Yamaha RD350 description

I offer my 1983 Yamaha RD350 LC with YPVS engine for sale. The bike is in near perfect condition for a machine that is 36 years old and all paperwork is in order. I recently had the carbs done and they are nicely synchronized, although temperamental, for those who know these bikes and know what I am talking about. I had the cluster dials redone 146 km's ago. The rear shock has been overhauled and the expansion boxes were also recently de-coked. The engine is still as strong as a horse and if you are not careful, she will hang you up like a kite ! No work is needed to be done on her, she is in perfect running condition ... you can just get on and go for a Sunday afternoon drive and get LOTS of attention ! I am purely selling because I do not ride the bike often enough and she needs to give someone else the pleasure I had from her. This little bike is one of a kind and in her own class.

Pipewerx's new Slash Cut slip-ons

Fri, 16 Sep 2011 00:00:00 -0700

Pipe Werx, the British performance motorcycle exhaust company, has added a new product to its range – the Slash Cut Trim. Priced at only £79.95, delivered, the Slash Cut Trim easily bolts on with its supplied mounting clamp and spring to the catalytic converter in place of the heavy standard exit pipes on Yamaha’s R6 (2006-2011) and Suzuki’s GSX-R600/750 (K8, K9, L0). With the main aim of reducing weight and improving aesthetics on these machines, the Slash Cut Trim does give a marginal increase of throttle response and exhaust note.

MotoGP to Re-Visit Rookie Rule

MotoGP organizers are re-opening discussion for the series’ rookie rule which prevents new riders from entering the series with factory teams. Introduced following the 2009 MotoGP season, the rule was designed to give satellite teams the chance to field young up-and-coming talents  they otherwise wouldn’t have been able to sign. The theory was the rule would protect the satellite teams and spread out the talent pool.

2012 Yamaha YZF-R1 Video Featuring Ben Spies

Mon, 26 Sep 2011 00:00:00 -0700

Yamaha has released a new video of the 2012 YZF-R1 featuring MotoGP racer Ben Spies taking the new bike with Yamaha’s 50th Anniversary limited edition livery to a track day. Spies who won the 2009 World Superbike Championship on a Yamaha R1 so he is obviously very familiar with the sportbike which will now be available with a seven-level traction control system. Spies appears a little bored as the other riders learn the layout of the track and when they get to the track, he calmly waits while they take off around him before dropping the hammer and showing them how it’s done.
