Yamaha FJ1100
« on: June 27, 2018, 01:38:03 am »
There is one for sale near me for $1200, looks to be in pretty nice shape for $1200 and I’ve always wanted to ride/own one. Anything I should know about these? It has a nice looking aftermarket seat too...maybe a Corbin with matching red piping...has 45k miles on the odo. Condition without physically looking at it and considering it’s age, perhaps a 7/10.

I had a first year, 1984 FJ1100 back in 1984.   I liked it very much, put on around 20k miles.   The Corbin seat is an improvement over the stock seat.   I also bought a Corbin with red piping for mine.   Mine burnt up some valves that I had to get repaired.

Yeah I forgot about the different tire sizes.   I think it has a 16" on the front.   You should still be able to find the tires though.
