    Recommendations for riding boots - office casual

    So by implication, Axo Striker boots provide good riding protection?

    Theses just came up on RevZilla that look decent for daily wear with CE protection. Plus I like Alpinestar. https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/alpinestars-sektor-shoes?utm_source=Sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Win-Back Disengaged

    A Technical Question to Ponder

    Sounds to me like you discovered an inside trick to win more races! You should get rid of the oil cooler completely for a reduction in weight and then put her back together and run a few more passes to set some new personal best times ! More trophy's - more wins with your new secret formula!

    They come off and go back on easy peasy with a small dab of RTV Silicone. I have had my aluminum frame plugs off and back on a couple times. I was told to be careful about corrosion behind the frame plugs but it has not been a problem in over 10 years now.

    They are a decent fit but yes a dab of silicone has kept my set in place for over 10 years now.

    Yea they were selling like hotcakes back in the day! Back then I worked for a large manufacturing plant that gave me free access to CNC machines and robotics. No setup fees or program writing costs plus the aluminum material was very cheap. I made up and sold over 500 pairs of them but the last run of 50 pairs took me over a year to sell out. I no longer work for that company so they are no more 😞 I also made up some cool aluminum frame plugs that also matched the dimpled fairing bolts. I still have a few of them left over except that as a set of four I only have 3 ! I am missing the smaller plug on the left side. If someone has them installed like I do on my bird and loose one, if it is not the left small one I have replacements for the other three! Here is a pic of the partial set of three.

    You don't "need" either. The shrooms were designed to protect the side plastics in the case of a tip over or dropped bike while stopped or moving very slowly such as turning in a parking lot. The sliders are designed to protect the plastics in a low side crash. Personally i haven't seen much of an advantage to having frame sliders in the event of a "street" crash. On the track were bike often just slide to a stop is where they are most effective. The Shrooms only provide protection if the bike tips over when stopped or at, pushing the bike speeds. Most track bike have sliders and so it is cool to have them on your street bike. In my experience I have always slipped and dropped my bike at least once trying to back up or stopping on uneven surfaces. I have owned my new FJR over a year now and did drop it once turning around at a park with a spot of soft sand that washed the front tire out from under me! Most people did not want to drill holes in factory plastics for the frame sliders. As a result Jaws created the "Shrooms". Just my opinion.

    I use to carry some very cool looking aluminum shrooms that were milled to the same shape and design of the dimpled fairing bolts. Sold out many years ago and never had any more made up due to lack of demand.

    You replace the top fairing bolt on the lower plastics with the included hardware on the Shroom.

    There should be a little lip cut in that aligns the spacer. Add a small dab of silicone.

    Thanks, but I knew that. It has been down for well over a month. I need to make the call and stop paying $39.99 a month for the ecommerce store and just keep it as a static site. I don't sell enough every month to justify the monthly cost. I sell most everything on Amazon now. Doing well over $1000 per month now on Amazon. For BlackBird items I deal with people via PM, email and Paypal invoices and will be adding Google pay as well and dumping the ecommerce expense.
