Question about 1986 Yamaha FJ 1100

Yamaha FJ 1100

I have a 2007 Yamaha FJ 1100 and I think it's a great bike if your into the cruiser thing. Too old (fat)for sport bikes and too young to stop riding altogether.

Nice thing about the Roadliner, if a car does hit you, it'll probably bounce off with major damage.

Make sure the new battery has fresh acid in the cells. I did the same thing with a battery I bought and forgot to add the acid and charge the battery up so my bike didn't start. Got distracted with the wife's todo list....

Slow down - buy a sports bike - a cruiser is not a sports bike- buy a motorcycle and get off the scooter.

There really is no way enough info to even try to answer your question.

Is this a good frist bike to learn how to ride?


hi,generally speaking yes,they have a very forgiving engine with gentle power delivery(no sudden surges of power like sports bikes)they are also very comfy to ride and yet even though it is only a 250 it will cruise quite comfortably at highway speed..enjoy..hope this helps

Can`t get netural


Yep I can help.The clutch has about 6-8 or more plates in it.When they are not used they can stick together.It needs to be taken apart,cleaned and put back together in exactly the same order.Instead of all the plates slipping,only a few spin.This goes into the g/box and makes it spin when it should be stopped.The fj have a great clutch in them.This may really help your problem.

To me, the best thing about the SG is that it gets you on a Big Twin (vs. a Sportster), and you can modify it any way you want. I bought mine in 2002, and since then I have lowered it, chromed out the engine, chrome handlebar covers, put a mid-glide front end on it, etc. This winter I am putting on new handlbars, I am getting a custom paint job, a new rear end, an all chrome wide-glide front end, and a digital speedo. It has taken me 6 years to finally get it where I want it, but I am glad I'm on a Twin Cam. As far as braking and handling, the SG is really good. Not as good as a sportbike, obviously, but you should find it to be a good ride. I'd recommend test riding one. Many dealers have demo days, pay attention for the next time your local has one, and get out on one, you'll love it.
