Elec­tric sus­pen­sion for Yamaha FJR1300E

Old Bike Australasia - - BUZZ BOX -

Yamaha’s big-sell­ing tourer, the FJR1300, is now avail­able with on-board elec­tron­i­cally ad­justable sus­pen­sion to suit both the load car­ry­ing re­quire­ments and road sur­face con­di­tions. A han­dle­bar mounted switch al­lows the rider to tog­gle be­tween four load set­tings, with a fur­ther choice of soft, stan­dard or hard damp­ing for each set­ting. As the sys­tem is linked to both the front and rear sus­pen­sion sys­tems, any al­ter­ation is made with the damp­ing and preload on both front and rear sys­tems to finely bal­ance the mo­tor­cy­cle. The new model also has upside-down front forks with in­de­pen­dent damper mech­a­nisms, split­ting the com­pres­sion and damp­ing ad­just­ments be­tween the two fork legs.
