Not for the faint of heart. I have for sale a 1984 Yamaha YZ490. I recently acquired this dirt bike and have decided that it is just too much power for my purposes. I don't know a whole lot about the history of this bike. but it appears to have an aftermarket pipe and silencer. gas tank cover. handlebars. rear sprocket and more that I'm sure I'm missing. It runs strong. (and LOUD!) but is very difficult to start. (I have read that this is a common problem with these bikes. prepare for a sore right leg. ) It will need brake work and probably new tires before being rideable. Brakes function. but are very weak. The frame has also been sprayed blue at some point. making the VIN on the frame faint. but readable. Engine and Frame codes match. NO TITLE. but can make a Bill of Sale. This bike has a lot of potential and will make a great project for someone who wants a beast of a vintage open-class bike. Feel free to contact me with any questions and I will answer to the best of my ability. I would prefer a local pick-up. but will assist with shipping if buyer arranges and pays for it. Thanks for looking!
