    thank you to everyone, i pushed even harder with success, i do lots of searches before i bother anyone on here. i do try sort things myself. thank you all, and dont suppose anyone knows the amount of oil in each fork? after searching i see so so many different answers, so i got to thinking it is just under 305ml.? in each fork.. anyone confirm this? or correct amount. thank you in advance oh am i missing something, why does no one have a thank you button?? or i just cant see them.

    dt125lc old project frame /engine numbers

    hi, yes that's the dt125lc 1982 i thought i had.. not sure what kind of story how a ty250 1975 model can be mixed up. but after doing some digging around. all the ty250 numbers i was seeing were the same or not very close to my frame and engine number,,, so still very confused...

    dt125lc old project frame /engine numbers

    and wow... just got another email from motorcyclesspareparts giving parts catalog below..??? Dear Mr(s) Barber, Than you for your reply. Please find the spare parts catalog attached. Kind regards, Mit Freundlichen Grußen, Met vriendelijke groeten, Frank Hazekamp thing is , i dont know a lot about bikes, but just to look at a ty250 and a dt125 there is massive difference in the looks. my engine has 10v on it. both numbers on frame and engine are proper, clean , nothing has been etched off.. im also re doing the swing bar on the bike.. how can this all be??

    dt125lc old project frame /engine numbers

    well now i'm even more confused... just got an email from yamaha customer service. now i know it is not a 1975 ty250 just by looking at the bike when i 1st got it. im actually re doing the petrol tank at the moment..here is there email... any thoughts anyone.?? really thought i would get some real answers..if they dont know then no one wll surely.. Good Morning, Thank you for your enquiry, unfortunately due to the age the information is very limited. From the number you have supplied 493-000829 I can advise the machine is a 1975 model year TY250. The machine would have originally been a trials machine (off road) and is not likely to be road registered. I can advise older machines do not have a 17 digit VIN as they only came out in the 2000’s.

    dt125lc old project frame /engine numbers

    hello, thanks for your reply, i've triple checked the frame numbers, and there does seem to be no more prefix before the 493 or after. i thought they brought the 17 vin in 1981. i read somewhere. i've been reading and reading looking searching. seeing so much information, a lot of people saying different things. i've ended up knowing less information than i started with. lol . i thought very strange not to have 1 letter in the first 3 digits...
  13. hello all, i have been reading and reading tons on this subject, only seeing 9 digit numbers with a letter in them. now on my what i think is a mk1 1982 dt125lc has this 9 digit on frame 493-000829 and on engine has 000 829 now when i have been searching, and others having same only 9 digits , they have at least one letter in this. anyone able to give me any info on this bike? did it ever start as a road legal bike, as this was bought as a off road bike 7 years ago. only just got back to this project, so any help getting the full information on this would be great. i know nothing much about bikes, did they sell off road bikes in 82? stupid question i expect. hope you all can help... justin
