Waxed the paint, cleaned the air filter, raised the idle from 900rpm to 1100rpm, removed the PAIR and performed the throttle return spring mod to lighten the throttle pull. I was going to perform the Barbarian mod but there's no way in heck that PIN23 is going to come out without a pin extractor. (sigh)
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.
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.

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
