20 years of ownership 81 Yamaha XV 920 RH discussion forum:
20 years of ownership

20 years of ownership 
AZ Rider said 2005-03-13 15:49:33 
 
I have found my XV920RH to be stone reliable. An easy bike to ride, up to 8/10ths. Very good handling, for a sport touring bike. A bit short of breath at higher rpm, flexible powerband below 5500 rpm. Routine maintenance isnīt too bad. I havenīt had the need to take the bike to a shop for "professional" service yet (19,000 mi). Primative by contemporary standards,but,it does whatīs expected of it and itīs enjoyable to ride. A drawback is that because of the rareness of the VX920RHs,in the U.S., finding parts(tail light lens, exhaust system and chain boots) will be very difficult,if and when I need them. I am an avid mountain biker, you wonīt believe where I have been able to go on the ZXV920RH, on several occasions. Long travel (120mm each end), very adjustable suspension and flexible engine make me wonder what dual purpose tires would do for the bike.
