TY 250 Swingarms and Side Stand
Posted 07 January 2011 - 09:41 PM
I purchased a 1976 TY250C (U.S.) a while back and one of the issues was the side stand was missing and the mounting bracket on the swingarm was broken-off. I purchased a '74 swing arm, side stand and return spring on EBAY but that swing arm shows no mounting bracket at all. In the pictures below, the '76 is on the left and the '74 is on the right. The third photo is of the '76 where the bracket broke (I filed and painted it). The parts diagram at http://www.yamaha-mo...parts/home.aspx shows the same diagram for both years despite the differences and the diagram is not clear. So, I'm looking to see if someone can point me to a couple of photos (preferably close-ups) or diagrams for the mounting bracket. It looks like at this point I'll have to have something fabricated unless I'm missing something.
And on a side note, the '74 came with a chain lube mechanism but it is completely wasted. I was looking forward to seeing how well it worked, or not. So, does any one use the chain-luber and if so what are your thoughts?

Can't help you with the chain lube mechanism as I've never used one, I always blocked them off and manually lubed the chain.
