Most likely then Rob, I just took it off the calendar which probably has last years date still in.

Event is run by Oakleigh Motorcycle Club, they will be the ones to release full details.

Well, am I a happy little vegemite. Took her for a short spin today. Has plenty of compression, starts easily, idles and rips once warmed up. The lights and horn work, only the indicators require attention. The rear shock is excellent with good dampening, however the forks will require heavier oil. I will give IT a good going over- oil change, new filter, grease, try and get a seat cover and give her a general tidy up. Then she will be used for what it was built for-ridden.
Chris you can fit 3 cans in the muffler before it reduces (with the baffle out).
Todays pics (hope to have some with it in action soon)-










Also came with the original IT250G/IT425G Yamaha owners service manual and a Clymer IT125-490 1976-1986 Service Repair Maintenance manual.
IT's going to be a good year.

Has anyone fitted DC side covers to their IT425? If so, how good is the fit and colour? I have read horror stories with other models.

I plan to take the 425 to the 3 bridges vinduro. Whilst the seat is getting reupholstered I decided to check the swingarm bearings as there was a little play. The bolt and pin came out easily, however so did rusty bearing rollers. My one impediment is the 2 x bearing cylinders #93317-22214-00 which are pressed in the swing arm are rooted. I have all the other components and my Yamaha dealer cannot get this part for 2-3 weeks - I need them by next weekend (mid next week at the latest). Can anyone help me out?

They should come out with a bit of effort. They weren't an interference fit like the lower steering race. Mine came out of my 465 and they were outrageously rusted. Could still read the numbers though. If you can get them out, read the numbers and go to a bearing supplier...take the thing with ya'. That was my original plan but then I came across All Balls.....but I had heaps of time.



Cheers,
Chris.

Thanks Chris, no problem getting them out. Just need a replacement. Unfortunately there's not much left and the numbers are illegible (probably original bearings). I'm taking the 250, just hanging out to give the 425 a run. Worse case scenario -next vinduro.

Looks to me like a TA2210Z. Ring a bearing supplier. I use Rolling Bearings West who are just up the road from me in Laverton and they shudder every time I open the door, but this is a standard bearing I think.

Further Progress-
I have sandblasted and undercoated the swingarm (topcoat Monday). Received 2 x TA2210Z bearings and should have the thrust bearings by Wednesday. The seat has been recovered by Topline Seaford and looks great. New Unifilter fitted. I'm on schedule for 3 bridges (entry mailed).

I got a real sh_tter...been left in the weather for 12 years.






Did the old paint strip and sand back with 180 grit and then primed and painted it.




It's all covered in this thread...along with just about anything else you can think of.

Hi Jock, I don't have a sanblaster at home, however I have access to this little unit-


If any forum members need any pipes or small parts done I can slip them through for $0.00 (I'm near Frankston, VIC) Anything large like frames will require a small donation to the bosses beer account.

The old girl has seen more than a few vinduro's and one long race. Compression has taken a dive, so new rings are due. The bottom end has no play and the piston is within spec. It's on .5 os and I bought some rings from the US for AUS$53 including freight-happy about that. I'll source a new base gasket,head gasket, hone the barrel and should get another couple of years of good service.

I need to investigate a sleeve or the possibility of nikasil as .75 and larger pistons are like rocking horse sh_t. I have NOS standard and .25 piston kits. Fortunately there still about.

If you want it, check the details, bid on it and get shipped to me or I'll pick it up from the seller for you.

This listing has piston and rings :

Response from Electrosil-

Hi Tony,

Unfortunately we are unable to coat onto a cast iron liner when it is installed in an alloy cylinder shell.

 

Cheers,

Electrosil Team

Fortunately there are other options.

I've been told by Lozza on OzVMX that either Millenium in the US or NZ Cylinders in inzid can do a revised process to get nicasil to stick to a cast iron liner.

Apparently, they can plate up to .6mm thickness as well which if applied across the diameter would be nearly 5 oversizes depending on starting point.

Dunno about heat and the effects of it though.
