1988 Yamaha FZR750 (RU)

Located in Denver, Colorado is a very nice 1988 Yamaha FZR750.  The seller states that it has a fresh clutch, fork seals, head set bearings, grips, K&N filters, oil, plugs, O-ring chain and more.  Owned by the same family for the last nine years.  Only 7,068 original miles.  The seller states that the bike is in perfect condition and the pictures agree with this.  See this fantastic FZR750 on Craigslist 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.

1988 Yamaha FZR250R Genesis

Located in Toronto, California is a very nice example of a 1988 Yamaha FZR250R.  This example has 13,400km’s (8,326mi) and looks to be in beautiful condition with little worry from the four stroke motor.  The asking price is $2,890–assumed Canadian dollars.  Now, unfortunately, as close to the U.S. border this bike is, it still is going to be quite difficult to bring in legally. Shame.  See this very nice example on Craigslist here.



The same seller from Toronto also has a fantastic Yamaha FZR400R (no year mentioned) with only 10,900km’s (6,772mi’s).  The asking price is $3,150, again, assumed Canadian dollars.  See the very original, unmolested, bike in the rare blue/yellow scheme on Craigslist here.

1989 Yamaha FZR400

Located in Sammamish, Washington is a very clean 1989 Yamaha FZR400 with 28,073 original miles.  This bike looks very clean, only needing a slight detail to become a perfect example.  This bike only looks to have a period correct aftermarket exhaust and colored windshield deviating from stock.  See one of the best examples of the FZR400 series on eBay here.

1987 Yamaha FZR750R

Located in Russell, Illinois is a 1987 Yamaha FZR750R.  This example shows only 2,596 original miles and looks to be in excellent condition with a clean title.  Examine this homologation special on eBay here.


Also, located in Austin, Texas is another 1987 FZR750R.  This example has less than 8k miles, been kept in a climate controlled garage, but has been sitting and will need to be gone through.  Asking price is $4,500.  See the Craigslist ad here.

1989 Yamaha FZR400

Located in San Diego, California is a very clean and original 1989 Yamaha FZR400.  Showing only 18k miles this example would be an excellent candidate for preservation and enjoyment.  Nice, street legal, examples of these aluminum framed 400’s have been reduced significantly due to racing.  If you would like an excellent example for only $2600, see the Craigslist ad here.

1989 Yamaha FZR400 $2750

Quite rare, but not unobtainable, are the aluminum framed FZR 400’s.  Located in San Jose, California is this 1989 FZR 400 with an asking price of $2750.  This isn’t the most desirable year, but, looks quite clean for being twenty years old.  FZR’s (Specifically the 400’s and 600’s) need to be carefully examined to make sure they haven’t been beat continuously for their whole lives.  This example only shows 9K miles and looks well cared for–still having its original plastics.  If you’re in the market, this would be worth looking into in this condition and at this price.  See the Bay Area Riders Forum post here.

Edit: Bike is now sold 06/02/09.

1987 Yamaha FZR 750R #169 of 200

Update 1.14.2011: Now on Craigslist for $4k. Thanks for the heads up Joe!


Located in Louisville, KY this bike belongs to and was submitted by Kelly who is a daily reader. Thank you for supporting our site and sending us your bike to post.

We’ve had a few of these before, but I have to admit it’s been difficult finding the proper information for this bike.

Here’s what I know:
These were the pre-cursor to Yamaha’s famed OW01 FZR 750RR Homologation
There were only 200 of them made to satisfy the AMA Homologation rules
There are very few left as most of them were raced just like any other LE Homologation production model

Owner has the following to say:

This bike is #169 of only 200 made for the US market. To homologate the FZR for AMA racing, Yamaha had to bring 200 street-spec 750 into this country. This bike escaped the racetrack, instead becoming a garage queen. The bike is entirely stock. Never safety wired, never put on the track. As you can see in the pictures, the only damage is a crack in the fairing at the right side front turn signal and a little bit of clearcoat peeling off the left side of the solo cowl. The only mechanical issue on the entire bike is that the button which resets the odometer came off years ago. Last year I had the valves checked and the carbs synched. This bike runs beautifully. If you are very serious about this bike I will be glad to make a short video showing start-up from cold. Nothing to hide, like I said it runs flawlessly. I also have an original Yamaha shop manual and various magazine articles from when the bike was released.

Looks like Kelly has taken great pride in owning this bike because by looking at the pictures one wouldn’t know it has 25,304 miles on the clock, which is low for a 22 year old motorcycle. I also think it says a lot about the seller and bike when the owner is willing to produce a video showing a cold start and idle. So if your a Yamaha guy and like what you see,
