dude! that sucks. well you've got two options, sell it all off or just build yourself a 400 motor. that one was going to need going over anyway. the chassis is in pretty good shape by the looks of it. I'm sure you could find a motor that needs a rebuild for real cheap. at least you haven't really lost any money yet <img src=icon_smile_blackeye.gif border=0 align=middle>

you have to remember that those motors had alot of interchangable parts. the top ends especially. i know the ds7 was a 250 bottom with a 350 top. so hang on there, what you have may be something worth while.

if you can get some better pics, that might help too.

Hi,

Thanks for the follow up Joe. I'll see about getting some better pictures and putting them up. I also posted a question about parts interchangeability out at http://www.yamaha-rd.com after reading your post.

Thanks
Jason

Jay,

I have a bunch of RD 350 parts I want to get rid of that could help you out if you want to keep the 350. I need to get rid of this stuff. I have too many bikes right now so getting rid of the RD stuff would be great for me. I could trade or you could buy cheap! I dont live very far from Maine.

Chuck,

Thanks for the offer on the 350 parts. What type of stuff do you actually have? My brother may be interested as he's thinking of taking over the RD project. I'm flip flopping from bike to bike so quickly that I can't even keep up. I think I'm <img src=icon_smile_evil.gif border=0 align=middle> possesed!
