Description Yamaha FZR 1000 Genesis

Reluctant Sale of my beloved 1987 FZR1000 Genesis.


I bought this bike in May 2013 from a guy in Derby after I
had been looking for some time. I always wanted one when I was younger but I
was struggling to find an honest version. I had it transported home on a
trailer in a sorry but running state. The previous owner had many bikes and the
FZR had stood hardly used at the back of his garage for seven years.

I had it serviced and MOT’d then rode it for a few months. I
then started to give it a refurbishment with the help of my Dad who was a panel
beater/sprayer for more than 50years and this was the last job he did after
retiring. It took him more then 60 hours to do the paint work. We changed the
white to a pearl white to give it a fresher look and many of the decals are
hand sprayed to the exact replica of the original. This proved more challenging
than I realised but the end result was well worth it.

Once we had finished the bike I rode it twice and got very
reluctant to get it dirty. I do a bit of touring abroad and this was not the
bike for that so I purchased a Blackbird and have not ridden it since, other
than in and out of the garage on occasion.

I swore I would never sell it and had every intention to
ride it this summer but the Blackbird got replaced by a VFR and the FZR stood

With work and kids and rarely riding the VFR I think its
time to let it go. I almost sold it a year ago but changed my mind at the last
minute, despite a very generous offer from a guy who wanted it to complete his
bike display collection.

Please see the following list of all that I can remember
that was done to it.

The bike is currently SORN and the last MOT expired in June
2015 with no advisories. To give you an idea of how little it has been used,
the MOT in 2001 showed almost 28000 miles and it is now currently showing

The bike also has the rare rear seat cowling that is not
shown in the photos. It took me another year to source one of these that wasn’t
damaged or cracked. I got it from America and it is also now on the bike and
sprayed as the original and upholstered to match the seat and in perfect

New pads

New EBC Clutch

New Fuel cap

New Stainless headers

New end can

New Wheel bearings

New tyres

Seat re foamed and more modern effect pattern leather design

K&N air filter

All new fairing bolts

Still have the original grab rail for it also

+ more that I can’t remember


Please note that I am not desperate to sell and am not
interested in text messages asking what is your minimum! Only genuine phone
calls please for a genuine UK classic bike.
