Well, jack white,
I have the 2014 (the very fastest color) a from he11, initially,,, on the 4th clutch, head bearings changed, broken subframe & abs switch’s and relays. But I love my fjr, fantastic bike ! I also have a lot of antiques (14) that I ride, my favorites are my 76 Goldwing that I bought new which was also a total pos for the first 20yrs until I figured out that the flywheel timing marks were mismarked and now runs great. I also regularly ride my 81bcbx which pairs up similarly to the fjr just different . Variety is the spice of life in my opinion
If you go with a top box make sure you add the Yamaha heavy aluminum rack or the givi sr357 or similar Shad tube rack to protect your subframe,, if you go that route.
I will add that some of the collection is being sold off as it basically just sits which is not good for them but the fjr is the go-to bike and gets the most miles. Your choices of the Russel day long , and the heli-bars will make your fjr much more enjoyable. Have fun & enjoy.
Red 2014A, the fastest color !
Ride more,, worry less !
