A classic UK Yamaha RD400D in fabulous display condition.

EQUIPMENT
Chrome mudguards front and rear, chrome side repeaters, circular orange side reflectors, speedometer, tachometer, ignition switch, turn signal switch, headlight switch, dimmer switch, engine kill switch, neutral indicator, oil light, high beam light, horn, rear footrests, fuel valve, helmet holder, lockable fuel cap.

EXTERIOR
Finished in Competition Yellow as homage to Kenneth Leroy Roberts, the American former professional motorcycle racer and racing team owner. The overall appearance of this thoroughbred can only be described as immaculate with the speed block motif unmarked. The chrome has a mirror finish and the wide black waterproof seat is perfect. All switches, lights and controls work perfectly and the shock mounted instrumentation is back-lit at night with a soft, green glow for maximum visibility. A correct Yamaha tool kit housed in the plastic wallet under the seat is present and the high tensile steel Duplex-cradle frame has been power coated to a very high standard. Adjustable Hagon rear shock absorbers have been fitted to improve comfort. A classic award winner.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The forward inclined 2-stroke torque induction engine has a 398cc displacement and produces 40bhp at 7000rpm. Featuring many advanced features at the time such as Yamahas Autolube system varying the delivery of oil linked to the throttle and engine speed. The sound through the chrome Micron exhaust is fabulous. The 6-speed constant mesh transmission has perfectly selected ratios and a multi-plate clutch running in oil for featherlight changes. (Please note if the motorcycle is to be put to use a running-in period of 500 miles is recommended before full throttle and entry into the power band).

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The RD400D is fitted with stylish cast-alloy wheels and are presented in fabulous undamaged condition. Avon Roadrunner tyres are fitted with front 90/90 H18 and rear 100/90 H18 profiles. Hydraulic 267mm disc brakes front and rear with fully floating brake calipers stop effectively and safely.

HISTORY FILE
First registered on the 28th November 1978 and a UK home market example. Owned by a motorcycle collector of the highest standing and forming part of a jaw dropping collection from Fantic Choppers and Yamaha FS1-Es to Kawasaki Z1s all in concours condition. This motorcycle reflects a no expense spared mentality to the build and a new owner will be delighted with the precise attention to detail. An iconic Yamaha ready for a discerning new owner.
