that's yam 50th anniversary colours? they do another in Kenny roberts
Yep Yam,s 50th , personally didn't like the KR Rep one..
At £1500 for the same paintwork thinking it might be a little too much for something destined too spend most of its time out on track , perish the thought if n when I bin it... :o Now me TZ/ed YPVS Mootah is firmly bolted back in even the wording is Perfect.. ;)
Got a few jobs done on the bike today , popped on the torsion bars under the motor , installed the rest of the clutch assembly , fitted the chain and had a play with sidecasings , found a LC one tucked up in the shed if I,m to use it it,ll need a bit of a trim...That's all for today as me bad knee is on fire..

Had quite a productive day today playing with me electrickery , re-installed all the wiring I removed previously shortening an replacing connectors as I went all looking quite organized again , tomo I,ll sort the wiring for EGT N Vapor dash , fan an electric waterpump then that's the electrics sorted... Need to get a shorter clutch cable then I can install the carbs , all in all pretty appy with how its coming along... An too top it off found the seal to my stator cover so promptly installed...Wont be too long now an it,ll be Singing....
Spent a wee while tinkering today , sorted the hosing for the water pump then had another play with electrics just the fan to mount an wire now an that's the electrics taken care off.. Unlike me I,m gonna change a couple of things hopefully there be done n fitted before me clutch cable is ready for collection , need to make a mount plate for me dash,s besides that not a great deal to do now...
Bloody knees,nightmare. My right one damaged 21years ago - motocross injury(acl rupture & meniscus tore down the middle) Unsuccessful acl repair(they weren’t very good at reconstructions then) and complete removal of meniscus. Medial compartment of knee now arthritic. Need knee replacement,but still to young. Next operation for me is called a high tibial Osteotomy. They literally saw my lower leg virtually in half and take a wedge of bone out to realign my knee so weight is on good side of knee. Only buying me time(5 to 8 yrs) until they will give me a replacement knee😏
Thought the engine was looking bit plain jane so bought one last part for it , that's it now no more moolah to be spent on this Mootah !!!! Need new silencer mounts on the exhausts there so thin one is starting to crack.... another job to be taken care of..

I empathise mate. Did both my knees and back in a total ding dong battle between me (RS100) and a Triumph Acclaim. He won. Recently the doc has told me to make a choice...continue walking or ride, but not both. Think I know what I'll do with that advice...
