2016 FJR Issue

Postby Roguedog » Sun Aug 13, 2017 8:29 pm

Hello All,

Got a glitch with my 2016 FJR, 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. Runs fine when accelerating, however last Thursday it would idle but not accelerate at all after running fine for 10 minutes then turned off for an hour. Cleared itself after a few minutes minutes and two or three restarts.

Bike still under warranty, will visit a dealer soon but any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Regards

Syd

I was guessing bad fuel too you might have gotten a load of water and crud a tank of e10 or e85 if you can find it may clean things up or dump in a bottle of metho. Other issues could be power related it's old enough now for spider bite type problems to crop up and if Yamaha hasn't redesigned the looms to prevent them it is very likely that a connector is breaking contact when hot. One other member reported an as yet unofficial spider problem in a connector that is not part of the previous recall.

That was my 2014 FJR Helixxx, the 16 hasn't had the trailer on or been exploring any off road ravines yet.
Insurance for that off road escapade hasn't been sorted yet, I picked the wrong repairer to do a quote.
How is you?

I'm pretty sure that Ken mentioned in a older post that the Gen 4 had the same shitty designs for the spiders so if it isnt fuel I would check them .
