    2009 FJR1300 - 10k Miles - England - UK

    Thanks guys! It's a standard UK colour but I added the "1300" decals because I remember from the last time I owned one, people constantly asked what capacity it was, lol. New brake fluids is a good idea - I'll jump on that, thanks. Regards, Tom. .

    first long ride on FJR

    Motorad - the FJR will be "The One", I assure you. Like you, I had a big gap inbetween riding bikes and in the last couple of years I've had no fewer than 11 bikes!!!! That includes the new Honda CBF1000 and the new Guzzi Griso. I never kept any of them for more than a few months and then I...

    Newbie questions

    I lowered my 07 FJR with a dogbone kit. The bike dropped by 30mm and handled like a bag of shit. It's now back to normal height and I'm currently undergoing leg-lengthening surgery.

    Ultimate FJR horns?

    first long ride on FJR

    The longest single journey I've done is about 300 miles and I wouldn't honestly want to go much further in one day. To me, it's not about putting miles on your bike, its getting the most out of the miles you travel.

    Do people ask you what your bike is??

    I went to Warrington today to pick up a cartridge for my Linn and I parked the FJR right in the centre of the precinct. When I came back 10 minutes later, there were 8 foreign visitors taking turns to have their photo taken with one hand on the throttle as if to claim ownership :D I...

    PCIII Map - After 9 Dyno-Runs

    Over the last few weeks I've been trying the Wally Smoothness/Power map and although it seems pretty good, I feel that it's a bit on the rich side. The exhausts are very sooty. Now that I'm used to it, I think I'll switch back to my map and see just how different it feels.

    PCIII

    The installers of my PCIIIUSB failed to disconnect the O2 Sensor and after I did it myself, it ran far better. Click HERE to download [MadDogMcQ_Map 06/07] Copy Of Dyno-Printout

    PCIII Map - After 9 Dyno-Runs

    After the Quill exhausts were fitted, the bike had 9 Dyno-Runs to get the most out of the bike. A few people had asked me for a copy but I forgot to post the map for people to play around with - until now : :) Sorry! Click HERE to download [MadDogMcQ_Map] Suitable for 2006 bikes onwards...

    Hmmmm, wonder if the "new" grips will be able to be fitted to the 07??? And WHY has the screen-mount been altered? Has anyone experienced problems?

    Yes, I get that too. :rolleyes:

    Do people ask you what your bike is??

    I don't know about you guys, but a lot of people never seem to know what make or model my bike is. In all fairness to non-bikers, the FJR is quite subtle in declaring its manufacturer's name and its capacity, so because my bike doesn't have the two stripes on the side (it's an 06 model), I was...
