87 ysr80


Figured I'd toss it up here, someone close to the border might want it. It's a jdm model with nsr50 running gear, bigger front brake, dual piston caliper and rear disc. Was going to keep it for a city run around bike but plans have changed so it time for her to go, if it stays, it will live the rest of her life in my basement.

  • Wow papers?

  • Yup, I have a Ontario title in my name.

  • Michael Shunsby match the rz

  • this bike won't last long and somebody's going to snatch it up, and it's 80 cc!

  • ready to drive to Canada lol

  • Will it pass through customs since it doesn't have a factory engine?

  • I believe the Canadian YSR 80 is Factory

  • Bob Wheeler the brakes are custom though right

  • it does look like it has a large front rotor

  • and the disc brake in the rear too

  • Dual front

  • It's a Japanese import 80. The forks, arm, wheels and brakes are from a nsr50.

  • I can't see the other side

  • 80cc would fly!

  • ryan those just bolt right up and work or mods had to be done?

  • Not sure. I bought it how you see it.

  • single front disc brake Brandon Friedman

  • This is a cool bike. I remember seeing it when you bought it. I love the 88 blue/yellow scheme. It's probably my favorite but I like the gold wheels that originally came on them.

  • Dual piston. I read wrong

  • Looks good! Hard to tell from these photos, but it doesn't appear to be a Japanese 80. A true Japanese 80 has a 100 kph speedo, tachometer, solid brake rotor, smaller front turn signals, flush mount rear signals (like yours but with a different plate mount), headlight on/off switch, headlight has a bulb you can change, rear grab bars, and VIN tag / all warning decals in Japanese. The VIN is actually short too.

  • Carlos Parnala III no it won't, if it's really an 80. At least it wouldn't when I imported 4 YSR's from Canada10 years ago. In order to bring them in legitimately, you have to give Yamaha North America the VIN; they will write you a letter stating that the bike does (or in this case does not) comply with US emissions and DOT standards (such as the width between the turn signals and other useless things). If it's an 80, that's a no-go. The speedometer is a no-go too. But some border agents will let that slide. There are other ways around this (use a bonded agent, register in a state that doesn't care about small-displacement bikes, etc) but they each have drawbacks of their own.

  • Tony Tsavdaris pick this up

  • It is a real jdm ysr. Has all of the stuff you listed but the speedo was swapped for a fzr but I have the stock one.

  • And the grab bars have been removed.

  • A lot of work in that bike. Honda swing, forks, tripple, rear sets, brakes. Custom sprocket. Mounting the shock. Bad bike!

  • I'd just swap everything over to a us frame and store the original. I've done that with bike I brought into Canada.

  • I asked a friend that imports from Europe and I remember he said if stuff doesn't match the can take it from you and it goes straight to the crusher!

  • Yes it will pass customs... Papers are only on the frame...

  • Well, importing from Canada wasn't that extreme! As I recall, on the first bike, I had the wrong speedometer; the Border Patrol gave me the option of importing the bike as a personal possession instead of as a motor vehicle. But then I wouldn't have the paperwork necessary to register it in my state. Instead, I drove back to Montreal, spent the night in a parking lot to a motorcycle shop, and bought a used MPH speedometer from a junker out back. I learned from that bike how to bring in the others...

  • The title matches the frame numbers, not sure if the engine has any numbers that match the frame.

  • Ryan JDM bike engines are just stamped 2GX, 2AL etc...
