COLD START/RUNNING VIDEO
Click here for an CycleVIN Motorcycle History Report on this 1992 Yamaha FZR600 Vance & Hines. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.
In 1992, Yamaha offered a limited edition replica of their Vance & Hines AMA Supersport bike. The model celebrated the two brands’ partnership in the 600 class:
Exact production numbers are hard to pinpoint, but Yamaha took roughly 500 of their FZR600s and adorned them with a striking magenta and yellow paint job that emulated the race bike.
They also equipped it with a Vance & Hines exhaust, of course!
Otherwise, however, Yamaha kept the bike stock. The frame, engine, transmission, and suspension were all standard FZR600 components. As such, you got the same Deltabox steel, 91-horsepower four-cylinder, six-speed gearbox, and 41mm forks. Stopping power came from a pair of 298mm discs up front and a single 214mm disc at the rear.
This example is VIN: JYA3HHE00NA039018. The seller acquired the bike six months ago through an Iconic auction.
The odometer shows 19,381 miles.
The seller reports that he purchased the bike “looking to do a complete factory restoration.” He “only got as far as putting factory brake lines on and rear passenger foot brackets and pegs,” but he “started accumulating parts for the factory restoration but then never went back to it.”
This FZR600 appears to be stock.
