    Stoked! New to me Bushtec

    Being a farm kid and CDL holder, I have to say there’s something badass about pulling a trailer around with my FJR, lol! Like the rototiller and rear PTO kit on my old Gravely tractor. Didn’t get used much but was just flat out cool. 🤣

    Side Panel Repair

    The mechanics of the mirror are fine, thankfully. Just all scratched up. …which reminds me - does Yamaha supply the paint code or are we left trying to match it on our own somehow? The “color matching camera” that my paint supplier uses is incredibly unreliable (from past experience). Any help...

    Side Panel Repair

    While we’re shedding tears here on the Forum, the other day my son backed my immaculate 2014 out of the garage to get to his 300lb. lighter V-Star and forgot to put the kickstand down. Dropped it right in the driveway. Mirror, front and rear crash bars, and handlebar end all damaged. Life...

    Steering Head Roller Bearing - Upgrade or Boondoogle?

    This steering head bearing issue has me thinking I need a little clarification. Is it true that: 1- some bikes manifest symptoms from the factory that leave riders scratching their heads until they finally pinpoint the issue, 2- some bikes may develop an issue over time and leave the rider...

    Greetings from South-Central New York State

    Welcome from southeast PA! Did the valve check and CCT on my 2007 last summer at a “tech day” in Ohio (Thanks Andy!). I was in the company of experts so unfortunately I did more helping than doing so I’m probably not the best candidate to help you with that but I do have a shim kit and I’m...

    Excellent advice, Rbentnail. I’m fortunate to have a buddy near me who rides BMW’s. I’ve never held that against him and he can even keep up with me (most of the time😛). So it would make sense to reach out to any other rider who might share interests other than just riding regardless what...
