Additions and changes to the site in chronological
Tractor - You've gotta see this. It's a Radian
02/18/06 - Designed a
Frames option for this
website, just to see if I could. Frames are cool,
but do have plenty of disadvantages.
Adrian's '91 Radian
- Adrian sent in two pictures of his '91 Radian with the
rare aqua-marine colored paint. There are
definitely not many of these around!
Crazy People - No
description needed. You'll just have to see this
- Added November 1986 issue of Road Rider.
Anand's Radian - Anand
sent in a new picture with stock mufflers re-installed
instead of the Jardines. Looks good!
Geoff's Radian -
Nicely done in black metal flake paint with custom
decals. Geoff is also the owner of the
Radian with the 1984 GPZ550 fairing. This may be
the bike that got poor Jerry so confused and excited,
bless his heart.
04/30/06 - Finally
something new on Radian Tech-
Yamaha YX600 Radian
Manual in PDF.
It's downloadable in separate Chapters or as a whole.
Thanks, Rich (Cheese), for all the help, advice, and

Andy's Radian - Andy
has 2 Radians. Currently he's riding a black '86

to be painted with a pearl blue base coat with several
coats of clear on top, custom mixed by Wet Paint to
resemble the current Yamaha blue.
Andy's Radian - More
pictures of Andy's Pearl Blue Radian project. That
thing is going to look awesome!
Radian Tech - Better
organization, with a cleaner look. Also, minor
changes to navigation buttons- purely aesthetic.

diagrams... three of them. One is from the owner's
manual, and two are from the service manual.
Radian Links - If you
haven't already seen it, you should check out
Rod's '86 Radian project. Mods include a 919
tank, a GS500 tail section, and a ZX6 mono-shock, and
make for one awesome looking one of a kind bike!
Radian Tech - Finally
finished the PDF version of a 1986 Radian
not to be confused with the
John D's Radian -
Now here's something really cool (literally). John
used oil cooler parts from an FJ600 and an FZ600 to set
up an oil cooler on his Radian. He's also got one
of those rare fancy factory original fairings, and it's
a sharp looking bike. Check it out!
Mike's Radian - Mike is
working fixing up a Radian and doing a special custom
paint job. It's going to be a cool blue with
orange flames. It looks like it's going to be a
killer bike when he's done. He says he'll send
more pictures soon. I'm looking forward to it!
Radian Tech - Improved
bookmarks in the Service Manual. Both the
Manual and the Owner's
Manual are now printable- for now.
Tom's Radian - Tom M. in
Jacksonville, Florida sent in 4 pictures of his metallic
blue Radian. The tank is sort of a retro two tone
metallic blue. I've always liked that style!
