Nope, don't have any. I have a '71 RD 350(R5-B) that is almost ready to ride on the road. I have a shop manual covering that bike but I believe it covers from the late 60's. Its a Twin 2 stroke, right?

hi John

i don't think the bike the pic is yg1,it should be yg5,the 5th version of yg in the late 60s or early 70s.

thanks

Alvin,

The tires are still available for both the YG1 & YG1-K.

They are 250 X 17 and 275 X 17 street tires or http://www.onoffroad.com/chengshin.html

I once fitted a 300 x 17 on the rear of a YG1-K. It handled VERY well though the license plate bolts had to be replaced with button head screws to keep from rubbing the taller tire.

The YG1T & YG1-TK models use 250 X 16 rims. Cheng Shin also makes off-road tires in the C755 series in this size. The additional wheel clearance will easily allow for a 350 X 16 if you like climbing hills.

IRC Tires is another manufacturer who still makes vintage sizes.

A new Yamaha YG1 tank is probably worth it's weight in gold. They haven't been manufactured since the early 70's and it would be a very rare find. Your best bet would be to either Kreem your old one to plug up the holes, or find one at a junkyard in decent shape. The tank knee pads (I assume thats what you are referring to) are still out there if you call enough older Yamaha dealers. You may have some luck with Speed & Sport too.
