Description

Click here for an CycleVIN Motorcycle History Report on this 1989 Yamaha FZR400. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

At a time when Japanese manufacturers were getting increasingly aggressive and race-oriented with their 400s to compete in their domestic Formula 3 championship, Yamaha introduced the FZR400 in 1986 as a bike to be enjoyed “on twisty public roads where the customers would actually be riding and enjoying them.” The US got it in 1988, and many riders preferred it over the bigger brother FZR600.

For more on the FZR400, check out this excellent profile on Yamaha’s site where they talk about the challenges of it being the first motorcycle to use “full-fledged radial tires” and how they fought the urge to implement quick steering like their competition to create something that consumers would enjoy more on the street.

This example (VIN: JYA3BFE06KA009362) was built in October of 1988.

It was originally purchased by a private party in Nebraska. The second owner had it jetted, put a pipe on it, and had teardrop rear turn signals installed. It had a couple of other owners before it ended up in the hands of collector Blair Neth in Nebraska. Blair also owned a Muzzy Raptor that we sold last year. After he passed away in an unfortunate motorcycle accident, the bike was sold to the current owner in 2016. The current owner brought the bike the bike back the stock – he used the pipe for a different race bike and had the holes in the rear fairing filled in, Adam can feel a slight bump underneath the stickers on the tail. In addition, the seller notes that this FZR400 is equipped with the rare rear cowl.

The odometer shows 2,599 miles.

Before it was listed for sale, the seller had us throw it up on our lift and perform a carb clean, chain clean, and a full detail. We also installed a new battery and flushed the brake fluid.

Cosmetic Blemishes:



The tire date codes are 2307 and 2606.

Currently located at our facility in Santa Monica, California, this FZR400 is offered on a clean Georgia title.
