This seems like a great price for a complete seat. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Yamaha-RD250...00bfc3&vxp=mtr

that's what I'm talking about, that seat have a rip on one side, is in OK condition at best, and at $100 (including shipping) is consider a great price.. what am I missing?

Oil is for teh trans and the clutch so no friction modifiers allowed.

it's a 40 year old bike ,a seat with good foam is hard to find. It dosen't matter to me, but a good seat is going to cost you , go price what a seat shop will charge you to refoam and cover your pan. I'm betting around $200.00 or more.You asked for help finding a seat, so either find another or whatever.

I purchased a new cover for my old Suzuki and was pleased with how it turned out. I noticed they also had Yamaha seat covers. http://www.reproductiondecals.com/de...tent.html~main . Lots of other misc. stuff. One option would be to build up the foam using carpet underlay doing it in layers and contouring the shape till it fits your butt and/or seat cover. ken

thanks,
need some more help.
Today got the chain I ordered.
Was suppose to be for the RD350 (530 o-ring) but there is way to much play with the chain and the sprocket.
The sprocket of my R5 measure 5.5mm thick.
Can someone please tell me what chain this bike takes?
520, 525 or what!
and is it worth an O, X ring or roller will do for this bike?

They did not have o-ring chains back in 73, the chain should be a DID530ds-91Links. if the chain is sloppy on the sprokets, they are probably wore out and need to be replaced.

Just checked speed and sports, and the 1970 & 1971 R5, R5B did have a 525 chain. Probably went to a bigger chain for the extra HP of the RD. But you seem to have a cross of the two models, so you need parts for an R5 not an RD except for the cylinders and pistons and reeds.

RD's are fun bike's,I have 2, a 74 RD350 and a 75 RD350.The main thing to do is get a repair manual such as a Clymer or a Yamaha.I have both and still use them frequently.I would join one of the online RD site's as these guy's can help alot. The 74, I have,I've put more than 10,000 mile's on and has been 10 yr's since the overhaul.I used Wiseco piston's and have had no problem's with them as long as you warm,the bike up first.I would go real easy about putting this bike on the road until you know that everything is (RIGHT).They will seize a piston quickly if everything is not right and that can get expensive very fast.If you get it running good,they are a blast to ride and an instance smile maker I use KLOTZ synthtic 2 stroke oil and have since the 70's,Kart racer's know about this good stuff and Belray gear oil.They really need updated tire's like a set of Bridgestone Battleaxe BT45's front and rear, good stuff too
