Best cover for my 2004 FJR 1300

Happy days! I am the new proud owner of a 2004 FJR 1300! I am new to this site, and appreciate your guidance and support as I familiarize myself with this extraordinary bike! She's very clean, and I would like to keep her that way. Any thoughts on the best cover available for my machine?

Thanks for the help!

Not Geza Gear.

I paid several hundred dollars for one of their covers made from "Elite Plus Series" fabric. They claim that fabric is suitable for "Extreme Sun
12-15 hrs", and offer a warranty of 10 years on that fabric. At 4 years old, and only intermittent use, my cover started to fall apart. Geza Gear weren't interested - they offered me a small discount on the purchase of a new one.

I currently use a "CoverALL" brand cover. Cheap. Has lasted for 3 years now, used a lot more than the geza gear cover was, and is quite faded. But it is still sturdy and doesn't look like failing anytime soon.

Hope the info helps.

Thank you Doc. I think that's what I'm sporting on my old Honda product. I'll give 'em a look see.

Hobart Australia! I bet there is beautiful riding in those parts. Maybe one day.....

Cheers,

I have had good luck with Dowco covers. Even in the blistering Bakersfield sun, they held up well.

I find the best cover involves the use of shingles .

My bike gets ridden in all conditions, but it's almost always parked indoors. The night it spent outside at a South Carolina hotel recently was the first night its ever spend outside. Made me wish I had a cover when I came out to a bike thoroughly drenched/seat puddled with dew.

These covers from Arostitch are very light and roll up into its own little bag. We have several for the Victory Kingpins and use them to cover the bikes when we stop at the hotel just to keep people from messing with them.

For traveling I use a Nelson Rigg half cover for just those reasons.

Thank you for your input. I'm thinking I might pull the trigger on Yamaha's Factory FJR specific cover, model ABA-2D228-00-BK. It's a few bucks more, but not cost prohibitive through Amazon. I like knowing that it will probably fit like a glove and afford me more than adequate protection. I appreciate your speedy input fella's. I'm grateful to be a part of the forum and for your support.

Thanks for the help!

It really depends if you just want a dust cover for the garage, outdoor carport, living outside or transporting on trailer or in truck. Each criteria would dictate a different cover based on size, durability, pack ability and price. I need a dust cover for the garage so I would not want to invest in custom fit padded cover for trailer.

What are you going to use this for?
