Great πŸ‘Œ INFO in these

Re: Yamaha RD60 Megathread (Shifty50 content)

Hey Ted. I got this yg1 race setup. We should talk to make it rip dicks. This engine has cut rotor and a few other tricks. Need to make this bike alive again. Got a few cylinders (74cc) and a few bottom ends.

What's everyone's opinion on running the Yamaha autolube with the 70cc airsal kit and a vm20 ?

Skip it and run premix? How does one re calibrate the pump to work with 50cc/15mm carb vs new 70cc/20mm carb?

Thanks

If you are modding the engine I would get rid of the autolube. I know they work very well in stock form but I would trust it at high rpms

Been up the back burner but starting to put work on her again. 47.6mmx42mm (bore and stroke) HPI ignition. Should be fun. Once running I'm going to strip her down for a paint job. BTW this is Ted's old YZ80 top end bike but with a different engine entirely (edited)

Truth of the matter is the battery is gone/bypassed. The right hand kill switch doesn't work and the key is missing. It took a flathead screwdriver to turn. Attempting to rewire a kill switch. Ive got the main switch and key deleted. Bike still starts and run but I have to unplug the black wire at the stator to stop it. Anyone know what wires I need to use to setup a new kill switch? Image of wires coming into the headlight. I tried grounding the black wire. Didn't work. thanks for reading.

This is my annual reminder for this thread: the RD60 is not a Shifty50.

Hooking up black and black white kills it. Woot.
