  • An update from Germany

    Hey guys, it's been a while since I posted. I was stationed to Germany a few years ago and progress has been slow working on my bike, but after 9 years, i feel like i finally have the "bones" right and am finally making progress to getting the bike fully rideable again. Attached are a few pictures of my progress. I hope everyone is well.

    I see you don't have much room to work in! Bike is looking good, but I see you are going full race with a chain drive. Try using the EU Yamaha as a source for swing-arm/shaft that will accept the "new" tires. I don't remember the exact model, but one of the UK group did a swap, and IIRC it was almost a bolt up.
