Yamaha Human Sports PDF
« on: March 29, 2020, 06:23:11 AM »
James P found a cool booklet from years back that may be of interest  :)

I'll let him take the stage:

I recently found this booklet and thought it may be of interest to forum members.

It contains more than 30 pages of text, so it would be a lot of work to translate and transcribe. However, 'translation-on-the-fly' reveals it to be a sort of introduction to road racing for those contemplating taking up the sport. There are chapters dealing with characteristics of racing machines and how to set them up, carry out maintenance etc. The text refers particularly to the 1987 TZ250 (2KM), which I presume was Yamaha's latest machine at the time the booklet was published (I couldn't find a publishing date).

There are quite a few close-up views of the bike dispersed throughout the book, so it may also be a handy source of info for anyone restoring this model. There are also chapters on riding preparation and technique, with Yamaha team rider Hiroyuki Kawasaki sharing his experiences in various aspects.

It's linked on the main page under 'MISC' :

Or if you just want download it:
