Anyway Intune have a guy off sick (50% of the staff) so Tim is flat out, said it be 2weeks before he could look at doing it. He did point out that the rear shocks have pitting through the chrome and that makes the hydraulic shaft unroad worthy! Shit I am going to hardtail the thing soon… Other than that he would have to wait and take a good look at her when I bring her back. Also told me my pipes were too loud…SURPRISE!!! Wondering about putting steel wool inside to act as a baffle. Not sure how it will affect breathing.
While out I went to Yamaha as I need to replace my fork seals and dust boots. The forks are currently running dry. Which is not good. The 74 has 34mm forks so it is not compatible with the other two which have the later model 35mm forks.
Amazingly Yamaha still sells these parts:
584-23145-50 DF2 2M Fork Seal 234x46x10.5 Qty 2 =$25.40
278023144-50 DG Seal (Dust cover) Qty 2 =$162.20
That's $162AUD is form Yamaha, Mikes & 650 central are $22US….
Umm guess who I won't be buying from????
Seals are $20US a pair so that is not such a variation.
Hoping there is a cheaper option!
Motorcycle Front Fork Oil Seals
Size = 34mm x 46mm x 10.5mm
Was just riding home now and the rear drum brake pedal has gone soft….
In other words F-all stopping power but will hold stationary on a hill. There wasn't much free play in the foot pedal before but there is a lot now……
Every ride an new issue…..Starting to wonder about the whole old XS thing!
