Yamaha TZR’s are awesome bikes that are featured here on RSBFS as often as they come up for sale. Here you have an opportunity to pick one up set up for the track, where the bike can really shine. Lightweight chassis and lots of power means fun, fun, fun. Track or street the TZR is a rare bike for sure.
From the seller-
This is a 1991 Yamaha TZR250.
More specifically, it has a TZR250R frame with a TZR250RS engine. The main difference being the ‘RS’ trim has the dry-clutch whereas the ‘R’ trim does not.
For those that aren’t familiar with the TZR, it’s Yamaha’s street replica version of the 2T TZ250 GP bike. This bike put out 56hp at the wheel with improper jetting (was dyno’d with 340 mains, whereas should have been 310s – short story – dyno operator’s auxiliary fuel setup was starving bike of fuel due to clogged filter), so should put out close to 60 with the proper main jets.
Bike’s top-end was freshened up a while ago with only 2 trackdays done on it since. Pistons/cylinders appeared to be in good condition.
As you can tell in the pictures, this bike has had all the street parts removed. The oil tank and pump setup have been removed, as well as all lights and the harness has been modified to remove all those connections and to remove any restrictions.
Note Worthy Modifications

TZ250 TM38 carbs, which have been modified a bit.
Key switch, etc. has been removed.
