Yamaha 400CC Scooter - 2010 - 15K Miles - New Belt
Sorry, I do not have pictures.
My INFO on a Yamaha 400 is limited (I swapped Scooters - my 400 Burgman with a guy one day that had a 400 Yamaha). Yamaha is OK, but I do like the Burgman seating better. Other than that performance is about the same.
Call Bill - 865 654 6195 for more information.
Bill says no damage except gas gauge reads off. He said he tried to measure gas with a rod one time and must have damaged the float for the gauge (or something). He said it reads 1/2 when empty. It has a recently replaced drive belt and he said tires are OK.
Reason for selling Scooter is: He is elderly (in 80s I think) and has a health issue (I will not share that info), but also has a knee that gives out. So, he quit riding for fear of dropping the bike on it's right side and my opinion is probably should not be riding because of the other issue.
He did not set a price -- when I asked, he said thinking between $2000 and $3000 as he was offered $2000 at a dealer.
He lives in Kodak, TN area a few miles from Jct 66 and 139 (south of Exit 407 of I-40).
I have known Bill for sometime, he made a few rides with me some years ago. He had a Honda 250CC Scooter then and he and his wife rode all over on that 250CC. Have not really been associated with him for some years, except to run into him occasionally. I saw him today at the SR Center St Pat's Event.
I would vouch for the fact that he takes care of stuff. That said, I do not know much about this scooter and have not seen it.
I base my "care for stuff" statement on the fact that he has a 1931 HUPMOBILE that he works on and has had for years (even has wood spoke wheels on it). He drives it locally on occasion, met he and his wife in it at Arby's a couple weeks ago.
