Yamaha / Re: 1978 YZ80E Rebuild
« Last post by alexbrown64 on July 12, 2018, 11:25:03 PM »
Groan......

Just received the 14" chrome rim from Partzilla.  Fantastic quality rim and would be perfect for the rebuild.. but has D.I.D. Made In Indonesia stamped on the side.  The YZ rims were Takasago and made in japan and had it stamped on the top near the nipples.  Both my YZ80's have original rims, so its off to the chrome platers at great expense..

DG had a lot of hop up parts for these bikes back in the day. Rocketfrog has an E with some great DG parts and i hope this brochure give inspiration for a build..



Ive just about got all my parts now.  Nearly everything except plastics.  Still a lot of straightening, cleaning, cutting, heating, grinding, molding, sanding, blasting, powdercoating, zinc coating, 2k painting etc.. to go but i am on track.  Should be a year or so and hopefully have an E i can sit back and look at and remember when i was 13...

Cheers,

I have made some Tit discs for go kart dudes . Was going to make some for my own chrome trolleys , but never got around to that anymore . It does save a lot of weight , especially on a big disc , performance is OK . However you can not use sintred pads .

Keep in mind that  the word "Alloy" is a term that means a mixture of elements, we all commonly refer to Aluminium alloy as 'alloy' so dont confuse it with titanium alloy which is also mixed with other elements for best effect.

Coating the alluminium would make sense

Thanks to those people that have sent the UVP through.

Sunday is the last day the club will be able to assist with riders obtaining their UVP.
