New to the FJR

Purchased a 2007 a couple of weeks ago. So far I have removed the trailer hitch and trailer wiring; changed the air filter, oil, oil filter and final drive fluid. Going on a 3 or 4 hour ride tomorrow. Glad to have found this forum.

Dennis, would also suggest a flush and bleed of the clutch & brake systems, highly recommended to keep your abs healthy and shifting smooth. Also would suggest a check & retorque of the steering head bearings at some point, lube/inspect all the pivot points like the levers & shifter & brakes. Things to do on a cold or wet day with a few adult beverages handy.

Welcome!

Coolant is probably due too.

Always best to change all fluids on freshly purchased used motorcycle.

Thanks. Great suggestions. Speed bleeders and fresh DOT4 are next on the list.
