After reading the posts on the Barbarian Jumper Modification (BJM) on the Forum I decided it was something I wanted to do to my '07 FJR. While the info was great, I could not find any directions or pictures specific to Gen II bikes. It appears that the mod was originally done to Gen I bikes and, with one small change, works on Gen IIs. So, I did the mod on my bike, did the CO adjustment and took pictures, putting it all together in a Adobe Acrobat file. The change to the bike's throttle response was fantastic, so I'd recommend it to anyone. To help, any Gen II owners would like a copy of the Acrobat file, just email me and I'll send it to you.

Any chance you would like to put it out here so the general public can get it without bothering you with a PM? I'll host it on my site if needed.

Many folks have requested my documentation of the BJM and CO adjustments. Duff has offered to host it for me because I don't have that capability. So if everyone could hold on for a day or so we may be able to get it posted here.

By the way, the CO adjustment does a great job of smoothing out throttle response on acceleration in the lower gears. The rough stuff is gone.

No offense, but get a PCIII and do it right.

Today (April 4) I emailed out an Adobe Acrobat file of my Barbarian Jumper Mod and CO adjusted on a Gen II bike. I sent it to all who emailed me, not PMs. I'm good with bikes, much worse with computers. I know how to send a file via email but am still working on PMs.

Looks simple enough. Will have to do it this weekend.


Right now it is too nice to sit here.


Thanks for putting this out.

Couldn't agree more! We had a little discussion about OCD and Anal-retentiveness via email. As stated there, sort of a "Takes one to know one" situation. rolleyes.gif
