What’s better than an FJR?

What’s better than an FJR?

TWO FJR’s!!
I loved my gen 1 so much that I went out and bought a gen 3!
A 2013 Stone Grey beauty. Which technically IS the fastest color lol

I’m not one who cares for all the modern tech but I do think Yamaha did a decently balanced job on this one with the upgrades.

At first the menu seemed overwhelming but after 10 minutes I got everything set to my liking and it’s becoming very intuitive.

I’ve put throttle locks on every bike I’ve ever owned so for me the cruise control is wonderful to have. Although I wish there was a cancel button without pulling the brakes or completely turning it off. Like most cars have. If I’ve missed it someone clue me in.

Anyway, I’m ready to start racking up some miles. This one is young, only 65,000 miles on it. My gen1 is at 255,000+!

I will post a pic as soon as I figure out how.

Any other things to know about the gen3 ?

I have owned several bikes with Cruise control and none of them has a cancel button. There have been threads on this. There are a variety of preferences on how to cancel it. My preferred method is to give a quick pull on the clutch lever.

You can also slam the throttle closed to disengage cruise control.

As with automobile you can drive faster than CC by just opening the throttle, without disengaging.

On Subaru a tap on the CC power button disengages without turning it off or clearing memory. Doesn't work on FJR.

Like jjscsix I just give a light squeeze on the clutch lever (you dont have to pull it all the way in), much smoother disengagement than hitting the button or squeezing the front brake.

I prefer using the throttle to disengage. It's just a slight roll forward.

Yep. The throttle doesn’t move when you’re in cruise. So it’s the slightest roll forward on the right grip and that signals the cc to disengage.

No commercials. No dictators.

I find it a fun challenge to attempt to match the throttle position when disengaging the cruise. Rotate the throttle tube to where I think it should be and then either flick the brake lever just enough to activate the switch and not the brakes, or flick the clutch lever in the same manor.
I attempt it for either constant speed or deceleration or acceleration.

I tend to use a very light touch on the front brake to turn off CC. Would like a cancel button but not a big deal.

I sometimes use the “CC on” button as a CC cancel (circled in blue). I mean, it does alternate between off and on...
