    FS: ‘89 Yamaha FJ1200

    Old beast for sale. Too big for me, and will hardly see any use save for a trip around the block every now and then to keep it ticking over.
    No smoke or rattles.
    Windscreen and LH mirror missing; recent clutch cylinders.
    Everything works.
    Reg on hold!
    $2600 neg, or interested in a lams jobbie to get the mrs into the game.
    P plate negotiable.

    I dare you to (try to) go from a standing start to 7000 rpm all the way through the gears ... with 7000 rpm max in top gear ...
    Sweat wipes off. Road-rash doesn't.

    All relative to what one is used to.

    Picked up an FJR1300 a few months ago, nice smooth bike, somewhat less responsive than my Busa though

    In fairness, a nice 650 V-Strom is gaining in appeal

    Good luck with the sale, the FJ series have their appeal
    If the words I say offend you, imagine the ones I keep to myself...

    That, my good man, would be a no.

    It red-lines at 9000 ... what could possibly go wrong ...

    I tried it on mine on a very long straight bit of road (a closed and private road of course) and I still ran out of road. I only made it to 5000 in top ...

    I’ve had it in 4th in legal mode and it didn’t like that very much.
