Yamaha 2005 FJR1300 Orders/Deliveries
(USA & Canada)

Last updated: 5-Feb-2005

Yamaha USA's Priority Delivery Program for 2005 models initally ran from February 6th to April 30th, 2004. Then, apparently in an attempt to bring the FJR1300 deliveries into sync with the R1's and other road bikes, there was another PDP starting in December of 2004 running until Yamaha took 1,500 orders. These bikes will also be '2005' models and will begin showing up in March, '05.

The PDP for '06 bikes will begin in the Fall of 2005, with deliveries commencing in March of '06. This has the beneficial side-effect of bringing the US/Canadian spec bikes into sync with the rest of the world, model-year wise.

Unlike previous years (see 2002 and 2003) there was no printed PDP form to fill out. In 2004, you went to your Yamaha dealer, gave them a $500 deposit, and they used the Internet and the YDS (Yamaha Dealer System) to register you online in realtime.

The data below is provided for the use and benefit of current and future US and Canadian FJR1300 owners. If you have an "05" FJR on order (or have taken delivery) and wish to have your information added here, just send the data for each column below in an email message to HMarc, and he will add your data here. There was a similar page the last two years for the 2003 and 2004 models.

You might also wish to peruse the Yamaha FJR1300 Registry where you can read what hundreds of current FJR owners have to say about their bikes. Note: some VINs may be duplicates due to there being about 11 (or more) different VIN prefixes being used for Canadian (JYARP07N*3A) , California (JYARP07Y*3A) and 49-states (JYARP07E*3A) model FJR1300s.

[Note ¹] — Entries of buyers who didn't participate in the Priority Delivery program but were able to buy bikes from those who did, or off the showroom floor at a Yamaha dealer somewhere.

[Note ²] — Entries of buyers who did have PDP orders but ended up with a different FJR than the one they ordered.

What the fields in the table above mean:


Paid Dealer The date you paid your $500 to your dealer. This isn't nearly as significant a date as the date the dealer entered your order into the YDS.
Entered in YDS When the PDP data was typed into the Yamaha Dealer System by the dealer who took your order. Make sure you stand there while the dealer does this. The date and time it is done determines when you get your FJR1300. Sooner is better!
Month Delivery Promised The month you were "promised" in the YDS system, shown in bold red if the info came from the YDS after you got a letter from Yamaha HQ confirming your order. Last year you had to have your dealer use the Yamaha YDS Website and find out what month you are predicted to get delivery.

The pre-order window is about 3 months wide. It will take at least that many months (probably more) to deliver all the bikes ordered. In 2002 and 2003, the folks who ordered in the first 2 weeks of the program started getting their bikes about the middle of July. The folks who waited until the last week of the order period didn't get their bikes until November or later.


Interesting info about the last two year's PDP

Best estimates are that in 2002 something like 1,650 "2003" model FJRs were imported to the USA, and at least 60 (maybe more) imported into Canada. Last year, in 2003, the number of FJRs imported was probably more like 2,450.
