biggest problem is the fuel pecocks

get the pingel adapter plates and screw a normal on/off/reserve petcock

the factory ones fail and will not turn off the gas

then the crank cases fill with gas

and many of these had their bottom ends/cranks/cases ruined when they were run with engine oil wrecked by the fuel

parts are expensive and there isn't a lot of aftermarket stuff for them

you don't have to order the stock fuel hand over t's from yamaha

you can strip the plastic off the originals and reuse them with orings out of a standard kit

they are heavy but neat engines/drivelines just the same

some have second gear problems

by now the wiring harness connectors are ready to turn into crayons
