Yamaha Other description

Had to relist in eBay Motors thus the new listing. I have added more pics also.This is a gorgeous 1972 R5 Yamaha two stroke 350 in mandarin orange/black. It is hard to stress how complete and original this bike is. It was bought from an estate collection of motorcycles stored in a climate controlled shop. Mileage is 9983, last NC inspection in 1986 notes mileage at 9924.  I have all DMV docs supporting this as well as the original one owner title, service manual, original toolkit, original keyset. Grips, pegs, mirrors, bars, seat, gas cap all original. Tires look perfect, holding air, with no dryrot and could be original. Seat and seat pan is mint original. Forks unpitted and perfect, seals intact. One tiny underside dent on front fender, scratch on headlight housing, pitting on left header where gas leaked out (should come out with steel wool) is about all that detracts. The tank is shot, however, there was a used R5 tank with the bike and is included. No rust inside at all but needs paint/dent remedy. No battery, good kick compression, shifts up/down into gear, bike rolls smoothly, front and back brake grab. Carbs need going through, about what you'd expect from a 30 year layup. All I have done is handwashed it and put air in the tires, and pulled off the motor guard, windshield and sissy seat. I am quickly falling in love with this bike having ridden RDs. Bid now or I will restore and ride it! Local bidders come see it. I will provide pics and answer questions as needed. I will assist with loading onto your transport. Fair start price, no reserve.

Rumor Mill: Yamaha To Make R400 and R650

Thu, 25 Jul 2013

Yamaha is set to put into production two new sporty bikes — the R400 and R650 —  according to “Young Machine” a Japanese motorcycle magazine. If true, this would fill a huge void in the manufacturer’s beginner sportbike bike lineup. It would make sense, considering the success of Suzuki’s SV650 (which later morphed into the Gladius and is now the SFV650), Kawasaki’s Ninja 650 (ER-6 in other markets), and even Honda’s CBR500R.

2015 Yamaha FZ-07 Certified by California Air Resources Board

Tue, 20 May 2014

Although Yamaha has yet to announce the FZ-07 for American consumption, new documents from the California Air Resources Board lead us to believe it’s on its way to U.S. dealers. The FZ-07 was first revealed last fall at EICMA as the MT-07, which is the name it is being sold under in Europe, Japan and other markets.

Mon, 07 May 2012

Ryan Dungey scored his fourth win of the season but it was not enough to take second place in the points race behind champion Ryan Villopoto. That honor went to JGRMX Yamaha‘s Davi Millsaps who placed second to Dungey in the season-ending race at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas. Dungey took the holeshot and led every lap to take the win for Red Bull KTM.
