OW-Oh’Bitchin! 1999 Yamaha YZF-R7 (OW-02)

Location: Hollister, CA

Miles: 750

Price: $25,000

Well here is something you definitely don’t see for sale everyday. The OW-02 is the kind of bike that defines a Rare Sport Bike, and this one is For Sale. Yamaha had designed the R7 to compete in WSB and given it numerous improvements. Ohlins suspension, titanium valves and con-rods, forged pistons with nickel-plated tops, an extra layer of aluminum on the frame that made it twice as stiff as an R1, and carbon fiber airbox highlight these upgrades. Yamaha was not messing around when they made these things. The R7 meant business.

This lovely R7 up for sale here has only traveled a total of 750 miles during its life. It is not stock, but it does have a Stage 1 Race kit installed. I don’t know exactly was is included in the kit, but you can be sure that the power rating is well above the stock level of 100hp. All of the stock parts and manuals are included as well.

From the seller:

Yamaha YZF-R7 for sale by original owner.

I have owned this bike from new. It has very low mileage and has only been ridden at track days, never been raced or been on the road. In excellent original condition. R7 Stage I race kit professionally installed.

Only 1200 Km (750 miles) since new.

All unused kit parts, removed original parts and manuals included in sale.

The bike is in street-legal trim and CA registered (plate removed for pictures).

For full details on this model, see the Motorcycle.com Review of the 1999 R7

UPDATE: The bike will be on display at the eBay Motors booth at the Red BullU.S. Grand Prix at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca this weekend, from Friday July 27 - Sunday July 29. The booth will be located by Turn 2, the Andretti Hairpin, in the vendors area.

Considering that these bikes were an unprecedented $30k when they were brand new, I would say that this bike is a steal. Well maybe not a steal, but at $25k with ultra low miles, a race kit installed, and all the stock parts included, it is a hell of a deal. And the best part? You can venture on down to the RedBull U.S. Gran Prix this weekend and see it in person at the eBay motors booth at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca! You can bet that I will be there as will most of the other RSBFS staff members. I you see me, feel free to say “Hi”, I’ll be the guy wearing a hat and shorts… You can check out the auction here and buy this awesome R7 today!

See you at the Corckscrew!

Jamie James prepared 2008 Yamaha YZF-R AMA Superbike – ex Scott Russell bike!

For Sale: 2008 Yamaha YZF-R AMA Superbike Jamie James Scott Russell

What you are looking at is a 2008 Yamaha R1 prepared by Jamie James Productions for Scott "Mr Daytona" Russell. This bike was a backup bike for AMA SuperStock competition, and retains street legal bits and title in addition to the Jamie James and Scott Russell pedigree.

From the seller:
JJP ( Jamie James Productions) a Superbike champion and as a Yamaha factory spokesperson is legendary. With the help of the factory, Jamie James built 2 Yamaha R1's for Superstock competition with the rider being "Mr. Daytona" Scott Russell. This happens to be the back up bike, athough set up identically to the race bike it was actually never raced, hence why its like new. I recently spoke to Jamie about the bike and he remembers it well, in fact Jamie remembers Scott saying "this is the fastest bike I've ever ridden". I wont bore you with the details of the stock Yamaha R1, but this about the time Jorge Lorenzo won Moto GP, Ben Spies won WSBK world superbike ( hence the bodykit) and Josh Hayes won AMA superbike, 'nuff said. It's part of my personal collection of bikes, not my stores and It's condition is near flawless. Yes it's used, so expect to find some wear if you get on your hands and knees ( maybe some carbon damage on muffler),but you would be hard pressed to find it, Im fastidious about the details. Its' never been raced by Scott Russell or myself, but probably needs to be, its an incredible machine and you wont get passed on the straights, thats for sure. It comes with TWO sets of body work,one for the track and one for the street of which there are pics of both in the Sterilgarda livery. Show or ride this bike, street riding is awesome with the Bazzaz fuel management. It's low mileage, and incredible amount of bits of which I'll list below and it may be the only one in the world like it. Have copy of original paperwork from Yamaha to Jamie James. The title is in my name now, free and clear.

