1984 Yamaha FJ600 tire question

Hello, I need to replace the front tire on my Yamaha FJ600. The current tire size on it is 100/90-18. I have found a website that says it's supposed to have a 110/90-18 size tire, and another recommends the 90/90-18. I cant find a whole lot on the web about the FJ600 bike....so maybe someone in here...

1984 Yamaha FJ600 lower fairing

Hello guys,

Im sure some of you are FJ fans. I noticed a lot of the older FJ's with the lower fairings. I like the look, but cant find anything about how to obtain a lower fairing. Anyone here know? Thanks.

Yeah,

I practiced in a parking lot for about 45mins or so. Im pretty much golden now. I was doing everything mostly right, but not counterbalancing quite enough. So, I hit the center of town and did fine. But thank you guys for the advice.

Yeah I just re-read the MSF manual again. I DID take the MSF course, but not the BRC. Either way, I re-read the manual and it said just look where you want to go. I havent been doing that, so I will give it a shot.

Your brother will be issued the Beretta M9 9mm (92FS) as a standard issue carry. They are required to carry the M9, but exceptions have been made. However, I have no idea how he would find the loophole to carry a different gun. The Beretta M9 has proven its worth, he should be okay with it.

You shouldnt be afraid to carry a gun. My primary carry gun (with my permit, of course) is a H&K USPc .45 with the LEM trigger. No manual safety. You just pull and go. So no external safties anywhere. My secondary / summer carry is the Glock 19 in 9mm. Once again, no manual safety, the trigger is th...

I see. Well, thanks for serving the country, and I wish the best to you. I love the AR-15 rifles. I have built many, from Vietnam era M16 clones (semi auto of course! Colt SP's with triangular handguards, with and without teardrop forward assists), to the M4gery, civilian copies of the Military M4. ...

Everyone should exercise their 2nd ammendment right at some point or another. Do you trust the government to protect you and your family, or yourself ...

Keep in mind, thats a general diagram, not every gun will have all of those, but most of them. A couple things that arent mentioned there, is the magazine. It holds the ammunition, NOT a CLIP. It's a magazine. A Clip is different. Also, the chamber is under the ejection port. It's where the bullet a...
