Sourcing new parts.
« on: October 11, 2017, 08:54:36 PM »
Will be starting a resto soonish (after some riding fun!) on my RD 125 dx. I know Yambits are good for some parts, but are there any other places i can shop on-line? If only Yamaha did the same as Lings Honda uk spares!

Fowlers for some genuine parts (whatever is still available, which isn't a great deal).
Wemoto also have bits and bobs.
Otherwise, I'm afraid it's down to scouring Ebay for decent pattern or second-hand parts.

You need to download the parts list from this site which is helpful anyway, and essential if you are ordering from Fowlers, but I have found them pretty helpful and patient. Some of the parts are shared with the RD200, but many are different so beware!
I do have a few 125 bits if you want to PM me with a list.

Down load a parts manual (there on this site somewhere) and then search using the actual parts number.

Eg if you are looking for a new headlight rim search for 'Yamaha 233-84115-60-00' It's pretty amazing the amount of times you get a hit.

Also, despite what everyone says, Yamaha in Japan still hold a reasonable amount of stock, particularly for high wear items or for items which they used across a number of different bikes.

If you talk nicely to your local yamaha dealer, they can search on the link to japan. Way more stock held than you might think.
