Common FJR final drive noise eh? Interesting. I honestly have never heard it on mine in 14 mos/18,000 miles. Maybe because I came off 10 years on a Honda ST 1300 which sounds like a giant whining...

Interesting when did this change? The Yamalube FD oil I bought a few months ago looks JUST like that... only mine says 80-90 wt on it and does NOT say specifically for FJR 1300s and V max's on it.

As I read it he has a buzzing in a body part that occurs only at that rpm when the harmonic vibrations are just right. Maybe a piece of the fairing where a push pin has come loose. If it happened in...

Once again I appear to be the only salmon swimming down stream.

I agree, pressing a few extra buttons isn't that hard, but it shouldn't be necessary. I'm sure they could make how you want to...
