    I am selling a Vintage Yamaha Motorcycle Four Stroke Workshop Tool Board. This board would have been displayed in a Yamaha dealership workshop. With the outline of the various specialist tools imprinted on it, it served as a easy finder for tools and a reference point. This is a used item and as you would expect from use in a busy workshop has various scuffs, bangs and marks on it, but overall is sound and clear to read. The board is on half inch ply and measures 4ft (w) x 2’6” (h). With it I have 22mm x 26mm flat ring spanner, 19mm x 22mm flat ring spanner, 13mm x 17mm normal spanner, 10mm x 12mm normal spanner, and a pair of pliers. Some are marked Yamaha but ! am sure they all came out of my RD400 OEM tool bag back in the day. Looking for £80 for the lot. Collection only due to size.

    I think that is either dead or something someone had that filled the hole. This is what it should look like, https://www.cmsnl.com/yamaha-yds5-1967-usa_model8304/neutral-switch-asy_1568254000/#.Xwrj_OWSnIU

    Its a weird shifter on these things as i recall, there is no shifter drum with the usual detents. The gear leaver turns a ring and that affects the shift forks on a long pair of cross shafts. Made sense to someone? Looking under the bike my bet would be something on the round raised area in what looks like a sump but isn't. That's the shift ring and the neutral detent will like as not be around there, wire looks about the right size. I'm scratching my head back to a yds i messed with with my dad when i was 15. Hope it helps.

    I have a wire hanging from the engine (YDS5) which I believe is for the neutral light (Light blue) and have no idea where it should go as I have looked over and under the engine, here are some photos. Also can anybody help me out on a tachometer cable as one did not come with the bike like any measurements: Outer cable tip to tip length and outer cable fittings required – usually female threaded spinning fittings on the outers. Inner cable tip to tip length, and the square section size at both ends of the inner (May be same both ends) Thanks
  14. Hello, at 75 I've just bought my first ever cruiser - a Dragstar 650 Classic. AND I LOVE IT! But there is a feature I haven't seen, as yet, anywhere else. It appears to have two fuel filler caps, one on each side of the speedo. The actual filler is on the right. On the left, when I unscrew the cap, there is an identically sized hole but with a plastic reducer - making the hole seems too small to accept a fuel filler nozzle. What on earth is it doing there? It balances the look of the tank, I must say. But that can't be the reason. Can it? cheers

    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
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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?
  19. Are there any bleed points on the system at all?
  20. 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
  21. 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.
  22. I will do that and go for an experimental run soon. Thank you!
  23. 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.

    Bet he used one with his boat?
  25. 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.
  26. Welcomen" member jimmy has a great affection for the XS 250. maybe he can offer some Advise
