    OEM header - Gen 1/2 maybe 3?

    I have an OEM header from my 2004. In good shape just usual weathering. Cats are intact. If someone wants a project to work on or to go with no cats, you can experiment with this one. Or if you have Holeshot header and want to get back to a stock unit with the crossover pipe, this migh tbe...

    2008 2009 left side mirror

    This is the clutch side mirror. It has some light scuffing from a stationary tip over onto gravel from the previous owner. I haven't tried buffing it but it is mostly just clear coat. I run FZ1 mirrors and don't have a need for this. $40 shipped or make an offer!

    Headlight guards for Gen1 $25 (sold)

    Hey guys I have the clear headlight guards that were made for the Gen1. I forget who made them but they are high quality, I think they were made by Cal-Sci or one of the major windshield manufacturers. I have pics I'll add later, but they're in good shape and already have 4 velcro circles...

    Gen2 Seats (sold)

    These are my stock seats in great condition. I had the front re-worked by 'Spencer Seat' mods. It has the upgraded 'supracore' open cell foam or whatever he uses. In general the shape is about the same as stock but it is an improvement. Right now I am asking $200 shipped for the seats. SOLD

    2008 OEM rear shock, low mileage take-off

    Well, this has been sitting on a shelf inside my basement for a few years now so I might as well sell it. Came off the bike with 20k miles. Bike had only been ridden one up by a light weight. No leaks, basically perfect shape. Maybe it's worth $200 plus the ride... I dunno? Certainly make...

    FJR off road excursion

    Well not especially proud to share this but it is entertaining. It's my first time leaving the road ever actually in about 90k miles, not that I haven't made mistakes and gone a bit wide before. I had been leading this ride and said I'd get some video footage of the guys with me on a CBR1000RR...

    Opened up modded airbox from a 2008 - open on both sides of filter

    As has been discussed many times around here... call it what you will many forum members have done this. I decided to stick with the original design to keep it quiet and I never messed with fueling, if you have a power commander that would be ideal. IF you don't like it you still have your OEM...

    2008 Dyno Pull

    Saw many other bikes doing pulls and all seemed pretty spot on with what I have seen in magazines. My numbers seem typical but I may be sporting a few extra ponies than the average that I have seen. The third pull is the one that is down a couple hp, probably a little heat soak. I always...

    5.25" Ram Mount Arm

    Pretty standard, the more expensive black aluminum model. Gets your GPS up and over your tank bag if needed. I have a 3" model that did the job fine so I'm sticking with that one, so this is basically new. $15 shipped
