The Yamaha FSX750 Fazer was a motorcycle produced by Yamaha from the early 1980s until the mid-1990s. The US version was the FZX700 Fazer, imported only in 1986 and 1987, with a 50 cc smaller engine displacement to avoid import tariffs on motorcycles larger than 700 cc.

Its engine was a retuned version of the four-stroke DOHC twenty-valve four-cylinder inline engine found in the FZ750, producing ten BHP less than the 105 of the sports model, but having a stronger midrange. It had an almost solid rear wheel, low seat, and more chrome than would normally be expected. Unusually, it had downdraft carburettors built into the design of the thirteen-litre tank. It could reach a top speed of 131 mph.

Engine[edit]

The engine was a liquid cooled in-line four, four-stroke. A 68.0mm bore x 51.6mm stroke result in a displacement of just 749.0 cubic centimeters. Fuel was supplied via a double overhead cams/twin cam (dohc).

Drive[edit]

The bike has a 6-speed transmission. Power was moderated via the wet plate.

Chassis[edit]

It came with a 110/90-16 front tire and a 140/90-15 rear tire. Stopping was achieved via dual disc in the front and a single disc in the rear. The front suspension was a 41 mm while the rear was equipped with a dual preload adjustable. The FZX750 Fazer was fitted with a 3.43 Gallon (13.00 Liters) fuel tank. The bike weighed just 449.74 pounds (204.0 Kg). The wheelbase was 60.2 inches (1529 mm) long.
