1983 Yamaha XV920 Tour Deluxe

Here's a great bike for the open road rider. Are you a:
- Vintage Japanese motorcycle collector?
- Virago or vintage Yamaha collector?
- Vintage touring enthusiast?
- Touring enthusiast on a budget?
Today's your lucky day. This is a factory touring version of the 1983 Yamaha XV920 Virago with some tasteful and performance enhancing upgrades. Here we go:
- Reduced: $2800
- 36.5k miles. Very clean, runs like a top.
- Clean title in hand, registration good through November, 2020 (just paid).
- New starter and new idler gear. It still sounds like a "box of rocks" like is should and it fires right up every time.
- XV920R fuel tank which looks way better than stock. This thing is worth $$$ by itself (look it up). New petcocks, fuel line and inline filters.
- The stock brakes on this bike were essentially for aesthetics only. Single wacky caliper with angled pads that just never worked right. So, I replaced the entire front end with one from a 1982 XJ750J Maxim. I had the forks fully refreshed, I completely cleaned and rebuild both calipers with new seals, I built brand new custom stainless braided brake lines, and I installed a freshly rebuilt front master cylinder from a 1983 Yamaha Venture Royale. New pads too of course. Holy cow what a difference! Bonus: The new XJ front end has both adjustable forks (air and clickers) and adjustable bars.
- With a wholly upgraded front end, the nasty stock rear shock needed replacing too so on went a brand new Hagon M62062 shock from England. Handling is now really amazing compared to stock. Lots of adjustability both front and back for either single rider twisties or 2-up fully loaded touring.
- Tires are a few years old but lots of tread left.
- All touring bags are in amazing shape both mechanically and aesthetically. Fully removable for overnight stays in hotels. I'm not the original owner of this bike but it has spent many years being babied and it shows.
- The original cassette stereo was shot so I replaced that with a nice hidden bluetooth amp and two tasteful speakers on the fairing. Sounds great when standing still but hard to hear when riding at freeway speeds. I also added a nice phone holder with integrated USB charging.

All ABS is in surprisingly great shape. The top of the tank has some scuffs but nothing crazy. I got this bike as a loaner for friends in case we ever wanted to go on a street ride but that doesn't seem to be happening too often so out it goes. Price is fairly firm and I can possibly include the original parts but certainly not at a huge discount. This is a rider's bike and would make a great addition to anyone's collection. Available now in West Sacramento.

What are the bags and fairing from? I don't recall them being offered on the xv920 back in the day.

Hey MM. The "Tour Deluxe Accessory Package" was available through the dealer for either the 750 or the 920. Check out this page from CycleWorld, 1985.

Retro fab!

Can I pay you $10 to come over to your house, drop acid and just sit in your garage and stare at your bike for 12 hours?

Acid stares are $2/hour Gabe. BUT, think how great it would be to drop acid and then ride it home. Lucy in the sky with Yamaha!

Every time I see a bike with a Windjammer or Vetter-like fairing I can only think of Purple Rain.

Been there, done that. It's okay until you're waiting at a stoplight and the handlebars start melting. And then you're trying to pick a parking space and you can't make a decision because they're all so good and who are you to judge which is best?

Happy New Year all. Found these fairing extensions in the garage. They block wind from your knees:



You can see them installed on this bike:



BARF price drop to $3k too but that's pretty much the bottom.

By some weird cosmic anomaly, this bike is still available! Maybe we drop the price to $3,000 but given the pedigree of this bike (Prince's old bike...just look at the picture), I don't think I can go much lower.

Turns out I can go a bit lower. $2800.

I just rode it a week or two ago and it's really fun so I'm fine with keeping it too. I just need to find more garage space...
