Re: My stable

Thats a beautiful little bike,,, glad you get the opportunity to keep it alive and well,,, I love the older Yamaha enduros as when I was a kid with a paper route I saved up and bought my first bike, a brand new 77 DT100,,, been soft on those kinds of bike ever since :D

Re: 1981/83 XV750 Flywheel/rotor interchange

Good morning, just found an 84 1000 parts bike, complete less a few covers, guy also has an extra 750 engine with a serial number only a few off my bikes engine so may have lucked out. Woohoo. Regardless I just may be able to resurrect a couple of these sweet old girls. Again thanks so much for all ...

Yes it seems so,, I have been a mechanic for 35 years, built lots of bikes in the past but my first go at a virago. I may end up with a newer engine swap, but first want to explore the early engine. Hard to find parts locally but if I can find an 84 to 91ish flywheel/rotor I may just give it a whirl...

Re: 1981/83 XV750 Flywheel/rotor interchange

Thanks for the starter info,,, as far as flywheel/rotor interchange, any idea who may have such info. I tried yamaha and didnt see the part number superceded and kinda short on ideas as to how I could find out short of trying to get a newer 750/920 rotor and fitting it :( :(

1981/83 XV750 Flywheel/rotor interchange

Hiya, I recently picked up an 81 and an 83 750 viragos but the flywheel/rotors and starters are missing. Seems the original parts are no longer available,,,, any idea what if any of the newer 750 parts will work?
