I just sold the same bike in CA. I loved that thing. Did more than a couple track days on it and they were amazing (see avatar). That thing could do it all.

Have fun.

YZF-1000

Congrats on the new ride.

Yeah, you don't see too many YZF 1000's. I think they only made them for 2 years, 96 and 97. Very powerful, versatile, and underestimated bike. Have fun!

close, they made them from either 1996 to 2000 or 2001, cant remember, but they only sent them to the states in 97, the temp gauge on the us models were even left in celcius
