What s the difference between 84 and 85. Other than paint change
12 months. Hope this helps
Minor changes to the Pistons, stiffer fork springs and carb jetting in some countries.
3 parts of bugger all. As far as I know it was just changing the stamp from a 84 to 85
As has already been said , absolutely nothing changed . Not sure where Palle got his info from but the engines have been the same throughout the range . As for the fork springs , they are shite in all of them unless you up grade yourself . The only place with different jetting is Switzerland , because of the climate . I am running swiss size jets here in the UK to get better fuel economy .
I have the info from Yamahas original parts catalog for the 84 and the 85. I assume that is a trust worthy source...
...and btw the engines have not been the same throughout the range. Changes were made to e.g. transmission, clutch cover, engine mounting brackets and other bits and pieces I can't remember right now. It is the same engine, but Yamaha did certainly make small improvements/adjustments during the FJ's lifetime. And of course not forgetting the change from 1100 to 1200 :-)
