Thanks for sharing those "YZM" pics ! Way cool ! I do remember reading a mag MANY years ago that Yamaha was dabbling in developing an open class liquid, but It obviously never got off the ground. Possibly the engine simply fell short of the 55ish hp tier of the "other" brands ? , or maybe Yamaha was looking ahead at "YZ###F" evolution 4 stroke power even back in the mid 80's ?
