New bike in mind?

Maybe save a whack of money and try new suspension instead. I've given up on the FJ-07 ever getting here, and just had a set of Hyperpro shocks installed on my BMW (plural because mine is a Telelever model) by the smart guys at Accelerated Technologies. I rode the same roads home as I did getting there. Unfcking believable difference. No kidding, a road where the bike felt skittish at 80 km/h in a 60 zone was rock-solid at 115. I couldn't believe the speedo when I looked down; it felt a lot slower than I'd gone coming in. Basically it's a brand-new bike for less than two grand.

Something to consider, anyway.
