Hey Ray, good job. I actually thought about boring the peg and making a brass bushing for it. What else I didn't touch on was the stud is also prone to bending. Personally, the whole stock design sucks. Your fix will be fine. If I was going to do another one of these bikes I would cut the lug off the frame and make new brackets and weld them on to the frame rails. It really could have been designed better. The only draw back could be getting the motor out of the frame with my solution.

I actually attempted to do just that. Bored it, heated it, put the brass bushing in the freezer, attempted to press the bushing in, and CRACKED it. Plan B - made some shim material ...

Uhhhh Sorry Sir, right away Sir.

I received my new billet gas cap this week. This thing is sharp looking and works great............on my MX125C. For some reason it won't fit all the way into my alloy tank but will fit my steel tanks. I contacted the maker and he is going to check his machining. It may just be my tank but who knows. They are supposed to all be the same. He is going to send me another one. When I get my new one I will let you know the sellers business. Really a nice guy.

Left to right, the new billet, stock MX, and the original YZ one that came on the bike that shrunk. It was common on the caps.



Did a little polishing of the canisters. I gotta find stickers for them or make something up.



Random pics.











Now it's time for the pause that refreshes. A cold frosty one.

Looking good..


Regarding shrinking caps... The one on my TY was off the bike or awhile when I first got it and the damn thing ended up being like a 3/4 size cap. It wasthe weirdest thing I have ever seen. I don't know why it did it. I thought maybe from some cleaner we tried in the tank.

You probably could join our club. We are a drinking club with a racing problem.

So continuing on with stuff, I found stuff some stuff I needed in the next town from me. They actually had what I was looking for.

A kill switch, plastic tubing for the carb, and some rubber automotive grommets for the number plate fasteners. The old ones are messed up and brittle. The automotive ones are thinner but work ton's better.

To work on the things I bought I had to dis-assemble some of the bike. Well the whole top of the bike. Tank, seat and sidepanels. I am this far into it time to clean up and fasten some of the wiring. A little zip ty action going on



The new grommets in place. These thing work so much better than stock IMO.



Mounted the kill switch. This bike is a one lead switch so I am converting it to a two wire.

The kill switch I bought had different connectors than the stock Yamaha ones on the bike. No problem as I had some cool plug ins that will work. Don't mind the crappy picture.



While I was doing these things, I took a break............had a frosty one and pulled this out of the parts box. It is beat up pretty good. Time for pounding out dents and thins.



Safety tip of the day. If you cut off the zip ty's like we all do........I like to take a soldering iron to the cut off area and melt them smooth. These things are sharp as a razor and can cut you real bad. I learned this trick from my race car day's.
