Cheap Thrills – 1994 Yamaha FZR1000

1994 Yamaha FZR1000 on eBay

Yamaha’s FZR1000 brought a lot to the table.  It was a bike that did a lot of things well.  It was lighter than the competing ZX-11 and GSXR-1000 and every bit as fast.  It was also fairly comfortable for a sportbike which made it a very capable highway hauler.  It also wasn’t shy, as you can see by the colors here.  Love it or hate it, you couldn’t miss it.  Pick a color in the rainbow and it’s in there somewhere.  The FZR1000 would eventually be phased out by Yamaha’s game changing YZF-R1, but not before being dubbed Cycle World’s “Bike of the Decade” at the end of the 80s.

This particular example appears to have been well cared for during it’s 20+ years, only amassing about 1000 miles per year in the process.  The owner lists some basic maintenance and history in his eBay listing seen here: 1994 Yamaha FZR1000 on eBay

Hello, and thank you for viewing my listing.  Up for sale is my 1994 Yamaha FZR 1000.  I’ve owned it since 2009, and it’s been a great bike!  The only maintenance that I’ve had to do is to fix the speedometer shortly after I purchased it, and replace the fork seals (2012), other than that it’s just been tires, batteries, and oil changes.   It runs great with no issues whatsoever.  The plastics are in near perfect condition with only a very small blemish here or there.  It has the solo seat option, which I think makes the bike look much sportier.  The pad on the solo seat has worn through a bit from riding (see photos).  It’s been stored indoors the entire time I’ve owned it, and I’m pretty sure, for it’s entire life.  The original owner of this bike was a certified Yamaha mechanic, and he was very meticulous about maintenance.

The more I see these FZR1000s, the more I find myself wondering why I don’t own one?  It’s fast, it’s comfortable, it’s affordable and those colors just make me smile.  I think I need to start making space in the garage…

  • Front tire is oriented in the wrong direction. How can somebody mess that up?

  • every time I see this color scheme on yamaha I get flashbacks to the old mtv flag on the moon opening

  • The bike is in Phoenix and has Illinois plates, Wonder what the story is.

    • Those pictures were taken in Illinois in the summer. That sure is not Phoenix ant time of the year!

  • I just bought a ’95 with around 23,000. Fantastically fast, smooth and a heavy bike, too. Good on windy days. My only complaint is 5 gears. I really want a 6th gear!

  • Front tire looks correct to me, generally sportbike front tire patterns appear to be opposite of a directional car tire
