1998 Yamaha R1 Dyno check and service

By 23rd April 2012 On the Dyno, Rare Groove, Yamaha

One of the first R1s to be registered in the UK – according to the owner – and in lovely condition still. It’s got 26,000 miles on the clock and is wearing a Dyna-Mite underseat exhaust. The owner bought it in for an interim (fluids) service, a new chain & sprocket kit and a run-up on the Dyno just to make sure everything was ok … and it was. 141bhp at the back wheel, to be precise.


Now that's a real man's motorcycle, they don't make 'em like they used to, etc, etc...
