Hey All, Got my brand new AE last September and just finished getting it ready for this year. It was great stock but needed lots of things IMO. I put a Penske on the rear, Rich's saddle, Cee Bailey +0+2+MRA Vario, and lots of other cool stuff. I just finished reading this entire thread and one thing I don't see mention a whole lot is how important it is to sync the throttle plates. Not the throttle body sync per the manual, but actually adjusting the plates. Lots of info of FJRforum. When I got mine, I was disgusted with the vibration, at 75 it was the worst I-4 I've owned, I actually thought about selling it. After the job, it's now as smooth as my old blackbird at 75 and smoother at speeds below that. I think this is why you see so many people mention vibration and get flamed for it...some of them really do vibrate, alot. Anyway, if you are thinking about getting an FJR and your gut tells you it might be the bike for you, DO IT. They aren't for everyone but the guy claiming the RT is superior in every way was good for a laugh. RT has it's strengths but it's way too expensive for me and that boxer is just plain sillly. Felt like a lawnmower off idle.
