If you are looking for RD specific parts try Economy Cycle or HVCCycle, both in the US.

I've bought a few things from Speed & Sport over the years. They are pricey but they are my go-to place when I need a NLA or hard to find NOS Yamaha part. I only use them when I've exhausted all other options.

  I also have a couple of old Hondas,and if I am stuck I use David Silvers,pricy but good,he re-manufactures rare parts ,like exhausts .mudguards etc.

 I can't find anyone that does that for old Yamaha

Motorcycling is not, of itself, inherently dangerous. It is, however, extremely unforgiving of inattention, ignorance, incompetence, or stupidity"
