TY250A Fuel Tank

In the very last stage of restoring a TY250A and found that the fuel tank on the bike is aluminium. Would I be correct in assuming this tank is more likely to have come from a 1977 TY250D part number 493-24110-00-06 and if so are these tanks commonly available? Also on the original tank is the Yamah...

Re: Yamaha TY250A Enduro Specification

Hi Alastair, Thanks for your reply. I have been told the steering stops (part # 493-23432-10) only fit the `75 model. I have never seen them fitted. Again I have been told, but have never seen, that Yamaha published a four page information document on this option complete with instructions and photo...

Re: Yamaha TY250A Speedometer Rebuild

Hi Mark, Your attachment with the 0-120km face is exactly like the one I am restoring from the front. The correct bracket for this speedometer is a round circle band with a return leg that attaches to the front fork. The band fits over the rear body of the speedometer and is sized to be an interfere...

Re: Yamaha TY250A Speedometer Rebuild

Hi David, The minimum specification would be the following:- Works/ good face and clear glass/ no rust to inner face rim/ no excessive rust to the main body but the "normal" rust found under the rubber gasket no problem. No dings to body. I have both a good mounting bracket and the rear bo...
