New project – Yamaha R5

Posted: August 29, 2015 in 1971 Yamaha R5

Picked up a very cheap project 1971 R5!  It is mostly there, and will need a very good once over, but this should be a fun build akin to the RD350 was!  Stay tuned for eventual updates on this one!

My buddy Ed used this scooter to get around before moving out to China for a while to do some teaching.  It starts but doesn’t rev up, just bogs down.  We believe there is water in the gas from what we have seen so far but here are some pics!

A friend of ours had this Honda CRF 50F that they are gifting, but it has a hard start problem after it went down and was sitting for a bit.  Sonny did a nice clean of the carb and some normal adjustments and now it runs like a dream!  Even got to test ride it myself, very fun!
