Do you know what the engine changes between sport/touring modes? I was excited when I heard about it on the new ZX14, but disappointed when I found it only cut ignition timing, so the only benefit was less power !?!? I'd want it to run a leaner map for better MPGs to go with the less power. On that, have you ridden enough to find MPG?

The kill switch has a 'start' position? Do that mean it's got just a transponder for the key?
The Touring and Sport modes provide the full HP, but throttle response is less aggressive in Touring mode.

The kill switch does away with a separate starter switch. Toggle it all the way up, it kills the engine, push it all the way down, you start the engine. No transponder key like on the C14.

The owner's manual for the 2013 FJR is available on the Yamaha site for download.
