1999 Yamaha xt350 tachometer drive cable delete/plug

2 posts in this topic

So I purchased a 1999 Yamaha xt350 yesterday and it came with a trail tech digital gauge. The previous owner left the Tachometer cable and it is annoying the hell out of me when I ride. 

My question is: is there a manufacturer that makes model-specific plugs so that I can delete the drive cable or will I have to just find some sort of plug that will work? If my only option is the latter option then do any of you guys have suggestions for what size plug I should be looking for?

If you are looking for a specific cap get one for a TT350. I would just undo the cable from the crankcase.

      Hi all,

      I'm interested in a good left hand rear brake set-up for the WR250R. Saw the OXbrake but as it uses a cable instead of a hydraulic cylinder so I heard it lacks power. 

      So I'm looking at the left hand rear brake kit made by Rekluse. The problem however, is the R's rear master cylinder isn't supported. So I'm thinking I'll swap the master cylinder out for one that is, and install the kit.

      So would anyone be able to tell me which of the following Yamaha rear master cylinders would be a straight swap for the R? Rekluse offers the left hand rear brake kit for all of them:

       
      ALTERNATIVELY: I have a 2012 Kawasaki ZX-6R front brake master cylinder and lever from my wreck. What if I found a way to fit that on the bar and just ran a braided line straight to the rear brake caliper and did away with the rear brake pedal completely? Sounds crazy but could it work?

      Thanks heaps in advance!

      Help! I recently replaced the battery after this winter and went for a ride, got stuck in a rut, tipped the bike and broke the clutch lever and partially broke the cable 
      But before this, the bike wouldn't start in Neutral unless the clutch was pulled in and the choke was all the way out. 
      After the crash I was able push start the bike and limp it home.
      Replaced the lever and cable and now it will not start at all. In nuetral with or without the clutch pulled in. 
      The only way to start it is to push start.
      any ideas here?

      Hey all,
      I've been having problems with my throttle position sensor on my Yamaha WR450F 2005. When the sensor is plugged in the bike runs very lumpy on constant throttle and is nearly un-ride-able. 
       
      In the manual, and all over the internet, there are values of which the TPS must be set at and what resistance it should have.
       
      These are :
      4-6 ohms resistance
      0.58 - 0.78 volts
       
      My TPS is set perfectly within these values, being 4.9ohms and 0.72 volts. 
       
      This indicates to me that my TPS is fine and there is no point buying another? But as soon as i unplug the sensor it does run NEARLY perfect, still very very slightly lumpy but hardly noticeable.
       
      Has anyone else had correct readings on their TPS but still isn't working? any help? I don't want to spend £300 on a sensor then it not actually be the problem?
       
      Thanks

      Hello all,
      I recently picked up a 1978 Yamaha IT175 off of Craigslist that needed a ring. Instead of doing just the ring, I have ordered a new piston and ring and am going to replace both. 
      I have never worked on a 2 stroke this old before and have never done a top end on any bike before, so I was wondering if anyone could put me in the direction of an instruction sheet for the top end on this bike as well as some tip and tricks for general stuff. Also, if anyone has first hand experience with a similar bike, that would be awesome!
      Thank you all in advance!
