I broke my right thumb, at twelve years of age, duck hunting, shooting a right-handed shotgun in my usual left-handed stance. The bolt handle shattered my right thumb. At the time, they had no choice but to let it heal, eschewed. Fifty years of motocross and street riding reached a point of severe arthritic pain for me. They cleaned up the metacarpal bazal joint, pinned it, and removed the trapezium bone as well as part of the trapezoid bone (Trapeziectomy). They removed part of my flexor carpi radialis tendon and used it to suspend my thum as well as connecting it to my trapezoid bone. I will no longer have trigger finger, and will have decent range of motion. The pain is gone, but getting my range of motion and thumb strength back is going to take several months. I figured my SP would show up before I was able to ride again, but that is still looking bleak with no ETA in sight.Holy you know what
what did they do cause I have bad thumbs too going back 40 plus years
They are more like 80/20 tires - but yes - I've still got about 50% left on the front so I'm replacing the rear only with a matching shinko 705. I've been happy with them and I've gotten nearly 8k out of the rear and it wasn't completely bald yet like the last 3 rears that only lasted 3k.Still running 50/50 type tires for dirt and street?
My heels are always banging in to the passenger pegs. I didn't know about the FJ pegs. Which way do they move the pegs? Straight down, or...?Front wheel got the same treatment, a little touch up and some red rim tape.

Installed some tracer/fj passenger pedal brackets so my 10yr old isn't as cramped when he rides with me.

The cage is a higdoniin gen 1 trail cage. The exhaust has to fit tight to the bike or it won't fit.My heels are always banging in to the passenger pegs. I didn't know about the FJ pegs. Which way do they move the pegs? Straight down, or...?
Also, what cage is that? I dig it.
Don't sweat the oil.Also Im 50/50 as I think I might of used a 1/4 quart of left over REG oil in there vs all Proper MC Oil......
I didnt drain it all back out like I should have and redid it. Im hoping only being a little and a left over quart I had does anything terrible? I also cleaned her up..........and made her feel pretty
That's super helpful. I didn't intend for you to go way out of your way to show the differences, but I appreciate it! Thank you.The cage is a higdoniin gen 1 trail cage. The exhaust has to fit tight to the bike or it won't fit.
Here is my post about it.
The fj brackets move the pegs down, out and a little bit forward. Here are a couple comparison photos with the stock brackets.
Here with the stock bracket 'behind' the FJ one you can see the 'down and out' movement.

And here it is 'in front' of the FJ bracket where you can see the down and forward changes.

With the passenger pegs folded out I can put my toes on the rider pegs and my heals on the passenger pegs, sort of like floor boards. I wear a size 13 hiking boot when I ride. I haven't noticed that these get 'in the way' when I'm riding by myself but its only been a few days....
You are very welcome, I still had the old brackets laying in the garage so it took all of about 10 seconds to hold it up and snap a picture while I was on my way out to work. Like you I expected that it would move the passenger pegs 'back' but they actually move 'forward' just a bit.That's super helpful. I didn't intend for you to go way out of your way to show the differences, but I appreciate it! Thank you.
