I regret to sell my loyal 1992 Yamaha TDM850, I have bought another motorcycle and someone is going to get a heck of a deal. I always wanted a TDM, I'd read stories about how versatile they were and how they could do anything and that they were the bike that created the whole ADV segment. I've put a ton of miles on this bike and it's been nothing but reliable, powerful, fun and comfortable. It will need a new seat cover and that's about it. The 5 valve Yamaha Genesis 850 motor is very powerful and sometimes you'll have difficulty keeping the front wheel on the ground. It has a new battery, completely rebuilt carbs, new fuel petcock, new fork seals and a new CDI, Correctly jetted Yoshimura Exhaust (sounds excellent)- The tires are older, but have decent tread.Here are the numbers: Engine – 849 cc liquid-cooled, 5 Valve per cylinder 4-stroke, twinBore & stroke – 89.5mm x 67.5mmPower – 80bhp @ 7500rpmTorque – 56 ft-lb @ 6000rpmTransmission – 5-speed chain final driveFrame – steel twin sparBrakes – 2 x 298mm discs 4-piston calipers, 245mm disc 2-piston caliperWheels – 110/80 x 18, 150/70 x 17Fuel capacity –  5.5 Gals Dry weight – 447 lbsTop speed – 130mph+Based upon the XTZ750 Super Tenere of the late 80’s the 5-valve per cylinder Yamaha engine is a great piece of engineering to work with. The original 360-degree crank design was updated in 1996 to a smoother 270-degree item making the big yam feel much more like a V-twin than an inline motor ever should. The forks were made beefier expanding to 43mm, while the radiator shrunk in size and the tank grew to a full 20-litres. owners have reported as much as 55 to the gallon giving the TDM a great range between fill ups. The TDM feels more like a comfy armchair than a motorway muncher. Although not the prettiest of bikes the TDM can lay claim to being one of the most useful, able to speed along and impressive rates thanks to its sweet chassis, commute in the urban jungle or load lug too. Those big wide bars allow the big yam to take on a nimble, traffic-dodging role when required, while the narrowness of the engine, and bike in general, certainly help it in this task. Even with such lithe proportions the fairing and screen do work well up to and a shade above the legal limits, keeping much of the wind blast off the rider and reducing any long term fatigue even further still. The mirrors are quite unique in modern motorcycling as they actually give a good view of what’s behind you. Trying to find a machine that does what the Yam does is tough.Checkoutouryoubuevideo...https://youtu.be/kpKa72RN-eE
