New Purchaser Checklist
Either personally double-check or ask the dealer specifically the following things before taking acceptance of the a new FJR:
* Are the saddlebag lock latch screws loctited? (validated this is still an issue with '07's, and:Security Torx Bit Link Clicky )
* Did you get theThird lock with bike in case you get a Yamaha top box?
* Are the Saddlebag body color caps included?
* Is the Toolkit under seat?
* Are the steering head bearings torqued? Many '05 were loose from the factory.
* Are the Mirrors tight? More than finger tightened. Consider changing to nylocs yourself when convenient. Or, alternatively, a tip from otrfjr: use 2 layers of teflon tape (the kind plumbers use & is $1 per roll) around the bolt. otrfjr found that this worked even better than the rubber washers on the mirrors.
* Point out any/all scratches
Things to check at 600 Miles:
Drive shaft spline, most have insufficient moly
Steering head bearing torque
Oil drain bolt over-torqued from the factory
Check rear brake caliper bolts (anti-seize) clicky
Recall/Technical Service Bulletin Info:
17-Oct-2007, Bulletin M2007-016
Affects 2006-2007 FJR1300A/AE, Poor Engine performance with change in altitude.
Parts Information: Part Number 90891-30054-00 (FJR 1300 ECU Kit, and 2 screws)
An alternate ECU can be installed to engage the altitude compensation feature with less than 1/4 throttle input.

15-Aug-2006, Bulletin M2006-012.
Affects only AE models, Range: 0006 - 0327, and 0011 - 0079 California
Part Information: Part Number: 90891-20120-00 ( a kit with 2 brackets, 2 nuts, 4 bolts, 6 drill bits, and a spline to 3/8" drive indicating torque wrench adapter.)
Test Part: Pull left side cover and air box cover. Pull shift linkage from the actuator. Use the adapter to install an indicating torque wrench (or torque analyzer) -- most will use a 2-beam torque wrench. Check for movement clockwise and counter-clockwise with 29 ft-lbs of torque (never exceed 29 ft-lbs). If the shaft moves -- replace the actuator assembly.
Install brackets (2): Pull shift actuator. Lower the rear shock remote adjuster (3 nuts). Drill out the threads to 8mm on the actuators rear mount hole (ONLY ONE HOLE). Install bracket to the inside of the frame with longer provided bolt. Install bracket 2 to aft mounting hole with the bracket stud installed in the sub-frame crossover plate (existing hole). (Do not know what the torques are -- see your dealer for a copy of the bulletin). Re-install actuator shift arm to the shaft and adjust according to service manual.)

Per ponyfool, although the Purolator number cross-references to Napa Gold 1365 (mfg: Wix), the gasket and the threads are nearly level with one another, thus when screwed on as far as it would go, the gasket never touched the engine, it stayed out about 1/16".

There are 10 segments on the coolant temperature bar graph/display for Gen II FJR's. (Gen 1's have 6 bars)
Estimated bar to temperature conversion (otrfjr) (i.e. using the '05 values and dividing by 10)
Basis: If 1 bar = 104 (degrees Fahrenheit) and 6 bars = 248; for 10 bars >> then 248-104 = 144/10 = 14.4/per bar.
Estimations based on Gen 1 data:
1 = 104.0 - 118.4 (deg. F)
2 = 118.5 - 132.9
3 = 133.0 - 147.4

Adjustable Middle Fairing: Clicky for Pics
Allows warm air to be directed on or away from the rider.
Highly debated as to which position is for summer and winter, the bottom line is that it does not make anything cooler.
The adjustable middle fairings changes the direction of the warm air, but does not reduce heat.
In th 'In' position, the stream of warm air is closer to the FJR, and with the 'Out' position, the stream is about 2-3" farther away from the FJR at the rider's peg.

Front BrakePads (kit)
Each front caliper requires 4 pads, so you need 8pads total to replace all front pads.
OEM Part SKU# 3P6-W0045-00-00. This brake pad kitincludes 2 pads and retails for about $70.
EBC HH sintered Part SKU# FA423/4HH. Unlike theOEM kit, EBC's kit includes 4 pads and a kit goes for about $50.
(note that many on-line sites incorrectly list SKU#FA417/4HH. This SKU WILL NOT FIT the Gen II FJR)
RearBrake Pads (kit)
OEM Part SKU# 3P6-W0046-50-00, retails for about$50.
EBC HH sintered Part SKU# FA319/2HH (order 1 set),about $30.
Front OEM Part SKU# 3P6-25919-00-00 Retail about$20 You'd need 4 total to do the front. It's not clear how many come in apackage.
Rear OEM Part SKU# 5JW-25919-00-00 Retail about$5. You'd need 2 to do the back.
Gary McCoy recommended to a forum member that thispad be replaced with the brake pads.
According to some forum posts the EBC sinteredpads do not wear as long as the OEM pads and may cause extra wear on the rotor.EBC does not make an organic pad for the FJR.

