’86 Yamaha FJ1200

It was a warm afternoon, not to be confused with the popular cold and stormy was working on my trusty CB750F ready for the 3 Flags Classic in a couple of weeks. As usual, out I needed to go back to the dealer I forgot something, you know small like uh, the rear with a new tire on it. As I walked into the service area my and dealership manager, Harlan, me just to BS for a few minutes.

As we’re I keep looking over his at this Yamaha up on a lift serviced. It was a beautiful two tone and silver FJ1200. Being the salesman that he is, Harlan me looking at the FJ and starts his job. ” We got it in on trade, its in perfect condition, than 10,000 miles…how miles on that old Honda of Next thing I know, the hasn’t been mounted on my yet (classic stall tactic) and the is coming down off the lift. The guy starts the bike up and walks it looking for oil drips, parts off, you know, anything shouldn’t be happening.

While I’m watching the mechanic over the bike, my ‘friend’ is off getting a helmet, gloves and As the bike is being rolled the riding gear is handed to me, it and tell me what you think of Harlan is such an ………. my mysteriously not ready yet tire and were sitting by the tire machine I took the big FJ out for a ride, as expected I would, I can’t riding different motorcycles.

To make a long story after two days of haggling the dealership owner I was in my garage an FJ1200 for a two week road

It didn’t take long to in love with the big Yamaha, it did my Honda did and then some. yeah I know, it’s and bigger, it should be better but I say, I was surprised at how much The FJ 1200 is a sport tourer in sense of the term.

For a big bike it handles surprisingly and with a couple of easy mods and the right tires the FJ very sporty. The bike is comfortable whether your hot around on Sunday morning, to work, riding solo loaded for traveling or two up, it doesn’t I did put a Corbin seat on mine for a but went back to the stocker it was better for short rides the custom seat. And then is that wonderful motor.

of horsepower to keep you entertained all day enough torque to pull an trailer, smooth and reliable. the Happy Handle (throttle) and the FJ pass anything on the road…except a gas All that great power at a price…per gallon. But you know

It’s worth it.

I found nice FJ1200 on ebay Not a lot of miles really,and even the pictures aren’t that it looks to be in nice shape for its actually better than its age’. Hopefully the aftermarket isn’t too loud. If you’re about a good sport and don’t want to spend on a new one, this would be an choice.

A couple of things I would though; replace the fork with a set that are a bit beefier work well on the FJ), a new shock (if you’re not trying to a pure sport bike out of who would?…Progressive makes a very rear set up), install an advancer to help the motor run a bit and if it hasn’t been treated to a new yet, get one. After which isn’t all that it will take you anywhere you to go smoothly, reliably, and fast!

By the that fairing works good traveling. Click on the for more. And, you might to send these guys questions because there much detail in the description than ‘it runs good’.
