I did not know where to ask this question.
I just bought another 1984.  They are 412
VIN numbers apart and it got me wondering if
anyone knew how many FJ's were made each year?

Thanks

"Very dammed dismissive" ?
I am sorry if you feel that way.

This was my question:

"I did not know where to ask this question.

VIN numbers apart and it got me wondering if

I appreciate all the information on this site.

Sorry Alex, that was a quote from a old Moody Blues song….

On the list you can see that there were 7 different FJ models made in 1984 that were sent around the globe.

Which model were you interested in?

I apologize for being a bit harsh there.   flag_of_truce

Still, look at the “ interesting” list and add up the numbers.  Best info you are going to find without some kind of access (further into Yamaha’s system than Troy managed to gain access) to some OLD Yamaha production records - assuming they weren’t disposed of decades ago.  These bikes stopped production about the time the internet was becoming mainstream - pretty sure FJ production numbers historical artifacts haven’t risen to the level of public demand to make it profitable enough to be dug out and hosted somewhere.  Until that happens, 46,000 (if I remember correctly from earlier) for world wide production of the 1984 FJ1100 is about the best number “out there”.

I love this site.

It really is a digital camp fire.

Once I explored the numbers again a new picture has come clear.

Here are my annual numbers. You should please check these as I'm in the shed and had a few beers.
1984, 45293
1985, 23293
1986, 25293
1987, 30192
1988, 24293
1989, 13435
1990, 22091
1991, 33085
1992, 28192
1993, 0
1994, 2796
1995, who knows.
Total FJ's ever 495296, almost half a million FJ's.

By these numbers the 84 FJ was by far the most produced in one year. The 91 with the introduction of WPB was next   lol
The 87 in a massive variety of colours was third.

Pat, could it be that our Stormy Red and Quartz silver bikes where only made once in 1984 and that was it?

That is correct, only in ‘84 and only for the US models….All the rest of the ‘84’s were red and white.

Thanks for adding these numbers up for us…. good2

 Re: Your above statement on the 87’s, was in jest, correct? I’m only aware of the red over white colors.

87s barely sold here.  That's why we didn't get the 88s here. That's what I was told. Anyway.

Pat, there was also a white/red and a midnight blue/red in the 87's that I'm aware of. A few different combo's in mainland Europe than we had in the UK.

Not in jest mate, aside from the ambo, the 87s came in dark blue with a red stripe, red/white/blue, fridge white Smiley , and a couple of other variations of red that I can't remember now.
Of note, the 1100 also came in a variety of colours in different markets. Japan had just about all the different colours, whereas other markets were only given one or two choices, and others more. For example, France had the red/white/blue and the reverse of the red white, and a reverse of the red/silver.

Being simple souls here in Oz, in 84/85 we only had the ambo and were pretty happy with it.

It would be good if someone has the time to surf the web for some of these, or go back through some rally pics to see what we have.
