Thread: 1988 Yamaha radian yx600

  1. #1

    Default 1988 Yamaha radian yx600 SOLD!

    Hello all, yes i know im new to the forum. but i really need this bike sold.
    and i would love it to go to someone who would take care of it, as it is a pretty rare. but not highly sought after, bike.

    heres the low down.


    its a 1988 yamaha radian.
    completely STOCK
    600cc.
    4 cyl
    6-speed
    Mileage is 18,9xx


    things i did to it:

    *New NGK plugs
    *oil changed 10 miles ago, with valvoline motorcycle 4-stroke 20w50 and yamaha filter
    *New air filter
    *cleaned up the chain, lubed it up.
    *went over every single nut and bolt on the bike *do every year*
    *pulled the carbs off, tore them down completely, replaced the float bowl seals, and went through the entire carbs with a can of carb clean and a fine tooth comb. they are 100% perfect.
    *polished the intake and outlet of the carbs.
    *took the bike in to a buddys shop, and had the rims checked for true, and had new tires put on.
    *reconditioned the new battery. topped it up, and trickle charged it.
    I know there is more than i am missing.

    all the listed thing i have done were at the start of this season, and have less than 500 miles on them

    there are a few bad things.
    few scuffs on the case, and the mufflers, a few chips on the tank.
    there are no mirrors
    forks are soft. may need seals, or just new fluid.

    I love this bike. i would never get rid of it, except i just wrecked my car, and need one bad.

    im located in paw paw, mi. 49079

    Its HIGH, but $2000. extremely negotiable.

    If I was TRYING to be rude I would of come right out and told you "you're asking to much for your bike". That said, I have deleted the link. You are right, NADA is just a guide.
    The thing is, this was your first post here, no intro, nothing to contribute, just offering up your 22 year old bike with issues. Good luck with the sale.

    well for not introducing myself ido apologize. i just happened to stumble across this site yesterday. i didnt mean to offend you, or anyone else on this site.

    i am sorry that my bike offends you, no, actually im not. im not trying to force you, or anyone into buying it. i will be a good forum member, and try to contribute where i can. as i plan on staying around as i have a 2000 gsxr that needs to put back together, and i need to buy a few things for it.

    With that said, lets get this thread back on topic.

    i am open to ALL offers on my bike. as i need to sell it and get a car.
