    2016ES factory Demo bike for sale, concerns

    Here's one new for same price in Chatsworth Cali. Maybe show it to a local dealer to see if they'd match it?

    Cold Starting

    Does it stay at 13.1 after running for it for a while?

    Cold Starting

    Might want to get the battery load tested, if it's good then you could do an amp check on the starter motor. Acting up also when it's hot out makes it sound like a bad starter motor drawing more amps than it should.

    FJR Mileage Milestones

    Don't know if this is really a milestone compared to some of the big dogs in here, but my '16 that I picked up April 15th turned 10k on the way home from Hooterville last week, and it's now ready for another set of rubber.

    FJR vs CanAm fully loaded

    Still working on getting that bike comfortable to you are ya? But then again it is Friday!

    Gotta have both hands in the air when you say that!

    Heavy ...

    That thing looks like a great idea. Leave it to me though, I'd prolly drop my bike on the bag the jack is in Mr Garauld, think you could make us something like this?

    Well, it finally happened....

    Yep, I bought my Gen 1 with a bent upward right mirror mount. The stay was a steel welded assembly so that I was able to bend the mirror mount back into place and all was well. Like Mac says, it appears to be a retrograde aka money maker on the Gen III;s for mama.

    Figured out what the initials stand for

    I tried the Yamaha touring screen on my bike for a couple of days and took it back. It was almost right for me at 5'10" but left me looking for just a bit more. I went with the Cee Bailey mid size shield and it wound up being almost identical for me to the touring screen.

    ES VS A

    +1 on the A. Nothing against the ES, I can appreciate the ability of the ES for easier suspension adjustments plus the '16 model now has those nifty lean angle cornering lights. But as a technician and a cheap bastage, I went with the A because I cringe at the thought of having to rebuild an ES...

    And Here's ANOTHER Gripe about Gen III FJRs

    "makes it too easy to forget to zero the gauge" Sounds like you're showing your age there

    2016 Is Official 6-spd, Slipper, LEDs, Analog Tach, Price

    Sheesh, like Zilla said a few weeks back, sometimes you guys just sound so effing smart! If cold air intake kits increase performance, maybe just daisy chain a bunch of them together in a row and strap them on. If one is good, 10 has to be 10 times better. I'll post back up in a bit with my...

    FJR Fees

    Yamaha has a pre sale order program where a pre sold unit goes to that dealer before other order requests are filled, which is how mine came. You might have to wait a couple of weeks for it to come in, or your dealer might be able to work a trade with a dealer that has one.

    FJR Fees

    My local DFW dealer came in at around $600 less in April total OTD on mine, but it was a straight purchase with no trade. I've been told that car dealers make more money on trade in sales turnarounds than they do on the new vehicle. Assuming the same is true for motorcycles, your dealer might...
