1970 DT1 250 grommet color was created by SKYDANCER46

Hi All,

Been awhile since I payed a visit to the forum. Had no Yamaha's for a while now. Just recently retired early ( you can say) and picked me up 2 nice original DT1 250's. 1970 and 1971. Question i have is what determine what color grommet's came on the 1970 DT1? I didn't think they had white on the 1970 bikes but apparently they did. I am talking about part # 90480-14023-00. there used all over these bikes. front fenders, rear tail light, oil tank, etc etc. I have seen white and black on bikes in pictures. Was there a change mid year or something? Anyone have a original 1970 DT1and what does yours have? thanks 

Once pictures can be posted i will post some.

Hey Rob,
Darn good you are chiming in again Brother.
This has always been my killer question too. but...
It's too easy to check out the Partzilla schematics and do the research on the part numbers and whereabouts.

Can't tell you how many times  I did this for those darn  175's

I too, would like to know that history on the white vs black grommet and when  !?!

( P.S. - You know Motodad24 on Ebay sells the both colors also. So you can change them weekly if you wanted too. )

Good to hear from you. I'm enjoying that RT3 you restored, I believe that is the engine in your avatar.

Is there only one site from down under that has the 360 muffler heat guard badge? My bike looks a bit “naked” without it… mines busted and the posts are missing…

Hi Rick,

Thankyou. I kind of figured it might be one of those question that can not be answered with certain. I thought they were only used on the 1968 DT1 but i see that's not the case. The bike i have has some in places and black in other locations. Yes i am aware some could have been replaced but all (white & black) have the same amount of slight weathering to them. none look better then the others.

Thanks for the info on motodad24. I've been out of this for awhile now. other things in life that had priorities but now retired and wanted a badge bike for retirement. I always liked the 68-71 DT1's.
