Yamaha Other description

The 1990 Yamaha FZR750RR, otherwise known as the OWO1 was intended to do battle with the RC30, Ducati 851, ZXR750 and GXSR750's of the day that were being turned out by their respective factories in limited numbers to compete and win the World Super Bike Series. The stock bike was beyond expensive new back in the day. Then there was a Factory Race Kit which would set you back almost the cost of a complete motorcycle.The OWO1 was a designation that the factory gave their FZR750RR after the bike was turned into 1 of their "factory race bikes". These bikes were a homologation special, meaning there were a specific number of FZR750RR's made that particular year for world wide racing needs. They reportedly produced 121 horsepower from the factory before any Race Kit parts were installed. This particular bike has an interesting history. It was 1st sold new in the early 90's by a dealer in Mandan, North Dakota. Before even leaving the dealership, the bike was rolled into the shop and a Factory Race Kit was installed. The parts that we can see are the Rear Swing Arm, Quick Release Rear Axle, Dry Clutch, Magnesium Roller Flat Slide Mikuni Carburetors, Ohlin's forks and Ohlin's Race Rear Shock. A set of Marchesini Wheels were installed with Brembo Calipers. Included with the YCE kit were valves, crankshaft, cams, pistons, rods and a Short Ratio Gear Box. We have boxes and parts that make it more then plausible that these parts were installed at that time. The bike definitely has a Short Ratio Transmission that is the only way the Dry Clutch can be installed. The current owner has had the bike since the late 90's.The bike was immediately unridable. The Carburetion was terrible and the bike ran incredibly rich when it was not hitting a flat spot. The owner spent time and money trying to resolve the problem and never did, selling the bike to it's present owner with less then 500 mis on it. The original owner stated that he had purchased every possible Yamaha Race Part made for the bike and had them installed by the dealer or were in boxes that came with the bike. An accurate inventory was not made at the time and receipts for the parts and work have wandered off. The only evidence of those parts is what can be seen looking at the bike or the parts that the present owner has in his possession. A set of Marchesini wheels were installed that did not include a speedometer drive so an accurate statement of mileage is impossible. The stock wheels are not included. There is no absolute way to verify the work and parts history other then to examine the bike's condition and it's pieces.The bike was rolled into the shop and until 2 yrs ago was not ridden or fired. Not being timid, the new owner attempted jetting for the Mikunis unsuccefully, finally replacing them with Keihin Flat slides 2yrs ago which he could get to work satisfactorily. The bike runs good and is a surprise for how strong it pulls. Along the way a pre-owned Race Body work was located and purchased, but not installed, which is included with the bike. The bike has never been to the track, been raced or dropped. The selling price is $36,495.

R1 noise, bike porn and a quick lap

Tue, 24 Apr 2012

Trawling the internet for a sound clip of the Crossplane Crank Yamaha R1 on full chatter, I came across this: a few fast laps on board with New Zealand Superbike racer Tony Rees as he works the CABS Throttle Blipper on his 2011 R1. (Skip to 7:35 for the fast ones.) CABS is a system used by Superbike teams that makes use of the R1’s digitally controlled throttle. When you change up a gear, the bike blips in the perfect amount of revs to save time on track and make downshifts as quick and easy as clutch-less upshifts.
