Hello all,

I'm new to this forum and considering a 06 FJR. I've read and heard numerous reports of the FJR enigine tick. It seems to be an exhaust valve/guide issue. Is this an on-going problem with the later models or has Yamaha incorporated a fix. It also appears that Yamaha is taking care of earlier bikes. Presently, I own an 03 Concours.(my second one) and love the bike, but I made a big mistake and rode an 05 FJR...oops!!
Thanks a million and take care.

Hi Doug, welcome to the site. In short nobody knows if they have been fixed. My observation is that the incidence has decreased with each succeeding year. There seemed to be quite a few reports on the 02 and 03 models, some 04's. then a couple of 05's. It remains to be seen on the 06's.

The good thing is Yamaha will fix them at no cost, seemingly, even if they are out of warranty, so I wouldn't let the issue keep you from getting one.
