Been sitting since 92. Guy owned it since 1969, second owner.
Needs a lot of work but I’m not going to try and restore it but just clean it up and ride it.
Buy new cables, seat and foam, tires and other assorted easy to come by items.
The stinger for the exhaust he says he has in his garage but that could pose a problem.

I will probably end up selling it in the end as this guys has another bike that I am wanting even more.
Here are some pics, let me know what you guys think.

If it has two wheels and an engine, I'll ride it.

Kobuk,
I may have another clutch actuator cover--let me check. If I still have it, it's your for the want of an address, nothing more.

What is the Braided Line - going into the top of the Flywheel/Magneto Cover ?

Winterwoods, I think that is the oil supply line to the oil pump maybe?
Quick question, this bike has got nuts and bolts wire tied like on an airplane. Yamaha didn’t do that did they?

No liquids on that side.

Air vent for the Magneto, maybe???

What is the other end connected to?
Maybe to the Air Filter Cage?

Kobuk,

I'm guessing that it's just a more serious vent for the magneto housing--it's in the same place as the small stock one is. Haven't had time to check yet--doctors appointments today.
And no, Yamaha didn't safety wire their bikes, but I have seen aircraft type lines/safety wire/etc. on bike in the Barstow-Vegas, Mint 400 and similar races back in the day, so it's not too far fetched.

Man i'm short of two if not 3 actuators & covers but i'll make something using a couple of rd350 or xs650 4 start actuators i just remembered i have, [not sure where lol]. Your cover will work normal minus the third screw at the rear. YZ250A's only ever use the two screws. Mind you if it's looks you want it for then that's different.
