You are bidding on my awesome 1978 Yamaha YZ400.  This bike is a complete frame up restoration.  The engine has been disassembled and all parts inspected and replaced where needed.  The bike is ready to race, period.  AHRMA ready for you, or, just ride it in the woods.  It was never raced and only ridden as a woods bike so it is very nice.  The power is amazing and this bike is for the experienced rider only!!  Full bore racing grunt.  Your friends will eat rocks!!   You can do your research on these 400's and you will find that the '78 was quite the bike to race back in the day.  I remember, because I raced one.  Not this one but I can tell you that if you are looking to get the holeshot, then this YZ400 has the balls to take you to the front if can ride it.  I have a supertrap muffler on it for woods riding which you can remove if so desired.  I would also put different tires on it for racing MX, depending on the track, as tires can be the difference between winning and losing on any sunday.    ALSO INCLUDED IS MY ORIGINAL RACING JERSEY FROM 1978 AND MY YAMAHA RACING HAT I WORE BACK THEN.  SEE PICTURE.  My Reserve is very reasonable for what this bike is.  Buy it and race it.

Back in the day, the All Japan 500cc Championship at Tsukuba

Fri, 24 Jun 2011

This ‘you tube’ gem sent to me recently brought back some funny memories from the scary but incredibly exciting days of 500cc two stroke racing. This particular race was the final round of the All Japan 500cc Championship at Tsukuba Circuit where I enjoyed a head to head battle with national hero Tadahiko Taira. Yamaha’s favourite son at the time, ‘tie wrap’ as we liked to call him, was taller and better looking than most Japanese riders (maybe a war baby?) and went on to win nearly everything in Japan during his career.

Lorenzo And Rossi Unveil Yamaha MotoGP 2014 Livery

Fri, 17 Jan 2014

Yamaha’s official MotoGP outfit unveiled the team’s official 2014 livery in front of a packed audience in Jakarta, Indonesia. The team’s two factory riders, Jorge Lorenzo and Valentino Rossi, were on hand to proudly showcase their YZF-M1 motorcycles. As expected, blue, Yamaha’s factory color, plays a major role in the color scheme, but unlike last year where it was the dominant color, it is equally offset by contrasting white swaths on the upper fairing, fuel tank, and throughout the lower fairing.

2013 Yamaha XJ6, XJ6 Diversion Updated for European Market

Thu, 30 Aug 2012

Yamaha has revealed an updated version of its XJ6 including its faired Diversion and Diversion F versions for the European market. The XJ6 models were first introduced in Europe in 2009 as the latest member of Yamaha‘s XJ series and a replacement for the FZ6 as a middleweight all-arounder. In recent years however, Yamaha Motor USA decided to keep the slightly sportier FZ6R in its lineup and pass on the XJ6 models.
