    Still the BEST bike ever!

    It is also the best bike I have owned. But my zx14 has quit a bit more power, handles better and is very smooth, reliability?

    Hi folks

    Never heard of a chip key for a fjr before. Glad mine is just a key.

    My friend Dave’s bike.

    Great story. Other bikes may come and go from my garage but the fjr stays.

    my fjr 1300

    Here is my 2016 es, bought used with 13 miles in 2017. Came with the factory top box and I love the extra storage. Have tipover bars and bag guards. cox radiator guard, and the yamaha touring screen. Sargent seat that is ok but not great. Need to get a russell day long and the bike will be near...

    Name that FJR

    fjr or fj, My zx14 is NInja or 14 or zx14. I would name them but it would be a female name and then the wife...well i can hear it already. I could name them Samantha 1 and 2 but then oh its just not worth it.

    2018 FJR - 3 Years in

    I think it depends on what your are used to, if your bike is in good condition anyway. I always thought my fjr was so easy to steer, turn, handle compared to other bikes mostly cruisers. Then I bought a 2018 zx14 and it turns and handles much better but not the brakes and they are even brembos...

    Greets from Indy

    Welcome from Kansas. I got a kit from ebay for sport bikes that has all the screws, plastic "pops" I call them can be bought cheap also. Sounds like you got a great bike.

    Turbo FJR

    Would love to have my fjr a turbo but could not do it if she has to take her clothes off like that.

    FJRF013 - Transmission Recall for Second Gear (DE, UK, CA, & US) (2016-2020)

    Got my fjr back from the local yamaha shop today, brake and transmission recalls done. Transmission feels like it always did, no problems. Mine was their first, state they have another in line.

    Kawasaki new muscle cruiser

    Heard a rumor on you tube about Kawasaki possibly coming out with a cruiser with the h2 engine in it. Sounds great to me. Hopefully the dont pull a yamaha move like the vmax and have a 100 mile range or something like that that would really reduce the number of buyers. I think if they make it...

    Getting the urge for a change

    I like having different bikes, i have an fjr and a rocket 3.  Always thought a gsxr 750 would be a great machine, not sure I would fit on it being six foot one. Love Kawasakis even though i currently dont own one, z900 sounds like a good bike. I got rid of an 11 fjr and ended up buying another...

    What did you do to your FJR today?

    Rode to the grocery store for the wife. It was 41 degrees out but at least I got to ride. I have sure got my money out of my firstgear heated jacket.

    Almost an FJR owner...

    When i want to stretch my legs on a highway run i just let them flop down and flow behind the bike, air pressure will keep them off the road and it helps a lot. Try it I find it works for me.
