I was checking that TT500 tank for leaks with air pressure,I accidently gave it too much of an air squirt and the whole tank spread and cracked in a second,useless now.
I would be careful with it,they want a couple hundred for an average one on ebay. If it was steel a hot-stick gun would be the ticket for pulling dents.

Well, I bought a tank on eBay - http://www.ebay.com/itm/1976-Yamaha-...ice-AHRMA-/200 - don't want to destroy my old tank, but I will have a back up. Maybe I should just sand my old tank, paint it and run it as is. I diid find a tank from Clarke - http://clarkemfg.com/yz250125-7476-s...ity-p-244.html - might work???

That link above to eBay doesn't work, will try to fix it.
edit: will try this link - http://www.ebay.com/itm/1976-Yamaha-...ice-AHRMA-/200
edit again: can't find a way to show the tank, need my young boys here to show me how to do this stuff.

success

Went to O'Reilly's:


Puller:


Forks were too long (or the bolt was too short, take your pick):


No threads on the flywheel, all rusted out. Yes, that is JB Weld, tried to pull the flywheel but no luck with the old puller:


Wedged forks into slots so they wouldn't slip out, used the old puller center piece to center the steering wheel puller bolt, heated the flywheel to SMOKING HOT:



A lot of torque on the puller, a few sharp blows with a hammer, and the flywheel popped loose:

yucky

The flywheel was rusted onto the crank shaft, nasty:


I hate dirt and rust:


Sad:


When I first pulled of the external magneto cover, the interior was full of water and dirt:


Knew I had to get that flywheel off and clean things up:


Better now:


Going to put this old flywheel back on, but the threads on the other side are shot. I know now that I can pull if off again whenever necessary, will apply a good dose of anti-sieze when I put it back on:


Ordered an new woodruf key from my local Yamaha shop, should arrive next week. Will lap that shaft and the flywheel internal bore so they are shiny and smooth, and apply a coat of anti-sieze:

9.9 You lost a tenth of a point for lack of description on the cleaning process! Nice job.

Show the wheels my man. Mine are a little tarnished, and I don't think I will polish them out.

Close up, rear, and the front was in the same dirty state:


Got new All Balls wheel bearings/seals and new tires. More to come...

Several projects going on, been working on my son's XR200. Slowly working on the YZ, making some pictures. Then, it's hard to find time to get a few posted here. I am going to quit eating, sleeping, etc., big waste of time, could be working on motorsickles.

more wheels / tires

Spoke nipples were RUSTY. Cleaned them up as best I could. Notice crack in wheel, had a few cracks in both wheels. I so much want to send them to Woody's for new rims and spokes! But, it is cost prohibitive for now, just going to run them as is. May be later on I will pick up a set of wheels off eBay and get them rebuilt:


New front tire:


New rear rubber:


High tech motorcycle lift:


Progress!


Ready to MOTO:


Rolling chasis. Ready for a Briggs & Statton lawn mower engine:
