This is my 1985 Yamaha RZ500N.  The engine is a liquid cooled V4 2 stroke equipped with electronic powervalves.  Extremely limited and never sold in the U.S., I am the second owner of this bike, obtaining and importing it from the original owner in Alberta, Canada (it's actually my second RZ500 - my original one being imported in 1985 brand new from Ontario, Canada).  This bike is currently registered in the great state of Texas, USA.  It is currently insured in California.  I have owned it a little over 7 years and it has 13K original miles (I purchased it with approximately 8500mi.) and I rode it daily until buying my Hayabusa (seen in background).  Upon purchase I have made the following modifications:

          New top-end...all machine work performed by Gary Shumake at Spec II Performance.
          Nikon 550cc large-bore kit
          Ported and Polished by Gary Shumake
          Carbon Tech Carbon Fiber Reeds
          Nikon Chambers
          New DID X-Ring Chain
          New Sprockets (Sprocket Specialties) stock ratio
          New Ferodo high performance brakes
          Barnett Clutch
          Excellent rubber front and rear - brand new Metzeler ME1 on rear

This bike has never been dumped, and other than normal wear and tear associated with 21 years/13K miles the only flaws are a small dent in the left side of fuel tank (see pics) and a crack in the right side panel (see pics).  I also have the factory parts (i.e. exhaust, turn signals, etc.).  It also has the rare factory seat cowling.  The bike is not on premix and still runs the factory oil injector (Yamalube). 

The bike is located in Santa Clarita, just north of Los Angeles.  Please feel free to call me at work          (310)568-3420 or at home on evenings or weekends (661)263-8136 or at my e-mail: ; for more information.  $9500 firm (currently selling on Ebay for 8.5K - 11K).  Thank you, Victor.

"Under the Hood"

FLAWS: small dent/scratch from handlebar on left side of tank (common on RZ500's as the steering stop was located slightly off specification).

FLAWS: Cracked side panel on the right tail section.  Not too noticable...the previous owner cracked it while serv-
incing the battery.  Happened due to the cold weather in Alberta.

Always garaged & covered
