2012 Yamha FJR 1300A Sports Tourer
32,xxx KMs (Serviced at 30,000KMs)
I have ridden "Sports Tourers" for the last 17yrs, Yamaha FJR1300 to be exact. IMHO one of the best bikes ever made.
This is my 3rd FJR (2 in Australia) and with changes the Generation 2 brought was subtle but good. Improved heat dissipation for one.
The FJR set the standard for Sport Tourers and they live up to their name. Fun in the twisties, and ready for those long-haul days. Excellent range with the big 25 liter tank and 400+ kilometers easily achieved.
Genuine Reason For Sale
Why am I selling it ?
Long story short, this time last year I was preparing for a trip on my Kawasaki GTR 1400, yes, the FJRs clone. But days before we were due to set off, an accessory caused a fire. The main loom was toast. I was not hopeful of resurrecting it.
Had to wait for a replacement loom from Japan, and it was riding season. After 8yrs trying to find a good, legit FJR a friend put mine put me onto 1 in Bangkok. I bought it. I have used the FJR for several trips until now and it’s just a great bike.
Roll forward nearly 9 months and the loom finally arrived and I went about bringing the GTR it back to life. To my surprise after 3 long days, it started. I have since been on a few trips and it runs perfectly.
What bike to keep. Having been able to ride both for a few thousand kms consecutively, there is not a lot in it. For me what it finally came down to was the odometer readings and potential for resale. I also have a BMW K1200S, I don’t need 3 bikes !
The GTR has 75,000 kms, the FJR just over 32,000 KMs. Purely on that factor I have decided to let the FJR go.
