Click here for an CycleVIN Motorcycle History Report on this 1993 Yamaha FZR1000. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

First unveiled at the 1986 Cologne Motorcycle Show, the Yamaha FZR1000 was a watershed model that marked the dawn of the tuning fork company’s first foray into big-bore four-stroke superbikes. The predecessor to potent two-stroke models like the parallel-twin RD350 and V4 RD500, the “Fizzer” as it was affectionately known, entered production in 1987 as an advanced water-cooled, 989cc, four-stroke inline-four with DOHC, a five-speed transmission, and the same 20-valve (5-per) setup first seen on the FZ750 in ’85.

With 130 hp on tap and a curb weight of a bit over 500 lbs, the first generation FZR1K — also called the “Genesis” — was capable of a 155 mph top speed. Interestingly, this same five-valve engine architecture would become the basis of Yamaha’s V8 Formula One car for the 1989 series. The FZR1000’s engine was also later utilized by Bimota in the YB10. Though the company came out swinging with the first generation, Yamaha heavily revamped the model in ’89 with what was almost an entirely new design, sharing only a small number of elements with the outgoing version.

This example is VIN: JYA3LKC0XPA024141.

The odometer shows 15,523 miles.

The seller was at a local shop picking up a different bike and this was sitting in the back so he snagged it as well.

It will start with the help of a battery box, however if you want it to be a runner it will need the tank stripped and lined (old liner falling apart in tank), carb clean, fork seals, rear brake pads, spark plugs, battery, tires, brake fluid flush, oil/filter change, coolant flush as well as the valve cover gasket, grommets and o-rings.

The lower fairings are off the bike but are included in the sale.
