2017 Yamaha FJR1300ES on www.Totalmotorcycle.com
SUPERSPORT TOURING AT ITS VERY BEST...
The 2017 FJR1300ES features a 6-speed transmission, lean angle sensitive cornering headlight system, plus electronically adjusted suspension.
Famous for outstanding performance and reliability, the FJR1300 series has a reputation that is second to none in the sport touring world. Last year, we revised the transmission, with new gear ratios and a 6th speed plus a slipper clutch with assist, active cornering lights and full LED lighting. FJR series offers more comfort, performance and value than ever.
1298cc, DOHC, 16-valve, liquid-cooled inline-four engine delivers serious power and torque for an unequalled spread of muscle over a wide RPM range. 6-speed transmission provides effortless cruising. Red line is a low 9,000 rpm for incredible reliability.
Comfort and convenience at your finger tips. The FJR1300ES adds another level of sophistication with the latest electronically-adjustable suspension system - allowing you to modify your preload and damping settings with a flick of a switch.
Quick-release luggage mounts mean fast removal of the 30 litre colour matched
hard saddlebags. Small item storage compartment is located in the upper left
side of the fairing. Inside this compartment is a 12 volt 30 watt DC power
outlet for added convenience.
2017 Yamaha FJR1300ES www.Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

Lightweight, cast aluminum swingarm.
swingarm incorporates the shaft drive into its left side to reduce unsprung weight
reduced unsprung weight helps to optimize suspension & handling
Key chassis geometry figures include:
caster angle = 26 degrees / trail = 109mm
front - rear weight distribution is 51.9% front & 48.1% rear
Electronically adjustable 43mm KYB inverted forks offer 135mm (5.4") of wheel travel.
Electronically adjustable Monocross rear suspension with 125mm (4.8") of wheel travel.
"Linked" electronic suspension asks the rider to choose from one of four presets for "load" (solo / solo & luggage / dual / dual & luggage). Once the load setting is chosen, the system automatically adjusts both the front & rear damping rates based on the load setting. If the rider wishes to "tune" the settings further, there are 3 "main" settings (soft / std / hard) to choose from. Within each of these 3 main settings, there are another 7 "fine tuning" settings available, for a total of 21 damping settings. The "load" setting must be chosen / adjusted with the unit stopped but running, while all other tuning can be done "on the fly". All adjustments are done via buttons on the L.H.S. switch gear. Suspension setting menu & adjustments are viewed in the DOT matrix section of the instrument panel. A duty cycle motor controls the "load" settings while stepping motors vary the oil flow rate in the forks & shock. The adjustable design allows a rider to easily tailor suspension settings to match load & road conditions.
Special "SCU" or suspension control unit controls the electronic suspension.
Dual 320mm front discs squeezed by Nissin 4-piston calipers with ABS & UBS.

caliper is mounted on the underside of the swingarm to reduce torque action for superior suspension performance
Front & rear brakes feature Yamaha's latest anti-lock brake (ABS) & variable unified brake (UBS) technology.
ABS braking offers excellent control under hard braking or braking on wet or slippery surfaces
controlling ECU & hydraulic unit are combined into a single compact unit allowing for mass centralization & reduced weight
when ABS system senses impending wheel lock-up (via active type wheel sensors) it regulates the hydraulic brake pressure to the point just before the wheel(s) lock-up
UBS system "unifies or links" the front & rear brakes when brakes are applied
applying front brake will engage the UBS & to a varying degree will apply some rear brake force
applying rear brake will activate rear brake & to a varying degree will apply some front brake force
linked brakes may improve stopping power by accurately balancing front & rear brake pressures according to natural weight transfer
Lightweight cast-aluminum 3-spoke wheels.
lightweight design reduces unsprung weight for excellent suspension & handling performance

other DOT matrix display functions include grip heater status & gear position indicator
full range of warning & indicator lights including cruise & traction control status
speedo can be changed to display either kilometers or miles per hour
Immobilizer ignition system.
reduces the possibility of "ride away" theft
system must recognize the "coded ignition key" in order for the unit to start
if the immobilizer ignition does not recognize the key (or a thief's screwdriver or other type of "jimmy tool") the bike will not start even if the ignition is turned or forced into the on position
if the system does not recognize the coded chip in the ignition key, it will not allow the ignition system, fuel pump or starter motor to function.
FJR features convenient "one-key" system to operate all keyed devices on the bike including the main ignition, steering lock, saddlebags & optional top case locks.
variable heated grips 10 levels of heat adjustment
5-position adjustable front brake & clutch levers
