XS650: TX750 Service and Parts News   2 comments

For those of you who have asked for the Bulletins relating to the TX750 twin. Or as a pdf –  TX750 Service-Parts News.

Parts list.

Intersting thread at ADVRider

73 TX750 twin cylinder

 

I like these bikes. Had a chequered history. Responsible for the first major motorcycle recall in Europe. Unfortunately motorcycle specific oils weren’t then available. Yamaha simply got too far ahead of itself. Later TX750’s had enlarged sumps, adjustable balancer chains, oil coolers, different gaskets, modified chain adjusters and many other smaller modifications.

These were ground-breakers:

  • Omni-Phase balancer system.
  • Positive Crankcase Ventilation system with fumes  re-directed to the airfilter box.
  • Lead-free petrol compatible valve seats.
  • Twin rear lights.
  • Light-alloy wheel rims.
  • Twin front disc brake.

2 were made over by Porsche. For the 73 racing season. Ran twice. Bol d’Or 24, Le Mans. Thruxton 500, UK. Neither completed the Bol d’Or. Apparently the Porsche engines vibrated worse than the wifes stand-by. Yamaha prepared engines were quickly mounted. One was dropped in the rain. Cam chain sucked a kumara on the other. Compression and race-cam valve lift.  6th at Thruxton.
