Update on Yamaha CT3 175cc 2-stroke

The CT3 175cc is still going strong after 400 miles on the road and trail. Its nice to get plenty of seat time on it after working all winter in the basement, just imagining what it would be like to ride. It looks so formal on a trail ride with all the gold and chrome compared to all of the plastic-clad dirt bikes. I like jumping between the CT3 and my YZ250F throughout the day on the trails. I push them both pretty hard now that the honeymoon period is over.

Here are a few new pictures for those interested in these old bikes.

how are the Shinko 241s holding up??

Bumping this thread, because I'm thinking about putting those tires on my CL350. How has the durability been? Are they good on the pavement?

thanks,
john

I'm pleasantly surprised with the Shinkos so far. I have about 600 miles on them (mostly road) and they are showing no appreciable wear. Not hard-core knobbies but work just fine for this bike in dirt and even a little mud also.

Trials and Hooligan Riding on the 1973 Yamaha CT3 175 (& YZ250F)

Hidden talent of the 1973 Yamaha CT3 175, trials riding. Peppy engine and low seat height = lots of fun :

Cool little vid man, I was digging listening to that engine. Watching it made me think that i need to practice stuff like this to be a better rider.

some time has passed, how do you like the shinkos now? I found this thread by doing a search for them (don't want to shell out the money for TKC 80s)

Thanks for the reply Jomega! I have no issues with teh Shinkos whatsoever. I ride on the road and in the dirt. After 1200 mostly road miles, the rear tread is showing some wear (flattening on the center of the tire) but not enough to replace yet.

If only we'd known the plastic metalflake helmets would be back in style, we'd have kept them !

controls

Hi Scotty,

Nice job on the 175! It (a blue one) was my 2nd bike, after killing a Honda 100. I never killed the Yamaha BTW.

I currently have a yellow 1971 AT1 125. It's in great shape other than the hi-beam/lo-beam control button has been broken off. Do you know of a source for, or someone that restores/refurbishes those controls for the early Yamahas ?

If so, could you PM me please. I don't check here too often.

Thanks and ride safe!

Rob
