Hi everybody
After waiting for ages I finally took delivery of a YB7 # 141 that I bought out of Japan with help from Maurice at Raider .

First impressions where very positive & how small it is !

Checked the fluids , new battery & some fresh fuel & it started straight away .

Cleaned up the back brake caliper as it was sticking , threw on a number plate & went for a spin . Just a quick trip around the block , 20 kms , over all it ran really well , everything works & rode like you would expect from a Bimota 400 .
Nice sharp brakes , taught handling .
Smiles all around !!

A nice way to start the new year !

They use the FZR400R SP 1WG engine. I think they have the Yamaha downpipes with the EXUP, if so look after them because they're getting hard to find.

dbsteve, if you haven't seen it already, have a read of the post in the Bimota Events section about the Bimota display at this years BSFoS.

Hope to see you there!
