NEVER!!!

No I sold that engine and I have gone of two strokes again, they drink to much, and the funds for it came from the sale of my 200EXC.

Looking forward to playing with a mid sized old school fourstroke again.

Nope, just smashed it around


The rear needs a rebuild/replacing and the front needs new fork gaiters at the least. Probably needs new seals and new oil too.
So much to do, not enough time in life to get it done...

Edit:

I did fix the rear indicators today though!

OK, Ill throw my hat into the TT ring. This was my dads 86 TT350 that he bought new and had Dallas Baker do his magic and make street legal. Its in my possession now and I ride it in our local mountains every now and then. Great bike with plenty of life left, and a hoot to ride.

Hey guys first post here
Sorry if this was already answered or if i am asking this in wrong spot. I was about to jump on a 1987 Yamaha TT350 for $550. Pretty cheap considering he has recently put $700 into re-building it. This is my first bike. (I have never rode a motorcycle!!) My thought process was that it wouldn't be a hard bike to ride and learn on and if i dropped it i wouldn't shed the same type of tears i would if i dropped a Kawasaki Ninja ect. My main goal is to turn this thing into a dual sport, BUT i am having a hard time telling if that is legal in the states (CA specifically) i get mixed answers from everywhere!!! Sorry for the long post.

While this thread is active again I have a question...

My two TT's are an 86 (the 250) and a 91 (the 350), the forks are slightly different in a few external areas, but I was wondering if anyone knew if the 91 forks were better, or just different on the outside.

Thanks.

Not better. Both bad.

I stuck a pair of re-valved Triumph Scrambler Intiminators in mine and it made a hell of a difference.

Hey guys stupid question probably, but google searches lead me to no avail. When it comes to outfitting my 1987 TT350 with led lights and what not, im not quite sure the spare watts my bike throws out. Also i'm pretty sure the TT runs off of a 6v stator where 12v seems to be the norm when it comes to lighting. Is there a way to convert? Hopefully this makes sense because i am not bike savvy... Trying to be though.

Another problem is that I'm pretty sure your TT is AC only, as far as I know LEDs need DC to work.

I run my LED aux lights off the 6v DC circuit from the battery.

A 3W 12v LED still pokes out a few lumens on 6v...

My 250 was 6v stock, but the later year 350s were 12v. I went to the local wreckers and got a 12v stator from a TT350 and installed it.
I had also thought about getting another 6v coil and wiring it in series with the coil already on my bike. It wouldn't be able to put out as much power as the proper 12v coils I got, but it would be enough to run lights, especially if they were LEDs.



Yes, LEDs do work quite a bit better on DC. They'll probably flicker on AC.
It's not too difficult to get a 12v regulator/rectifier and wire it up so you have a DC circuit. I changed my headlight/taillight over to DC, as well as replacing the taillight with an LED unit (the stock rubber mount fell apart on me during a trip I did).

So if i was to replace only the 6v stator to one that was 12v, and then find a way to wire it so it comes out DC to the lights. It should work? My Dad was saying that he thought the regulator is what decided the voltage or something. BTW, thank you for the info! Already more help then TONS of google searching!!

EDIT: I re-read that post a couple time Anklyne. I think i pretty much fully understand what your saying. But does this set-up require a battery? Like this, stator > regulator > battery > lights. Or can you just cut the battery out of the equation?

Hey guys a quick question. I opened up my bike to examine the air filter today and whadda know? NO AIR FILTER! Literally nothing lol.(good thing the engine was just rebuilt...) Now i hit a dilemma, I have seen two different things, one looks like this:

and the other looks like this:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Yamaha-TT350...a9fdc5&vxp=mtr

Is there really a difference between them? One type better or worse? Sorry for being such an idiot when it comes to bikes.
