Well Phat, welcome to my world ! On the 4th clutch, head bearings at 7100mi, broken rear sub-frame, ABS switch’s & relay’s. Many moments of looking for something to replace my 14a with, my wife was really pushing to get rid of it but my dealer was pretty good in making things right (better than yamaha was) add-in that nothing else really appealed to me as much as my fjr.
Anyway, now a lot of miles later my fjr appears to be the reliable bike that the reputation advertises, thanks largely To a great dealer ! No thanks to mother yamaha who could really give a shite less about my problems, but I love my bike now, in spite of the warts.
So the morale here is give the dealer a chance, check on them regularly and once you get it back give it a chance. And if like me you’ve done any shopping around there’s not much to fill the same niche as a the fjr, as cheaply, and as well. Hang in there !
Red 2014A, the fastest color !
Ride more,, worry less !
