Try the Yamaha part catalog website: http://www.yamaha-motor.com/sport/parts/home.aspx

Could be the same as the IT490: 2E9-82110-11 BATTERY ASSY (6N2-2A-7)

My 82 465J. I have the original headlight but prefer the square one. It produces more light.

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.

Question IT490 lighting coil

???

The current lighting coil has a resistance reading far from the specfied value, I ordered a new one from Yamaha. After receiving the new coil I noticed it had an extra wire, the old one has only one winding. The new coil has two windings.

Do I simply ignore the second winding ?

Can anyone provide some help ?

Thanks

So, how do the ITs compare to similar year YZs?


More specifically, I have a considerable amount of seat time on an '83 YZ490, but I've never seen an IT in person. How would a similar-year IT490 compare?

I assume power is mellowed in favor of low-end lugability, but how much?

I would also assume a milder state of tune would make for somewhat easier starting, compared to the YZs and relative to open-classers in general?

Is the IT suspension downgraded any from the YZ spec, or simply tuned differently?

I didn't realize ITs were equipped with a battery. Do they still have permament magnets in their flywheels, or do they require the battery to power field coils (like DTs)?

No battery is required to start the bike.

IT490 has 5 gears compared to the 4 in a YZ490.

The IT's were much easier to live with than the YZ's. Yes they had heavier flywheels for more inertia and chug in the woods. Better spaced gearing for woods riding, and tuned for more low-end. That being said, they are NOT wimpy by any stretch of the imagination. The big bore IT's are absolute animals, they'll climb a tree if there's enough traction. They don't turn real well (long wheel base, heavy) but very ridable bikes...love 'em!
