Yamaha Other description

Up for grabs is a beautifully restored 1972 Yamaha DT2-MX, The 1972 DT2MX was the first Yamaha model designed strictly for the motocross market. The DT2MX came standard with reed valve induction, a CDI ignition with button-mag and Yamaha’s Autolube system, which automatically mixed oil with the gas. Most serious racers removed the Autolube system and ran pre-mix as a safety measure. This bike is currently set up to run as premix only for safety measures. The restoration was a full frame up restoration, the frame was powder coated and the motor was rebuilt by a local shop that goes by the name of Halls Precision Machinework.  During the restoration process many NOS parts were installed if they were OEM Yamaha the factory parts are restored to new condition and replaced on the bike. The bike also has brand-new tires and a professional  Basecoat clearcoat automotive paint that was $1100 alone. Motor and engine numbers are matching DT1F- 189359 Please keep in mind the bike is been fully restored to perfection so it's very hard to go into little detail on how beautiful the bike is other than the fact that it looks like it rolled off the showroom floor. Since the restoration the bike is spent most all of its life on display in my man cave.  The bike does come with a Billis sale only. There is no option on the eBay listing for bill of sale. Also noted the bike is for sale locally and I do reserve the right to cancel my auction at any given time. Please don't hesitate to ask any questions.  I encourage all bidders to feel free to send a mechanic on their behalf or come down themselves to view the bike in person.I can also email more images upon request thank you and happy bidding

New Delhi Auto Expo 2012 – Motorcycle Manufacturers Draw Battle Lines for World’s Second Largest Market

Mon, 09 Jan 2012 00:00:00 -0800

In past years, the biennial Auto Expo in India slipped under the radar while the industry was focused more on shows such as EICMA in Italy and Intermot in Germany. But with India’s middle class starting to flex its financial muscle while other markets continue to struggle, the New Delhi show is becoming much more prominent, with major OEMs positioning themselves to claim a piece of the India’s 13 million vehicles-a-year market. We’ve already looked at India-produced Royal Enfield’s new Thunderbird 500 and Hero Moto’s hybrid scooter concept which debuted at the Auto Expo, and today we’ll look at what the major international OEMs presented.

Magneti Marelli to Supply Electronics System to MotoGP Teams

Wed, 26 Sep 2012 00:00:00 -0700

It’s no secret that promoter Dorna Motorsports has been trying to push a standardized electronics control unit for teams in the MotoGP World Championship. The lack of a top-tier electronics package has been one of the biggest challenges faced by MotoGP’s claiming rule teams, and a spec ECU would narrow the gap between the CRT bikes and the factory prototypes. The manufacturers competing in the series, Honda, Ducati and Yamaha, understandably are resistant to the idea considering the effort they’ve put in to develop their electronics systems.

My Cadburys Boost YZF 750 comes back to life.

Sat, 01 Sep 2012 00:00:00 -0700

After winning my 3rd BSB title in 1998, as an end of season bonus, Yamaha UK kindly handed over my beloved Cadburys Boost YZF 750. There were three of these ex factory bikes in Rob Mac’s team; one went to me, the big man still has one, and the third was sold for a sum that was never disclosed. I had three cracking years on this special machine battling against team mates Whitham, Walker and Hislop and breaking most lap records along the way. The hard charging Bayliss, Reynolds and Rymer were also thrown into the mix on occasions just to make life even more interesting.
