2015 FJR A Left front ABS sensor wire support

The ABS sensor wire mounted to the left front wheel is not supported. Off the ABS sensor the wire dangles in the wind. It has a rubber grommet around the wire like it should be mounted into a support bracket on the left fork? This cannot be correct.

I bought this bike a few weeks ago with 8000 miles and change. Never owned a FJR before so not sure how this ABS sensor wire should be mounted near the left front brake caliper. Axle bolt was barely finger tight, 2 pinch bolts were not even finger tight. Yeah, that style of monkey tracks.

Can someone please snap a picture of their bike(2013-2015) so I can see how this wire should be mounted? Or maybe be kind enough to point out what part I need to order on a parts diagram? I've looked on Partszilla's diagrams for ideas but not finding it.

Thank you.

It should be really obvious, unless you are missing the front reflector and bracket. The bracket has a clip for the hose grommet and a wire loop at the bottom.

The previous owner of my '13 tossed both front reflectors and the ABS wire is held with a zip tie around the fork. Yamaha are silly and list reflectors under "ELECTRICAL 2" section and I think just that bracket was like $29.

Many many thanks! I appreciate the heads up where I can find the reflectors as well.

Yupper, my reflectors are MIA. Guess the prior owner would rather have the wire hanging than the reflectors? Who knows.

I love buying used motorized vehicles...

Well, you could make up a wee something bracket to mount on the lower caliper bolt and zip tie the wire to that.

I thought about doing that but decided to bring this part of the bike back to the factory setup. It's my type A personality.

Installed new tires, adjusted suspension settings, pulled driveshaft to grease universal splines, changed rear diff fluid, changed oil/filter, installed a Motorad MV handlebar riser, hardwired GPS, new battery as suggested here solved this bike's cold start issue, synched throttle bodies, cleaned air filter and removed exhaust air charging circuit.

I'm getting there. Nice rainy day projects.

Indeed they are, you've been busy. But I always ask- did you pull the universal joint to lube the splines on the forward end?

I thought about doing that the first time I pulled the front wheel for a tire change - that is, until I looked at the left side side and the ABS sensor.

Time spent looking at motorcycles, even Harleys, is never wasted.

Yoose Gen3 guys must have it tough. I removed the front reflectors by unscrewing them from the brackets. Are yours glued on or what?
