I was luky, I've found a pair new, original exhaust valves, from a guy how had old stock of Yamaha parts.






The new valves fited, assembled again the engine, cheked timing, adjusted the chain tensioner and I'm almost ready to go.
The welder build the anchor points from the base. The slider fits realy good. I left some other bits to finish. I might get them tomorrow.





I hope I can finish this weekend the basics and go for a second -a little longer- test ride...

I got the bits from the welder. Finished the box for the CDI by adding some tabs and the tow rear fenders are done too.







Assembled the basics of the bike and did a small test ride.
No seat or handlebar grips. No taill light or CDI box and no mufler - man that bitch was loud!
It was the best 1 minute of my life! like I haven't ever ride!
The video was taken in 3 parts, so I joined the video but imgur doesn't allow videos more than 30sec.
So here it is!

Tomorrow I will start with the primer to all the remaining part that need to be paint.

The electric compoments are in the box. I only need a flasher for led indicators






A friend make a gift to me






It's an original DNA miniature air filter. I'm thinking to use it as a crank case breather. I'm just not sure about the color...


Anyway the rear fenders, tail light and the box for the electrics are on the bike.
The wiring is hidden in the tube of the big fender and travels all the way to the front, among with the rear brake line.
I had take pictures of it but I erase those accidentally. I will take some new tomorrow.
Everything is bolted on the bike except the big fender. I want to buy some black bolts to finish that too.

Enough talking, time to post some pics of the bike

So, the wires for the tail light going all the way back alongside with the brake line





Then in to the tube





And the end is coming out from here





Fixed in place the battery





And opened a path for the indicator wires





I had a spear 4-way connector set to power up the tail light





But when I saw the connector I remebered that I had the same 3-way connector somewere





Trashed the old pins and in with the new





The cost for a new oil filer cap is 27 euros
I realy didn't want to buy any.
So with a litle cuting and sanding it turned from this





To this






So many details to take care... But I geting there
I went the seat to redo it for me. Tomorrow I should have it in my hands

Bought some black ergal bolts to replace those I had to the mudguards







And made a aluminium tab to keep the tail light wires away from the rubber






The seat is done. Got it back and two hours ago I left the bike to a workshop to make an exhaust midpipe.








And a small walk around video
