    XS250 exhaust

    micron used to do a 2 in 1 , if you keep scouring the ebay ads one will turn up the 400 will be the same. make sure you get the correct year as they changed in 1983 to dohc
  4. I’ve decided to go for the refund and find a new bike. I’ll keep an eye on that breaker for future smaller jobs.
  5. XJ650 H, 1980, Really should add some info to your profile and say hi in the new members area. First post questions often get snubbed.
  6. Ok, how much fluid did you start with in the header tank. Water is supposed to vent out into the header tank and then when its cooling down pull it back. Does the level in the header tank change?
  7. Are there any bleed points on the system at all?
  8. Hello, I am in the process of restoring a 1976 Yamaha V50, the cylinder barrel is badly scored, has anyone fitted a barrel and piston from a later 1980 V80? No V50 cylinders are available hear in Australia. Thanks in advance, Paul
  9. Still the same problem...I let the engine run with the radiator cap off and topped off the radiator. I took it for a run and my radiator is now only 3/4 full....the reservoir is full. When I got back, it spit out a puddle of coolant on the garage floor. My radiator cap keeps it pressurized nicely, but it still likes to spit out of the overflow. I am sure that my cooling system is hooked up correctly. My temp never went above 70 C.
  10. Last week
  11. I will do that and go for an experimental run soon. Thank you!
  12. Did you let the engine vent first or just fill the rad and be done with it. You need to run the engine without the rad cap to bleed out the air trapped in the system typically behind the thermostat.

    XS250 exhaust

    Bet he used one with his boat?
  14. I took the bike out for a spin yesterday and checked the coolant levels once I was back and it was cooled off. I filled the radiator before and after removing the cap, the radiator was only half full. What surprised me is that the bike didn't overheat (70 C all the way). My reservoir under the seat was full and I couldn't find any wet spots one bike, unless they evaporated. Even then, I did not notice anything after turning the bike off.
  15. Welcomen" member jimmy has a great affection for the XS 250. maybe he can offer some Advise
  16. I recently purchased a Yamaha XJ650 but unsure of model. I have a chassis number 4KO-003768. Could anyone help as I want to restore it. Thanks.
  17. you might be right as regards the engine, its not too far from me either
  18. Thanks everyone for the advice, and that breaker is not far from me Drewpy. I’ll let you know what I decide, but I’m edging towards getting my money back. As Cynic said it probably started out as a dud, and I don’t want a world of pain trying to resurrect it. thanks Phil

    XS250 exhaust

    I’ve just acquired an XS250 and both exhaust’s are rotten but I’m having trouble finding replacements has anyone got any ideas where I can get a pair of exhaust’s or if exhaust’s from another bike that would fit well thanks
  21. Hi All I have a 1969 Yamaha YDS6 and I`m having trouble finding the carbs so my question is could I use RD250 carbs ?
  22. Update: I replaced the oil, coolant, and put good fuel in it. After a little coaxing, I got it idle nicely and let it run for 3 hours ( I made sure the temp was always in the normal range). I think it managed to clean out the minor gunk by itself because like I said, this bike was running before it was abandoned. It's been 2 days since my last post and she starts very nicely now...hot or cold....usually no more than 3 cranks if even that. Next thing to see is if I can tighten the clutch...it doesn't disengage all the way.
  23. sometimes breakers may do it. There's one on https://worsley.cylex-uk.co.uk/company/the-bikers-warehouse-13845097.html I got a frame off them years ago and they have mechanics onsite, could do an engine swap?
  24. Hardly butting in, thread ended in 2009. Use the wanted area.
  25. sorry for butting in just joined trying to navigate my way round .im looking for a carb for a rs100 yamaha 1977
