Yamaha Other description

 Up for bid is this really nice Yamaha motorcycle. It is a DT175 Dual Sport Enduro made in 1981. As you can see from the pictures it is in really nice shape! Comes with a clear Michigan title and 2 ignition keys. One original and one remake. This is a nice old Enduro that needs and wants to be ridden. There is only two issues that I am aware of on the bike that will need to be looked at. The first is the rear tire. It seems to be in O.K. condition but does not hold air. I don't know if there is something stuck in it or the stem leaks, I really haven't looked at it closely. The other thing is the carburetor. I installed a new one and now it won't stay running at idle. Seems to run pretty well at speed but something needs adjusted and I don't have the expertise to do it. I have the original carb still and that will go with the bike if that helps any. There is just a small light scuff on one of the side covers but other than that everything looks really clean. Chrome is nice, seat is good, tank is clean, gauges are really nice yet for a bike this old. You can tell with only 4000 miles that those were easy miles as it was well cared for. I am not an expert on bikes so please as questions and I will answer them as best I can. The bike is located in Findlay, Ohio and will need to be picked up by the new owner. If you want to have it shipped this will be handled completely by the new owner. I will only agree to be here when they pick it up. A $200.00 NON-REFUNDABLE deposit will be due to my paypal account within 48 hours of the auction closing. The remainder due in cash upon pick up of the bike. I will not release the bike or title until paid for in full. There is no guarantee on the bike as it is 35 years old. If you are a collector or someone looking for a fun bike to take on and off the road then look no further. You WON'T be disappointed!

Yamaha Recalls R1 and Super Tenere for Overheating Headlights

The recall campaign affects 19,045 units of the R1 and 4,683 units of the Super Ténéré in the U.S. According to documents released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, heat generated by the headlight bulb socket may cause the terminal ends to expand, resulting in arcing between the terminal connector and bulb contact.
