IT175G USA Enduro Racing team's Specs
« on: April 01, 2016, 07:31:23 PM »
In about 1980 I got hold of an article which described in fine detail the changes that the USA Enduro racing team made to their IT's to make them more competitive. I made the exact same changes to my IT 175G. porting and polishing, chop and lengthened expansion chambers, raised compression, rejeted and bored out carb, changes to air box, yeis bottle, cog teeth changed etc etc.

Bike was faster than a bullet. I think it was in a Dirtbike Mag?

Has anyone seen this article as I am trying to track it down?

Hi mikel, welcome to the forum.

I may well have some info tucked away somewhere.

In the mean time why not introduce yourself here: http://www.yamahait.com.au/forum/index.php/topic,1.0.html

Cheers,

Dave R.
