For Sale: 1990 Yamaha FZR400Link: http://bit.ly/yxcE3T
Wow – another Fizzer 400. I’m beginning to wonder how rare these little bikes are given the number I’ve run across recently. Of course to be fair I *have* been looking for them lately, as I think one of these 400cc scalpels would make a great track day bike for my wife. Shhhh – don’t tell her I’m looking!
You can see some of the other recent 400cc machines we have posted HERE and HERE. This one is looking pretty good by most standards. It is not the pristine museum example that I would be afraid to track occasionally, but it is also not completely thrashed and modded like many of these we find. And let the pictures remind us that not all riding takes place in sunny Southern California with year ’round balmy weather!
From the seller:
Up for sale is a very rare, 2-owner 1990 FZR400. I have not seen another one on the road and very rarely see one up for auction. A little bit about the bike:
Runs great!! Fired it right up after a year of sitting in 29 degree weather!! From what I have read 1990 is a very hard-to-find year for these models
All original parts except for an aftermarket canister that was installed by previous owner. Deltabox frame. Always garage kept, oil and filter changed every riding season. Never raced. Light body damage but pretty good for an older bike (Pictures)
Very fast and fun at high rpm’s. One of the best handling motorcycles I have been on. Air filter and fluids changed this year.
All electric features work…never have had any issues.
Purchased from a dealer in SE Wisconsin who new previous owner. Really took care of it.
Clear, clean Wisconsin title in hand!
With nearly 20k on the clock, here is a FZR400 that has been ridden. With low mods (I don’t know much about Devil exhaust systems, though I had read somewhere that the parent company in France has declared bankrupcy?) and only minor damage this bike looks to be a survivor. No hooligan stuntahs here!
What really gets me is that this bike has had ZERO bids with a $2,800 opening ask. The BIN is a reasonable $3k. Neither of those are bargain basement numbers, but nor are they way out of line with the going rate for one of these bikes. Check out the auction, then contact the seller and make him an offer. This looks like a bike for which one of our readers can provide a good home. Good Luck!
