From Cycle World 8/97
This page was originally created to share tech tips for the Yamaha YSR50, Yamaha FZR400, and Mazda Miata, but my other automotive-related interests eventually made its way onto this page.
I'm no longer actively maintaining this site.

4/18/99: After having the bike sit around for 2 1/2 years I finally fixed it by swapping out the cylinder and piston. The bike runs again!!
PS I don't do a whole lot with motorcycles anymore, please refer your questions to one of the more active discussion lists... see Links section.
I don't have one anymore. There is a nice FZR400 yahoogroup if you haven't joined. I really don't have a whole bunch of info on the FZR400 so please direct your questions to the group.
Note: I no longer own the FZR400.
