Just yesterday we featured the Kawasakhi W3 and today we are back with a Yamaha SR400…Looks like its Japanese custom fever at Moto Rivista with today’s feature coming from our friends at Motor Rock.
Without a doubt the Yamaha SR400 is a popular thumper for custom builds in Japan. When I was at Uni a good friend of mine had a Yamaha SR400 and to be honest that bike was like a little rocket, riding this single cylinder you will experience the advantages of the lightweight, compact and slim body. The Yamaha SR400 was born with an air-cooled, 4stroke, overhead cam, 2 valves, and a single cylinder engine.
Motor Rock is full with a variety of custom builds around Kawasaki, Yamaha, Honda, Suzuki, Triumph and Harley-Davidson. Each and every motorcycle at Motor Rock is unique in every way and features a lot of hand fabricated one-off Motor Rocks parts. If you are working on a custom project and looking for some quality hand fabricated parts check out Motor Rocks online store for some custom goodies.
Lets take a look at Motor Rocks custom SR400, the bike is built around a stock Yamaha SR400 and features a sheet rail processed custom frame. The 534cc engine is assembled with Mikuni/TMR carburetor and fitted with Motor Rock’s 69Megaphone full exhaust down.
The fabrication work features the one off custom fuel tank, oil tank and a rear fender with all fabrication work done in their workshop.
At the front the bike features Motor Rock’s front fork cover and 69Bar drag style standard handlebars mounted on their antique handle clamps. At the rear the bike houses Easyriders short suspension with one-off Razzle Dazzle seat. The finished Motor Rock SR 400 rolls on 21-inch front wheels and 15-inch rear while the front wheel is wrapped in the Avon/SP MKII the rear features Dunlop tires.
Other parts on the bike came from Motor Rocks online product catalog, which includes knee look mirror, throttle holder, billet kick pedal, handle bar switch all these available at their online store.
