Maintenance Counters????

OK, I must be having a bad day (again). I am preforming some simple services on my '14 FJR like oil change and rear gear fluid, when I see in the owners manual on page 4-16 something called "the Maintenance Counters" There are three. Oil, Free-1 and Free-2. I havent gone into the menu yet as I am taking a break from the terrible heat but what the heck are these?????????????
Is there some warning that comes on the MFD is certain milages are exceeded???? Maybe I am missing a description in the manual, the owners manual, and on the web.

No "warnings".


These are hidden in the sub menu. They are essentially the same as you writing down your mileage when you change the oil, the tires or whatever. Really just a trip meter.


To access this:
1. Turn the key on. Bike can be running or not.
2. Squeeze and HOLD the menu trigger on the front side of the controls until you see the information screen switch to its submenu.
3. Use the rocker switch on top of the control pod to scroll down to "Maintenance", squeeze the trigger quickly.


This is also where you customize things like the grip heater settings, the suspension settings, etc.

OK, thanks! Glad to know no warnings are going to appear suddenly along with screaming sirens!

You have a '14 you said? No screaming sirens for you. The '14s are notoriously slow, the cops don't need sirens.

I use the "Maintenance Counters" all the time. First one for oil, second and third for front/rear tire mileage. These are the three most needed maintenance mileage figures for me.

I think the owners manual was severely edited (to remove "good to know" stuff) in hopes to entice us all to go buy the shop manual.

Not sure why you feel that way. In the case of these Maintenance Counters, the procedure is pretty clearly shown in the owner's manual.

Redfish, totally agree, I think the owners manual is pretty good at explaining things, if fact I think itís better organized than the service manual is which has pretty much everything you need to know in it just very poorly organized in my opinion.

The only real complaint I have with the owners manual is that they should have posted a very large warning at the front about the 14ís being so darn light speed fast, you know being the very fastest color and all

Agreed, Steve. The FSM needs a good index.

Time spent looking at motorcycles, even Harleys, is never wasted.
