Nice!

"Now I can only get the clutch clunking issue to be solved ..."
Try holding the clutch in for 5 seconds before selecting 1st gear, works for me.

Best regatds

Select first gear before starting.

Pull in clutch (don't forget)

Start bike.

No clunk.

PITA but no clunk.

Sit for 5 mins while bike warms to 2 bars so oil light doesn't come on.......

It could be worse.

That's an AE (I believe) folks. All your advice is for naught.

I did not know they made a black AE.

Guess I should spend more time reading and less time riding....

It's not black,

If I remember correctly it's called charcoal on the AE model. Poor lighting doesn't help in the pic. either. Doesn't he know all FJR's clunk. ;)

Don't Worry Surly! You're excused for not knowing anything about the Wonderful World of the AE. It's a Happy Place where, you can be in the next gear as fast as your brain can think it! You'd like that world very much. Best Regards! :)

Were the 08 and 09 AEs the same color? I thought the 08 was Granite Gray and the 09 was Matalic Titanium. I love the Granite Gray on my 08. When I saw a holdover 08 AE on the floor for $9999.00 I had to have it and the 07 was history!

That is a great looking bike. The gray goes well with the silver tail section. Classy.

Delavan, Wisconsin. I've passed by there so many times on the way to my relatives in Wales and Delafield. Enjoy the bike!

Those tires are the snow tires for my car, and my two daughter's cars. Nothing more.
