Click here for an VINData Motorcycle History Report on this 2004 Yamaha R1. With regards to the report, the seller states that, “my bike was stolen in the middle of the night in Pomona, California and local PD pulled over the thieves on the road as they had multiple motorcycles in the back of the truck. PD immediately impounded the truck with the motorcycles in the back. PD contacted me to inform me that my motorcycle was stolen and they delivered my R1 back to me the same day! It is not a salvage and never has been because it was found en route.”

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. Over 20 years later they’re still fantastic machines, so here’s your chance to relive the glory days.

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.

For more on the R1 and what made it special, check out this article on Sport Rider. Or for a buying guide geared towards used R1s (with notes like it’s “getting hard to find a clean one.”), check out this article on Motorcyclist magazine.

This R1 was featured on the cover of SuperStreet Bike Magazine in November 2012. It won 1st place at the International Motorcycle Show in San Mateo, California in December 2012 and was also shown at MotoGP Laguna Seca 2011-2012 two consecutive years in a row. It’s also won several awards as 1st place/best motorcycle at other motorcycle events.

Manufactured in January of 2004, this example is VIN: JYARN13Y74A000024. The seller purchased the bike new in 2004 from Lemon Grove Motorcycles in San Diego, California.

The odometer shows 1,260 miles; however, true mileage is unknown. Per the seller, “I replaced my motor with a 06 Yamaha R1 LE Graves Super Stock motor which I bought from a private seller. It was rebuilt by Chuck Graves and it had 5 track days on it. I put 1,260 miles on the motor itself since I bought it. I spoke to the guy I bought the motor from and he said the motor had 5 track days on it which he thinks is 500 miles. He also gave me the bill of sale. So, in total, the bike has seen 1,760 miles.”

The seller states, “The bike has no mechanical issues and I’ve done all the maintenance myself. It’s never been down and the forks and race bodywork have a clear bra protective coating.”

The seller has provided the following comprehensive list of all the tremendous upgrades on the bike. Please see the album up top for detailed photos.
