Click here for an CycleVIN Motorcycle History Report on this 2000 Yamaha R1. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

The 1990s were defined by three sportbikes – the Honda CBR900RR, the Ducati 916, and the Yamaha R1. Honda’s CBR900RR started the revolution by being 76 pounds lighter than its lightest competition. Soon after, Ducati released the 916. It was technically competent with fuel injection and even an adjustable steering head angle, but it’s best remembered just for being one of the most beautiful motorcycles of all time. In 1998, Yamaha released the R1 and wiped the floor with everyone else – it was the lightest and most powerful literbike available and you had to work hard to find a dealer with one in stock. Almost 20 years later they’re still fantastic machines, so here’s your chance to relive the glory days with a first-generation example of the breed.

The basic specifications are 150 horsepower, 419 pound dry weight, and a 2.96 second 0-60 time, per MCN. Those are all impressive numbers, but the design of the drivetrain is what made it all possible. Yamaha was able to make the engine/transmission much smaller by vertically stacking the transmission shafts. Further space was saved by putting the water pump inside the engine cases. The packaging let Yamaha shorten the wheelbase and still lengthen the swingarm, which made the R1 feel like a 600cc bike but with 1,000cc power.

Yamaha would go on to make 150 changes for the 2000 model year, including improved ergonomics, a wider powerband, and a 5-pound diet. The suspension was improved at both ends and the drivetrain got modified carbs, a taller first gear, and a titanium exhaust can.

Manufactured in May of 2000, this example is VIN: JYARN05E4YA004745. The seller acquired it last month from a local private party and he’s letting it go to fund improvements to his home.

During his ownership, the seller covered approximately 1,500 miles. The odometer shows 37,409 miles.

Modifications:
M4 exhaust, rear fender eliminator.

Aftermarket seat cowl (not real carbon fiber).

Tinted windscreen.

Aftermarket grips.

Flush mount front turn signals.

Cosmetic Blemishes:
The seller states that the “original stickers are cracked from old age and the seat has some small cracks.”

Mechanical Condition:
– No mechanical issues with engine or transmission/clutch assembly.
– Brakes/calipers/pads in good condition.
– Tires in good condition.
– Original plastics.
– Chain/sprockets in good condition, needs new master link.
– Right front fork seal is cracked and leaks a small amount.

Recent maintenance includes an oil and filter change (Yamalube 10W40), fuel filter, air filter, spark plugs, and brake fluid flush. “The maintenance was done since the bike was sitting for a while and I just wanted peace of mind.”

The sale includes a Haynes service and repair manual and the pictured rear wheel stand.

Currently located in Copperas Cove, Texas, this Yamaha is offered on a clean Texas title.
