    No Audible for Escort Ix Radar with Garmin XT, Samsung Phone and Sena 20s Mash Up

    I'll attempt to describe the setup but I am electro-technically challenged.... I can't get the audible from the Ix into the Sena Headset. Perhaps synching (4) Bluetooth devices is too much? I can hear the Phone Audio and Phone Apps and XT. The Ix is paired with the Escort app on the phone, were...

    Elevated Idle, periodic

    Anyone have this happen?... One a 1hr run into the hills (for pie), I noticed that the engine braking was minimal. Pulled the clutch lever and noticed that the idle was at +2500. I eventually stopped to see what was amiss, gave it a few quick blips and it went back to a normal 1000. The 2013 is...

    Battery Stress Test

    Unfortunately, the FJR Battery died in the parking lot of my office... on a Friday afternoon. No chance to leave it until the morning, (when I could probably get it going). I was able to get a trickle charger to the bike (I live nearby) and it started red and went to green, so great. But one...

    Corbin Seat and HeliBar

    I'm 6'2 and have had a very tuned '04 for many years/many miles. I moved to a '13 Gen 3. Where the Rocky Mayer Seat on the '04 was very neutral to my body, the Corbin on the '13 ... not so much. I think it might be that the '13 has the Helibar Accessory pushing my neutral position forward into...

    Zumo XT Review

    I think a few of you will be moving to the XT.... for the screen brightness alone. It's well built like the 595 and has a larger screen. Out of the Box, powered up on battery and took the unit into the direct sun, wearing a gray tee-shirt and viewed from all angles... it's as bright as the 595...

    High River Alberta to Kelowna

    If one was in a hurry, is it best to get from High River Alberta to Kelowna BC going (a) north thru Golden/Revelstoke or (b) south thru Cranbrook/Grand Forks? They're both twisty but I have no 1st hand knowledge about those routes.... I know, two seasons in BC: Winter and Road Repairs...

    Bluetooth EarBuds

    Any success with BT EarBuds that are smallish and synch OK with a Zumo 590 & 20S? Considering changing from cabled EarBuds and not needing to tangle with cables and the D-Strap. In-Helmet Speakers do not cancel enough outside noise for my taste.

    '13 stock Dogbone length?

    As you might figure, I am making some suspension/height adjustments or more accurately.... the Corbin seat is too low for me and I can't go far enough in a day on the stock seat. So I need to raise the Corbin ride height. Corbin fits only in at the low seat setting. Question: the dogbones on...

    '04 Penske 8983 Rear Shock installed on a '13?

    The Penske site distinguishes between an 8983 for an FJR '01-05 then another model number for '06-12. Nothing for '13 and newer. I have an 8983 on my '04....... anyone know if it will fit onto a '13?

    Can a Smuggler be installed on a 2013 with a Stiffy Kit? Hard to tell from Garauld's pics just how much the Smuggler footprint is impacted.
