Pasha Afshar of Pasha Racing is well-known in the world of motocross, but he isn’t only interested in dirt. Here’s an impressive custom RD400F that he put together.

We could tell you all about how awesome RD400s are, but frankly this example (VIN: 2V0003789, Engine #:2V0003789) is so far from stock it doesn’t even matter.


The seller acquired it nine years ago and has covered roughly 200 miles. The odometer shows 17,443 miles.

Modifications:
The motor was built by Terry Varner of Varner Motorsports. It has “maybe 200” miles on it since the build. It features DG heads, VForce intakes, and UNI foam filters.

Brembo calipers and rotors, steel braided brake lines (front and rear), and a fork brace.

Everything is set off with a custom paint job. The Japanese writing on the tank translates to “400” and the Japanese on the helmet translates to “Yamaha”.

Steering damper.

Hagon shocks.

JL exhaust.

Cosmetic Blemishes:
There are no known cosmetic blemishes on the bike.

The seller notes that the tachometer needle broke off but the tach is still functional.

The sale includes a matching 6D helmet.

Inside of the tank:

It is riding on Avon Roadrider 90/90-18 MKII tires with date codes of 4212 and 4412.

The sale includes one key.

Currently located in Agua Dulce, California, this Yamaha is offered on a clean California title with registration current through August 2022.
