1982 Yamaha XT550 

 

In house hand crafted Aluminium Tank, mudgaurds, side panels and screen.

 

Total engine rebuild all new bearlings and seals as well as a head port and polish. 

 

The bike was going to be a restoration so it has lots of original Yamaha engine parts. The tyres are Metzeler Enduro. KnN air filter. Custom exhaust. Flush mounted indicators, tail light and number plate light. Wheels have stainless spokes and the rims and hubs have been vapour blasted, plus new wheel bearings. Front wheel hub is from a TT600 laced onto the XT550 rim. New head bearings, powdercoated the frame and rear swing arm. Aluminium handle bars by Twenty. YSS rear shock. The big single 550cc thumper is all torque and along with the twin port duel carb has a two stage power delivery, you can feel in the throttle where the second stage starts and it’s easy to stay below it as the torque will pull you along up to 70mph nicely, but if you need to pass or feel like a hooligan the second stage is right there and will put the biggest smile on your face as it dumps twice as much fuel into the engine and the front wheel comes up, which I have to say is best done in a straight line, then the screen really makes crusing along less taxing and tucking in and peeking over helps cut up the motorway.
