    Hate to admit it but twice for me too. Both times sitting still. The difference was the frame sliders. First time, $450 worth of plastic damage. Installed frame sliders and narry a scratch on the second drop. On the topic of weight, my front end seem to feel heavier after a new front tire has about 3,000 miles on it. Requires more steering input.

    I usually run a larger windshield on the bike. I thought the stocker was near worthless so I cut it down. It only takes a few minutes to change so I now have an option if I'm going to ride on a very hot day. Compared to stock, the wind around my helmet is much cleaner with this setup.

    Yeah, I also run a cut down summer shield. It works but am thinking of cutting another 2" off it.

    You just talked me into frame sliders. Thanks. I never fixed mine, but to do it right would be a lot of money. Small scuffs on a lot of plastic, and a dent in the tank that you can't really see unless you are looking for it.

    This high quality set of OES frame sliders
    fits the 2006-2012 Yamaha FJR-1300
    (both A & AE models). These sliders have
    high impact strength and use 6061T6
    aluminum inserts which are pressed in.
    Without the inserts, the engine mount
    screws would need to be tightened on a
    regular basis. High strength, rust-resistant
    mounting screws are included with this
    set. Absolutely no fairing modifications
    are required to install. Complete
    instructions are available on this site. This
    set can be installed in under ten minutes.

    you can replace the side you
    need by ordering here. Side

    First thing I did when I picked up my '07 this year was those exact frame sliders. One of the easiest installs ever and look really good as well.

    By any chance has someone put regular car motor oil into your bike? Most automotive motor oils have additives that will cause excessive slipping when used with motorcycle wet clutches. The AE computer goes nuts if there is excessive clutch slip.

    Are you getting an error code on the instrument panel?

    No error code. Is probable that someone put car oil. Next time I will change the oil by my self as usual!

    I guess I'm an inch too tall. Just replaced my stock windshield with a Cee Baileys +4" and the result is a much quieter ride when it's all the way up, with almost no roar/buffeting. But if I duck just one inch, I find myself in a completely quiet pocket of still air. One inch!!! Maybe I should slouch all the time.

    Nonetheless, I highly recommend the Cee Baileys windshield. The install was very easy; it took me maybe 10 minutes. On those long days on the interstate, I'm sure the quieter windshield will much improve my riding experience.

    I ain't all that smart, but don't the European/UK versions of the FJR come with different paint than the US versions?

    Yes, always have. Not sure about Y's reasoning on that.

    I'd be curious to know Yamaha's reasons, also. Not that I'm complaining... but a couple of the European colors are gorgeous!
