    XDS Yamaha 250?

    I am headed to Wisconsin next week to visit my brother and his family. My 16 year old nephew picked up an old 1968 Yamaha 250 that needs some "fine tuning" (his words). From how he describes it I think it is an XDS -- did the XDS come as a 250cc? Anyone have any knowledge as to forums or websites dedicated to old XDS? I'd like to find a Clymers for that engine...

    Thanks

    Ken: We'll be in the Milwaukee area from July 4th to 15th. I grew up in Bay View (Southside of Milwaukee). Going back to visit with the family and friends and also hit the BMW international rally in West Bend. I also went to school in Madison and spent a lot of time in Adam's Friendship. Where about's do you live?

    Yeller,
    I live just north of Menomonie. I don't have any plans to be in the souther part of the state during the time you are here, but you never know. Maybe I can dream up an excuse. I went to high school at Whitefish Bay. I am a north sider, but used to work at a Yamaha dealer in Cudahay.
    Too bad you are not going to be here a week later, I am going to race at Brainerd the weekend of the 20th with CRA. I haven't been to Brainerd since 81. I will have an extra cb350 you could race too.

    Texy,
    If you could find the midwest, you could come on out and I would let you ride it too. You probably wouldn't like Brainerd, it is a real track compared to Summit. Long straight with some real fast turns and some tough technical turns too.

    My brother lives in Cudahy. Did you ever hear the saying, "My friends told me to kiss the girl where it smells, so I took her to Cudahy." I wish I had the vacation to extend my trip. It would be a blast to run Brainerd... I hear it is a blast. T-10 carousal must be a crazed hoot.... sitting between two long straights. I imagine it is all about caring the speed.... good luck and thanks for the offer.
