Thanks for having me
Hey All, just a quick hello and look forward to being part of the forum.
recently picked up this 91 YFM250B from a farm in Victoria, melbourne Australia for $650. It had a dead battery but i did get a video of it running before i brought it. Problem was that it had a severe backfire through the carb.
Anyways, the last 3 weeks ive been spending hours a day getting it back to running perfectly.
here's what I've had to fix so far;
- Couldnt get the timing marks to line up, stretched chain!
- someone had been into the carb in the past becuase the float was upside down, aso was leaking fuel quite badly
- airbox was missing the cage, so i brought a complete K&N unit
- Swingarm bearings were destroyed!!! What a sage to get the swingarm bolts out!!!! all cleaned up and ready for installation
- currently working on the front end becuase there is a bit of play in the bearings
just waiting on some parts from yamaha and ill be able to fire it up and see if all is working well.
are the side by sides that rural king sell any good they look good
Yamaha Australia has announced it will discontinue selling Utility ATVs due to new Australian government legislation that requires the mandatory fitment of so-called Operator Protective Devices (OPDs), YMA will not sell utility ATVs after the government compliance deadline of 11 October 2021.
“The decision to make the fitment of OPDs compulsory is disappointing. The ruling has forced us to withdraw utility ATVs from the Australian market because as a manufacturer we are not willing to gamble with our customers lives by bolting untested devices onto our specifically engineered and designed ATVs,” explains YMA Director Brad Ryan.
As the market leader in this segment, Yamaha recognises that utility ATVs are an important part of farm operations and will comply with stage one of the new consumer legislation. This includes testing and the fitment of warning labels by Oct 2020. This will ensure that Yamaha ATVs remain available until October 2021.
After this date customers will not be able to purchase a new Yamaha utility ATV in Australia – but sport and youth models will continue to be available. This is because new sport and fun ATVs do not need to be fitted with OPDs. In addition, side-by-side vehicles (SSVs) are not affected by this ruling, so YMA will support our utility ATV dealers and ease the transition from ATV to AG bike and SSV business.
“Fortunately, our utility ATV customers can transition to our equally capable lineup of AG bikes and expanding SSV range,” adds YMA Director Brad Ryan.
Customer safety has always been our priority. YMA has provided market leading rider training and promoted proven safety methods. YMA also helped develop the Shark ATV helmet which is the only fully certified farm safe ATV helmet available. YMA feels so strongly about customer safety that purchasers of new Yamaha utility vehicles will receive a free Shark farm safe helmet valued at $250 while stocks last.
YMA is also fully committed to customer care via a national dealer network that will continue to service ATVs and with the supply of parts and accessories into the future.
Any ppl from Perth give advice on the best places to ride in WA.
Beach with good fishing which allows camping would be awesome.
But am open to all ideas.
Thanks in advance
hey all gotta question for someone in the know. Wife and I are moving to Melbourne in 2019. (ya a bit off) but im doing research as to bringing things with me and what the cost is vs buy in melbourne. I am keen to pick up a yxz1000 possibly this year and I have a crf but will be upgrading to a plated bike wr or ktm in the summer. is it worth bringing them with me or will the cost in duties and tax negate the value of buying in the US?
are they that much more expensive in melbourne ?
