Yeah they were belt driven, this is a conversion done by some RD350 racers in Germany, and they run sprockets. Everything should fit with no mods to the original Yamaha parts.

So far I am 90 euro out on the wheels, which is quite cheap!

There has been alot going on this last month. On the 13th.of November, my mother died after fighting abdominal cancer for two years. This has also meant that I've chosen to move job (I'm in the military, so I changed base).

So time and money has gone to finding a new apartment and saving up for a deposit, as I got next to nothing from the old place. I'm still trying to keep momentum and focusing on the good stuff, but it's not much that I'm getting done.

What I did do though, is paint my cylinders and heads. To my surprise, this heat resistant paint is VERY durable, very easy to use and the matt finish is awesome. I will try to use this on frames in the future, that is for sure. The picture is not the best and I haven't polished the fins yet, only started removing the paint. It's not the best picture, but hey.

I'm on christmas break, so I am in no hurry to get stuff done, which I thinks helps me paint this. Just a little layer per day, then off to do other errands.

Hi Lasse..

I've been watching this thread since you started it and I'm loving what you are doing with the RD, I have a little idea of giving new life to one, but the LC model instead of the aircooled... But we'll see..

I do feel so sorry about your mother, and I understand that you can have problems with moving to a new place.. The important thing is that you are still on the project, maybe not as fast as in the first time, but you are progressing.

I'll wait for you to show some progress!
Just in case.. Merry christmas!

So sorry for your loss. Keep at though, it's a good thing to focus your energy on and it's coming along great.

BTW, have you decided on whether you're keeping the oil injector or going with pre-mix? Not sure what is considered the safest/best option.

Sorry about the loss of your Mom.

Now about the bike I sure hope you just stick with the oil injection system, which is proven and worked fro 40 years on Yamahas and other bikes.

If it aint broke don't fix it this will save your ass

Yeah so far I am keeping the autolube system. I will not be going as radical with the bike as I really wanted, not for now atleast. For the time being, I just want it to be roadready and see if I will actually enjoy the bike. I think I will though :)

Here in Argentina at least, almost all the people that rebuilds or has rebuilt any 2stroke recomends not to keep the autolube and mix the gas with the oil in the tank... An it is more recommended for theese kind of bikes, that are one of the greatest that we have had here...

For a bike you're going to ride on the street, the oil pump is your friend. They're probably the most reliable component on the bike. The only problem I've had with mine was when one on the nipples fell out of the side of the carb. Thankfully, I caught it soon after it happened, and no harm was done. They're now epoxied in!

Hey Lasse, just noticed from one of your earlier posts: "Crank is dead, so is the clutch bushing/spacer". Just curious as to how you determined your clutch spacer was no good?

I could feel a level difference and it was slightly discoloured, so to me it was dead :)

Only minor!

I should take delivery of needlebearings for the piston pins today, which means I can finally put the motor together.

I painted the cylinders and heads, but upon polising the fins of the heads I also scored the paint between the fins, so I have to re-do that :)

Well, could you take some photos of the final motor build?

About the heads, think it is an opportunity of painting them even better they were..

Greetings!
And happy new year a little delayed, hehe!
