My assumption is that the old filter intakes less air and the new filter “upgrade” allows in more. It might also explain why the previous owner removed the foam.I was brainstorming best of both worlds options.
The cap has a ring of mushy stuff to seal against the can (i assume) …Is this replaceable?Do i need a new cap or just a seal?
My goal is to put on a functional air filter and keep the side body panels.Since the panels attach to the OEM air filter i either need to refurb it or replace the filter and modify the panels to attach some other way.My current OEM filter is missing the foam. Can i modify the filter case by adding back the foam and drilling out a lot of air holes on the outside of the case? Then attach the side p
Two questions:1: What is the diameter of the stock carb intake for an aftermarket air filter?2: will any aftermarket air filters fit beneath the side-cover?Thank you.
I'm looking for suggestions on where to buy QT50:• Replacement brake-pads• Brake CableBrake cables are currently ok but the adjustment ferrels by the brake-levers are rusted and want to replace / clean both if not a huge deal.I'm also replacing the left lever (which is currently broken off at the top and a knife edge) ... any tips are appreciated.
Thank you. I can manage some fender manipulation. I just don’t want to lose the rear all-together.
Replacing the original OEM QT50 tires ... I do not want to lose the rear fender.Option A: The IRC NR77 - Do I order two front tires to clear the rear fender?Option B: I saw PartsPitStop.com can get OEM tires but they're $45 each (which is a lot but I come from the bicycle world and that's less than a road bike tire)Any other favorites to consider?Thank you.
Oh yes ... and the Coil ... already ordered. Got any leads on a OEM right mirror for the 8mm socket?
Yikes. I plan to replace the fuel-line, petcock, fuel filter, air filter and refurb the carb. That should at least get me back to good.
Pops Peds:I'll let you know on the tank. I know I need:• A left lever (it's currently broken at the end and very dangerous)• Right mirror• Functional Speedometer (ignition works .. may just add a bicycle speedo)... plus a bunch of other readily available parts.
Thanks for looking over those images.Yeah, that coil crack is concerning. Is that a "see if it works and then replace" or is that crack a "replace now" thing?Notice the exhaust wasn't bolted on? I think it's original tires too. Lots of fun ahead.
It is red. My plan was to fill the tank with EvapoRust (plugged without a petcock) ... then run a fuel filter and hope for the best.Pics here ... I tried to photo inside the tank with little success but you can see the condition enough to know it needs some help.https://www.flickr.com/photos/189532109@N06/albums/72157719779204955
Thanks PD ... that's the detail I was looking for.
Restoring an all original Yamaha QT50 (79' or 80' ... no odometer) with some surface rust in the tank.Will any in-line fuel filter work? Or would you recommend a specific model for older tanks?Thanks.
