Need parts for 1980 Yamaha 425
I have a 1980 Yamaha 425. It is street legal dirt bike. The one I have does not have a center stand or side sand. I have to lean it up against something. It looks like a side stand can be mounted on the bike. Has anyone out there had this kind of bike?, and if so, did it have a side stand? Does anyone know where I might find one?
Also, the bike leaks gas when it sits. Over a couple of weeks time, all the gas in the tank would leak out. The leak is coming from the carburetor and it leaks even when the gas supply from the tank is shut off. I guess I need to replace the gas shut off valve on the gas tank. Would this likely solve the problem? I was thinking I might also want to rebuild the carburetor because the float might not be working right.