Here is a detailed video from the seller outlining key features of the bike:

And here is an extensive list of items included with the bike:

Hand built 1000cc Yamaha engine, balanced-blueprinted,degreed cam's and factory supported power enhancements - JJP quotes as around 180 dyno'd rear wheel horsepower ( around 200hp at the crank)

Full Sterilgarda Bodywork, One street kit AND One track kit
Slipper clutch and close ratio 6 speed transmission
Ohlins World SuperSport front forks (built by Ohlins factory)
Ohlins TTX rear triple clicker shock
Ohlins adjustable steering dampener
Bazzaz Traction control ( on the fly adjustment)
Bazzaz quick shifter ( full throttle clutchless upshifts)
Bazzaz Z-Fi fuel injection mapping w/ handlebar switch ability (automatic engine mapping for power)
Akropovich FULL Titanium headers and exhaust w/ Carbon Fiber mufflers (sounds incredible)
Vortex fully adjustable rearsets
Vortex Front + rear sprockets
D.I.D gold chain
Woodcraft adjustable handlbars
R & G front, mid, rear and front fork frame sliders
Eliptech LED shift light indicator ( awesome piece)
CRG adjust a click shorty levers
Billet Alternator + clutch side plates
Michelin Pilot pure Ultra high performance tires
Street items
Mirror block off plates
LED turn and rear signals
Fender eliminator/License plate holder
Kick stand

If you are ready to step up to the big leagues of track day bikes, this just might be your weapon. With world-class componentry throughout - as well as some tasty add-ons - you could not put this bike together for what you can buy it for. Sure, a real racebike that was wrung out by Scott Russell in anger would likely bring more cash, but this is a very close second place.

This auction is on right now with the current bid under $10k at the time of this writing. The reserve is still in place. There are so many things right with this bike that you have to wonder where it will end up. This bike has all the right stuff: the right names behind it (James, Russel, Ohlins, Bazzaz, Akropovic, Eliptech, Vortex, Woodcraft, etc etc etc), a great presentation with tons of pics and a looong video, and a unique background. The R1 may not be a collectable bike, but I think this one will do rather well.

For more information and details, click on the link and check out the auction. Good luck to you, and be sure and tell 'em you found it on RSBFS!

The Last Great Yamaha: 1999 YZF-R7 OW02

Location: Clovis, California
Mileage: 3,955
Price: Auction, $15,000 starting bid

Okay, well here we have something special. While Yamaha built many, many bikes in the new R series when it came to 600's and 1000's (R6 and R1), that was not the case with the R7. This bike was limited run (500 produced), made for racing and only built so it could qualify for World Superbike (of which a title was never achieved but is an interesting story if you want to look it up). The other way this bike was different from everything else? The price. You want to take this baby home in 1999, get ready to fork over $32,000. But with that $32k came front and rear suspension and steering damper from Ohlins, titanium valves and connecting rods, vertically stacked close-ration gearbox and a frame specially braced for stiffness. The five valve per cylinder in-line four only cranked out around 100 bhp (purposely restricted) from Yamaha, but the addition of race parts from the factory could take you well beyond that.

Here's some more photos-

The seller provides very limited information, especially for a bike of this significance. Here it is-

1999 Yamaha YZR R7 s/n -------406, 6365 km 3955 miles,as of 07-08-2011.  Brembo Monoblock front brakes, Marchesini front wheel w/rotors, Track body panels (tail/front/bottom)

Brembo clutch & front brake master cylinders, Carbon air box, New tires, OEM front wheel/rotors/brakes included. 

The seller does highlight some of the changes to the bike, notably the Marchesini front wheel and Brembo monoblocks, maybe not unusual for someone looking to race the bike. It looks as though the original parts are included here, which is good for those looking for originality. The windscreen also looks to be a replacement as does the exhaust (I believe it should be carbon fiber). The only other comment I would have is there are few photos of the bike, so you may want to request more.

Outside of those concerns, which are minor, the OW02 is one special machine. I think anyone serious about collecting can't overlook one in terms of its significance. Certainly, if Yamaha is your brand, this has got to be near, if not the very top, of the list. If you agree, check out the auction!

