In 1993, an almost liter bike sized machine with a funny sized front tire was all the rave and blah, blah, blah #BeenThereDoneThat
While Baba was doing his thing, Yamaha was off to the side tinkering on their own niche machine- the SRX 400 Thumper!
I normally frown upon rare machines with a complete overhaul and modern updates, but I also realize I’m almost as old as dirt and my favorite 90’s machines are starting to require some freshening up.
I’m not a fan of the muscle car term they use for such overhauls and I literally hate to say it, but in this case it fits . . . I can’t even type it.

Whew! The seller didn’t use the muscle car term, but they did mention a beautiful high end titanium exhaust! Let’s have a look- shall we?
That my friends is a dime piece! Lets look at that again-
The SRX was already a welter weight at 374#’s and we all know the 5# stock exhaust is best used as a boat anchor. So that sweet ass Ti exhaust drops it down to 370’ish#’s and definitely adds a few ponies. Now, it’s a given that SRX ponies are almost as hard to find as frogs hair, but rest assured, they are there. How many you ask? Let’s be generous and call it 35’ish with the Ti exhaust and one cylinder.
The Olhins is a nice touch and I’m sure the stock unit was worn out and FUBAR.
Do I have any company in liking this SRX? If so, you can check it out here!
