It was 2 years ago today that I took delivery of my 2018 A FJR affectionately known as "Big Blue"
So far it has been exemplary. No issues (knock on wood) other than me dropping it while turning around in a gravel parking lot of my first out of state trip, but that wasn't the bike's fault.
29, 350 miles as of last night's ride.
Been ridden almost daily in all 24 months. Ridden from single digits to 100 degrees. Sun, rain, snow, wind, hail you name it, and it's been ridden in it.(except ice, I won't ride if there is ice)
Has had 8 oil & filter changes (Yamalube 10w40 and Yamaha filter)
4 rear end oil changes (Yamalube Shaft Drive Oil 80w90)
Tires at 6,342 13,642 and 23,401 (Michelin PR4GT's)
Got Kurvy Gurl 83 degree valve stems at first tire change
added Soupy Lowering links @ 15,400 (lowered 1/2" in rear and 3/8" in front
and got steering head bearings checked and tightened at 3,100 miles
Goes in this Friday to have clutch and brake fluids changed, air cleaner, spark plugs and brake pads if it needs them. Lube all the pivot points and maybe change out the coolant, (haven't decided on that yet ... recommendation?)
Pics from yesterday's ride
At 70 yo I'm guessing this will be my last "big" bike. Hope it will run over 100K trouble free miles like my ST 1300 did.
So far, so good
