MORE PHOTOS AVAILABLE HERE: http://newjersey.craigslist.org/mcy/423XXXXXX.html Really cool vintage superbike 80's Yamaha Radian YX600 project with no time to finish. Bike #1: This bike had been stored in a barn for 10 yrs when I found it. It has a CLEAN TITLE!!!! I got it to run up on the bench last week. Unfortunately I just don't have time to do the full blown restoration I had dreamt of. Chrome exhaust is in really attractive shape. Tank in attractive shape. Complete set of matching light blue bodywork in box. Seat in attractive condition. Complete with all side panels. All cables work, brakes work. Lamps work. Just rebuilt carbs and installed a high flow K&N air filter. With little effort you could make this a reliable daily runner. However, with all that being said, this bike is still what I would call a project bike. It's a great candidate for a complete restoration. Bike #2 was supposed to be a donor parts bike but I couldn't resist getting it running either. Bought it for the rare four into 1 exhaust and then decided to rebuild the carbs and see what I had to work with. Ran for a few minutes on the bench just like her sister. So now I can't bear to tear her apart. Will make a really cool custom cafe racer....already halfway there with straight bars and airbox removed.Bike #3 was dismantled down to the frame and ready for the powdercoater and a complete custom rebuild. Complete motor, wheels, suspension, wiring harness, lamps, seat, instruments, airbox, exhaust and carburetor bank (all four complete). The only major component missing from #3 is a tank. No titles for Bike #2 or Bike #3. Bill of sale only. This is a PROJECT. These bikes are not ready to ride home. The chain, sprockets and tires need to be replaced. No battery included. Fuel petcock is leaking (will give you a spare unit. Rebuild kits are available on eBay for about $30. Will include an owners manual and a repair manual with sale.I am willing to deliver the bikes (and the boxes of spare parts) within 100 mis for $0.50/mile round trip. If you need a winter project that will be ready to rock this spring, this is your deal!

New: Venhill 888 fast-action twistgrips

Fri, 01 Mar 2013

CONTROL specialist Venhill has launched its new 888 range of bike-specific fast action twistgrips.  Supplied complete with the company's top of the range Featherlight cables, the kits are designed for a straightforward replacement of the factory-fitted equipment.  Bike-specific kits are now available for the Honda CBR600F, Kawasaki ZX-6R/ZX-10R, Suzuki GSX-R600/750, Triumph 675 Daytona and Yamaha R1/R6, among others, with prices from £105. Here's Venhill's description of the new product: "Manufactured with a robust CNC machined alloy body, the 888 fast action twistgrip provides a choice of two settings and is supplied with two rotors so that riders can select the throttle action that best suits the riding conditions.  Settings can be changed swiftly by undoing the two set screws securing the throttle body and changing the rotor. On the fastest setting there is 80° of rotation, (taking up 36mm of the cable), which is typically 45% faster than 'standard' throttles.

Not the most sensible of commuters..

Wed, 04 Apr 2012

This is the white and gold 2012 Yamaha R1. It's also the bike I shall be commuting on for the next 8 months. The crouched riding position and murderous amounts of power may not be ideally suited for the London grind, but with plenty of track action planned I have to make some compromises. There are three fresh colours to choose from.

Intermot 2012: 2013 Yamaha FZ8 Announced

Tue, 02 Oct 2012

Along with the announcement of the updated 2013 FJR1300A, Yamaha also announced that its naked middleweight roadster, the FZ8, has received a handful of updates for 2013. Key among the modest improvements is revised EFI programming for smoother, snappier throttle response, and front suspension is now full adjustability. The fork has new preload and rebound adjustments atop the fork legs, while a new compression damping adjuster is located at the bottom of the fork.
