YZ/IT Handlebar holder dot
« on: May 23, 2020, 03:13:02 PM »
Hi guys, im having a brain fart moment.

I removed the bars from all my old bikes.
Now i am struggling to remember which way all the old bar clamps go back on, and the tightening sequence.
They have the dot on top on one end.
Ive looked through all my manuals, and can't find any info on it.

They seem to fit either way, but i know their is a specific orientation and tightening sequence.
Any help for an old fart appreciated.

Cheers,
Alex

I'd imagine an '83 TT600 is the same as the YZ/IT.

If so, my manual says the dot goes to the front of the bike, tightening the front bolts first, then the rear ones to a torque of 23Nm.

Well done boys and thanks for the quick reply.
Amazing it is not in all the manuals, but the clamps with the dot have the same part number as just about every old school Yamaha that used 7/8 bars.
I will keep that pic for future reference.
Hopefully back on track now with some old projects.

Cheers again,
Alex
