Mike there were a lot of improvements to the FJR in 06. I would really wait and find one from 06 up. That's what I did. I'm very happy with mine, but there are a other of the gs to consider.

Subject: Never thought this day would come
Really considering trading in the Geeper on an 05 FJR. Have to do some research, don't know anything about them.
Been fighting a tank vent issue for a while now, tried a pingle pet cock blew out the vents and it still randomly runs out of fuel, pull over, open the gas cap and it starts right back up, may run the rest of the day, or may run 10 miles, you never know.
Took a trip to Glenwood Springs this weekend, had to do the pullover and reset thing 3 times in about 650 miles, and I noticed it just didn't feel as good as it used to, the steering head is loose again and it used a little oil, but still ran great (when there was fuel in the bowls) and kept up with the guys on the beemers and FJRs who were running way faster than you should.
I have a lot of good memories on this old bike in the last 40,000 or so miles, but that fuel injection and saddlebags are very tempting, at least I have until tues to think about it.
