Thank you.
Someone on a Fb forum has told me this colour was sold in US, Germany and Italy and maybe some other European countries, but not UK in 1986/7
The bike was imported into the UK in 1998 and speedo would suggest a European import.
Seems most likely.

Ian and I traveled quite a few of the same roads the last three days of September. We took off on a Tuesday afternoon and drove down I-80 to Hwy 20 then down hwy 20 to Fort Bragg and spent the night. The next morning we drove up 101 to 36 and 36 to Redbluff with many stops along the way. The third day we rode down 36 and took hwy 89 to Quincy then 70 to Hwy 395 and on back to Reno. It was a great trip lots of giant redwoods. I didn't see any other FJ's on the trip.

Hey Travis, Paul Lawson and I did that trip last year. We stayed in Santa Rosa, visited some family, then left early the next day rode 101 up to Lake Sonoma, then out Skaggs Springs road to Stewards Point, then Hwy 1 up thru Point Arena, Manchester, Fort Bragg then Leggett and back to the 101, spent the night in Garberville. It was an enjoyable ride. Astonishingly very little north bound traffic on Hwy 1. That is always a gamble on Hwy 1 with the RV’ers and trailers….I was surprised we got all the way up to Garberville in one long day.
Next day we went up the 101 to Fortuna, then back east on Hwy 36 all the way over the Sierra’s to Susanville then 395 back to Carson City.  We call it, the big loop…..

 I'm installing an XJR engine into one of my bikes. I've taken measurements from the standard FJ motor and marked the head fins of the new engine with the dimensions of the FJ head so I can shave the fins down to fit into my frame. It seems to me I have to shave five fins down on the back corners of the engine and two fins down on the front corners. I don't think I have to worry about the extra width of the fins
on the sides of the engine where the frame isn't close to the engine.
  Can any one out there who has one these engines in there bike post some pictures of the head and cylinder modifications that needed to be done ?

Hello,
If there's a Yamaha forum in Japan, you might be able to look for information on the 4CC version

Got the bike going today thank you. The problem was a heavily corroded plug connection to the pulse generator.
Im still gonna check everything you just mentioned though.  Thanks for all your advice!

The bike with the colors in the pick you have posted was not sold in europe at least not in Norway .I think it was only sold in usa.The KM speedo may have been swapped out from a european version on your bike.The european version had the color that you can se  in the avatar pic of my bike .Bikes after 1987 had different colors i think the 1988 came only in black. I had a 1985 FJ1100 that was blue and white and the 1200 also came in blue and white in europe and the 84 and 85 1100 i think also came in red and silver.

Hi,
Just buying a 1986 FJ1200 in the UK. It was a UK import in 1998 but not sure from where. Odo is in km, so I guess not the US.
Anyway, the colour scheme is red / white.....or if you look closely, its actually white / red because the colours are reversed from the standard red / white I normally see. I've looked for similar FJ1200s with this white / red scheme but can only find the red / white. (my bike has a white front fender so easy to see when you look)
Only other bikes I've seen with this white / red are FJ1100s.
Can anyone shed any light on this?
Was this a very early scheme for an FJ1200
I'm no expert, used to have an FJ1100 back in the day, so when I saw this beauty for sale in the UK I had to buy it. Just not sure about the colour scheme.
Thanks
Mike
