So I began to daydream. The lower fairing had a small crack which I epoxied and covered with a sticker. Motorcycle is sold complete I will not part out. Good luck and have a nice day. After removing the rust the fuel tank and cleaning the carbs, I reinstalled everything expecting it to fire up.
The bodywork on the bike had not been tight and rattled quite a bit, and I found that the front fairing under the headlight was cracked and causing a real buzz at 3-4000rpms. It runs well, it rides well. The sportier version won out. Had a '92 for a couple of yrs back in the late 90's. Power delivery is linear all the way to its 9500-rpm redline. It comes with a tank bra. Lots of work and maintenance done recently.
Title is clean, Im owner. Buyers are responsible for shipping costs We reserve the right to cancel this auction at any time at our discretion. I rebuilt the frame with a more traditional tail, something to support a rear fender. The screws with the fairing could be sized up and bought at a hardware store. This kid had a grinder, he had ambition, he had hopes and dreams, but not much talent.
I sold it a short time later with 50k miles on it and, convinced I was ready for a full-blown sport touring rig, bought a Kawi Concours. But it spent so much time in the garage, sitting, beckoning, luring and not being ridden that I decided to sell it. I dunno, it looks nice and all but a leaking valve cover points towards abuse or lack of maintenance by him or previous owners. Here it is the day I brought it home. Six month's later, it did indeed rise from the ashes.
Good luck and have a wonderful day. Suspension at both ends is compliant, but the rear shock spring could be stiffer - even our lightest tester liked the spring-preload cranked all the way up. Talk him down and find out how much its gonna cost to fix that valve cover. Emails: are slow to respond to due to the volume we receive. Must sell, baby on the way and the wife wants it out, lol. But Yamaha went one step better.
We are committed to providing our customers with the highest quality merchandise and service available anywhere! Good luck and have a wonderful day. It could be a great deal, though. Couldn't even get a test ride. I hope to share some good explorations in the not-to-distant future. I will continue to refine and change it over the next several months, as I ride it and use it. The Seca's motor is rubber-isolated at two of its four mounting points, providing a compromise of vibration control and rigidity. Also sorta looking for a cruiser style bike if you've got a trade.
I put 3k miles on it the first season and about the same the second. Runs like a charm, considering she's 22 years old! I would go through this one and completely restore it. The stylish half-fairing with slotted windscreen deflects wind off the rider's torso, with little buffeting at helmet level. The tires need replaced soon but it's otherwise in good condition. While the bikes are wonderful in their way, they are far from unique which makes getting parts for them much easier than if they were unique. I named it Phoenix as it would rise from the ashes. If so, see if they can take a ride with you to see it.
But it looked good, ran fine and so I put it on a trailer and brought it home. Given the recent restoration of the faired '92, I decided a faired touring bike just wasn't for me anymore and that I would do something different. Edit: Also, what are everyone's opinions on substituting a different tires size on the rear tire? To get at the starter gear on these bikes, you have to split the cases, which means the engine comes out. Footpegs are low offering plenty of leg-room yet only slightly compromising cornering clearance. Here it is as it sits today: I've put a few thousand miles on this one since the restoration. The best is probably the factory Yamaha manual but hard to find sometimes.
The fairing provided reasonable coverage and looked quite racy. Radare has a thread on here where he overhauled his lock. There is some light rust on some of the fastners - and some other screws and the front brake reservoir is a mess, but overall the bike is like a time capsule bike. Pennsylvania buyers will pay sales tax and registration. Rare original evergreen color, most of the American models were red!

Our production test bike liked a lot of choke in the morning, but once it was warm it ran fine: there was not a hint of carburetion glitches.
The oil leak concerns me, as well. I took apart the ignition switch and have te starter power as it cranked. The motor was based on the Diversion 400 motor used elsewhere in the world. It ran well, looked good and people noticed it. The battery is brand new. All products are advertised with the lowest retail price we can offer! The two valve per cylinder engine was no technological marvel, but it was reliable and easy to live with.
