Just picked up a 2015 FJ-09 today for my wife as a kinda late birthday present. I have a 2017 FZ09 that she really liked the power of but wanted something a bit more comfortable. I'm really stoked for her as this means we can start taking some 1000+ mile trips together. I rode the bike a little bit today and noticed a couple of issues I'll be addressing (or attempting to address).
I got the speed wobble above 100. Did some youtube research and bigger screen was listed as a cause which this does have a Vstream sport touring screen. The bike has brand new Q3+ so I'd hesitate to say tire issue. Everything else is bone stock. I'll of course be searching the site for solutions but if anyone feels like throwing in their 2 cents about it I'd appreciate it. (hope this isn't the "beating a dead horse" topic. haha)
The dealership had to replace the clutch cable. Thing snapped like 4 inches from the lever. Not something I'd expect on a 3-4 year old bike with only 9000 miles. New cable on now so no concern but will definitely be checking all other hoses/wires for unusual wear.
I think I'd like to put an ohlins shock on the back. The front seemed really solid both hwy and some of the 3 Sisters road I was on today but back seemed a hair unsettled. Anywho looking forward to wrenching on the bike a little and getting it dialed in for my wife.
