Excellent thread, thanks for doing this.
Yeah that tail light has got to go. Still researching options, what with needing to include a license plate light and bracket. I dunno yet.I can't believe that this bike was $100 and that some people were saying to scrap it.
I also can't believe the size of that tail light!
Not sure if you want to post, but when it's all said and done, I'd be interested in knowing what the final tally is.

Did you slacken them all the way out at the bottom?So how would one go about sourcing slightly longer clutch and throttle cables? Or should I just order OEM replacements and try routing them differently?
LSL only provided a longer brake line, and they say the original throttle/clutch cables should be okay. Only thing I was able to reconnect is the choke cable.
My first bike was an '83 FJ900. Had a lot of fun on it, went on a lot of adventures...even if it did cost me 9 arms and 4 legs to insure back then.Thanks man - the FJ's a good city bike, so narrow and nimble. I had to replace just about every cosmetic bit on it - its previous owner wouldn't recognize it today. Only the fairing is original to the bike, and I'm still looking for a cleaner one.
