Title: Grey Import 1995 FJ1200
Post by: aviationfred on August 25, 2017, 12:45:16 am
As a replacement bike for my stolen Beloved 1989 FJ1200/1300. I have purchased a Grey Import 1995 FJ1200. Yamaha stopped importing the FJ1200 into North America in 1993. The model continued to be produced for the rest of the world up to 1996. This bike was brought to the US by a Marine who purchased it in Japan. As far as I know, this is the only 1995 FJ1200 in the United States. Other than the paint scheme, the bike is 100% compatible to the 1993 model year, so parts will not be an issue.

This was a Fly and Ride from Wichita, KS to Salt Lake City, UT. Once purchased I left on an extended ride to attend the 2017 Central FJ Rally in Wisconsin. Roughly 2500 miles over 5 days returned me back to Wichita.

A stop at the Mississippi River. The funky looking windscreen is a Europe Spec OEM windscreen. It looks odd, the view from behind it is even more odd, but it works well.
