New owner of a '06 FJR

Hello all!
This past weekend, I bought a standard Blue 2006 FJR with around 22k miles on it.
Done about 200 miles on it and so far, Loving it!!!

Have spent a couple of weeks lurking around here, trying to learn about this bike and it has been extremely helpful. Thank you everyone for your threads and posts.

Congrats! The FJR is a wonderful bike. I had an '05 a few years back, but sold it because of my inexperience. But I came back. It's just such a great bike. You're gonna love it more all the time!

Sounds like the one I just sold to get a 2013. If I still had my '06, I'd be perfectly happy with it, I owned it longer than any motorcycle I've ever had, except one.

Great bike, you'll really enjoy it.

Congrats Andy. 2 things about Gen 2's, some have spider ground issues, and 07 (I just 07s) have ignition switch solder issues.

There have been some good threads about spider grounds.

Or call me if you prefer. 703 280-7164 M-F

Thanks everyone, for the welcome and the "watch out for" advise.
I did notice the "Instantaneous MPG" was stuck at the 17MPG limit. Having read about the recall issued for it, I called a local dealer in Middletown.
Upon checking my VIN, he found the previous and only owner had gotten the Ignition Switch, and the Wiring harness (spider) replaced. However, 3 other replacements have not been done - The Instrument box, for 17MPG, the ECU for 300ft altitude change, and the rear top case plate.
The dealer has ordered the items and will let me know when they are in

Does anyone here have experience with Cincinnati area dealers, and if so, any recommendations on who to use, or any warnings on which ones to avoid?

Thanks!
