I don't know if that's the correct term but I'm looking for the breather fitting that goes on the top of the Yamaha race bike tank. Like on a TD2 or similar. Anybody have a source for one of these?

Thanks, Craig

the tz has just a pipe with a tube you attach.

hey craig, are you running works shocks on your cb? what type of a setup did you use for the shock bolts? mine comes really close to the sprocket nuts. like real close. i have spools on my shock lower bolts so i dont think i can reverse them. im looking for some real skinny graqde 8 or better nuts now. but im using 10mmx1.5 so it aint easy.

Joe...check McMaster....they have "Jam Nuts" which are about half the thickness of normal nuts.
Or..."low head" bolts...same deal.

JC,

I have Works shocks and had the same problem. The problem went away when I switched to the SL350 swingarm. It's wider than the stock swingarm. The guru was correct, you need either Jam Nuts or Low Head nuts. That sounds enough like porn that this reply might get deleted.

yeah, i already ordered some metric jam nuts. i was just wondering if that was how most people deal with it. i also noticed that 360 sprocket nuts and studs, even though they are the same pattern, are longer. the sl swingarm would be the enswer to why chris' doesnt come close.

thanks a million!

so craig, got a pic of the thing youre looking for??? chris' tz tanks all just have a little 90 degree piece of tube that sticks out of the top of the tank on the front left. then he coils a hose up to keep it from leaking. i know its supposed to have something else though.
maybe brett has a source.

I was at Karl's house last night.

I was told that the yamaha breather would fit. But when we looked at a real yamaha breather from Karl's bike there's no way that will fit on my tank. So I'm still looking.

why the loss of the 250gp part? 2 championships in the class just don't measure up to 4? it's not about you any more.

"250gpchamp" just went to "champ". trying to figure out why. thought that maybe his 2 championships to my 4 was the reason...of course js usually doesn't eat humble pie so maybe there's another reason...
sorry for being so cryptic aaron; you're right (see, i can admit when i'm lame). it did get lost in translation or should i say without translation. and you're right again, you do need spell checker. and you still need to deal with that wheel thing.
