    1989 Yamaha FJ1200


    Figured I'd throw this up here, the FJ needs a new home. Love her but I'm overflowing with projects and she's just been sitting around. Really she deserves to be cared for, a full carb rebuild, some simple bodywork to clean her up, stuff I just don't have the time for. I've basically decided to hold off and get something newer for two-up rides down the road.

    $1,200 NESR price. Open to partial trades/trades - bikes/cars/tools/mountain bikes/road bikes/trailers/computers/whatevah...

    53k miles
    runs good, starts every time
    includes OEM service manual, valve adjust tool
    includes RPM full carb rebuild kit + gaskets
    new battery, valve cover bolt gaskets, clutch slave, tires in 2016
    weathered but super cozy Corbin seat w/ passenger backrest (removable)
    some scratches/damage from previous owners

    Details + pics on the CL: 1989 Yamaha FJ1200 - Trades

    I put about $1,500 + labor into her last year, more interested in finding a good home than making cash. A few interested parties now but nobody has put cash in my hand yet, and honestly these Craigslist weirdos are going to give me an aneurysm.

    Suppose I'll give her a bump before I commit to a sale... totally open to trades.

    Waffling between a cash offer or a nicely sorted YZ125 trade right now.

    My mom had a red one of those when I was still living at home and going to college. I think I spent more time driving it than she did. I never cared much for the handling(much preferred and still prefer RWD) but it sure drew a lot of looks and college girls asking for rides.
