Yamaha Other description

Up for auction is a very nice 1985 Yamaha FJ600N sport bike in excellent condition. I'm the second owner of this motorcycle and I can tell you it's been very well maintained, garage kept and clean.

Yamaha only made the FJ600 for two years, 1984 and 1985. This was the very first model sport bike offered in the USA with an engine alignment of inline 4 cylinders with a total cubic inch displacement over 550cc. There were a very limited number of these motorcycles brought to the US at the time. These are becoming increasingly rare as is finding this model bike in this condition.

This bike has been kept completely stock with the only change being the air filters. I removed the stock air box and replaced it with K&N air pods. Upon doing so, the carbs were re-jetted with main jets and slow jets two sizes larger from stock. This really opened up the motor and fixed the cold starting problem these bikes have. She starts and runs awesome every time.

The bike was repainted years ago back to stock colors and the original Yamaha decals were put back on. Many small items have been fixed or replaced over the years to keep the bike as stock as possible. I've always run Mobile 1 full synthetic since I've owned it. The chain was replaced two years ago as were the tires. Brake pads were also replaced aprox. 1,000 miles ago, both front and rear. Clutch is strong, shows no signs of slippage. New battery installed last year.


Some known issues:

- Neutral light stays on all the time

- Small exhaust leak where the header meets the pipes, smokes a little at that spot when the engine is warm

- Cracked right rear-view mirror

- Rear sprocket rusted

- Lower cowling cracked and repaired

- Rear tire shows a little dry-rot on the sidewalls, lots of tread on both tires

- Overall signs of its age; scuffs, chips in the paint, paint on the motor faded, a few rusty screws here and there. There is NO major damage or missing parts.

I have the title in my hands. I will not allow test rides by minors or unlicensed riders. I will not deliver this bike unless you live in my hometown. Arrangements for delivery must be made by the buyer. I will assist in any way I can. I also reserve the right to end this auction at any time as the bike is also listed for sale locally.

 I DO NOT offer any warranty of any kind on this purchase. It is YOUR responsibility to know what you are buying and you take full responsibility for your purchase when the deal is closed. I will not refund your money for any reason or accept a return on this purchase unless the motorcycle is not exactly as I've described it. By bidding on this auction you accept these terms.

The new Yamaha Tenere is preparing to debut

Sun, 30 Jul 2017

The next-generation 689cc touring enduro is almost ready. The bike, magnificent in its conciseness and Dakar functionality, is a kind of preview of the future SUV that will replace the XT660Z Tenere. The rival of the BMW F800 GS/F 800 GS Adventure and the promising KTM 790 Adventure borrowed the 689cc inline-two from the Yamaha MT-07 and XSR700 (on these bikes it develops 74.8 hp and 68 Nm).

The World Endurance Championship Starts This Weekend

Wed, 23 Apr 2014

Endurance racing is perhaps the ultimate test of both man and machine. In the past, teams would pace themselves in order to rest both elements enough to make a final push at the end. These days, however, motorcycles are more reliable than ever, and riders train like triathletes.

Wayne Rainey Visits Yamaha Racing HQ

Racing legend and three-time 500cc Grand Prix Champion Wayne Rainey paid a visit to Yamaha Motor Racing’s headquarters just outside of Milan, Italy. The 1990-1992 World Champion met with employees of Yamaha Racing, Yamaha Motor Italy and Yamaha Motor RD Europe and officially opened a new boardroom named in his honor. Rainey, along with current Yamaha factory MotoGP racers Jorge Lorenzo and Ben Spies, took time to take photographs and sign autographs with the Yamaha staff.
