Ok, sometimes these things need to be done, but got quite a bit going on at the moment and I really do need some space!!

So Yamaha RD400F Daytona Special, as restored by me and detailed On the Aircooled RD Club Forum in the Restoration  Section

Its a Canadian Daytona, extermely rare, the only version to be Badged Daytona Special apart from the American Daytona, no messing around with that fiddly emissions gear, mechanically as the UK bike

I could spend an age listing the parts, but NOS forks, Indicators, Clocks, Front Master Cylinder, Chainguard, gear lever, brake lever, Wiring Loom, Switchgear, Bars, fitted with Metzlers, repainted (frame painted, NO powdercoat) Genuine Cables and Hoses, (though the rear was replated) NOS front Caliper, NSR Nick restored rear, rear master cylinder rebuilt with Genuine Repair Kit, fitted new chain and Genuine sprockets

Oh...and a pair of NOS 2R9 Pipes with Genuine Rubbers :o

Crank was rebuilt and rebored using Genuine 2R9 0.5 Pistons, so she is really tight with only 250 miles on the Clock

All of the nuts and bolts are genuine, no stainless or cap screws (a few washers and spring washers are stainless)

With the sale will come the correct KMH clock as fitted to  the bike (NOS) if you want to display as manufactured

The bike is Taxed and Tested until April 2013


The bike won Best RD400 at the Aircooled RD Club Rally last year, and was Second Yamaha at the Lotherton Hall VJMC Show

Its scary when you realise what its taken to do this bike  :(

Bad points.......

The seat cover and Strap is original and has a little bit of wear but no cuts

Tiny chip on front mudguard, but I will sort that with the local touch up firm

I dread to think what it's cost to build this bike in correct parts alone 

Dont forget last year the New out of a crate one made over 10K!!!

On 10-Feb-13 at 21:41:55 GMT, seller added the following information:

Forgot to mention, the bike was subject of a 6 Page feature in Practical Sportsbikes, and a copy comes with the bike!

On 13-Feb-13 at 21:06:36 GMT, seller added the following information:

To answer further questions

The bike does have matching Numbers to each other and the logbook.

The bike will need "running in" and due to it having new baffles in the exhaust the wadding will need removing at approx 500 miles (I am told that the dealers did this at first service)

The Seat Pan is the original metal item and is in  perfect original condition


I can deliver the bike (uk mainland) for Diesel and a Bacon Buttie!
