    spoon32 Huh???

    I found somebody advertising a 1983 RZ350 for sale. I don't believe these were offered in the USA until '84 so I'm assuming it must be a canadian model.
    If so I read the motor did not come with the power valve (YPVS) untill 1984. Can anyone confirm or deny this?

    All RZ's from 83 through 90 had YPVS valves I believe the US only received 84 and 85 models. The pre YPVS bikes were RD 350's

    It should be a RD350LC they came in either black or white. I have a black one thats 99% original...I think the "Elsie" looks more handsome than the later YPVS. In England it was THE bike that every 17yr old wanted when they got their license
