Prior to the service manuals (which are copyrighted and we won't host) there was a very detailed orientation guide released in or about 2003 that isn't protected. Although you can't tear down and rebuild an FJR with the guide....there are many pictures, detailed schematics, and specs of the 2003 Gen 1 model. It's a good read for those that haven't seen it and a great piece of archival history we should retain here.

I've also added a link the Gen 1 Bin O' Facts.

I was expecting some kind of field guide that would help one determine the sexual orientation of an FJR rider based on the year, color, options and farkles.

Lots of good info in there I didn't really know, like the 1.3 gallon fuel reserve thing. No wonder I've always been able to go at least 40 miles on the road....

Thank you!

This so called orientation guide is the only source I've been able to find that list the cam timing events which are an invaluble tuning aid. A fellow member sent them to me in a PDF format and I'm most grateful for his help.
