Hello I’m new here I have 1971-73 rt1. Would like to know exactly which one I own. It’s a 360 enduro please help find year. I’m working on transmission it’s not shifting when I pulled it apart gears where broke. I bought new gears installed but it’s not shifting. I had 1st and 2nd working but that was it. Ride bike first and 2nd ok no 3rd. Hope I’m not doing things wrong by asking Thanks for listening and hope everyone is staying safe and healthy.

Welcome! from the UK.

Paintwork is 1973 RT3, but for confirmation go to the VIN tables in the Tech Library (see top toolbar). Engine number and VIN would have been the same when bike was new, but lots have been mixed and matched over the years.

Unless otherwise stated, the VIN tables here are for US bikes. Some bikes for the Canadian and Australasian markets had slightly later numbers.

Thanks for the fast response. I will check into that. I took a pic of it. A long time ago I spoke to a Yamaha rep. And he he wasn’t sure the year but he said rt1 b was what came up. I’m not 100 sure.

Welcome. You did well if you had it completely apart & at least have two gears. But if you only had the clutch side off due to broken gears to do with kickstart then should be an easier fix. Hope you don't need to go right inside. Gearbox on those didn't change much between "70 & "73 so look at the link for a layout of how it should be. www.babbittsonline.com/oemparts/l/yam/50...84861/1973-rt3-parts
