2005 fjr

I needed an inexpensive 2nd bike and found this gem with only 37000kms.
Finding it very hot on hot days but am looking forward to the fall. The heat will be welcome in northern Ontario.
After looking on here it looks like this problem is fixed in 08 models fairings.
Darn. Guess I need another bike!

Can anymore summurize the gen’s and the pros and cons of each?

Secondly, I seem to be having trouble with shifting into second with power. Unless I ease it into gear, it seems to slip, then thunk! I thought it might be wheel spin but it’s not.

Best bike ever!
