Nice Project

I am watching carefully and learning,

As I get something really photo-worthy done on IT465s, I will post photos. Not too exciting to watch jellied gas be removed from carbs and petcocks or the same hardened goo washed out of gas tanks and brake parts arriving from eBay.

Thanks for starting this thread.

PS I have 4 IT465s in the garage: 2 good bikes running or near to running and 2 parts bikes as donors for spare parts (they take up room but it was cheaper to buy an entire donor bike for a gas tank and straight wheels than it was to buy the parts).

On your 490: the bike in the first photo has the IT front headlight and taillight, yours does not. Are you going to add the lights or just keep it dark?

Ooooups .... sorry

I think it was 1979 or 1980, flew to Houston, bought a IT 425, down to the Mexican Border at Nuevo Llaredo, then across the Sierra Madre to Tampico.

We had our Bikes (my friend had XT 500) , a sleeping bag, a back bag, a water bottle and a knife on the belt. Ond of course a compass and a map (1:1'500'000).

We suvived.
Don't know why.
We had unbelivable experiences. I could write a book about that 4 weeks.

New to this Forum

Hey everybody,

I decided to join because I am embarking on another IT465 project.

The original is chronicled here:

http://www.mototherapy.net/it465


Well I started racing enduros over the past 2 years, and this bike has been neglected, so I decided that I am going to turn it into a supermoto/street tracker project.

The project should go quick....a frame powder coat, new top end, collect some parts, and then lower the suspension. Then a little paperwork magic....

Hopefully I will have the street version of an IT465 in just a few weeks!!

Any ideas or suggestions would be great!!

I have a new Clarke tank in White, and I am planning on doing the frame in white, and to try and get a nifty seat/tailpiece ala cafe racer. Some rearsets, street tires, and maybe freshen up some of the aluminum bits...a VERY BUDGET, VERY SCARY street bike....hopefully I won't bend the connecting rod twisting the throttle too far!

Gidday Sorry for reviving an old thread but Here's my two 465's, the stock one has been slowly rebuilt from a wreck over the last 5 years, the other one is freshly rebuilt from the remains of the donor bikes bought to repair the first one, the forks are from an 89 Husky 510 with an XR600 rim adapted to fit. the engine is a YZ465G barrel with a YZ490J crank with the IT465H clutch and gearbox.. a real bitsa but it's good to see it together again!!

here's the links to both the builds:

I'd love to have one as I would plate it and ride it to and from work at least a couple days a week.

Puke 1980 IT425 Yamaha

Well, just purchased a 1980 Yamaha IT425 and it might need some "work".

Everything is there, hopefully original bore, and shifting, brakes, throttle cable everything works.

Of course, it does not run, but, has spark.

Will work the basics, change oil, WD-40 cables, clean carb, oil chain, etc... and see what happens!

Here she is, in all of her glory!
