Selling an RZ350 Telefix fairing in Flea Market:
jumping in with a pic of my 2 84's ones an FJ600, the other is my RZ. the fairing on the RZ is an Emgo one and im going to sell it. I bought a fiberglass oem replica that im going to have painted and i also bought a windshield with rubber trim to go on it. even got a copy of the solo seat cowl. recently mounted it all up, just needs to be painted.
The FJ600 is bone stock.
Very nice pic!
Great Photo!! This picture is like a flashback to my biking life in the late 80's/early 90's, I owned a YPVS 350 and a XJ600 at the same time then, cant say I really miss the XJ even though it was a good bike, would love to have the old powervalve back though!!
I know what you are saying
Although two strokes died in the States after the RZ350....Yamaha kept improving the stroker until the Kyoto meeting in Japan.
Where two strokes like these were put away forever.
The end of the line for the Yamaha family of two stroke sportbikes....3XV
I know this is the RZ350 thread but I don't think anyone would mind f you posted a few more pics from your collection, (including the RGV's).
I like pics
Here are a few more with my RZ near by to keep it RZ related
OMG, do you ever pinch yourself to make sure you're not just dreaming this privileged life you live
Fantastic collection. Thanks for sharing.
No....but I kick myself in the head when it comes time to dig up the exact parts I need many times
updated pic of my RZ, with the headlight cowl and solo seat cowl fitted. rode it another 1000 miles after doing this and sold it to move on to something different. bought a flawless 1983 GS750ES (GSX750ES outside of the US) the same day I sold the RZ. the RZ was an amazing bike, but i had it a few years already and it wasn't getting much attention from me. I still have the FJ though and ride it often.
Had an RZ in the ‘90’s. Thinking of buying another. There’s one available locally, 28,000 miles. Decent, no garage queen. A riders bike. The thing that really has me is it looks like the engine has been gotten into, and I don’t know what has been done. Neither does the current owner. It was done previously. Stock RC’s are pretty good. Modified ones are really all over the map.Any great ideas anyone’s got to throw out to me? Yellow/black is the one I’m looking at buying. Red and white is my bike from the 90s.
Without pulling a cylinder off, it's really a crap shoot. If you buy it, it should be taken apart anyway to replace the dried out crank seals -failure to do so will likely result in seizure down the road due to air leak. Hopefully it was taken apart just to put new rings in it. My biggest fear would be poor porting, especially of the cases. As you know, that can lead to a pretty peaky powerband, with poor streetability. Can it be started and ridden? If so, you'll know pretty quickly. If not, you take your chances. If you go for it, you might want to give yourself lots of room with your offer, in case you have to make things right. New cylinders, etc. add up quick.
Having said all that, it looks like a straight bike and if it's not all buggered inside, you can make it into a beauty pretty easily.
LOVE your old one! I'm guessing you wish you kept it. Speaking form experience, of course
Sold it to buy a 500. When trying to get the paperwork, DMV said something doesn’t look right. Wanted me to bring it in. End of that deal! Nope. Got my deposit back and bought a Ducati...
Would anyone have a nice, working left side horn for an RZ350? I'm in need of one. Thanks
'89? Original or unrestored? Not that it matters, it's beautiful either way.
bit of paintwork. couple of decals. new rear fender. 54000 km's.
me gotta source the proper front rotors.
Yamalama, that’s one fine lookin’ unit!
This was my penance for recently selling my ‘85 RZ, kinda lucked into both of these, ‘85 RD from Germany and ‘84 RZ, from North Carolina.
