Thanks for all the ideas.
I am going to pick up the selector drum clip today and fit it, I dont like riding thinking the selector drum may shift sideways and the gearbox jam up!

I will explore the capacitor and points.

I did run this bike without a filter but there is a very fine rust that comes out of the tank. The bike is an import and the bike has always behaved like this for me. The cases have been split in the past before I got it, but when it runs it runs like a dream. No leaks anywhere.

The electric start didnt work and I replaced two of the four brushes that were corroded in. Starts fine now. I did wonder if it might be flipping into starter mode instead of dynamo mode, sapping power, and the noise is the relay regulator box chattering......

Off to get the selector drum clip now.....

I've read, possibly on this forum, that there are counterfeit NGKs in circulation. I've no idea how to spot them though.

Here is some info on fake NGK plugs

It's a weird set up!

The spring attaches to a link that sits on the main footrest bracket. I have attached a couple of distinctly average photos, viewing between the left silencer and engine.

I have also (hopefully!) attached the parts manuals for the 1E8 and 2R7 bikes, which show the relevant parts. If I'm not successful, they are in the Tech Library.

Misfiring , spluteering coupd point to many areas !!!
points , condensors,  coil, ht leads...... carbs , dirt in fuel ...., timing ,
even tick over setup .
seems you are not sure it's plugs a d it is unlikely to be petrol
in my experience.


Has the bike run fine historically prior to this "sudden " sputtering?
What petrol you use ?

(i too would be interested in what petrol to use
95? Or as high as you can get ?)

If it helps, virtually all Yamahas of that era used the same colour coding for their wiring. So if you can't find one for the YDS7, then you could do worse than check out one for a different model.

I agree your spray job is spot on !

I must however knock the spraying off myself and
that allows that dosh for the frame shot blasting
and powder coating to be done.

I am not bad spraying but not trained.
Here is my GPZ750r1 which I sprayed. This was more of
a wreck than my RD. Managed to get exact colour mixed at
Halfords. All using halfords paint.

I find as long as you do the sequence from prep
to polishing it is always "ok " and enourmiusly rewarding and makes
it more your bike ......

Will take me a week to get sorted and stacks of work !
You guys can either watch 8 days to the moon ... or read
thread on 7 days to spray a tank .....

Do you need feeding up Paul, surely you should be thinking of the power to weight ratio, still i guess you will be pushing what ever bike you bring as it will probably blow up by the end of the run :(


Harsh.... But probably true...
