Just a revisit to my 73 RD350
« on: January 31, 2021, 02:00:00 AM »
After completing my 73 RD350 I noticed the clutch would slip at high RPM. Well, after finding out about the "Old clutch" Yamaha installed in the 73, I found a lot of help here on this forum and a invaluable resource was a member known as 5port. He provide me with clear concise answers to the upgrade and when I finished the clutch upgrade, (With Barnett springs & plates) it caught me off guard as the front wheel went skyward. No worries, it was under control and a whole lot of fun. Although I have many Vintage 70's 2 strokes, the lil' RD is one of my favorites. It runs perfect.
