Sloppy Joe May possibly Own a  Yamaha Enduro?


Default i THOUGHT i COULD

New here obvy,

Been riding a number of years. Mostly cruisers but picked up a $100 1975 DT 100 to restore. I'm good at fabricating and such but I can't understand electrical worth shit. Can anyone help with a simple wiring diagram to even see if I can get spark? I tried youtube but not much on there for theses specific bikes unless you speak spanish.

Little Help?
Thanks,
Sloppy Joe

Hi guys

Been lurking around reading bits and pieces for awhile and it was time to join! I am in rural western australia and recently picked up a 1980 DT250 that i couldnt turn down. Been rebuilding landcruisers for years and thought i might try my hand at a bike.

Default The bike I always wanted

Hello,
I just joined today. I had a dt125b as a kid and I'm in the process of buying a 77 dt250 project bike. I remember being at the dealership in the late summer of '76 (while my brother and I spent all our hard earned money on that '75) and looking at the new dt's for '77 with the monoshock setup. Unfortunately the price range was out of our league at the time but I never forgot the yearning I had for those 77 models! Since then I've owned some dirt bikes including my current wr400...but look forward to reliving my youth with this dt250.

Default Thanks for the add!

I am from Campbell River BC. Canada. I have just acquired a 1982 XT200. I have started the search to replace all that is missing on it to return it back original condition. I grew up with Yamaha Enduros, so this bike brings me back. I am not sure if I am posting in the right spot to introduce myself I hope I am though.

Cheers,

Neil

Default Hello from Alabama

Hello Yamaholics, I am one too! The 1972 and 73s are my favorites and a few of the 74s. I did own a 1976 YZ125x, 1980 YZ250 (wheelie machine) and a 1980 yz 400. I raced evo on the 250 for awhile and let some green stuff get in my eye. Now my Yamaha collection includes a 2016 TTR 230 for a play bike, 1972 CT2 175 and 1973 DT3 250. For vintage MX I have a 1974 Husqvarna CR250 Mag. I also have a 1974 Penton 125 Six Day and 1974 Honda TL125 and finally a 1974 Suzuki TS 185. To complete (ha ha) my collection I want a 1973 AT1 125, 1972 Yamaha 100 Enduro LT2 and a 1973 RT3 YAMAHA 360. THe Honda and Penton are on the sales block to finance the next purchases. Any way, thats some of my story. I love motorcycles and especially the Yamahas. Good talking with you guys and hope to hear some of your good times.

Now, start a thread in one of the sections that pertain to what you need to ask/ show. ( see, you didn't really need my help after all. )
Welcome ! and keep it going !

Default Newby intro

Hello All, Not a mechanic and I don't (yet) know a lot about these bikes, but I'm willing to learn. I have always enjoyed wrenching on cars mostly, but now I think I have found my new hobby. For whatever reason, I love these old bikes and I want to get a few and have fun with them. I picked up a DT400D for cheap as a starter. It needs a lot of work but it does run.

I look forward to learning a lot here from all of you who've done it.

Default Chris from Northern California

I've had a fairly long history with Yamaha enduro's. Started I think in 71 when the first Endure 60 came out. Paid 320.00 for it new. Slowly paid my parents back with my paper route income of about 25 a month.Followed by a 125, 175, and a 360 in later years. Rode every day for years it seemed. Now that I'm old, starting to completely refurbish a RT2. Also have a CT1 and CT2 take need a redo. It's really nice to see all of the time and effort spent by everyone to help us less knowledgable members. I hope I can help in some way. Glad to be a member.

Hello, I'm Rusty and I have a motorcycle addiction.

I've got a 2014 DT 175. Yes, in a couple of places these things are still available new (Africa and and Mexico). This one is a 3TS9 variant which means drum brakes front and rear, 6V electrical, and tube tires.

I'm the second owner and as of right now it has around 3000km on the odometer. I've had to rejet it since I'm at altitude ( 2000m ) and was running poorly when I first got it. It's technically the second 2T that I've ever owned but definitely the first I've turned wrenches on.
