I was actually admin on cbrforum for years. The newer ccts are way less prone to failure ('93+, I believe), but I know of a couple older ones that failed. They all seem to clack a bit cold. But you're right..... skipping teeth would be a death sentence, imo. Maybe not when I was younger, but these days I'm probably not splitting a 25yo bike and definitely not paying someone to do it.
Right now I have it torn apart because the idle cable broke. Just another pain in my butt, and a lot of the reason I wanted this "modern" fjr.

That's the one.
And I agree.

Great bike the 1kf, have had a few and only sold my 97 10k mile one last week that Iíve had for 16 years - probably guess the reason for sale Member for many years on cbrforum too.
Bought a blackbird to replace the 1kf about 10years back but the riding position didnít suit so took an fjr for a test ride and rest is history.

I still keep in touch with several people from that forum. Henry designed a pretty cool cct, too, if you remember him?
I actually took a ride down to Tennessee with 4 of the USA guys, too.
I have a 95 that I bought in 05. Been a great bike for the last 40k miles. Only left me sitting twice. Reg/rec both times. Second one actually warped the plastics it got so hot. I figured I had stator problems, but no. A Rick's electrics r/r fixed it right up.
I learned never to skimp on that particular part. Haha
We didn't even get the 97-99 over here. That sounds like a gem. My buddy in Melbourne just upgraded his 91 to a 99. Great bikes the old hurricanes.
I remember when they came out. There was a motorcycle repair shop up the country road from me, and I'd ride my 1980 Honda XR80 up there to check out the cool bikes (I was just a kid).
An 87 hurricane pulled in one day and I was in love (at like 10yrs old). I chased him on my dirt bike and ended up wrecking in to a corn field. Haha....
But I finally got one. And she's been a good bike. I looked hard at the blackbirds before settling on the FJR.
