Frame Paint

Recommended Posts

New to me 74 TY 250 as of yesterday.

Can anyone recommend the proper frame paint for this beauty?

TIA

Medium silver metallic. There looks to be plenty of original paint there to do a match at a paint shop if you want it to be exact. The wheel hubs are the same colour as the frame.

How early is the frame/engine number? I see it has the early type fork sliders.

Feetupfun : the matching numbers are. 434-006798

Can you tell me how early of a production model this is?

Do you know if Yamaha provided a MSO or title at time of sale? I received a bill of sale at time of sale.

Thank You

That is not very early but early enough to have the fork sliders they started production off with.

Another thing that changed during production of the 434 model is the cylinder casting. The earliest production bikes have an un-finned section above the exhaust port.

I've heard that production TY250A numbering started at 434-000101.

Sorry I have no idea about title or MSO in your country.

Great looking bike you have Peter, very original condition and still has the lights fitted.

Can someone please tell me what changes were made to the fork sliders?

The drain holes on the fork sliders on that bike are at the side. Later sliders have the drain holes at the rear.

In Canada and I believe the USA was the same, all the paperwork to register was provided by Yamaha to the retailer.

Interesting, My cylinder is unfinned above the exhaust port.

Sounds like they changed the cylinder casting and fork sliders at some point after 006798.

There was also a change to a plastic base for the seat pad instead of steel at some point
