The two dealers I have dealt with locally (and actually like) are Montgomeryville cycle center in Hatfield PA and CycleMax in Honeybrook PA. Cyclemax is a little more low-key (salesguys don't hound you like a dog in heat).

Either one should be fair and reasonable. I know for a fact that cyclemax has at least one lightly used fjr on the floor.

Good luck!!

PS: I'm buying a "new to me" 05 FJR from Mosites in North Huntington...I'll let you know how that works out. They should be in your neighborhood


Thanks much! I'll put them on the list and let me know how the deal in North Huntington goes.

Hi I wanted to get back to you about Mosites. Six months, the bike is perfect. Mosites trested me properly. No complaints

I found this dealer lacking:
Palmdale supercycle
Palmdale Ca.93550

First the ignition switch recall. The tech did not tighten the battery terminals. This caused the bike to stall while riding,
Second the grounding recall. I advised the shop supervisor of my bad first experience. The expectation was the detail work would be taken care of. The rear bolt holding down the gas tank was missing the nut. Not critical, but come on guys. I called to complain ... Oh yea it's Monday, their closed. Now I wonder what else they didn't do correctly.

Does anyone have any information on Texas dealers?

STAY AWAY FROM:

Shawmut Hills Cycles and Sales
2807 Lake Michigan Drive
Grand Rapids, MI 49504

Their service is not only slow but it sucks. I brought my tires in off the bike and they held them overnight to do a tire change and warped my rear rotor by dropping the tire and scuffed my painted rims (to the metal)


When I was looking to buy my 2012, I saw they had one listed on CycleTrader.com, so I inquired about it. Didn't even get a response from these guys!

Renton Motorcycle Company closed about 4 months ago. Lamphere converted the building into a car showroom for his Honda franchise. Not many cycle shops left in the Seattle/Puget Sound area.


I bought my FJR from Adventure Motorsports in Monroe, WA. John Edgar is the head mechanic and has always done great work on my '09.

Anyone recommend which of these three NW Oregon dealers is best (or least worst...):

1. Cycle Sports - Salem
2. Power Yamaha - Sublimity
3. Lamphere's Beaverton Yamaha

I shudder at the thought of taking my '07 FJR to any of them, but I now need to because of the dreaded clutch disengagement issue. Cripes.

TIA,

Derv

I went to Hinshaw's in Auburn, they've been good to my bikes, something I can't vouch for with Motoplex in Lynnwood. Might be, because I bought a few bikes in Auburn, the best catch I did was my FJR, one of the honchos owned her and so I got me a used bike with the knowledge that all is fine with her..... But I second you, not many dealers left here at the Pacific Northwest!

If you are ever in need of a Yamaha dealer in Louisiana, do NOT go to Lafayette Powersports.   They did not even know who made an FJR when I asked about buying one there.   After some discussion with the sales staff, I was told that they are not really interested in motorcycles -- four wheelers, ATVs, and boats are their thing.

RL Equipment in Verner Ontario, between Sudbury and North Bay.

 

An exceptional dealer for FJR service. Both the dealer principal and his wife both ride FJR's. I actually feel guilty when I have to bring my bike in somewhere else besides them.

 

Replaced a brake line at on FJRRob1300's bike on day one of a 3 week trip from stock braided line when NOBODY else would touch it. These guys will get you, and keep you on the road.

Halls Motorsports in Harvey, Louisiana, has a new 2013 FJR listed on their web site for $13,799.   Gave them a call to see if this was for a bike they actually had.  Was told it was sold last Saturday  but that they can get another at that price.   I then asked if what other charges would be added.   There is a dealer fee, he says .... $1,250.    Say what?   He explained that they list the dealer cost on the web site, and they have to add profit to that.   Hmmmm.   Can someone say deceptive advertising?   What a crock.

First the ignition switch recall. The tech did not tighten the battery terminals. This caused the bike to stall while riding,
Second the grounding recall. I advised the shop supervisor of my bad first experience. The expectation was the detail work would be taken care of. The rear bolt holding down the gas tank was missing the nut. Not critical, but come on guys. I called to complain ... Oh yea it's Monday, their closed. Now I wonder what else they didn't do correctly.

 The owner of the place lisited above also owns this dealership:

 

AV Kawasaki, Yamaha, Polaris

400 W. Avenue I

Lancaster, CA 93534

 

I bought my FJR from this place... The staff and service folks are unprofessional and untrained. They overcharge for awful service and are usually late on what is promised. Most of the time I had to redo was was serviced on my bike... I mean, how hard is it to statically balance a tire??? They put the weights on the heavy side... The last (warranty) service they performed (replacing my defective fuel tank) took them 3 weeks to do (verses the 4 days promised), they charged me for fuel, and gave me the bike back covered in bird crap... When I gave them a bad review via a received Corporate Yamaha survey, the Service Manager called me and bullied me about my comments...and told me he wasn't going to be as nice to me next time. Well, there won't be a next time... All that read this have been warned - stay away from this dealership!
