Well... that fucker needs a lot of work.

You'd think the fucking idiot riding it would have check the pinging and knocking noises coming from the engine before it ate thru the piston! Setting the timing would have helped too.

That was my first street bike. Same year and color. I had a lot of fun on it for a couple years. Put some Yamalube in the reservoir under the seat, gas it up, and go. Quick and wheelie prone. Sold it and bought a Honda CB750, I could haul the chicks better on the 750.

I raced box stock...no need to do anything to the pipe besides remove the packing and drill 1/4" holes in all the indented pedals to create back pressure..

FYI that is a Daytona head and I would be willing to bet he used an after market head gasket not a copper one and he sucked air and ran lean


tell him to take it to the Two Stroke Extravaganza on the 18th

Just got back from a Ducati meet this week at Tail of the Dragon.

2 Stroke club was at The Crossroads of Time at the Deal's Gap Motorcycle Resort. They were all over the area!

Fuck you
6 American dollars ... that is my offer... I pay just a tad over scrap prices as the 400 is not the desirable 2 stroke triple.

My first ride was a bone stock 75 Yamaha RD350 that I bought, along with a windshield, rain suit, and a helmet for $600. Rode it around the block for an hour learning how to ride, as I had never ridden a motorcycle before, then took off for home 75 miles away. Great little bike and wheelie machine.
However, I would NOT buy that trouble in the posted photos for half the asking price!
