Rough Crafts Unveils Custom Yamaha XJR1300 “Guerilla Four”

In honor of the 20th anniversary of the XJR1300, Yamaha commissioned Taiwanese builder Winston Yeh of Rough Crafts to deliver a new take on the iconic machine, creating an even meaner, stripped down bruiser finished in a sleek black paint job. Winston and his team created the “Guerilla Four” concept without any cutting or welding to the frame, featuring a modified front end equipped with Yamaha VMAX shocks shortened by 100mm, and the caliper mounts modified for 11.5-inch discs. Rough Crafts’ custom triple trees were installed to keep everything together at the top, and all the instrumentation was removed for an exceedingly clean look. Massive Coker Beck Style tires are wrapped around Roland Sands BOSS Black Ops rims, and the standard exhaust runs out to a Rough Crafts custom tail pipe. More Rough Crafts parts — including foot pegs, handlebars, risers, grips, headlight grill and a custom fuel cap — round out the details.
