1990 Yamaha FZR 600 Survivor

Location: Cincinnati, Ohio

Mileage: 9,388

Price: Auction, current $1,322

What we have here is a survivor from the start of the 90’s, quite possibly the best decade for sportbikes. The FZR 600 was a great bike (had the chance to ride one back in the day and it was awesome) and more a track bike than what I was riding at the time (’88 Hurricane 600). The 600 class was very competitive at the time and the FZR’s Deltabox frame, race orientation and killer paint spoke to many of us. I just didn’t have the money at the time.

This seller found this after years of storage. Here’s the rundown-

This is a super clean low milage 1990 FZR 600 RA.  Just out of long term storage and has not run since 2008.  Purchased from the estate of the original owner.  Only 9,388 miles. The original sales reciept is included along with the original owners manual.

It will need the usual service, maintenance and adjustments commonly provided to a motorcycle that has been in storage since 2008.  The tank will need a general cleaning but there is no significant old gas residue as the tank must have been drained before storage.  The battery needs to be replaced.  Tires look good and are not cracked but may need replaced for high speed use.  Carbs may need to be cleaned.  No visible leaks or drips.  Shifts through all gears and has strong compression commensurate with the low milage. 

Photos show small to tiny scratches on front fender and right lower fairing which can be touched up or buffed out.  There is a section of the front right fairing that is broken/missing, see photo.  There is a very small nick in the seat which is an easy repair, see photo.  A great low cost begining for a show bike.

Good Ohio title. Build date is 10/1989. 

This is a great example that has seen limited and careful use by one long term own.  Lots of miles and smiles remain for the new owner.  A lot of near classic motorcycle for the money and it will appreciate in value every year.

Please study photos and call me for more information.

Sold “as is where is” without mechanical gurantee…only my description is guranteed to be accurate and is back by a 100% money back pledge if I have failed to provide you a materially accurate description of the FZR.

A $200. deposit is to be paid within 72 hours of offer auction ending.  The balance is due within 7 days auction ending.  Paypal is ok for depot and for the remaining balance. 

I will assist with shipping on this end but you must make all arrangements. I will provide indoor storage for 60 days. I may personally  provide enclosed delivery within 350 miles of Cincinnati Ohio for additional cost.  Call me for quote.

My feed back is 100%.  If yours is less than 92% and or you have fewer than 9 Ebay transactions you must call me before you bid or your bid may be cancelled.

And photos with more in the auction-

As the seller points out, this bike has been in storage for a long time and will need the necessary work to bring her back to life. And it does have the one broken piece in the headlight fairing and small spot on the seat. But otherwise, this is a clean, stock FZR600 that has survived pretty well over the years and comes in the best paint scheme there was. It’s simply gorgeous in my opinion and takes me right back to that day outside of my college town when I threw a leg over, grabbed some throttle and hit the first corner. Awesome.

So I don’t know where the auction will end price wise, but I think there is an opportunity here to pick a great bike at a good price. There will be some work to be done and the fairing may be difficult to replace. However, if done, here’s a great bike that will bring happiness and probably increase in value as the years go by.

This FZR is clean and the mileage is fine. If you want to pick up a great example of the beginning of a decade of many cool bikes, then make the jump!

1989 Yamaha FZR600 For Sale at Flykitty Motorsports

We’ve posted a few bikes from the folks at Flykitty Motorsports and here is another: A really great looking FZR600 that is almost all original with 18k miles. This year and color scheme are special to me as it’s EXACTLY the same as my first bike that I rode in college. And even back then, mine was a rashed machine and was never as nice or honest as this one.

Check out this 89 Yamaha FZR600 at Flykitty Motorsports

quote from their website:

1989 Yamaha FZR-600 ~ Only 18k miles. Classic Sportbike from years gone by in Outstanding condition! Completely stock and original, just serviced and ready to ride. Great starter bike or to collect and preserve! ~ Only $2800

Most of the survivor FZR600’s we see these days are the very late models and rarely these early ones. Sure there are cheaper FZR’s out there, but not this early, clean, and original.

Thanks to Pete for the trip back down memory lane and the submission!

Time Capsule: 0 Mile 1992 Yamaha FZR600 Vance And Hines Edition

What a neat find! We’ve had few V&H FZR600 replicas grace RSBFS but I don’t think we’ve had one with no miles on it. I would think this would get most any Yamaha collector’s heart pumping. As I’ve said before, I think bikes like these are more rare than most any exotic Bimota or limited edition MV Agusta. Why you ask? Most any 20 year old with a part time job could afford these bikes and once purchased they were ridden hard and sometimes not taken care of. With time, even the clean bikes were sold to their third or fourth owner and well you get the picture.

The story behind the bike:

1992 Yamaha FZR600 Vance & Hines
vin # JYA3HHE06NA042098
Limited Edition #518 of 636
Mileage 000.8

You are bidding on a BRAND NEW never started bike as decribed above. This bike was purchased by our Yamaha dealership/owner but never put up for sale, instead it was added to the bosses growing collection of rare, unusual, or exotic bikes and put in storage with the rest . However, the time has come to reduce our inventory and make his collection smaller by finding a good home for several of his collectables.

