Yamaha sold the GTS in the USA for only two years, ut wearing a thirteen grand price tag, hey weren't that popular. Shame though, ince the bike was way ahead of it's time with a fuel-injected and retuned FZR1000 motor, BS, nd James Parker's wild RADD front end. The forkless front looked odd, ut offered significant improvements in stability, urning, nd braking over a conventional setup. The Barber museum has one, nd even the Guggenheim displays one as part of the epic Art of the Motorcycle exhibit. But that's all for a ho-hum normal GTS.
Sporting the rear end from a third-generation VFR, his GTS is truly the only one like it in the world. The rear end was re-engineered by a master machinist/mechanic when the bike was almost new (1995). Since then, he original owner has put tens of thousands of miles on this bike. Rear shock was replaced with a 3-way adjustable Ohlins with a remote reservoir and lowered a few years ago, ntroducing a faint headshake. All suspension & travel components were gone through and confirmed to be in good shape and well-adjusted. I purchased the bike from the original owner and restored the bike to the stock ride height with custom dog bones made with a former AMA Pro mechanic, estoring the bike's stability. All that's needed is minor tuning at this point, ut I have other projects calling my attention.
Formerly owned by the proprietor of the San Francisco Bay's largest Big-4 Japanese dealership and maintained by the shop. Has been a garage queen in my care; oil changed annually and fuel stabilized, ike otherwise maintained exclusively on a battery tender.
