both lights and reflectors in order to be legal to ride. "
Like every other law requirements probably vary state to state.
There is no such thing as a "safety inspection" or any inspection when selling/buying a motor vehicle in MN. Honestly the vehicle doesn't even have to exist - if you have a title, you can transfer it.Oldjeep - probably not, but here in Ontario if you go to sell the bike, they won't give you a safety for it, or they could deny you one, until you fix the issue.. was just food for thought.
Hi, I’ve been riding in Canada for over 40 years, with cut back fenders. The plate, and lights are the only legal requirements as I understand it.Oldjeep - yes, dont quote me, but I remember reading on a forum... not sure which one now, that law enforcement could get you in trouble for not having the reflector, but again, dont quote me. Could also be a Canadian law. And yes, I realize the motorcycle would have the running lights in the back, but I dont make up the laws/rules.
