    No, just me extinguishing the thought of telling everyone on the K1600GT thread how awesome the new FJR is but I figured if they wanted to know about that bike, there was already a thread for it. :lol3

    Yabut, the 1600 eats the FJR much like the new GS walks all over the Tenere. Duh.
    I will only ride mine in the dark now for the humiliation of being seen on it.

    19mm is about 3/4"
    Go to any Home Depot or Lowe's and you can get a threaded rod coupler for $2:

    Make sure that you measure the OD. The one I got at Lowes as well as the one I got at Ace Hardware was too small. I understand that The ones that Home Depot sell are the correct 19mm size.

    Matter of fact, I had two of them, William, and loved them.:D

    BTW, I ended up making my own tool out of a bolt with a 19 mm head, plus two nuts jammed together on the other end. None of that fancy smancy store bought stuff for me.

    Be sure to keep your receipt to be able to return the nut when you are done.

    Better yet, wear loose pants with a pocket.:augie
