My 06' has had the battery cover off maybe 3 times since 06. Once to install the tender pigtail, once to run fuzeblock lines under the seat, and once to replace the weak OEM battery (last year).
3 times in 8 years..... not a big issue. And never blown a fuse. Not saying it couldn't happen...... but the FJR is not known as being hard on fuses (unless farkles are poorly installed).
Just sayin'..... It is what it is...... and to me, it is a great machine. Pehaps not perfect...... but we have the Germans for that kind of bike.... right? LOL
