The best sport-touring bike ever made. Yamaha has made the FJR1300 since 2001 in Europe and brought it to the United States in 2003. The 2018 model retails for $17,999, the automatic version is a little less expensive. I'm selling my 2003 model for $4,250. The price is negotiable and I'm willing to reduce the selling price for some of its accessories that I can remove and use on my next bike. The first items I could use on my next bike is the handlebar helmet-lock bar end plugs and the V-Strom hand guards and the GPS RAM ball mount. 
The FJR's best features are: 1) Motorize adjustable windshield. 2) Reliability, 26,600 miles between value clearance maintenance checks. 
The FJR is not a beginner's motorcycle, they produce ~145hp at the crank (as per Yamaha). Very fast, and very fun. FJR1300 bikes are the best at both a daily commuter and iron-butt association rally's where riders put on a 1000 miles in a 24-hour period. My body is too old for a iron-butt rally's so, it's been a fantastic reliable sport-touring bike for me, since September 2012 when I purchased it. 
My FJR is not stock, if you bought the accessories new and had a dealer installed them, it might cost nearly $3000+. Several of these accessories and modifications are mentioned on many of the FJR1300 web-site forums. Some FJR owners on the forums have more than one FJR, and some have well over 200,000 miles.
Here are some of the accessories which are on my FJR starting with probably the most valuable and/or the most difficult to acquire. 
· Ceramic coated exhaust head pipes, which includes welded-on fittings for CO2 test and exhaust tuning for each cylinder. Rarely found, due to the labor cost involved to produce. These were done by the previous owner, a diesel mechanic. To reproduce these would cost over $1000. 
· Wilbers rear shock with remote hydraulic preload mounted adjuster. Unlike OEM shocks, these are rebuildable. Wilbers shocks are known for their aftermarket BMW shocks, and they are expensive.
· DynoJet Power Commander III. One of the best accessories available to get rid of many of the EPA items on any modern motorcycle. It was also installed by the previous owner. 
· Givi Maxia model extra large trunk with installed additional brake lights, passenager back pad, and the Givi top rack for the trunk. The trunk is large enough to hold two full face helmets, and the rack is great to quickly tie a jacket too. These trunks are easy to install, but very expensive to purchase. My Givi trunk has over $200 in additional manufacturer items as mentioned. Also, it's key-lock is the same as the motorcycle ignition key. 
· Steel braided clutch and front brake lines. After purchasing them try getting all these hydraulic lines installed for $300. The advantage, you don't worry about them cracking like rubber lines nor do they flex like rubber brake lines, when brakes are applied. 
· Aftermarket twin Magnum Blaster electric horns and relay, for safety to be heard when needed. I had another set of these on a older ST1100 when I sold it and got this FJR1300.
· Frame sliders, and a carbon fiber alternator cover. Great insurance, which you hope to never use.
· Two aux 12V (Jastek powerlet or BMW style) output ports for electrical accessories. A great addition to run GPS and a radar detector. One is fused to the battery and the other to a master fuse block under the seat.
· A six port fused block mounted under the seat for quickly adding additional electrical accessories. 
· Radiator guard. Protects the expensive radiator from rocks. 
· Chrome exhaust burn shield protectors.
· Fastener-free Fenda Extenda front fender extender.
· K&N Air Filter.
· Yamaha FZ1 mirrors. These provide better rear views than the original FJR model mirrors.
· Kisan tail light modulator. Excellent to alert motorist before they rear-end you.
· Datel voltmeter installed in the fairing for quick battery voltage reading.
· Stealth (brand name) reflective safety tape kit installed for increased nighttime visibility. 
· Vista-Cruise throttle lock, for touring.
· 90 degree tire valve stems. Makes adjusting and checking tire pressures much easier.
Maintenance done during the Winter after I bought it in 2012: 
Valve clearance checked, spark plugs replaced, air filter service and all fluids changed. 
Maintenance done in 2013:
Front steering head bearings repacked. Changed engine oil & filter.
Maintenance done in 2014: All fluids changed.
Maintenance done in 2016: 
Air filter serviced, engine oil & filter and rear shaft drive fluid changed prior to transporting the FJR to Gainesville.
Maintenance performed in May 2017: 
New engine oil and filter.
New tires and balancing beads installed by Gainesville Ride Now prior to a 3000+-mile 12-day camping trip to Washington DC and the Blue Ridge Parkway.
Maintenance performed in September/October 2017:
Intake/Exhaust valves clearance were checked and all were within OEM specification. Clearances documentation sheet is available. 
Coolant Anti-freeze drained, and properly blown out and replaced. NOT just a simple drain and fill job. 
Replaced spark plugs. Old spark plugs are available for viewing.. 
Brakes and clutch hydraulic fluid replaced. 
Next services to be accomplished: 
Change engine oil & filter, change shaft drive fluid, change tire valve stems during the next tire installation. Included with the sale are new front & rear brake pads, which haven't been installed.
Additional modifications, accessories included:
· Disabled windscreen auto-retract. When the engine is shut off, the windscreen doesn't reset to the lower position. One of the first mods most FJR owners do.
· Windshield angle adjusting blocks. This mod changes the slope of the windscreen.
· Cooling fan connected to the voltage regulator.
· New Bike Master AGM battery installed September 2015.
· Bagster fuel tank cover and tank bag, the one installed came from my ST1100. Doesn't fit like the model design for the FJR, but it works, and it covers up a foul baseball ding in the top of the tank. These tank covers are rather expensive from the French manufacturer.
· Bike Master hand grips.
· Paint matched saddle bag mount covers, for when riding without saddle bags. 
· Matching rider's jacket and pants.
· Original Yamaha Owners Manual, Shop Manual and Yamaha OEM tool kit, and Parts List.
Why an early FJR over the newer FJR, simply the electronic modifications which are capable in the original U.S.A. FJR to match the European FJR electronics to adjust the fuel injector map for each individual cylinder. Each year Yamaha worked to lock out these features and I believe after 2004 you were no longer capable to modify the FJR electronic as I know of.  

If your ready for a test ride, both cash, motorcycle endorsement and a signed responsibility release are required for a test ride. If the Craigslist ad is posted, it's still available for sale. It's available for a test ride until November 30th. After November 30th, it goes back into storage.
