The heat and air is cool but can be very dangerous if you are standing in the wrong place. But then again there might not be a right place. LOL

Yep our friend wanted it. He will have fun with it.

I had to go to the chiropractor yesterday to get adjusted as I was way out of wack after the last weekend with the races. I figured in the afternoon I would install the clutch cable. I didn't really think about looking at the old cable till after I made this nut to help with locking the stationary end.



It just didn't seem right. I pulled out the old cable that I had stashed away and lo and behold it is the wrong cable. I bought it off Ebay from a seller who I won't mention, who supplies lots of vintage Yamaha parts. Now I will have to wait till he sends me another one or I get it some where else.

I went ahead and assembled the carb and changed out the idle screw. I like the spring jobs better than the one with the locknut.



I installed the new cable into the slide and got it ready for mounting. Somehow I had broken the needle off when I put all the parts in a box for later use. Luckily I had the right needle to replace it.

I installed the new air boot and some new hose clamps I had laying around. They are hex head instead of phillips but I don't really care as this is not a concourse restoration.




Put the carb cap on and snaked the cable throught the frame and hooked it up to the throttle. It was cool too hear the wonderful sound of SNAP as the slide returned in the carb. Life is real good.

Broke out the new grips and installed them with some fast drying lacquer paint to set them and tightened up the levers.




Figured I would include this pic. I have the pipe mounted and what is suprising is that you would think that they would have designed this pipe a little better.
Got SPRINGS?

The last thing I did last night was pull out the heat gun and take the old stickers off the side panels. They came right off which was a real bonus. I have had stickers not want to come off before and in the time it takes you might as well buy new side panels.




More to come.

Thanks Ray.

Don't be sending me your bike and beer. I have enough to do, and I can't be bought.

After going to my dad's house yesterday to gather up stuff that belongs to me...........it is a very long story and not for here. I got to work on my foot pegs. I disassembled them and gave them a coat of paint and let them sit over night. Put them on today along with the shifter and the mag cover.

I had some PE tubing laying around and plumbed up the carb overflow lines. If this stuff doesn't work I will get some colored plastic tubing from the local bike shop. They are cut the right length so that is a bonus.

I did some clean up around the back of my house and put away some stuff from last weekends camping. Then I decided to put the back brakes and lever together. The PO had stuffed a bolt through the front mount and I wanted a pin instead. I cut a bolt down and chucked it up in the lathe to make a cool pin. I could order it but it may take a week or so to get it. I love my little lathe.





This is what I did last weekend camping. Race crew.

It took me a couple of hours to get the rear brakes set up. I couldn't remember how the PO had done it. Thanks to some pics I figured it out. I did have to put a return spring on the brake lever to make it all work. The cable set up was a period upgrade and if it doesn't work I will go with a rod.

During todays festivities I mounted the side panels. I had read about people painting side panels with Fusion paint and had to try it. My opinion is DON"T DO IT. It is totally ghetto so I will be buying new side panels. Here is the bike in the light. I have some more stuff to take care of. I hope to have this thing done it a couple of weeks.





I really hate the front fender and it will go and be replaced with the correct one.

More to come.

Wow, that is nice.

I'd like to find one like what's behind the 400 and fix it up. Is it a 250? In the 80's?
