Deus Transforms Yamaha’s FZ-07 Into A Race-Ready, Street-Legal Flat Tracker

Jan 13, 2020

Within the last decade, flat-track racing has experienced a major revival, with the sport seeing a marked influx in popularity, prompting an increasing number of manufacturers to turn their attention to American dirt-oval racing. Among these manufacturers is Yamaha, which has a rich history of going fast and left with “King” Kenny Roberts famously achieving victory on an XS650-based OW72 factory racer. To celebrate the Tuning Fork Company’s flat track efforts, custom bike outfit, Deus Ex Machina’s Michael “Woolie” Woolaway has just built a stunning one-off street tracker based around Yamaha’s twin-cylinder tracker platform.

Instead of opting to use Yamaha’s latest dirt-oval weapon, the MT-07 DT, Woolie started with a 2017 FZ-07 — now known as the MT-07 —that was treated to a full factory race kit courtesy of SoCal’s Graves Motorsports that included oversized pistons, factory spec ported cylinder head, and upgraded race valves, just to name a few. Once done massaging the parallel-twin, it was dropped into a bespoke frame made by Jeff Cole of C&J Frames fame — an industry legend, AMA Hall of Famer, and the force behind the Honda RS750 frame. Other noteworthy upgrades include a bespoke tank, custom tracker-style tail section, and a front number-plate with an integrated headlight, 19” RSD tracker wheels, RaceTech-tuned suspension, Brembo M50 Monoblocs, Yoshimura crash protection, Saddlemen seat, and a sport-bike-style carbon fiber exhaust. Dubbed “The Framer,” this build is currently for sale through Deus Los Angeles.
