Thanks Tony.

Which makes me wonder. Temporarily running premix I would want to replace the banjo bolts on the jugs with plugs otherwise I would have a big air leak to the cylinder, right?

Would I also want to disco the cable from the pump so it doesn't run dry? I guess I'm not sure. What would be the approved method?

I really like this forum, I'm learning a lot.
Thanks.

Mike

Yes block those, but you can leave the rest connected so you can monitor the oil output of the pump.

If you have not already done so, download the genuine Yam manual from tec section so you have all the correct settings and methods, here is a link to tec section, just scroll down to the D7 - R5C manual

If the original brassware is in the box of parts and undamaged, I would fit those back on - for comparison purposes if nothing else.

The brassware in the rebuild kits can be very hit and miss.

Also, the choke is on the left hand carb and I was just wondering.................!! ::) ::) ::)

+1 to all that

Yes hi 5port correct these are 250 E down pipes and microns.
I'm after the rubber type was hoping by now would be available!
Looks like there still as rare as hens teeth.
Cheers for reply

Cheers, good luck, beware of crap stuff though.  The 250E downpipes can be modified to use with rubbers if you find 400E pipes that you want to use.   ;)

Indeed Tony, indeed!!  :D :D :D

A UK member of the US based Yamaha Enduros forum very recently had a problem with his DT175MX tacho running backwards and, apart from the mirth caused by the possibility that his engine was running backwards (it wasn't!) had everyone stumped for a while.  :-\ :-\ :-\

Turned out that a previous owner had somehow got hold of and fitted opposite rotating tacho drive worm gear  :o :o :o (they are still looking into what bike it might have come from). If someone had suggested that originally, they would probably have been invited to lie down in a dark room!  ??? ??? ???

Thanks for the link and advice from everyone. Will try to find a rough one to have a practice on/ make correct tools for before attempting proper clock I think.....

Excellent news to find it on standard bore, plenty of life left in it then  :)

It has less than 12,000 miles on her.
