2016 FJR1300AK

Here's my 2016 Yamaha FJR1300A (yes, it's an A, not an ES)

I drove out from Texas to South Carolina to buy this bike from Ivan himself. This was his personal FJR. It was in stunning condition with only 2k miles on it, and naturally... "Ivan'ized".

2. FJR ES forks, fender, triples, brake lines and misc hardware to swap from A RSU forks to USD forks. Inside are Traxxion Dynamics AK-20 cartridges with 1.10 springs. In back is a Penske 8987 triple adjustable shock with a spring setup perfectly for my weight. I always LOVED the look of the ES bike but wasn't fond of the limited electronic suspension so this was my solution. I think I'm one of two guys with USD forks on an A bike. About 54 OEM Yamaha parts to make this conversion happen... bought all the parts new.
V-Stream tall windshield, Yamaha aluminum rack, PIAA dual horns. Ivan added the Leo Vince slip-on's and those are my preferred pipes so it was meant to be mine.

4. Favorite thing about this bike is how smooth and effortless it is to get up to speed. Between a perfect tuning, amazing suspension and that cruise control, I'm 30 states into my lower 48 state tour, and just started in April of this year.

Since the rules state that it has to be in it's current state, see Ivan's page to see what it looked like (for those that still think it's an ES).... Ivan's Performance Products
