Those TX750 starter clutches look an awful lot like the well-known POS in my Honda CB450K5. And the portion of the sprocket the rollers run on is 42.16mm in diameter. Hmmmm...

Little update to starter clutches. These will be different design, fully hardened to 55 HRC and come with special bolts.

Hi TX750 owner/riders. I have just today joined ADV in search of news and sharing of information on these interesting and handsome big early 70 Yam twins. I have recently purchased a low mileage Australian delivered bike which was the personal ride of a Yamaha dealer principal until he passed away 10 years ago. It is Competition Green in colour, very original except for the fitting of the post delivery factory deep sump and oil cooler kit. It hadn't been ridden or started for about 10 years and I was able to fire it up last weekend. I have fitted new tyres and aim to install a new battery this weekend and hopefully take it for it's first outing. I am keen to see if the starter motor works, but great to see there are a number of modifications being offered or discussed in this thread. Cheers

Copy a link from a hosting service (like Photobucket), click on the postcard icon above, and right click, paste, insert. dun.

Hi Easyrider,
I too am in Australia, Melbourne in fact, is that the bike that Penna Motorcycles had ?? I purchased the first one that they put on Ebay, the second one went for $2950.00 I think. I never saw the third. Shoot me an email, promctun@bigpond.net.au and we can compare bikes. I have a ton of info that I have gathered over a period of time. I would be interested in that starter gear set up, so could agro also please email me with a costing. Thanks Daryl.

Another TX750 nut here"

Fellas,

Found this site while doing some random net searching for something for my '73. I am weeks away from getting my bike back on the road after my garage restoration. I had resigned myself to kick only as the first time I opened up my left side inner cover, pieces fell out. I am eager to hear about the availability of these starter clutch mods. Hopefully they will be out soon. I too have a good bunch of info to share with other TX aficionados and look forward to posting pictures when my bike is complete.

Some news to my starter clutches. As some of you know, I've had massive problems ordering special screws from a German hardware manufacturer. Finally, I was confirmed by their top brass the screws are currently in production. Wow, it only took 3 months to have them produced ;(((
Thank you for your patience.

XV250 Starter modification

Hi everyone, these are the photos of the Yamaha XV250 starter clutch modification for the TX750. I hope they might be able to help someone. I had a local machine shop do the machining since the parts are hardened. NOS parts for the XV250 are available through ebay. I thought I would be able to use my old TX750 starter sprocket, however the little amount of wear that it had required me to replace it with a new one. You need to still use the TX750 starter sprocket. Good luck to everyone with their TX's.
