2002 Yamaha R6 - $3800 (Houston, Texas)

Make: Yamaha R-6 2002
Owner: One Owner
Purchased: Towards end of 2002.
Brand NEW: Battery, Front & Rear Dunlop Sport Race Tires, Front Rotors, Front & Rear Brake pads.
Mileage: Approx 12,000 miles
Price Negotiable. I will only accept cash or credit card.

IN A NUT SHELL:
This is an extremely fast bike 0-145+ mph in seconds. Balanced and handles as if brand new. Bike needs a little work; Carburetor tune up/ rear fairing w/seat/ & 2nd gear replacement.


Summary: This Yamaha R-6 2002 was only used for about a year and a half. It has very low mileage for a 2002 model. The mileage is not showing due to the old battery going out, it reads 13,333. Motor-cycle has only been driven periodically for maintenance purposes.

ENGINE (Carbureted): Was taken to a mechanic to be inspected. Is currently running on 3 cylinders due to needing a basic carburetor cleaning/tune up, which as a result, the bike cuts off when idle(not in motion)sometimes, and has a minor leak (common in carbureted motors, when due for tune-up). In spite of cleaning carburetor, motor cycle is extremely fast 0-125 mph in few seconds, with torque still at 125mph to pick up speed to 145+ (that only on 3 cylinders). With bike being carbureted, it is easier to accelerate, and utilize the gas and air combination to its fullest potential, not an option available in fuel injected bike.

HANDLING: Bike Handles and rides extremely well, as if brand new. Balancing seems to be perfect.

BODY: I was teaching a buddy of mine to ride in a neighborhood several years ago, he hit a curb 10 mph, and the rear fairing combo was damaged, with a few nicks and scratches to the bike. Note: People always compliment the bike, even with the rear fairing missing.

GEARS: All gears work, w/the exception of 2nd. 1st gear has so much torque, that it would never slip into 2nd properly. According to the Yamaha dealership, they had a manufacturers call back on 2nd gear for replacements on many 2002 R-6 Models. With 2 gear out, M-cycle is still extremely quick. 2nd gear on a motor cycle, is not like 2nd gear on a car, transition from 1st to 3rd is smoother.

Note: Bike can still seat 2 people on main seat, and is worth noting, with all of the attention you get!
Please feel free to call me at (281) 658-2767 with any questions you may have.
I think I'm gonna pee my pants.

when would be a good time to look at it?

im very interested. and do you know if i can get them to fix the 2nd gear thing and a back seat?





I just called Yamaha and received note that you can purchase an extended warranty. They did not give me a price nor the specifications of the warranty. As for seeing the bike; What location are you coming from? Do you have a valid TX DL/M-Cycle? Whats your offer, if you decide to purchase, & what method of payment would you be using?
