1989 Yamaha YSR50


Reserve Bike With Non-Refundable Deposit



Click here for an VINData Motorcycle History Report on this 1989 Yamaha YSR50. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

The Yamaha YSR50 was the most common of the rare 50cc sportbikes that came from Japan in the late 80s and early 90s. An instant classic, the YSR50 was always street legal and always seems to put a smile on the face of riders and spectators.

Built to look like a mini RZ500, the YSR50 also featured mini performance. The 49.3cc two-stroke engine was capable of pushing the bike up to 38 miles per hour, but companies like Team Calamari have been making stock performance numbers useless with years of aftermarket parts and performance modifications if you are so inclined.

Manufactured in August of 1988, this example is VIN: JYA3FDN07KA006141. The seller acquired the bike seven years ago. He is the second owner.

During his ownership, the seller has covered approximately 50 miles. The odometer shows 886 kilometers (550 miles).

The seller reports that this YSR50 is the product of a full restoration. He’s included the below list of services performed/parts installed:

– New engine top end
– Carb serviced/new fuel line & filter
– New air filter
– Polished Team Calamari Racing dual stinger exhaust
– Brembo front big brake kit & polished rotor
– New upper & lower aluminum fork clamps

– New controls
– New chain & sprocket
– Tank & lower fairing repainted
– New decals
– Forks/swingarm/footpegs/Kickstarter/shifter have all been repainted or powdercoated.
– All hardware has been cleaned up

He adds that the “bike is real nice, turnkey. The new engine runs perfectly & tops out at 58mph, which is pretty quick for a YSR50. CA titled in my name & paperwork is current. This is a solid YSR that needs nothing!”
