Description

Click here for an VINData Motorcycle History Report on this 1985 Yamaha RZ350. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

Only sold in the states from 84-85, the RZ350 was the first bike in the US to come equipped with catalytic converters and the first Yamaha street bike in the US to use a perimeter frame. It was also one of the last street-legal two-strokes available in this country. US models were specifically marketed as Kenny Roberts replicas with the legendary “speedblock” livery and Kenny’s signature on the front fairing.

Estimated production of these bikes was around 20,000 – accidents and time have worn down that number significantly. You’ll note the YPVS acronym on the engine: that stands for Yamaha Power Valve System, a computer-controlled valve that could adjust exhaust port timing. This enabled increased torque at low RPMs while maintaining horsepower higher up in the rev band.

For more on what made the RZ350 special, check out this profile on Cycle World – they said, “Our July 1984 cover bike rated a ‘Perfect 10’ on the fun scale.”

This example is VIN: JYA1EL000FA001445; Engine: 1EL001445. The seller inherited the bike from his father.

The odometer shows 887 miles.

Maintenance:
The seller states that he “had a certified tech change the oil, redo the carbs, and do a health check on the bike.”

Modifications:
Per the seller, this RZ350 is stock. He states that everything is original to the bike with the exception of the belly pan and the windscreen, which were both “pristine replacements sourced from another RZ”.

Inside of the tank:

It is riding on Yokohama tires that have aged out.

The sale includes two keys and the original California blue plate.

Cosmetic Blemishes: please see the album up top for all known cosmetic blemishes. Here is a selection:




Currently located in Tracy, California this Yamaha is offered on a clean California title with current registration through July 2025. Please note: The seller made registration current after photographing the bike. We apologize for any confusion. Have any RZ350 stories or questions about this listing?
