The FJR isn't perfect either when it comes to recalls and TSB's. Just Sayin'.

Yup. My ABS light likes to flash every now and then. And many have had this going back many years.

Russ, agreed ! But I’ll add that once I got past all the initial problems with mine it has been rock solid and pure enjoyment ! It’s been just calling to me since this back thing flared up earlier this year so I haven’t ridden it much at all. Been thinking of selling it but the thought of letting my “fastest color red” 14a go just makes me cringe. May eventually happen but being able to just look at it and give her a little pat on the tank just makes me smile. Guess we’re in wait & see mode. It is a “great” bike ! Not perfect, but pretty good !

No TSB or recall that I'm aware of. Since 2013, System more sensitive due to front signal being used for more functions like cruise control and TCS. Sensors, clutch and brake switches have to be in top operating condition.

I find a quick couple squeezes of the front brake and a tap on the rear will stop that.

Mine required replacing the front switch’s & relays to fix it, Yamaha also Replaced the rear switch and relay because they felt it was marginal even though the front switch/relay was the problem. I did all the suggestions from the guy’s here (thanks guy’s !) including cleaning the wheel sensors where my rear was terribly corroded and this did help a smidge but didn’t fix it, also did the complete brake bleed and exercise the abs module, but ultimately replacing the switch’s is the only thing that fixed it completely.

In retrospect I probably should’ve cleaned the switch’s but the bike was still under the YES warranty so at that point I let Yamaha pick up the tab. Been perfect since. It definitely affects the cruise control Operation. Also check your rear brake pedal (mine worked but was dry) and the front lever for smooth operation and complete release. Hope this helps !

Off topic...but not! Please accept this in the spirit of my intention ❣️

I am wary about accepting/giving 'medical' advice to/from strangers - but I cannot resist - I have to tell you about some success I've had with a product that I've had injected by my Naturopathic MD. It used to be called 'Spondylose' and is now known as 'Allya' (not to be mistaken for the condition called Spondylosis which why the name change I'm sure). I suffer from Arthritis - some of it from work-related inflammation (too much grinding over 35 years Boilermaker career) in my elbows and base of my right thumb. I received 10 injections in my right elbow over about 6 years and 7 in my left over the same period, the last injection over 10 years ago. Haven't had a problem since. The pain was so bad I could not lift a coffee cup to drink it - 15 minutes after an injection - perfect, not a hint of discomfort!

This product is made in Germany and has only natural ingredients. NO CORTISONE! It's made for connective-tissue repair and not only reduces inflammation and pain, but has components that rebuild damage. Really a miracle cure for me. I can PM you a one-page blurb that I got from the Naturopath explaining what it contains exactly and what it's for. Recommended for all joints, back, anywhere there is connective tissue issues. Injected with a very fine needle, and my Naturopath mixed in a bit of Novocaine to cut the immediate burning that some patients experience. I haven't had an injection since 5 years ago (last one at the base of my right thumb) and I'm pretty pain free for 67yo!

To be clear - I have NO PERSONAL vested interest in this product - consider this under the heading of 'public service'. btw - the small town I lived in had 3 different Naturopaths that all had Spondylose available as a walk-in service. $45 for all the injections you wanted!


Update: from the most recent ND that I had the great pleasure of knowing, all about 'Allya': http://www.vitalpathhealth.com/content/view/49/31/

Rubber down, shiny up! And remember, not everyone out there is trying to harm you!

Sure, "initial problems then rock solid", I get it. Then there's those of us who played the waiting game, knowing it was just a matter of time until the ground spider bit. 10 yrs I waited and did preventative maintenance. I'm just saying that degrading posts like this slamming BMW or any other mfr for fixing things is exactly what Yamaha has done with the FJR. I guess some folks don't remember the replacement for instantaneous fuel consumption readout. Or the ECU replacement for altitude sickness. Or the ignition switch replacement b/c of crappy workmanship. Or the ground system recall and fix that just moved the problem elsewhere. Or just how many people (you included, yes?) that had clutch problems solved with a clutch soak. And the reasons the spring unwind procedure exists, and the Barbarian mod, and even Ivan's flash. You know, to solve all those nonexistent problems on "rock solid", "perfect", "bullet-proof" bikes.

IMHO some folks need to pull their heads of the the sand sometimes. I'm not saying the FJR is a bad purchase, far from it. But I've had better luck with other products.
