"Stiletto 400" / Fuel


















- "  A project based on a 2016 Yamaha SR 400
This project was commissioned by our friend Marco, founder of the Club Vintage Rally in Italy and rider of the Scram Africa in several editions.
It was precisely due to his registration in the Scram Africa 2017 that he took charge of this project.
The idea was basically to make an interesting bike with a low budget improving the aesthetics and at the same time to improve aspects of the bike for an off road riding.
In order to improve its riding on tracks, some improvements were made, such as new off-road footpegs and a cross-type handlebar higher than the original. Also the exhaust manifold was modified in order the silencer get a greater angle than the original one.
The rear shocks were changed by YSS and the springs fork were changed by a progressive ones, these modifications greatly improved the handling of the motorcycle.
At the rear part of the bike was adapted an Ossa Stiletto seat cowl. That Ossa bike was also known as "Moto-Cross" or "Scrambler" and introduced in the English market as "Avenger".
That seat cowl plus a single scrambler style seat gives a new line and a totally different image to the original model.
A small headlight also from an Ossa in the front has just given this look of the enduro bikes of the 70’s.
Regarding the tires were mounted Continetal TKC 80 that behaved perfectly in Morocco.
The color of the bike was Marco's request, he wanted a joyful, fun and reliable bike .. and as you can see in the images during the Scram Africa the Fuel Stiletto 400 is a joyful, fun and reliable bike! " -
