A page to follow the tear down and build up of my 1975 RD350

男主总想弄死他

Custom Gussets




Replaced the seat latch bracket with a smooth plate.  



Replaced the reflector mounts with some healthy gussets.

Now I just need to remember how to TIG weld.

Overboard 2.0

Not gonna need this anymore....








I guess I didn't take a "final" picture of this, but it turned out clean and smooth.  Finally getting the hang of this, but it still takes about three times as long as I think it should.

Overboard

Getting a little out of control with the sawzall, grinder and file.

I decided to replace these huge ugly reflector mount/gussets with some new 1/8" steel ones that are smaller and cleaner.  No pics of those yet.






Haste

I got a little anxious and made some mistakes.

Don't get too close to the frame with the sawzall when cutting out unwanted tabs.

You just make more work for yourself later.

Nothing that a little welding/bondo can't fix, but it still shouldn't have happened.  I was more careful on the next one.

Coil Mount

Ditched this too.  More on this later.






Grinding and Welding

I needed to grind down a big chunk of the rear frame to get the fiberglass seat to sit how I wanted it to.  I re-welded the seam after I ground it off.  It should work.






Halfway through grinding.



Gap to be welded.



After welding in the gap and re-grinding.  I'll be welding some tabs on here for the fiberglass pan.

Steering Lock

Deleted.




Filled it with some MIG welds.



That is smoother than it looks.  Might have to put some bondo in there, but it should clean up nicely.

Factory Welds

Cripes.

Five Twenty

Next level power transfer.


I went from a 530 chain (stock) to a 520 chain (lighter).

DIDs Pro Street VX2 should do the trick.

New custom 520 sprockets front and rear too.



Straight ill with the sawzall

 Spent some time with an angle grinder, die grinder, sawzall, and a few flat files to delete the center stand mounts.  So fresh and so clean.



Center stand mounts......so 1970's.



Before.  




After some much needed sawzall love..




One down.



One to go...


You get the idea.


Action shot!!!





Flat files rule.


Almost there.


Just the way Yamaha intended.
