Yamaha Other description

 Collector quality 1986 Yamaha fj1200. Unbelievable condition for a bike  30 plus years old. This bike has been properly stored and maintained. I am the third owner of this iconic sport touring 
Yamaha that has never been ridden in the rain! Adult owned since new. Never been down or abused in any way.Included in the sale is the original owners manual, original yamaha tool kit{complete}, 2 original keys,
and the original title. The original owner was an FJ fanatic-his name is inscribed on the bottom of the seat.. He owned it from 1986 to 2006 and I am told he never had it in the rain. The bike is original and numbers matching.
The previous owner added a 4 into 1 discontinued V&H pipe kit. Pipe sounds great and is not loud.


Condition:

Bike is in fantastic condition. Plastic is near perfect with no broken tabs or cracks.The paint is original and shines like new. Gas tank has no dents and decals are also excellent condition. Windshield is also original and has minor
scratches and one tiny crack at one of the screws. All retainers for fairings,windshield and plastics is original and corrosion free. Grips, bar ends, footpegs all original. Engine is clean and has no leaks. Cylinder heads have minor black
paint flaking,unavoidable on an original bike. The bike will come with 2 lower chin fairings. The original one mounted on bike shows well but has some typical cracks etc.. consistent with a 30 plus year old bike. Included in the sale will
be an nos-never mounted chin fairing complete with uninstalled heat shield as seen in pics. This is the holy grail for fj owners and worth its weight in gold. How the 2nd owner found it is astounding! It is in new condition with no flaws.
He told me he mounted it once on the bike for pictures but screw holes show no signs of this. He never tightened the retainers. Choice is yours if you want to install the heat shield and mount it. I never did. The Oiginal slave cylinder weeped
slightly and lifted a small amount of paint on the frame underneath it. Very common on Fj's. There is a small paint touch up on the tail housing just behind the seat. Paint match is absolutely perfect. There is no paint fade on this bike anywear...period. Always stored indoors away from windows and sun. 



The bike starts and shifts excellent.Once warm it idles nicely at 1100. Suspension is factory adjustable is firm and handles very nicely. Many people upgrade the suspension on these bikes. Suspension is all original on this FJ.
All guages work properly and entire electrical system is in untouched condition and is operational. Second owner replaced original style petcock with a manual style under tank as originals are prone to failure.


Maintenance: all done @ 11500


Metzeler Tires
DID gold o-ring chain
Slave cylinder rebuilt oe parts
Front brake master rebuild oe parts
Front brake pads
Carbs rebuilt by Jim Hailmann-Mikuni Doctor...Ultrasonic cleaning and bench test.

This bike has been a tough one to figure out for me during my ownership. It looks so nice you want to preserve it and keep it off the road. I could not do that,I road it about 500 miles a year on perfect days. Its just one of the nicest 
Fj1200's left. And one you can ride with confidence or display forever in your basement,you choose. I am reluctantly selling at the end of the season-here in WI- as I probably would change my mind any other time. For a relatively 
low price you can own one of the best sport touring bikes by any manufacturer.

Pikes Peak 87th Annual International Hill Climb [pics and video]

Fri, 15 May 2009

Named after a man by the name of Zebulon Pike, an explorer who led an expedition to the area in 1806, Pikes Peak is home to the second oldest motorsports race in America second only to the Indianapolis 500. First completed in 1916, this year marks the 87th running of the “Race to the Clouds.” If the math doesn’t add up, this is because there were several years that the event did not run over the course of its 93 year history. The 12.4 mile trek up the mountain consists of 156 treacherous turns to an elevation of 14,110 feet.