This is the ULTIMATE bike for the ULTIMATE collector who has almost everything ……. a perfect addition to any collection. FZR was recently removed from storage and is currently on display (for sale) as pictured.

Bike comes with MSO, bill of sale, and a copy of the original dealer invoice.

What were you doing back in 1992?  Remember wandering into a Yamaha dealership and lusting after a limited edition FZR600?  It might have been out of reach then but what about now?  

As you can imagine, you have to throw out book value on a bike like this.  Don’t let the Mrs. try to tell you otherwise.  How can you put a price on filling out your prized collection or reliving your youth?  This one is starting off at a cool $5000.  How about some more pictures to try and convince you it is worth it?

1992 Yamaha FZR600 Vance & Hines Edition #476 with 2,620 Original Miles

This a very nice, low mileage, Vance & Hines Edition FZR600.

Bike:  1992 Yamaha FZR600 V&H

Location:  Mountain Lakes, New Jersey

Mileage:  2,620mi

The seller states that this bike is “…perfect without a scratch.”  It was recently tuned and supposedly runs like a champ.  This bike looks to be perfectly stock (except for the windscreen) and in fantastic condition as the seller states.  We’ve had a few V&H Edition FZR’s in the past and none had this low of mileage or were in as original condition.  See the other FZR600s we’ve posted here.

The Vance & Hines Edition wasn’t special other than the commemorative scheme and V&H exhaust system.  1992 was also the last year for the square headlight design which only lasted for two years before Yamaha reverted back to the earlier, dual headlight, design that was so popular.  If you’re a Yamaha collector, you should have one of these and this is probably one of the best examples out there.  See the bike on eBay .

1992 Yamaha FZR600 Vance & Hines Edition #505 Of 600

This is a FZR600 Vance & Hines limited edition with 9,500 miles!  Located near Sacramento, California is a 1992 Yamaha FZR600 Vance & Hines limited edition #505 Of 600 with 9,500 original miles.  The seller states that this bike has been garaged kept and comes with a cover.  This bike looks to vary from stock in that it has color matched seats, purple exhaust/rear peg mounts, purple sprocket, smoked windscreen and polished lips on the wheels.  The asking price is $4,000 which isn’t outrageous if you’re looking for a LE FZR even though these are all cosmetic except for the Vance & Hines exhaust.  See the two other FZR600 V&H bikes we posted in the past here.  If you’re interested in this low mile FZR with period correct modifications, see the bike on Craigslist here.

1992 Yamaha FZR600 Vance & Hines #353 And #376 Of 636

Here are two, rare, FZR600 Vance & Hines Edition replicas!

First, located in Worthington, Minnesota is #353 with 9,132 original miles.  The seller, a dealer, says that this bike is in collector condition which agrees with the mileage and condition in the photos.  No asking price or further information is given.  See the bike on Worthington Sports Center’s website here.

Second, located in Burnsville, Minnesota is #376 with 22,600 miles.  The bike has recently been serviced which includes fuel system flush, carb cleaning, and ceramic coating of the  header.  This bike also comes with the factory shop manual, tank bra, and some other bits.  The current owner is the third owner and has owned the bike since 1998.  This bike looks to be in very good condition in the photos.  The asking price is $3,000 which isn’t outrageous compared the the majority of FZR600’s out there.  See this example on Craigslist here.

I’m quite sure, from what I remember, these bikes were just replicas and didn’t feature any additional mechanical features (Other than a Vance & Hines exhaust system) as with the SJR CBR’s and Rossi R1’s–please correct me if I’m wrong.  Either of these bikes look to be in fantastic condition even though one has more than ten thousand more miles.  The choice, for me, would come down to what the dealer is asking for their bike and how much I valued a sub 10k mile bike.

1989 Yamaha FZR400

Located somewhere in the Bay Area of California is a very nice 1989 FZR400 set up for track use but also comes with a title, license plate, and registration.  This FZR400 features a FZR600 radiator, fan, and thermostat; 17in rear wheel, R6 front brakes, double click Fox rear shock, Daytona steering damper, Woodcraft rearsets and Sharkskinz bodywork.  That isn’t all this bike comes with however.  The asking price seems very fair at $2,000.  See this bike on Bay Area Riders Forum here.

1992 Yamaha FZR600

Located in San Francisco, California is a 1992 Yamaha FZR600 with 7,000 original miles.  FZRs, especially the 600s, aren’t that rare, but this one looks to be in above average condition with only seven-thousand original miles.  The bike may have been dropped on the right hand side judging by the marks on the intake below the “FZR” text–something to ask the seller about.  This example is stock except for an aftermarket rear shock and .95 Racetech springs in the front.  The bike is priced at a $2,600; which seems fair for a low mileage condition FZR.  See this bike on Bay Area Riders Forum here.
