Yamaha Other description

Selling with regret.  This has been my favorite bike of all time.

Runs well.  Stock, un-molested, only imported into the US for 1 year. Only selling to get a new Yamaha FJR in 2017. I've put 11K miles on this bike since buying in 2012.

This bike has been a great back road and highway machine.

Needs: new fork seals, (there's a blemish on one of the forks above the seal), and possibly valve adjustment. 

The front suspension works ok however never tested the pressure to determine it's health.  

Handgrips and Tires are 3 years old, new plugs, wires, Fuel filter, and battery 2 years ago. Used Oil Pump installed last year, and inspected clutch which is in excellent condition. Rear shocks changed 2 years ago to a Progressive shock. 

Recommended to have the electrical grounds checked/repaired/cleaned, as randomly the bike will turn off at a stop light.  It's not happened in the last 5 months however I wanted to mention it.  Always runs while moving.

Since I've never cleaned the carbs, the new owner really should have this done to ensure the bike is reliable.  I've been religious on using gasoline cleaner to help keep the carbs clean.

 Plastic fenders are sun faded. Tank clean and original paint. Some scuffs on front fairing from previous owner and clear fairing part should be replaced (it's faded by sun/age with 1 crack). I've priced at around $120.  Missing battery strap. Stock exhaust carefully touched up with silver paint in areas, mostly coming from the engine. If I were rich, I would have re-chromed :/

All in all, a good 33 year old bike. Engine # 176 low production. 

Buyer will put Title in their name. Will assist with delivery pickup within a month time period.

The red engine cooling 'wing' was originally silver, fyi.  Also previous owner painted one of the side engine mounts red.  Look up this bike on YouTube to ensure you know the details of this very limited bike.  I'm happy to answer all questions quickly.  Happy Bidding.

Mileage may increase during auction as I use the bike on the weekends.  I reserve the right to end the auction early.

A crazy traveler on a Yamaha R1 will go to the North Pole

Mon, 23 Mar 2020

Lucassen is a man who can be surely called a maniac. He has been traveling for a long time. In 1995, he went on a three-year round-the-world route on a Honda Fireblade and covered over 160 thousand kilometers, and in 2001 he started on a Yamaha YZF-R1 and traveled about 250 thousand kilometers in five years.

Mon, 17 Feb 2014

He topped the timesheets on the first day of testing at Phillip Island, setting a time of 1:33.521, putting him at near lap-record pace. Second on the day was Dutchman Michael van der Mark, aboard the Pata Honda CBR600RR.
