The American street market was sporting mad, and Yamaha felt that this new bike, reminiscent of the sporty models from the late ’70s, would appeal to those who wanted the image but did not have the cash. It could be considered a beginner’s sportbike—but, in truth, in the hands of a competent rider it could show its license plate to a less competent person on a more expensive model. The new Seca II used an air-cooled 4-cylinder, 8-valve motor, a tubular-steel perimeter frame and a half fairing.
Here is a detailed list of the major items that I have replaced or overhauled (where noted some have been done by professionals) on this1994 Yamaha Seca 2.