From Iggy: Watts = Volts x Amps. So we know power in watts for a Gen II is 590 watts. We know the produced voltage without a major load is about 14 volts. So amps are 590/14 = 42.

Many have installed HeatTrollers for grip control.
Installing HeatTroller in the Left Handlebar: Clicky
In 2006, the FJR1300AE models were blessed with OEM grip heaters. The Gen II controller power the same grip watt level, but they have added a power management system to it. The OEM grip heater circuit monitors engine speed (RPM) and varies power with speed – at zero mph (low RPM) you get zero heat, and zero drain on the electrical system (as the RPM is not high enough). As the RPM increases above 3K (speculation on the number), the controller provides full power to the grips. Details: It is believed to be that Yamaha has gone from a 'level comparator' controller to a one chip solution using a 555 timer.

Spring rates and conversions (Thanks FJRFencer):
1 N/mm = 5.724 lb/in (springrate)
1 N-m(torque) = 8.85 lb-in (torque)
From Lee At Traxxion
There are two shock springs on the Gen1 and Gen2 FJR.
Specific to Lee's experience with the '05 (Gen1) and '06 (Gen2):
(Gen 1) '05 has a short 1400 lb/in spring AND a longer 670 lb spring.
On the soft setting, the two springs are used in series and provide a 440 lb/inch rating.
On the hard setting, the short spring is locked out and the single 670 lb spring is used.
(Gen II) '06 has a short 1800 lbs/inch spring AND the same 670 lb longer rate spring as the Gen I.
Learned from testing and measuring the (Gen II) '06 shock: The soft setting was upped from the Gen I to make it more useful to a wider range of riders while the hard setting was left unchanged from Gen I.
(Physical dimensions were exactly the same on the '05 Gen 1 and the '06 Gen II)

To enter Diagnostic Mode: Have the key turned off (kill switch on) and press the Select and Reset together. Turn the key to on and hold the buttons for about 8 seconds. A screen will apear that reads "d1 AG". release the buttons.
(so far, same as prior models)
Use the "SELECT" select "Co" adjustment or the diagnostic mode "d1 AG". Press Select and Reset for 2 seconds. "d:01" should appear on the clock if you did everything right.
Press "SELECT" for the next code, Press "RESET" for the previous code.
Codes go from d:01 to d:70 -- go buy a manual for the codes.
Note: Lean Angle Sensor (Overturned Motorcycle) Fault code: 30
Scroll through the diagnostic codes to:
61 (the history of fault codes). If you see a 0 at the bottom right then there are no trouble codes. However if you see a number 30 that is the code for an over turned motorcycle. If you have the code 30 and want to erase it. Press the select button and go to number 62 (erase history code). Then turn the kill switch off, then back on again. This will erase this and any other codes stored in the memory. Then turn the key off to go back to normal operations. If you have any more codes I suggest you order the big book from FJR Goodies to problem solve or take it to your dealer.
Y.E.S. Factory Warranty (Yamaha Extended Service Plan)
$389 from D&H Cycle, 18115 US Hwy 31, Cullman, AL 35058, 256-739-1840, 888-553-3311
YES coverage can be bought from one dealer and apply to any other dealer fairly easily.
The one exception are Florida residents. That state is totally screwed up and passed a law that residents can only get insurance from in-state agents.

From Headude (May 21, 2007):
If you purchase through the special Yamaha financing promotion you can get an extra $25 off the Y.E.S. plan.
If you use Yamaha's special financing promotion to buy, in about 7-10 days you get a "credit card" in the mail with a coupon for $25 off the extended service plan.
There is a deadliine to take advantage of the offer, so check all dates on all paperwork/coupons, etc.

Source for custom FJR1300 farkle hardware is *** website:
The stock horns are wimpy. The popular farkle is to upgrade to Magnum Blasters. Sometimes they're hard to find and may also be marketed as "Freeway Blasters" Part #72112 and # 72102 for the low and high version. They are supposedly made by FIAMM and likely are regulated by U.S. and the E.U. I got mine at a Schucks and are reported to be carried at Napa as "FIAMM Blasters".
