Röhrich,

The pictures are awesome. That bike might be too nice to ride.

This is a picture of the eccentrics and the plastic bushings, to show how they don't match in length.



Shercoman's advice is probably spot on and the plastic bushing should fully support the eccentric. However, his conjecture that Yamaha had planned obsolescence in mind for the BWs is patently ridiculous. We all know that the BigWheel is too far ahead of it's time to ever be obsolete. Right? Yeah, totally.

My personal theory is that the brilliant Yamaha engineers wanted a pocket of grease that would be transported by the the spiral channel in the plastic bushing to keep the eccentric properly lubricated. They were brilliant. Positively brilliant.

Regards,

Mr. BigWheel

Hello everybody,

Yes, thats my Rv90 in the background. I´m also rebuilding it, but I still miss some parts for it that I only can get in the USA.
The tank is not new and not painted. I have sanded the tank with a vibrating sander.
First, rough, and then increasingly finer. And at last I polished it.
It take one day or more, but it looks realy good. Just don´t start to rough.
Otherwise you don´t get the scratches out anymore.

Yesterday we ordered some new ITP MUD LITE tires for our BW200 and 350.
I hope they will come soon.

For the bushings I have to look at one of my other BW´s in Germany.
Maybe I can use them for my own BW. I hope there are in good condition.
Our BW´s where used in a monstertruck show in the Netherlands, so they where
not quite complete when we bought them and also damaged.

Regards,

Röhrich

Here one picture of our Ecorider:

Allen head sidecover replacement screw sets for BW200

I have several nearly stripped side cover screws and am looking for one of the allen head bolt replacement sets. I can't find one specifically labeled for the BW200. Will the allen head bolt sets for the TW200 work with the BW200?

Also, all the TW200 allen head bolt kits seem to be stainless steel. Are they available somewhere in the standard black?

Anyone have a picture of the the inside of the engine with the left side engine cover off? Detailed right around the kickstarter area preferred.. trying to install my kickstarter but the factory diagram isn't helping me out too much.

epix1718,

I imagine that a shot under the cover of a 350 would help not even a little bit, would it?

BWSwamper,

I went to the local fasteners shop with all of the hardware from my case cover "upgrade." All new, allen-head fasteners were relatively cheap. They lasted a whole month before they started rusting. Maybe I should have paid the extra for stainless, but just think of that extra 75 cents that I have left in my wallet.

On the other hand, the Duro 24x11-10 HF243 has been mounted on the Shercoman-modded wheel. It has been studded and is ready to go on the bike. This is a pre-stud picture:



It has a rather beach-ball shape to it since it is an 11 inch width on a 10" rim. I think that a 25x12-10 would be a better choice as the sidewall is somewhat exposed to the ravages of the trail.

The Carlisle front has also been mounted and seems to have a narrower profile than would be ideal. I've been too afraid of failure to test it out yet, but the report will be forthcoming.

Regards,

Mr. BigWheel

Carlisle on front?

Mr. BigWheel,

Could you post a photo of that mounted front Carlisle?

That is a 25x8-12. And it's the XL with 3/4" lugs. I might have preferred the 26", but the die is cast.

On the back end is the Duro HF243 24x11-10 on the Shercoman-modified 10" aluminum ITP rim:

Whoa, Whoa. Those Renthal grips were sacrificed to the BW 80 gods. That would have been over the top. Don't want people to think we are pulling "all" the stops out on this mutha.



Found some brake mounting hardware.

More into my BW200 kick start rebuild

Well did some looking today and it appears that directly underneath the clutch assembly there is a insert (surrounded by black plastic) that looks like another shaft goes into.. any idea what this is for? I am assuming it is for the shaft in the diagram below that has no # attached to it.. what part would this be?



You can somewhat see the black plastic circle in which the center is a hole, directly underneath the clutch.


I've never really worked much on engines, can someone give me an explanation of what actually happens when you press on the kickstart lever? What are the gears actually rotating?

looks like I am missing some parts on the decompression shaft too.. might as well order those up.


decompression shaft removed:

Thanks!
Pete

Just got my new ITP MUD LITE tires for our BW200 and 350.
They look GREAT.

I STILL love reading all these BW posts the most, and ESPECIALLY when Mr. BW posts his movies! TWO thumbs up!

Here is my problem though:

I have to many toys! And have had for quite a few years!

So, I have finally decided to off load BOTH my BW's since they never get any use.

Both are VERY low mileage, in fact both STILL have the STOCK tires on them and I would be very surprised if either one has over 750-1000 miles.

Last started about 5-6 years back (I think) but have been inside a nice building with a tarp over them, gas drained, and a squirt of erl in each jug, so I know all that will be required is new batteries and gas added.

They both have Maier handguards, nice trickle charger adaptors and front racks, the big one also has a rear rack, Koplin front mounted gun case, aluminum skid pan, and way custom built fold up rear passenger footpegs.

I have spare air and oil filters for them as well as probably some other misc. parts I need to gather up.

I need to get them out, batteries bought/installed, and started up, but figured I would see if anyone here is interested before I go and post a for sale add on this site or do up a Craiglaist add.

I will probably ask around 2200 for the 350 and 1600 for the little one.

I am located in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Send me Pm and I will try to remember to check back within a couple days.

As long as I do not take them out and go for a ride I should be able to off load em this time! HA!
