My buddy has a 1st gen FZ1 that is the reason I bought my fjr, quite an incredible bike and seems to do everything well... to bad that Yamaha quit making them, great bike.
As far as things to check on your newly acquired Fjr, as yammieboy suggested above check the headbearing torque and I would also go over the bike and check torques. I would also flush the clutch and brake system along with a abs activation. Fresh oil in the engine and the differential and I think you’re good for awhile.
On the “dry” clutch thing, if when You’re going down the road and pull the clutch in to shift, watch the tach and if the rpm drops relatively quickly then the clutch is good, if it hangs for some time and shifts hard then it will probably need cleaning and a soak, it’s probably fine though.
Red 2014A, the fastest color !
