    As promised update on the Bearclaw. She fits no rubbing. Spacer I made for the JT Sprocket looks like it's gonna work perfectly

    Extremely impressive!
    I'm running the original tire(s) and original sprocket. In my case if I was to upgrade to a Bearclaw like yours I'm assuming I would not need a spacer?
    Did you put one on the front as well?
    You don't have your rear brake linkage-rod hooked up yet. Will it clear the Bearclaw? Looks real close.

    No, you won't need a spacer. My rear sprocket was toast. I replaced it with a JT Sprocket same tooth count ,but it's not "dished" like the OEM... In order to make it work I had to make a spacer (by cutting down the OEM sprocket) You can also get the DMO adapter which I also own and recommend. Yes, I'm running the Bearclaw on the front too. I have the same setup on my Honda FatCat and love them. Good eye the rear brake arm it clears it fine. I just didn't have it on yet when I took the picture.

    I ordered the outer one, still don't have the inner. Sixpepper gave me some info but I didn't write it down and already forgot it.

    F2503238-8664-408A-B57C-48A19DF0959E.jpeg Getting the BW350 together after buying it missing a few pieces. It was used as a parts bike to a guy that owned a few 350’s. I noticed there is a threaded bolt hole on both sides of the frame that the tank fits over. It doesn’t seem to have a purpose. Any ideas? Also, what is the difference in the 2 model years if any?

    Those mounts under the tank have been a long debated subject with no reasonable answer as of yet.
    The difference between both years are mostly cosmetic, (decals) and at some point during the '88 year model production, the clutch and stator cover bolts were changed to Allen head bolts in place of Phillips.
    All parts between years interchange.

    Hope that muffler I sent is working out for you Ted!

    No luck finding my notes yet ,but did check my eBay ordering history. I believe the OEM inner oil seal on the 200 jackshaft is
    P/N 93101-42018-00 or a non Yamaha oil seal P/N SKF 16504
    Hopefully someone can confirm this

    I have a pair of Big Wheels, an 86 BW350 and an 87 BW200.
    They are titled and registered in Florida.
    This makes them street legal, kinda, but not very street capable. They have headlights, tail lights and brake lights; no mirrors or working signals. I did this just to be able to connect the trails.

    My kids are grown and gone, so they don't get much attention. (We all have WR250s from riding the TAT and all my attention is dedicated to my Husaberg.)

    I'd like to sell them as a pair. I'd like them to go to someone who appreciates them.

    The 350 is awesome and is the one I primarily rode, it is in great mechanical shape and has been well loved.
    The 200 has had a lot more love and shows it. Runs great and has always been reliable, but could use some attention. Clutch is a little soft and fork seals leak. Battery doesn't hold a charge so we just kick start it. it is missing the plastic side covers.

    I'd appreciate some advice on value. I have a good idea, but haven't watched closely in the last couple of years.

    I'd confirm it with what sixpepper sent you before you order one. He's been dancing with these Fat girls alot longer than I have.

    Is there a Bigwheel registry or list of serial numbers? I am curious to know just how many of these are still together and being used.

    Awaiting the deer while doghunting in central Florida. Unfortunately, nothing ran past me but it was fun letting the BW200 rip. 20200111_093759.jpg 20200111_095633.jpg 20200111_095715.jpg 20200111_112737.jpg

    So seriously,
    I’d appreciate any advice on value before I throw these out on the Flea Market.
