Review of the 1994 Yamaha YZF 750 R:
The forgotten hero
Author: Darth Rufus, 2007-03-07|
Ruined by Yamaha´s poor paint schemes and the Fireblade, one of the finest 750´s of the nineties will not be forgotten !
Precise and stable are the first words I have for this bike. My previous bike was a Suzuki RF900R. I wanted a 750 race rep and with only my fabulous RF900 available some hard bargaining was required. |
I left the dealer with my 94 YZF 750R complete with Harris slip on can and crash bungs. Compared to the RF there was a little less power in the mid range, but as the rev´s increased so did the power.
I also noticed the lower seat and reduced weight. The biggest surprise on the long journey home was the high speed comfort over an hour of motorway riding. Much more comfortable then the RF which is more of a sports tourer.
My YZF appears to have a juddering problem in the clutch when taking off in first. Apart from that this is a properly sorted and rapid 750 race rep.
Braided lines will be my first task followed by a new finish in jet black. Lets face it, who wants a proper race rep with lilac and orange finish !
Overall a great value top spec hard core every day madness mobile. ( either this or a blade ! )
