Make or Break? Yamaha R6 5EB.

Make or Break? Yamaha R6 5EB. “They still look the part.” Yamaha got it right with the looks of the original R6. For some it needs to be red and white, but for many it’s the blue ones that have…

 

Flogged It Friday! Yamaha FZR600 CDI.

Flogged It Friday! Yamaha FZR600 CDI. “Do these CDI units play up much?” Electrical problems are often the hardest to pinpoint. One minute you’ve got sparks, the next you haven’t. So what do you do next? The obvious starting point…

 

Make or Break? Yamaha FJR1300 2002.

Make or Break? Yamaha FJR1300 2002. “That looks massive!” The FJR1300 is a very big slice of motorcycle, it is also pretty heavy to move about. Both of these things fade away once you ride it, but my first impressions are…

Flogged it Friday! Yamaha R1 5JJ CDI.

Flogged it Friday! Yamaha R1 5JJ CDI. “Do CDI units ever go wrong?” Yes, pretty often too judging by the number of units I sell over the months. If you’ve lost your spark there can be all manner of reasons…

 

Make or Break? Yamaha RS125.

Flogged It Friday! Yamaha RD350LC frame.

Flogged It Friday! Yamaha RD350LC frame. “You seen the prices of RD350LC’s these days?” Yes, shitty ones start at around 6, that is grand not hundred. Minters can command over £10,000 without trying too hard. There is no sign of…
