Not a TTR but it's big brother
Permalink  
 


Hi All

I recently purchased a TT350 with the intention of riding some vintage enduros. Here in Victoria the Vintage enduro class is pre 1988, but the TT350 which was released in 86 is a flow on model that ran through to about 1999 in Australia, and all models are eligible.   Mines a 97 and has been rebuilt/restored.

Includes a fresh top end 1mm oversize piston, new timing chain and tensioner, cam bearings, new intakes manifolds ( yes x 2 twin carb!) all new suspension bearings, new fork seals and boots, new and reco plastics, new seat cover, new chain sprockets and brake pads and shoes, new chains slider and new grips.

I think its a few kilos lighter than the TTR and the engine is strong, very torqey.

I have to ride it a bit more first but I can see myself tuning up that old suspension so its better.    I have a full TTR front end to go in it and will look at the shock.

Overall its quite similar to the TTR as its the TTR's predecessor............ but no electric start. :(

P.S

Steve came very close to purchasing your 350 kit but spent my $$$ on this one instead.

But tt350.jpgs-l1600 tt front.jpgtt350 close rhs.jpgI have three Yamaha dirt bikes to ride now!!!

Looks tidy.
I like the finish on the engine fins - black with the edges skimmed.
With the suspension sorted it'll be a nice ride. Better than a DR350 I think. If only it had an electric leg...

Hi I am fixing up a TT350 and I am currently doing the front brakes, I have trouble getting the master cylinder kit,... none in stock in Australia. It will be a 3 week wait from Japan.

Do you know of any other models that fit, with the different part number to the suggested one (5VK-25807-00) $83

Or all I need is the seals that go on the piston

 try matching part numbers with other bikes....

One good thing with Yamaha... they carry the same part number for the same parts no

matter what model they are used on... just the bikes model code at the front of the

number differs ...

 

Is how I found out if Rekluse clutch's would fit the TTR250 and XT660

TTR250 and WR250/YZF250 all use the same clutch plates... same part numbers..

XT660 and WR450/YZF450 all use the same clutch plates.... same part numbers

 

….
