Lol its been a long time coming to make my way over to the jap threads...even tho the TTR's are china's with high quality control! :p
so well its abit low on comp..... ie: blows smoke.... and when i put it under load it dies
also it needs a tank and the plastics to go with it..
so what does little loco have in store for it well.... needs a top end rebuild... needs the tank and plastics and a rear shock... maybe +1 inch fork legs and a big bar kit... then i'd say thats about it! Stocka? :p










this is the shock with me pressing on it (not my full weight)

can anyone find me a set of rings and a piston.... maybe valve seals.... oem is not cheap!

That's a nice little project!
$50 US plus post for a standard Piston and rings
2008 TTR50E - TTR50EX Yamaha Motorcycle CRANKSHAFT PISTON Diagram and Parts
the under load dying would be dirty carby/jets etc
don't forget the GYTR kickstart conversion like Shearer did too

p.s. did that 160 case and rockers arrive yesterday ? i sent it express/guaranteed next day delivery on thursday arvo 3.00 pm

lol! hahahah well it didnt hurt to ask! i just told them how it is, Ie: "sorry thats too much im going to have to buy online as I'm on a budget" lol probably thought i was a piece of work, but at the end of the day they turned me down several times for work experience, even tho i worked with the previous owner and got offered a school based apprenticeship for working there one week, but yet the new bloke wont let me have a good go, not bragging :p hahahaha

I wouldn't trust them with saying they could do it cheaper lol.
$80 fork seal turned into $280 and linkage bearing could of brought a whole pro circuit system.

I found out that can only buy genuine pistons and rings for ttr50. Rang around few place's and they all say the same thing! can buy piston n rings for pw50 two storke 50, or ttr90 and ttr110 just no ttr50. :( So have to buy yamaha parts, just makes it more $$$
