2016 Yamaha FJR1300A

The long-running Yamaha FJR1300A gets some serious upgrades for 2016. The biggest news is the all-new six-speed transmission, replacing the old five-speed.

Helically cut, the transmission will also be smoother and quieter. Along with the new tranny, there’s a new clutch that is stronger, but with lighter springs, and slipper action.
