Just a heads up for 1997 through 1999 the Regulator/Rectifier was modified by Yamaha to include cooling fins for 750 and 1100 Virago's

Trust me, you will not like the price of this new design!!

$334.65 USD.

WOW that new R/R design is expensive. I buy entire motorcycles for less than that. Lol. These little gems are my current winter restoration project. It's a pair of 1972 Yamaha JT mini enduros which happen to be the very first real motorcycle I ever bought brand new in 72. Can't wait to get this pair done. Yeah that's me 46 years ago! Been hooked on two wheelers ever since.

Wow Bill,
That's you at 13 in the bottom picture?!!

Do these 2 JT's bring the bike count up to 13 now to match your age of 13, 46 years back?

Yeah that was me at 13, back when any vacant lot was open to riding "trail bikes". Nobody worried about lawsuits. I think the count is at an even dozen.

Some people think there's a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. I say there's a pack of bikes from the 70's!
