Often the transmission will clunk when first starting up and shifting into 1st. gear. To help alleviate this, hold the clutch lever in for thirty seconds or so before making that first shift into gear. This should make shifting into first much quieter.
This situation occurs on most of the FJRs, even when new.

This happens when the parts of gear box is not proper due to misalignment. hence service the gear box first.... also change the oil and all the ball bearings of the gear box ... lubricate every parts in gear box.

Starter spinning wrong way


Wow. Probably the positive and negative connections have gotten reversed in the solinoid and starter motor. Still stuck? I recommend a DIYer's repair manual that shows electrical connections for the starting system.

Is there any problem running synthetic oil in the fjr 1300. Can it cause clutch slippage etc......


Hello scamp, if your engine is broke in, rings seated, then there is no problem running synthetic. Synthetic will protect your engine better & will give superior lubrication, smoother gear shifts & easier cold weather start-ups. What you want to avoid is the "friction modifiers & energy conserving" labels. These have been known to effect clutch performance.

Yamalube 20w40 is recommended for your bike. That viscosity is hard to find in other brands.
Mobil 1 Racing 4T 10W-40 meets or exceeds mfrs specs.
Service classifications, API SM, SL, SJ.SH, CF, JASO MA
I hope this helps, & good luck with your bike.

Tire pressure is 36 psi @ front & rear but if the total load is over 198 pounds shuold be 42 psi on rear, always measured when tire is cold. Final gear oil capacity is .21 US qt or .18 Imp qt, engine is 4.23 US qt or 3.52 Imp qt when replacing the oil filter. information is from the owner's manual.
