And the restoration begins in earnest...axle and chain tensioners ordered from eBay (wyldflower002) and a $300 order from Partzilla. Also waiting on DMOBill about swing arm bushings before ordering the sprocket adapter and jackshaft kit.

I tried to order some stuff from bigrus60 on eBay but he's not interested in doing business with Canadians....oh well...his loss.

The ring was welded to the sleeve in 1987 by a Yamaha employee that probably retired 15 years ago. I think it will be difficult to get Yamaha to honor any warranty at this point.

Fortunately for me, the ring on the sleeve in the picture is held solidly in place with the strong chemical bond of rust and a thin layer of silver Krylon.
I was wondering why there's a ring on my wheel sleeve. Mine's a little bit more crusty.

RobDek, and EVERYONE ELSE on this forum,

I state this with 100% urgency: DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM BIGRUS60!

I asked him about a BW350 engine he had for sale. He told me it was excellent condition. After $250 + $125 shipping, I received a BW350 engiine with a hole punched up thru the bottom of the centercases large enough to pass a golf ball thru. When I contacted him about it, he accused me of causing it.

Remnants of part 26 I reckon...



Also, is the brake lining available separately? Looks like part 7 is both hub and lining.

Sprocket adapters and jackshaft kits are in stock. I just received steel for eccentrics on Thursday. If all goes well, the swingarm kits should be available in February. I WILL be sure to post on this forum when they are ready.

RobDek,

Thank you for your order. Monday is a holiday here so I will ship on Tuesday.

BW200 and BW350 swingarm kits will be available very soon, along with wheel adapters. I don`t want to give too much away, but I do have some big ideas for performance improving parts to go with the replacement wear parts I`ve been making.

DMOBill was right. There's definitely an extra spacer in there. I wonder if that was even the stock axle?

Aren't Sawsalls great! They solve all the problems vice grips can't touch.

Gotta love hillbilly restoration.

That's rotten. I hope you're filing a complaint.

I'd like to see DMOBill replicate these bearing spacers in aluminum. Most of them are fairly rusty at this point since they haven't seen the light of day for 20 years. They are a really heavy chunk of steel.

I've been thinking of putting lightnening holes in mine when I change the bearings but aluminum versions would be much more preferable. The spacers in my KTMs are always aluminum.

That is probably not a high-demand part, however.
