FJR1300 new user question

Hi All,

i have just bought an FJR1300 used one, and have some question as below:
1) the VIN # and the engine(without gear indicator) say t 2005, but the out side: body, dash, light, dual fan say it 2006 and above(aslo have the grip wamer).
2) i found it have dual regular: one infront of air inlet, one behind the ECU-> is it police version?
thanks a lot if you could help.

Non-US had differing models in some cases.... would need pictures to tell you more. Identifying a police bike might be a little more difficult, but the dual regulators may be a clue... I do not know if they did that for Police, but seems reasonable.

not sure where you are from but i have a police bike a 2005 as well mine only has one regulator police bikes tend to be white in most countries if yours is white you can be certain that it was a cop bike since it is NOT an original factory colour most cop bikes also have an antenna somewhere on the bike here they are placed on the back mine has a trunk instead of a rear seat where the antenna was mounted cops usually also run a voltage meter somewhere on the bike as well as a couple extra switches on the fairings on the pic i attached you might be able to see the orange switch behind the grip warmers

IN Sven's case, we here would call that a Gen1 (last one here 2005 Model Year), while Gen 2 (2006) changed the fairings and a few more things...
What has confused us sometimes also are the fact that some Euro got the FJR first in 2002 (one guy thought he had a 2001), US/Canada got it 2003. Some of Euro had also an extended Gen2, a 2013 that was actually still a Gen2... we think of Gen3 started in 2013. In Gen3 some Euro have configurations we don't have, but with same appearance and three colour choices.

What does your vehicle documentation say..... looks like 2006 bodywork, cannot tell if police, usually seat area had a box like Sven's and there may be other wire harnesses under lower front fairings and maybe an extra switch or two.
You only show one regulator, I assume the other is under the seat tray behind the ECU.... I don't see need for two mofset regulators, don't know what that would accomplish...
Where are you located?

i really doubt that it was a police bike from a quick google i haven't found any Vietnamese fjr cop bikes next to that i don't see a point in running a second regulator usually the cops just run a second battery for their gear radios and lights feeding off a 12v plug
