    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.

    Put on my Rallye Raid screen and a 16t sprocket.

    Better wind flow and no more buffeting. Bikes getting juuuust about perfect.

    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
    excellent !

    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

    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?

    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!
