      • "Finish may become an issue"

      My missus has been giving me stick for buying a 900 Divi, as she thinks they're old man's bikes.. It was advertised in the local paper and first week I gave it no more than a quick glance, second week I suspected the owner would be open to offers. My bike is a 98/R import with 11,000 miles on the clock. Advertised for £2000, with new MOT, rear tyre, battery, and comes with heated grips and a full set of Nonfango luggage (which would've cost approx £550-600). I'm a motocross and sport's bike man, you might remember me from such impulse buys as ZXR750, ZX9R & TL1000R, off road, YZ250 and lately YZ400 - so me? a sports tourer? with my reputation!!! You heard it here first the YAMAHA 900 Diviersion is a GOOD bike, oil cooled and shaft drive - as basic as you like, instruments you get include a fuel gauge and clock. Seat - 1 off (comfy), under seat space for a U lock, puncture repair kit, oh and a medium size frsh chicken from Tesco (as I found out y'day). On the road, you don't ride the front end, sway thru bends (similar to the lazy steering on KLR650/Dominator/funduro etc), brakes are good, I'm tending to supplement the fronts with more rear brake to balance the bike. Shirt shifting thru the gearbox will see a ton very rapidly - but power delivery is smooth enough for worry free commuting. Suspension's a bit soggy, I guess not much money was spent by Mr Yamaha here, I've whacked mine up to 1 setting off the max front and rear. Because my bike is an import it had these little stickers on the speedo face showing MPH, £30 later from Hein Gercke I had a Motrax KPH converter, this plugs in between speedo and cable - it give a true reading, so 80kph bacomes 80mph - excellent!. Fuel lasts well and riding is surprisingly fun, shaft drive causes no woories and the bike keeps clean cos no oil flung off the chain. They are a basic bike and the ones you do see have high
      ish mileage (compared to sports bikes), and asking prices (I feel are high) a sign of happy owners no doubt. Put it this way, this week's MCN had 2 private ad 900 Divi's for sale - compared to approx 40 Fireblades - you judge. Insurance - 34 yr old 0 NCB TPFT £159 - Bargain, approx £280 fully comp with 4 yrs NCB. Within a few miles I was to the edges off the rear tyre and enjoying myself - the missus has stopped the Old man's bike thing, and my mates have stopped taking the pee and are now asking "so what's it like + can I have a go". I'd buy another.
