My strangely coloured FZR1000

Postby Banned » Thu May 16, 2013 6:57 am

Hello!

Here is my FZR1000 -92. I´ve had it for three years now. Before that it belonged to my father. He lost interest on that bike because it needed some bigger maintenance to do. But that was no problem to me, so I thank´d and fix´d and keep the bike for my self.

I don´t know history for that colour? Never seen another painted like this. Bike is originally brought from Germany. Did Yamaha even make that kind of colour theme? Rear rim is original violet. Front rim is somekind of orange. Rest of graphics are bright pink and violet. Colours are under varnish layer and pretty sunburned on tank etc. That´s why I think those are original or made at the early years of that bike. Someone had also changed brake lines to braided ones. Banjo bolts have same violet colour that Yamaha used. Front fender is made from carbon fiber. Can anyone help me find out what this bike is about, or is this some kind of Miami Vice Günther vision :D

Here is some pictures about the bike.

I think we all know what is happening. Little valve adjustment, needle jet replacing etc...

Well first thing to do is say Hi.

As for the colours of your bike I would have to say that you would hope to hear from some of the forum members that are from the area in Europe where that bike may have been sold because there is no way of knowing if it's stock for absolutely sure without a way to contact it's original place of sale. That being said maybe the registry department in Germany could do a title search on the vin# and tell you if it was ever registered in any other colour. Maybe your Yamaha dealer in your area would be kind enough to run the vin# and see what the factory details on it were.

Hi
I know, this might be a kind of grave-diggin :D , but i guess the previous owner (or one of the owners before him) took the design available at http://www.stardesignracing.com/ak/komp ... mset33.htm even in a different colorshape to put it on a black recolored FZR ;)
There was a black/red design for the genesis here in Europe but this also had red wheels and different shapes of the decals...the black design with lilac wheels had other shapes for the decals...so i guess it was a selfmade colordesign of one of the previous owners with shapes of the originaldesign ;)
An overview about the Modeldesigns of the FZR 1000 available in Europe is here: http://www.fzr-forum.de/technikfaq/inde ... artlang=de

And most times there is a solution..even if its not neccesary an ecominical...:D
