Got on my bike after about two weeks of installing speedbleeders. Rear brake seems to be spongy, Think I need to bleed it (them) again? Any tips? Thanks.
Judgedellta,

Check the manual, but I believe your FJR has linked brakes. If so, you will need to bleed the correct front caliper first, then the rear. You should cycle the ABS system, too.

It will help if the brake pedal is free (pivot point clean and lubricated). It will also help if you allow the brake pedal to snap upwards after each press (just side-step the pedal). This trick will move more brake fluid than just letting the brake pedal rise as your foot rises.
