On the FJR, did you try it on the front, the rear, or both?
I installed the 705 on the rear wheel when the OEM Bridgestone was still good, and didn't have a problem. The next year, I pulled the Bridgestone off the front, installed new 705's (front and rear) and wondered what I had gotten myself into. Somewhere between 20 and 50 miles later, I stopped noticing the problem
I expect I'll need another front in a year or two, and at that point, I'll find out if I just got used to the feel of the tire, or if the tire just has to scrub in before it settles down.
