Yamaha RZ or R1-Z to give it its official moniker .. which caused confusion when they called their later 1 litre Sports job an R1 also .. 

so these were always referred to these as RZ's .. either way a YPVS lump in a trellis frame ..

If I put those bars on and removed my NSR fairing I might ride it a bit more. I wonder what front end I would need?

Same same Jazz


When I traveled with the carnival back in the ‘80’s, an independent’s son had a 3-wheel HD golf cart powered by a KZ-1100.

When I saw him the next year he had it in a 4-wheel cart...

Could some one please explain to me the reasoning for the plenum that the pipes go into and the tail pipe comes out of. Is it just for the look or a technical reason . I have never seen anything like this before. Thank in advance Randell

As Mogandave has already mentioned it could be a catalytic converter .. The bike looks like it may have fuel injection and if that is the case and it is a " closed loop " system then a cat' and lambda sensor are needed to monitor and clean up the emissions output .. But could possibly be just following the latest fashion of a collector silencer with short exit pipe/stub .. Buells had something not dissimilar for yrs though the Bu' silencer looked like it had been nicked offa truck ..
