    Re-introduction + New Bike Day + Pics/Dyno

    Hi,

    I was informed this was the best spot to post my bike info up and since I took a 2 year break from the forum, not a bad idea to say Hi to everyone once again I guess.

    Copy/paste from the previous post in the "What did you do to your bike today?" thread:



    Purchased her in November, slapped on some Dunlop Q3's (sold the junker OEM tires), then she took a road trip to get a reflash, full Hindle CF exhaust, Quickshifter, and dyno break in/oil change.

    Then it was off to KFG Racing for a Penske and GP Suspension FPK on the front end.

    Got her home, installed the Woodcraft frame sliders, swingarm spools and Puig screen. Black adjustable clutch & brake levers are on order but apparently are taking the slow boat from China.

    A buddy who's an electrical engineer then took over and installed the TST Industries Fender Eliminator Kit, LED Plate light, rear pod signals, front flush mount signals, and so far the left bar end mirror - not sure if I'm gonna use the right bar end mirror - game time decision this Spring I guess.

    Here's a couple photo's and the dyno chart:

    Happy with these results - can't wait to rider her this Spring:

    Thanks! Sounds great, I have no clue yet about the ride quality unfortunately...

    3 months away from riding season in these parts.

    Other than all the ones I saw last season, our old part time sales guy, Rob ( he's on here sometimes ) and my friend Travis might be getting another one. Plus another friend of mine got the FJ-09 last season.
