2013 FJR-1300A Engine Management Systems?
Prospective owner questions.
Does the 2013 year meet the following criteria ?
* Electronic Fuel Injection
* Electronic Idle Air Control
* Wide Band Oxygen Sensor
* Stock Iridium or Platinum Spark Plugs
What years (if any) meet the above criteria?
My 2008 Yamaha YZF-R6S has mechanical idle air control and lacks an oxygen sensor. Stock plugs are also copper. Absolutely amazing performance, but these older engine management technologies translate to more tinkering and less seat time. Newest models use newer engine management technologies including throttle by wire, but they are also considerably smaller than the older generation. (saves weight) So that leaves me looking to try the FJR series. It also has a tiny battery which means it's an unreliable crank as you get down into the low 20s Fahrenheit. Basically it's not designed for Winter; not a critique, just a fact. I LOVE my 2nd-Gen R6, first motobike, been on it for several years and intend to keep it.
