1986 YAMAHA YZ490S
Nearly everything has been replaced and I chased up as many NOS genuine Yamaha parts as I could find from both Yamaha japan and Internet and the bike only has around 20hrs ride time since being built.
Every piece of plastic is new (except tank, that was restored) and are genuine Yamaha apart from the side plates, all bearings in the linkage/swingarm/shock are new, the front brakes are new/rebuilt (master cylinder, caliber and rotor), new rear pads.
The motor was built with the cylinder re-bored/honed to 0.50mm oversize And has a forged wiseco pro-life piston kit in it, I replaced the trans with a low hr assembly from the states, new reeds (fibre glass not steel, much snappier power delivery), all bearings/seals/gaskets, new Pro Circuit platinum pipe, 304 stainless muffler and all brackets/mounts (genuine Yamaha) and brand new PWK 38mm keihin carb (this thing barks, rips and snarls and is as revvy as a 125!)
Forks are serviced with new seals, fork boots etc and rear shock was completely rebuilt/re-valved by Hoey Racing with a new shock shaft, seal head kit etc and setup for modern style tracks, it’s mint!
Seats recovered, it has Renthal twin wall bars (RC high bend) with ‘16 YZ450f posts in the original clamps to run the bars and brushguards, probably more I’ve missed.
Only bad thing is rear rim has a repair done (last pic) I haven’t had any trouble with it but to finish it off/make it a showpiece it would new a new rear rim, I built it as I was gunna do VMX but all my mates with old Mxers won’t ride theirs and keep em as showpieces and I wanna update my current ride and need to make space.
Absolutely NO SWAPS unless it’s a deal involving a low he ‘18 onwards Husky FC450, I’m not in a rush to sell and only interested in genuine enquires and offers thanks.
