  1. Sort out the part nos from here, then get searching on the web, they may be common to other bikes. Try ringing around breakers yards too. For the wheels and spokes, there are couple of well known suppliers that advertise in Classic Motorcycle Mechanics monthly magazine. Stafford Bike Show is on in July too, you could have a rummage around there, you never know, you may turn something up
  2. Dash looks the same as my FZ6 S2. On mine, code ER-1 is "no communication or unreadable communication between ECU and instrument cluster - engine will not run". Causes are " faulty wiring or wiring connector - damaged instrument cluster - damaged ECU". As your instrument cluster appears to have several cracks in the screen, I suggest you start at the cluster.
  3. http://yamaha-virago.blogspot.com/2018/10/induction-coils.html Cross reference the part numbers and models, the info is there Dont mention it
  4. I take the fairings (lowers) off my fazer, slip rubber gloves over the exhaust outlets, rinse with cold water, wash with whatever ive got at the time, chammy off what I can get at, then blow dry with the compressor. Leave it a day or two, then cover over the brakes/wheels, seat off, using a low pressure spray gun (5psi), spray all over with ACF50. Leave a day, then wipe off any excess which has formed. I pivot the tank and get underneath that too, all around and under the swinger, get it right into the engine, and particularly the manifold area, as the clamp bolts are notorious for corroding.
  5. Personal choice really I suppose, like how much high viz do you want to wear. If theres a twat on his phone behind you, it may make no difference as hes not looking anyway. Not for me.
  6. Hope you find it. I had one for 5 years, before I traded it in. Absolutely belting bikes for 80s air cooled. Its been for sale twice since for over twice the money I traded it for, and I came so close to buying it back, but decided against as subsequent owners looked to have neglected it somewhat, and I couldnt afford to buy it and throw money at it again
  7. Have a look here https://www.cmsnl.com/yamaha-xj750r-seca-1982-c-usa_model8879/partslist/?filter_assembly_group=electrical#.YBA_juj7SUn
  8. Battery. Needs to be fully charged. Check the terminals are secure, clean and dry.
  9. Try here https://www.manualslib.com/manual/612293/Yamaha-Ybr250.html. Good luck with the trip
  10. Thats a neat little piece of work. I'll bear that in mind if my hands get any worse. Bit of arthritis, but plagued with trigger finger at the moment, and cant get either an NHS or private session to correct it in the foreseeable future. But I'm countin my blessings as so far we're covid free
  11. Just checking in, still Covid free Have as good a Christmas as you can all. Stay safe
  12. Look under the tank and double check to make sure you haven't trapped or pinched a fuel pipe
  13. 1970, and fed up with push biking 4 miles to work and back every day, no car licence yet, so took a C50 of my workmate who no longer wanted it. It worked fine, just the kickstart was broken. Id put it into second, walk with it a couple of paces and it would fire up. Ha dit nearly two years, never failed, all I did was fuel it up. How I wish I still had it. Passed my driving test in 72, cars right up to 2009 Nottingham City Council got me back onto two wheels when they brought in the tram/car park tax. Principles meant that I would not pay it, so bought a Dragstar 125 and passed my t
  14. Shouldnt be lumpy, my old one was nice and smooth. If youve no service history, then Id give it a full service first off, and check the carb rubber for cracks/leaks. Get it running right first
