looks a good project,is that a green tank?looks like a uk rear mudguard,does it have seperate rectifier and regulator 😀9th June 2011 at 8:24 pm #8060
All the bodywork is original (as far as I can tell) and green, the mudguard is really wide and joins to a black plastic one about halfway up.
Paperwork says declared new at first registration in Jan 78 but I don’t know what model it is other than a B something. Not 100% clued up on these yet.
Reg/rec had already been removed and I hope is in the pile on the shelf, few bits of other bikes seem to have been thrown in so I don’t know what’s what at the moment.
Edit: Found it, it’s a B2, which means it’s the wrong colour right?10th June 2011 at 4:06 pm #8056
think green ia a b3 colour but i think looks briliant, lots of electric bits on ebay at moment,worth grabbing some spare bits 😀11th June 2011 at 4:32 pm #8061
Front caliper is also in the B3 position but frame definitely corresponds to a B2.
Regarding reg/rec, I have one reg on it’s own and one aftermarket reg/rec. Not sure which (if either) is hooked up til I get my knitting needles out and work my way through the wiring.
Previous owners favourite tool seems to have been wire clippers.15th June 2011 at 5:50 pm #8062
Right, hopefully philpass is still alive and not died from holding his breath…
This is what I have (pic is clickable), am I mising anything you have for sale before you flog it all?
I know there are two starter solenoids, only 1 is wired up, everything else is connected.
I don’t know if E is from this bike, seems a bit big, similarly don’t know if correct coil and I don’t know what H is yet…15th June 2011 at 5:55 pm #8057
looks like you have it all mate,breathed when i went deep blue,cant expect dougie to rush lol15th June 2011 at 5:57 pm #8063
So since both “F” and “I” are wired up, I have multiple redundancy?15th June 2011 at 8:38 pm #8058
e fits near the coil on the coil bracket,the small black one is a brake warning switch i think20th June 2011 at 10:05 pm #8066TangoParticipant
Wedge any chance you or anyone can label the letters of your parts?
And if any help with bits is needed ill still be glad to help if I can. 😉20th June 2011 at 10:22 pm #8064
I can give it a go, but bear in mind I’ve been stripping down 2 bikes (this one is being done up, Yamaha is sacrificing itself to pay for the restoration) and not really had much chance to research yet. Add to this the fact that most of the loom had already been disconnected by the time I got the bike…
A = ignition barrel
B = coil (just one on these?)
C = Starter solenoid (I have a spare, see J)
D = ………
E = condenser???
F = regulator (don’t know why I have this, see I)
G = flasher relay???
H = self-canelling unit or brake light???
I = reg/rec
J = another starter solenoid
Anyone feel free to fill in the blanks20th June 2011 at 10:35 pm #8067TangoParticipant
Cheers this will help when im sussing mine out, I read the bike have a brake light fail switch, As far as I can tell it near the back behind the battery?
Am I wrong or are these bikes from the 70’s? You dont get that kind of stuff on new bikes 😮20th June 2011 at 10:44 pm #8065
