Suggested FJR improvements:

1. 900 watt alternator.
2. Stiffer suspension and get rid of the stupid lever...a knurled knob ala VFR 800 ABS is better.
3. OPTIONAL traction control.
4. OPTIONAL electronic cruise control.
5. OPTIONAL heated seat.
6. Adjustable foot pegs, seat and handlebars.
7. Heated grips standard.
8. Power socket standard.
9. Trip computer.
10. OPTIONAL electronic suspension adjustments.

Nothing else is required

Mmmmmmm....
That sums up what is required to be the best (most gadgets?) in that class. Add an inline six and you've got a direct competition to the K1600GT.

The only thing updates do these days is add weight and unnecessary technology which drives the price up.

I hope they leave it alone

Careful what you ask for!  You never hear of  problems with fried stators but increase the alternator to 900 and you will.  The heated grips, which are now standard, and a slicker fairing are all I ask for.  But I would be happy with no changes other than a loss of about 50lbs!

Makes it easier to dual sport it that way.

I notice that some people with wish list do not list owning a FJR. I do and ride mine instead of play with computer..

Power-just fine
gearing-perfect for two up
seat-copy Russell
windshield-copy Cal Sci
powerlets-add what you want
cruise control-Audiovox
handlebar position-try factory adjustments before adding goodies
Paint-look at euro trim
suspension-adjust factory-amazing
luggage-needs some work
Alternator capacity-use LED aux lighting
ground spiders-dumbass engineering-easily fixed
engine-needs hydraulic lifters , better plugs

Most of the wants can be addressed with farkles,factory needs to do their part.....

I've been on two wheels more than 50  years - perfect bike has never been built...

In addition to the fakles, what do folks think of the cosmetic facelift?

A)  Revolutionary?

B)  Evolutionary?

C)  Meh?

Another thing I like about the FJR.......it's the best looking Sport Tourer when you take the bags off!!

I ride without the bags on mine unless taking a long trip......each bag weighs 12lbs, instant 24lbs lighter!

I have a Black 2008 and without the bags it kinda' reminds me of a Honda Blackbird.
