Small world - Was at Scuderia last weekend and almost bought this:
Found a long funnel and did the oil without really removing the crash bars or tank. Not too messy and took about 40 minutes..yes, yes, I need the damn drain hose mod next.!
In SF one gallon of Motorex is $71 plus tax!!!! They should pay you to recycle this oil.

New LED's, painted Screen, and installed low fender kit.
WOW most amazing mods ever
I had the FCRs for 2 years and loved the performance . I built a carbon Fiber cold air intake box to control the noise and make it offroadable but I couldnt deal with the no choke so I went back tot he CVs
very interested in how this went
I would definitly go with FCRs again if I could do this
heres the FCR cold air intake box I made from heat resistant phenolc resin like is used on a heat sheild
if I had a choke I would still be running this . It even had a rain baffle at the front where the air comes in
it put out a nice resonant sound like a ducati , had a vacuum hum like a big V8 while revving under load
loved it just could live without a choke
Finalized the livery design with Crispy...
Just waiting for the final 3D mock-up for sign-off. Then off to print it goes!
... And took delivery of the first wave of bolt-ons:
All I need now is the flippin' bike!
Ha! Sure is!
I always say, motorcycles make the world seem a bigger place, but the bike community / industry is definitely something of a village.
Are you still looking for a different bike or will you be coming back for that one?
It's been a busy week and I am looking forward to the weekend. A wave of shipments arrived and I've spent more time with the UPS driver than my kids this week...
New arrivals (pics to follow after install)
- CJ Designs Tail Rack
- Rotopax 1 gal fuel and H2O cans
- New Pelican 1400
- Wolfman Expedition Dry Bags
- 690 Enduro Fender and 2010 690 SMC fork protectors (supposed to be a direct bolt on says this guy...we'll see)
Report back, ok?
Will do. I'll post pics of the install too.
Am curious about the FCR choke ( enrichiner) install, I use two FCR 35's on a Norton and this would make warming up very nice. I think that your enrichener install would be best with a cable operated by the set taken off the CVs. Because there is not an easy way to make extension rods easily reachable ( operate able ) through the air box and fuel tank area. I think you are on to something ! Thanks for the idea.
I was bored, bought some cheap hardware and found a way to mount my snowboard on my bike! Now I can combine 3 of my favorite activities in one day, snowboarding, riding and drinking!
Needs a wind tunnel test for fine tuning
