new TY175 kickstart lever assemblies

I've had a few people asking about sourcing these recently so in case anyone else is after one, I was just given a price from my local Yamaha shop that is a fair bit better than what I've paid in the past when buying from the UK. Part number is 525-15620-01

More TY wheels

I've been reconditioning a few TY wheels recently. The TY250D rear wheel from my :yamaha Majesty was in a bad way with some stripped sprocket bolt holes and a crack in the rim, which is a common failure with those particular rims. They are made by Takasago and appear to be a copy of the super-lightw...

Rear wheel rims

Greg Harding and I have raved on a bit over the years about the TY250A rear wheel rim and how it is one of the best tube-type rims for keeping Michelin X11 tubeless tyres in place. Here are a couple of photos showing the A model rear rim (size 2.15) against a later model TY twinshock rear rim (size ...

Re: Basket Cases

I'm certainly interested in the serial number of that latest one Greg otherwise as requested, no comment :!: Remember the :yamaha TY250 you inspected for me in a disused dairy up near Paul Hogan's mansion? We have not been able to sort out where it fits in the :yamaha TY250 production sequence. From...

a TY250A appeared from the ether

In case anyone else is interested in such things, this is a "late" model TY250A. The things that give it away are: The drain holes in the fork legs are at the back instead of at the sides. The cylinder casting has the fins going all the way across above the exhaust port. It has a fairly la...

Re: Basket Cases

Most amazing for me was to see that the original sliding killswitch knob on the twistgrip hadn't been smashed off

Re: Basket Cases

It still has the original genuine Yamaha-Stanley tail light on the original rear guard. I figure the owner was either very good at wheelies or didn't do wheelies

Re: Basket Cases

The next is that it still has the original shocks, which are very easy to bend. Yes they are fairly shagged but they are still there.
