    Is it just me or has the FJR forum had an upgrade? Seem like you don't have to wait anymore. The board is reacting much faster on my end. Dave

    Givi V47 case Key issues

    Is anyone having issues with their Givi Key trying to open the case. I spent 5 minutes a couple of days ago trying to open the case and the Key wouldn't turn. Yesterday I tried again and it snapped a little bit but turned and I could open the case. This seems to be an on and off again problem. I...

    Will trade, any takers

    I have no association with this deal. Just thought I would through it out there. If the 2008 was in running order I would jump on it. Dave

    Went hiking Sunday with the Son and his girlfreind

    So we were walking along the gravel fire roads which run along the two lane country road. This is a section of curvy road well known for motorcycling. The whole time we hiked along the road it was Harley after Harley blapping the f'n pipes when they saw us. Reminded me of when we were kids with...

    backrest for the wife

    Well I finished another project for the 2015 FJR steamship. I needed another solution for the wife for her comfort. Yeh, she's spoiled. Truth is this keeps me from buying a stratoliner gold wing. Any way my yankee frugleness kicked in and this was all made from stuff I have around. Stainless...

    Rear oil vent replacement

    Not sure if anyone has done this. So today was maintenance day for the 2008 FJR. Started out just to replace both front and rear tires. While I had the rear tire off I decided to check the spline. I haven't looked at it since it was new when I put Moly D on it. That was about 90K miles ago...

    Trouble down shifting on the Gen3

    So I thought lubing up the linkage on the shifter might have been the issue. Seems as though it isn't going to be the cure. I have just over 1K miles on my Gen3 that I bought last fall. I mostly still ride my Gen2 bike. I am still farkling the Gen3 so I don't take it out that much. I did a ride...

    Oil light staying on?

    I changed the oil last night in the bike. Took it to the post office about 3 1/2 miles up the road. About half way there I noticed the oil light was on. Bike was running and shifting fine. I pulled over and looked at the sight level and on the side stand it was on the low limit. If I stand the...

    Was there a forum outage today? I could not login for a couple of hours this afternoon. They could be playing games on my end also. They have blocked several sights in the last few months. Now they may be blocking the forum at work. I won't know until tomorrow when I try and login again. Dave

I have 30K on the truck and it is a 2009. I change the oil as required. Seems as the though the cam sensor has now shit the bed and it is...

    Shift linkage lubrication

    Shame me if this has been brought up already. Since I don't remember ever seeing it, here goes. So today I removed the Gen3 side plate that the shift linkage is hidden behind. Now that I think of it maybe I should have put a hole through the side plate so I don't have to pull it apart again...

    Ambiant tempurature display?

    Can it be adjusted? Mine is always 2 or 3 degrees higher than actual. Yeh, I could do the math but would rather have it read the right temp. I am pretty sure it happens on both bikes. I haven't confirmed it yet on the 15 but I am pretty sure it's the same. Dave

    So I left the humble abode at 2:15AM on the way to Latrobe PA. I stopped in Latrobe for about 45 minutes and made the return trip back home in 11 hrs and 45 minutes. 1,142 miles start to finish. It's going to a rough day today but worth it. Oh I forgot, I was in the cage with a trailer in tow.

    Split: Yet More Off-Topic About Tires

    I am currently on my second season on the same set of PR2's. There is still plenty of life left to them. I don't plan on changing them until late fall or next year. These tires are phenomenal for wear here in flatistan. I am not keeping up with the mileage this year as last year due to plaguing...
