Part 11 - Yamaha YBR 125: PD&A of the Prototype №2

The side covers were decided to be painted in graphite, and the fence paint did an excellent job – I really liked its color and texture. This paint took quite a long time to dry, after which, using the same tapes and stencils, I applied some semblance of pinstriping and the lucky number "11":

Next, I opened the engine, replaced the clutch basket and discs, as well as the gear shift shaft bent by the previous owner:

The fork also needed servicing, replacing the factory fluid with 5W fork oil – resulting in greater softness. Incredibly, but true: the springs in the fork turned out to be of different lengths (is this normal?). I installed the fork legs from a Suzuki GN – new ones, which come without dust boots from the factory – so I equipped them with dust boots, thoroughly wiped the working surface, and put on gaiters:

And finally, the assembly itself. Everything was done in reverse order with minor improvements, lubricating the bearings, drives, and joints along the way.

In the process, a homemade engine guard was also added – bent from an already ready-made stainless steel pizza spatula, a new Indian motocross handlebar was installed, and adjustable levers with a new informative brake reservoir were adapted, the exhaust got an additional mounting point to the frame, rubber pads were added to the tank, carbon heat shields on the exhaust, a protective grille and a small windscreen on the headlight, a Yamaha badge was adapted to the Suzuki triple tree, and round side reflectors were installed.

That's all for today, friends. Ahead are tests and tuning of the prototype. And of course, it would be worth sharing the first impressions – but I'll leave all that for next time ;) I hope for your support: a subscription, a like, and a comment.
