30th Anniversary SR400

Posted on January 11, 2009 by Scott in Classic. 2 comments

Yamaha is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the SR400/500 motorcycle series. This is a limited edition 2008 SR400 they have released. I am guessing it will be quite hard to get your hands on one. I would almost keep it stock if i bought one. no point turning one into a cafe racer. they do look beautiful as is. You can still buy these in Japan at reasonable prices. There’s also rumours that Yamaha are going to stop producing the SR400 in 2009 so these could really be collectors items.

I have decided to purchase a Yamaha SR400 for my Cafe Racer project. After having a look around on and it looks like you cant get a Sr400 for less than 6-7k. Now i have looked around on some japanese websites and there are so many sweet sr400’s for around 200,000 Yen (which is around $2500 Australian). I know it is going to cost me shipping one over, plus the compliance plates but i am going to give it a go. Plus I have some contacts in Japan that might be able to help me.

This is one website in the north of Japan that has some great buys…

This looks like a pretty straight Yamaha sr400 for 200,000 yen. Has 14,000km on it but thats not too bad…
