PROUD "SP" OWNER IN CANADA
Richmond, British Columbia
Reviewed on June 26, 2000
I pronounce my bike y-"zed"-f750sp and not y-"zee"-f750sp. Anyway, what do you expect from a Canadian??!!! I thank my lucky-stars that I have the privilege of owning the exotic "SP" model because the host of trick-parts that come standard equipment is pretty cool. I'm glad Yamaha...
I pronounce my bike y-"zed"-f750sp and not y-"zee"-f750sp. Anyway, what do you expect from a Canadian??!!! I thank my lucky-stars that I have the privilege of owning the exotic "SP" model because the host of trick-parts that come standard equipment is pretty cool. I'm glad Yamaha saw fit to grace the "SP" with a close-ratio tranny, Keihin fcr39mm flat-slides, FRP solo-seat, endurance windscreen, different black-box, etc. I've since added to the package: AFAM 520 sprockets, RK gold gb520sho chain, kit Y.E.C. exhaust w/deep sump oil pan, 0.5mm over pistons, individual uni filters, ported & polished head, Goodridge Kevlar brake lines, EBC rfa190 pads, kit floats for keihins (faster main jet changes), Ohlins steering damper and Michelin pilots. This bike is an absolute jet and handles incredibly!!! My good friend (an RC30 owner) had the chance to take it out and he came back amazed at how much top-end power my YZF750SP has on tap. He said that as soon as he hit the bike's power band, it was one hell of a rush. Another friend was chasing him on a CBR600f4 and simply got left behind (I was following on a Ducati 916 Strada and all 3 of us ended up evading the cops as we blew by a speed trap at mach 3!!!!). The F4 pilot was saying that the "SP" just kept pulling away and that it wasn't possible to close the distance at all. Needless to say, I'm thrilled that my friends thought so highly of my Yamaha. I plan to add: an Ohlins type 4 shock, Marchesini wheels, Sharkskinz bodywork, Ohlins forks, 1040cc motor, adj-triple clamps, Nissin WSB-spec 6 pot calipers (like Haga's), Brembo rotors and Suzuka 8-hour paint job (haven't decided which paint job yet but I'm leaning heavily in favor for the "Nescafe Can" paint job Circa '92). Track-days are the best because this race-bike really shines in its natural environment.
