1985 Yamaha FJ600 (pics!) - First bike?
Hi all! Here's a perfect first sportbike for the new rider.
1986 Yamaha FJ600. This was purchased last summer at Burnaby Kawasaki for my wife, but she only rode a handful of times, so it's got to go.
- 35,000 kms
- fully serviced by BK
- carb rebuild at time of purchase by BK
- new gas tank (old one leaked), professionally painted black
- new battery
- Yoshimura exhaust professionally repacked and sprayed black
This bike is great fun. Decent power, and awesome handling and braking. Very upright "sporty" seating position is much more forgiving than modern bikes. It's loud, but not obnoxious thanks to the repacking of the exhaust can. Everything works and this bike DOES NOT LEAK anything. It goes through some oil, but any 20 year old bike will. Tires and brakes have tons of life left. There's even a gas gauge!

Just a wee BUMP today. Had a few lookers, but no takers yet. STILL a great bike for some lucky sportbiker.
