Newbie from Vic

Postby Robbo » Thu Aug 10, 2017 8:56 pm

Hi All,

Name is Rob. Recently acquired a near new '16 ES.
A bit different to the cruisers I've been riding the last few years!

Great amount of info here. Hope I can give some input also.

Cheers, Rob

Welcome Robbo,

I have that model, all FJRs are awesome.

Got a glitch with mine though, runs a bit rough when trying to cruise at a steady speed, surging almost. Particularly noticeable when using cruise control. The slower I'm going the more I feel it.

Last Thursday it would idle but not accelerate. Cleared itself after 5 minutes.

Bike still under warranty, will visit a dealer soon.