Very clean 1996 Yamaha YZF-750R

1996 Yamaha YZF-750R with 24,000 miles for sale.

We have seen some crazy prices with some of my previous posts - such as the pair of Ducati MH900e's for close to a cool million dollars or the ex-Chili Ducati 916 WSBK race bike - so here's something a bit more affordable but no less fun (if not more - because you won't be constantly thinking of the repair bill if you bin it!):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0nQjJvAdQyQ
this is the one you should have had when  you were racing.. the ow 1 [I think he meant the OW01] was 22000$ so i guess you didnt get that , this was 8000$.    so heres the diff, no snorkels threw the tank, they were a pain any way.
135 hp at 422lbs
128 hp at 435lbs for this one
both had 165mph top speed,
so here she is in all the glory , it has a small scratch on the tank near the cap and a ding on the front fender , most likly from a stone.  the foot pegs are barly worn , only a small wear on the outer edge where your boot would rub..  its so clean pix cant show the reality.
check out  the seat, yea your passanger will like it, unlike modern bikes that have little pad for rider or passanger.
cool factor, bikes are all the same look these days . this is an era that had flash, you got a fast bike that looked fast.
has excelent tires,, maybe 800 miles on them,  carbon vance and hines pipe and thats it.
shes  a beauty  have a look and a listen
i have a mint rear seat cowl as well  its white covers the rear seat
if you r gonna look may as well make offer, or send an e mail , thanks

The YZF-750R was actually very decent sports bike, if it were not for the Honda CBR900 Fireblade that stole the show when it was introduced back in 1992.  Fast forward 18 years and things look a bit different - most of us are a bit softer around the edges and with several strands of hair fewer.  We are also not chasing the latest and greatest race replica since we can't contort ourselves to fit into that race tuck position for more than 5 minutes.  Now classics such as the Yamaha YZF-750R is starting to look like a pretty attractive "softer" sports bike for daily street riding.  No matter how you look at it, 125 horses is nothing to sneeze at.

The SP version (with pink, blue, and white graphics, flatslides, and solo seating) is quite a sought after bike as it was never really imported into the US (funnily enough our neighbours up north got a few of those) but for street riding the regular R version is a much better bike.  The YZF also has a pretty good fan base - just check out the YZF section on EXUP Worldwide forum. Here's also a pretty good review and buying advice on the YZF750R over at Visordown.

This specific sample, while a bit high on mileage at 24,000 miles looks to be very clean and well taken care of. Aside from the high Buy It Now price (for this time of year) and the somewhat uninformative description (sorry, a pet peeve of mine), this YZF would make a great Christmas tree ornament.  If you're shopping for a modern day classic this Christmas, .

MCN did a test comparing a few older bikes (the YZF750 being one of them) with a 2006 GSXR1000 around Cadwell Park, and the results might surprise you:

2006 Yamaha 50th Anniversary R1

False alarm- Thanks to everyone who has set me straight on this model.

2006 Yamaha LE 50th Anniversary R1

Location: New Haven, IN
Price: $6,850.00 B.I.N. (!)
Mileage: 13,623

So.... I know I'll probably catch some 'stuff' for posting this one when there are better ones to be had. But, I always like finding a "gem in the rough" and I think this one fits that category quite well. We usually see these floating around for sale in the $12,000 to $13,000 range, but this one is being offered at almost half the super low mileage LE's we've previously had on RSBFS. I think this is an absolute steal for this bike and I have a sneaky suspicion as to why it might still be for sale. It is listed on ebay as a 2006 Honda Shadow Yamaha R1.

In case you're wondering about the seller it appears they are on the up and up, but they just placed this one in the wrong category.

Have a look:

For Sale 2006 Yamaha R1 LE 50th Anniversary Edition With the Marchesini mag rims runs and rides great only thing i can find wrong is a small scratch on the right side of the upper fairing and a small crack in the tail that are very hard to see

to see this one.

Okay, so you're not down with a high mileage collectible rider. I also found this listed on ebay as well.

Cheers!

1999 Yamaha YZF-R7 In Southern California With An Asking Price Of $20,000

This is the real deal, a 1999 YZF-R7!  Located in Spring Valley, California is a 1999 Yamaha YZF-R7 titled and registered in California.  This example has been used with 21,835km (13,567mi) on the clock.  The seller states that the bike is "All stock with the stage 1 mod, white wire cut activating the second set of injectors, full AKRO exhaust."  No mention of the replacement crank or other maintenance history is made however, I'm going to assume the bike is in pretty good condition based on the photos.  In March, we saw an R7 out of Florida with 2,800km on the clock and an asking price of $26,500 which can be seen here.  See our other R7 postings here.  The pricing on this one seems good for an R7 but, a little high for one with 13k miles.  The seller does state that they are firm on the price and that "If you don't want to pay the price go buy a different R7."  Err, good point.  The R7 was Yamaha's homologation bike for World SuperBike when they were racing 750cc inline-fours and is truly exotic; not sharing anything with the mundane R1 except for it's look.  If you're looking for a usable R7, have a look at this nice example in Southern California here.
