    Hi my 750 sort of hesitates if I give it the full throttle like when I'm trying to pass a car. Say my throttle subjectively would says 70 mph, well for 2-3 seconds my bike says "Let's just stay here at 60". It protests and barks, "I'm staying right here". Then it breaks through and is fine...
  4. Yamaha Trail Bikes

    In 1964 & 1965 Yamaha had two trail bikes styles to choose from. Both were "Trailmasters" and had 80cc rotary valve 2 stroke engines. One model YG1-TK was a center tank style the other MG1-T was a step through frame imitating Honda's famous CT series. Here's my two examples of these trail bikes.

    I've got an old 60's Honda bike that I was always told to be a standard CB160, but now that I'm really looking into it, I'm not sure what it is.

    Hello guys, I have a question. I just got a Yamaha RX50 1983, the midnight special. I was checking the engine and in one of the covers of the engine it shows "600 cc" when this model it's supposed to be a 50cc, does anyone knows why is that?

  11. Building, Restoration & Modification
    Hi all, I'm currently in the process of tearing down and rebuilding this seemingly rare motorcycle. I say rare because the amount of information on it is very little. I've found that this bike is very similar to the GP 125, and this is where I'm sourcing most of the parts I need. I discovered...

    Has anyone changed out the OEM lights (head, tail and/or indicators) for LEDs? How'd you go? Did you have to change anything else out? I''m struggling to find any useful info - given that this is a 6V bike with bayonet globes, finding LEDs that will fit are a pain! Cheers, Justin
