Yamaha RZ350

Hey everyone,

I have been offered a mint 85 yamaha rz350 for trade for one of my pistols. It has 4500 original miles and runs great, doesnt need any work from what I can tell. Does anyone have any info about this bike? Google taught me its a 2 stroke 350cc putting around 60hp to the wheels stock. Will this be fast? Will it be fun?

It will break 100mph and as a two stroke it will have a fun power band. The issue with street two strokes however can be the rate at which the top end wears out. But it will be fun and should fast.

Just realized 2 strokes need mixed gas. Meh I think I might pass on it although it is cool

No, they had Yamaha's "Autolube" system. You had a second small tank of 2-stroke oil.

Those things were wheelie-machines back then. Lots of better performing bikes around these days, but I'd look closely at it.

I was walking across the parking lot in college in the early 80's and a guy I had worked with came rocketing across the parking lot on his RD-400 on the rear tire. I'd love to own one.
