Just getting started on my ty 350

7 posts in this topic

Well I've just started my learning curve of trial's riding and now I'd like to ask a few questions.Picked up a 1986 ty 350 with a 250 top end over a year ago, after a carb clean and a trans flush I was able to ride it for 6-8 riding hrs. However first start up's are getting harder and harder [ to let you know I'm a tech at a yamaha shop 20 years] so I'm sure she's a little tired and I'd like to freshen her up.Is there any one stop shopping for parts or do I need to search here & there on the web?

 Is it the picture? Or are those Not trials bars. Cannot tell what is up with the front brake cable mount, but the mod was to replace the factory mount with a short block of aluminum with it threaded for the cable. Idea was to give it a firmer pull. Also has the flywheel been shaved of weight. 8-14 oz seemed best. You can take the whole weight off, but it does not work as well. If it is an `86 it should have a remote reservoir for the rear shock. They were great bikes!

yes this is the picture. this is how I got it so the bars may have been changed not too sure what mods have been done over the years . What I'm most interested is to source top end parts or a place that deals in vintage bikes [ I'm half thinking giving Barbour Museum a shout ]

 Top end parts are easier for the 250, just about impossible for the 350. The 250 version ran better.

Hi,

This might give you some idea of what a 1986 ty looked like in action.

 

Enjoy
