howdy, folks. Love the site, even the whiners (they're funny). just in case anyone is interested I'm a mc mechanic in upstate ny and also have quite a bit of nos kawi and yamaha parts in stock. reach me thru the forum or www.oneontamotorsports.com , state needs and we'll tell you if we've got it. also, we're pretty handy with a wrench (and a hammer) but you guys seem to be light years ahead in the What-fits-what and go-fast departments; what being racers and all.

BTW, does anyone know what other mufflers will fit a MAC header, or where else I can get a 4-1 system for a 78 cb550k pref chrome?

thanks much
pete

got any kawi triple parts?

AS far as what fits, my new kick is to grab those pacesetter monza car exhaust tips (dual outlet) because they actually have baffles and packing in them and most speed shops carry reducers to fit them to motorcycle pipes.

Hey Geeto, I remember you suggesting throwing Monza tips on my exhaust last season...

Did you ever do it yourself? Or get a Pic?

Hey By'
I bought the tip and the reducer to fit it, but I have to drop the exhaust to do some motor work on the bike it is going on so I have not tested it. I might put it all back together this weekend and If I do I'll snap a pic (it is hard for me to take pics of anything).

Thanks alot, I'd appreciate it.

I'm still throwing exhaust ideas around.

Right now I have a cheap-o reverse megaphone I can use but it's opening is smaller than the opening on the exhaust (it was a gift), and I'm not sure if I want to step down to a smaller size.

Hey Pete,
Got any TZ125 friction plates? They are no longer being made and they might fit the air cooled clutch I built for my YA6. Have you ever worked on one of those?

Frank,
You might be able to find plates that will work with some research. I've found replacements for some hard to find Honda plates by cross-referencing using various part numbers....often Honda will use the same plates in about 20 different bikes...yamaha probably does the same.

which parts do you need for what triples? have lots of oem kawi gaskets, cables, hard parts, etc. not too many pistons but if you know what sizes you need might have them, too. and if a TZ125 is the same as a TA125, no clutch plates but will do more research. if you can give dimensions maybe there's a full set of Vesrah plates here someplace.

The problem is the TZ plates are dry type and all the others are wet. I have Barnett but they look like some kind of cork. They last forever running wet and never slip. They also fit about 10 Yamaha models.

for my 76 KH500 I need a throttle cable (both pieces), Clutch Cable, choke cable, oil pump gasket, and an oil injection pump if you have one lying around.

e-mail me at [email protected] to let me know if you have parts and prices.

The singles have baffels and packing in them too, but less than the doubles. I went with the doubles to get as much sound deadening as I could since they are basically straight throughs like cherry bombs but not as long. The one cool thing that helps them is that I remember these on cars in the 80's and the baffels are designed to "tune" the sound so it sounds like a ferrari which takes some of the edge off of straight pipes. I don't imagine that they are neighbor friendly but they are better than drags.

Pete's shop is just down the street from me. He's a good guy. If anyone gets parts from him I could bring them to the race school on the 30th.

Thanks, Jack. Always nice to hear something positive! Hope the sand gets off the roads soon.

pete, any word on those parts I asked about:

e-mail me at [email protected] to let me know if you have parts and prices.

Hey Geeto! Tried to e-mail you at the address you gave but I'm guessing it didn't work. Anyway, I have the throttle and choke cables but not the rest of the parts. Would a different oil pump from a single work? Also, the clutch cable is available thru parts unlimited (I can get it for you, too). Throttle cable is $40 (56 retail) and the choke cable is $20 (25 retail). Don't forget the sales tax (8 per cent) and shipping is about 8 or 9 bucks. Let me know if you want 'em.

got the e-mail just spaced on sending a reply. I want them e-mail me where to sent the money. The single oil pumps won't work - I think I have a line on a good used one, I was just hoping for new.

Yamaha did not make a 3rd oversize for the RD350, not according to my microfiche, anyway. Wiseco still makes piston kits for these, though, in .50 mm increments up to 2.00 mm over. Sucks, but I don't have any of these, either.
