The next project.
« on: July 31, 2018, 08:18:54 AM »
Hi to all.
 As Dave has said the next project is always more interesting, so here I go again. the plan is to go through
it and have it ready for a blast next spring. Here are some pictures of what I have to start with.

A quick hose off, check the oil and add fuel would be my guess.

Looks good 'as is'.

Some duct tape over the split seat cover, new cables, chain and sprockets, perhaps crank seals, fuel and oil..... Ride !

Cheers,

Dave.

So you know what it's like you have to start picking and it's not long till there's nothing left so what's to do.
Pretty much every bolt was buggered, worn from being vibrated to death an many others cross  threaded. That has to be the crustyest air filter I have ever seen 🤣

Yep! to be expected,
It's a testament to Yamaha that they still run after years of abuse.
My IT200 suffered from the same PO abuse, My bike had a mixture of metric and AF bolts holding it together, and my clutch springs were held in by penny washers and self tapping screws!!!.

Cheers,
Steve.

This is what's left of the engine mounts. Half are broken the other are hand made I haven't dared look at the casings yet. I know the mounting holes won't be round.
I also have another nagging doubt about the hole I have found in the left hand seat stay, it looks like a rust pin hole from the inside

I would grind until clean and weld. I would then (before painting) apply Boeshield or similar inside all the tubing as a matter of course.
