Yamaha RT1 Clutch actuator
« on: February 16, 2020, 10:08:42 PM »
Hi Race fans, I'm looking for a clutch actuator for my RT1 pre 70 race bike, last piece of the puzzle. If anyone has one they don't need shoot me a message.
Cheers, Rod.

Wow they're scarce 'as'. I adapted an RD350 one into my cover. They're 4 start & steel with a nylon outer so bore the alloy out & insert the better one. I made a cock up & fitted mine from outside in & retained by the little cover [wrong but works for last 30 years] should be fitted from inside out of course so it's pushing & retained. Maybe i [thought] i had a clearance issue--too long ago. There other new ones being made too, just google away or get into the forum i get lost in as was plenty about that. Scroll down to the bottom of the page link & someones showing you how to do [what i shoulda done lol]. I go by RT325 on there & that's another story [of short stroking a 360], or suppose i could be RT280 due to long stroking a 250--Umm it all gets worse from there!!.

Thanks OTH for the reply, yes the internet has a few posts showing how to mod parts from other Yamaha models, currently trying to get my hands on a bronze worm gear to replace the failed plastic job. Hopefully that will come off for me or I will have to get the tools out.
