1998 Yamaha YZF600R


Seriously underrated bike


Nothing yet really, bulb behind rev counter blown.

Showing signs of light rust under swinging arm (common problem).

General Comments:

Good quick bike for a 600, even when two-up.

Could really do with a more supportive seat; I get a numb bum after about 150 miles, but apart from that, it's a great all round bike.

Fuel economy is A1; I commute to work, a round trip of 20 miles daily, and it does it on £5. If you ride it hard, it's still good.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
