Yamaha Other description

THIS IS A UNIQUE 74 YAMAHA RD 350. I WAS 18 IN 1974. I LOVED MOTORCYCLES BUT UNFORTUNATELY, I COULDN'T AFFORD MUCH. WHEN I WAS OLDER, I DECIDED I'D GET ONE AND TRICK IT OUT JUST LIKE THE GUYS DID BACK THEN. THIS IS WHAT I DID.

1.     BEFORE I RIDE ANY OLD BIKE, I PUT ON THE BEST MODERN TIRES AVAILABLE ($275)
2.     NEW SEAT COVER AND FOAM, AND HAD THE STAINLESS POLISHED ($200)
3.     DG PIPES ($325)
4.     CARRERA REAR SETS ($300+)
5.     AFTER TWO YEARS OF LOOKING, I ACTUALLY FOUND A SET OF SHEET METAL PAINTED IN 1974. IT IS JUST THE COOLEST 2-TONE METAL FLAKE WITH A FADE. THE PAINT HAS A COUPLE OF SCRATCHES OF THE
        TANK (400.00)
6.     I FINALLY FOUND A PERFECT NEW FRONT FENDER ($135)
7.     PREMIX 
8.     FRONT FORKS REBUILT 
9.     I WANTED SOME GOOD QUALITY SHOCKS. I TALKED TO THE ENGINEERS AT WORKS PERFORMANCE. THEY DESIGNED A SLIM LINE SET PERIOD CORRECT AS POSSIBLE. THEY POWDER COATED THEM IN ALL
       BLACK AS OPPOSED TO THE NORMAL CHROME ($425. OUCH)


LASTLY, THE ODOMETER ON THE MOTORCYCLE WAS NOT CORRECT WHEN  I PURCHASED THE MOTORCYCLE. WHEN I BOUGHT IT, THE READING WAS 5,000 MILES AND IT WAS NOT WORKING. I FOUND A VERY NICE USED ONE ON EBAY.

WELL, I HOPE MY BABY FINDS A GOOD HOME. I REALLY DON'T WANT TO PART IT OUT IT BUT I WILL IF IT DOESN'T SELL FOR A FAIR PRICE.

EICMA 2013: 2014 Yamaha MT-07 And MT-09 Street Rally

Mon, 04 Nov 2013

Yamaha teased us with the “Rise Up Your Darkness” campaign, first introducing the FZ-09 (called the MT-09 in Europe) and its three-cylinder engine packaged in a naked frame. Now Yamaha has introduced the next motorcycle in the Darkness collection, the MT-07, effectively the MT/FZ-09′s little brother. Designed to “bring fun, affordability and enjoyment back to the street,” the MT-07 is powered by a brand new, 689cc parallel-Twin with 270-degree crank incorporating Yamaha’s “crossplane philosophy” of developing linear torque for smoother power application.

Rossi 'training' at his MotoRanch

Mon, 30 Jan 2012

Like Kenny Roberts, Valentino Rossi has got his own ranch where he has built his own private motocross track and dirt oval. The above YouTube video shows Rossi training on the flat-track circuit that makes up his 'MotoRanch' located near his home town of Tavullia. He's shown riding a Yamaha, but that's probably because Ducati don't have themselves a scrambler.

Wood-Rotax SJ676 Grand Prix

Wed, 22 Jan 2014

Until yesterday I'd never even heard of this bike let alone seen one. I didn't know anything about it. I still don't, really but I dug up these words on the bike and thought I'd share them.
