do you have a part number ? or size for this clevis pin ?

no 29 in this diagram? http://www.cmsnl.com/yamaha-dt175f-1979_model8692/partslist/D-04.html#results

I have some stainless clevis pins here , they are the ones of rthe RD etc rear foortrests 6mm x 35mm and longer ones the same diamtere that fit the TDR 250 rear footrests 6mm x 40mm , or i have 8mm x35mm lengths do not include the heads , and can be supplied woith stainless washers and cotter pins if they are any god to you that is

okj afger a bit of research i se the part number is 91701-06042-00 which is the same as the TDR rear footrest ones , wemoto quote £2.62 each mild steel if you want originality without postage or washer or cotter pin + post if you want stainless i wil do the lot (2 clevis pins, 2 washers, 2 cotter pins ) for £6 posted , but please check that 6mm x 40 mm is correct

I had the same trouble trying to source one back in 2011 for my round tube swing arm.

I ended up using an M10 Stainless Steel bolt about 20cm long with a long plain shank, I cut off the threaded part and drilled a hole in the side for a split pin. (surprisingly easy to drill with a new bit)

It was a nice snug fit, no play, and is still there today. Works a treat.

The plain shaft has a diameter of 12mm same as the original.

Cost was a few pound on ebay i think I bought a pack of two.

Ah thought we were talking about the safety pins at the back of the sw'arm.

Item 29 in mervs post.

That item 17 has been a big bolt on mine for 20 years. Never knew what size.

None of those unfortunately. Am thinking of purchasing a swingarm pivot bolt and cutting it down to clevis pin length.

I don't have a clue of which part you are talking about.

I did learn something about the DT175 today though. It has a reverse switch :hah:LINKY. :shakeno:

PS: Before anyone tells me it is not a reverse switch, I already know that.

It is the pin that holds the bottom of the shock to top of swingarm.

As others have said a grade 8 bolt of 6 inch length will have a smooth surface for the first 3.5 inches so just cut the threaded part off and drill a hole for the cotter pin. I've got a bunch of old cylinder head bolts from cars that would work as all new cars use strech bolts they are only good for 1 use so any auto shop will have a bunch just stop and ask be more than strong enough for this application. Or check out a nut and bolt supplier they carry pins like that for hydraulic rams.

Went to Brian S Pope Ltd in stockport Chheshire (Engineers Supplies) Got a M12X160 Capscrew with hex on head with two washers and splitpin. He said this is the stongest bolt we do.

many thanks Guys for your help.

Now for a dating cert/mot/insurance on vin.

Oh and put it back together first as frame and swingarm has just come back from powdercoaters looking amazing!
