There are two kinds of that emblem. Those that have fallen off, and those that will fall off. The guy I ride with and I just had it happen.

Someone stole mine too. The 1st little scoot I took it on after purchasing, when I returned I noticed it missing. I never stopped or left the bike anywhere so I assume a stealthy thief creeped up while I was stopped at a light, peeled it off, then disappeared back into the daylight.

Someone stole mine too and laid it on the ground next to the bike. Why would they do that? :)

You can find a replacement on the 2012 parts fische for sure.

Inappropriate adhesive for chrome, chosen by Yamaha. Park your bike in the sun and more than likely the right side will fall off...... RTV adhesive will stick to chrome.

When I saw it was missing all I could do is laff thinking of other threads I have read about the same thing, I thought how lucky I was that I only lost an emblem and not a bag.

Partzilla part #5JW-W9345-00-00 for $13.49 + $9.95 shipping + $1.70 tax. I just scraped off the old glue residue and stuck the new one on. It was on the right side, so maybe RaYzerman is on to something about the factory peel and stick glue not holding up to heat from the sun, but this was the first one I've lost after almost 30,000 miles.

Sames. on Orion. I had some emblem adhesive that I used for another project, and it is holding fine now... But yeah, I had to buy one from Partzilla too.

Glue it on, then only use your hard cases when you’re going on a trip or you need the storage.

It's always the emblem on the right side. When someone asks if it's a BMW when they are standing on the right side... just agree. Only Yamaha owners know what that tuning fork symbol is on the tank! LOL Otherwise, it's a rare, single year (you pick the year) production BMW, it's easier that way. It has worked for me all these years.

My left side just went missing. So the right side thing may be incorrect. Almost 100K on 2 FJR's and now I have lost one. Ordering new and Gorilla glue.

See, your bike was made on the day that the left side guy got the lousy glue. Only because he complained so much that the right side guy got all the lousy glue every day! It would be wise to check all your left side screws, cuz, he's an angry man!

I'd love to get the p/n for the larger tuning 'coin' emblem for the Yamaha (smaller) trunk.

Actually, I want just the emblem, but if I had the part number I'd make my own arrangements.
smaller than the tank emblem and larger than the front cowling emblem. I think I even tried/buyed the emblem off a wave runner and it was too big.
