Late 750's also got rid of that thing i think.
I hope that started with the XS750SE which is the base for my 896! ::)
Obviously as Yamaha eliminated the cams in later models it is not needed. Wondering if I could replace the spring with a nylon sleeve to lock the cams engaged??

I would prefer a steel sleeve. Preferably hardened to match the output shaft.

Distraction time of the year.
Snapper are back in the bay!! This one was about 80cm and 8kg - he went back to breed  ;D
We kept 2 @ 60cm and 4kg plus another 3 at around 38cm and 1kg which was enough for a good feed.
Did manage to fix the brakes today, and planning to get the tank painted after work this week.

Not totally distracted by fishing.
The tank painting has come along, not totally satisfied, but it is looking reasonable.
I have followed the same theme, but the details are different. I have used a red metallic where the original was a solid red. I have used a gold pinstripe where Yamaha had a red and a red/brown. The logo is genuine Yamaha but was different to the original tank I had in that the original had a black perimeter around the letters and the logo I bought was just solid white.
Looks great from about 2m, certainly I have learnt a lot from this attempt. The next tank will be a lot better and easier.

Looks great, I love the gold accent on your version.

Battery location has been troubling me.  :-\
Came up with a solution today, after going fishing and only catching 1 keeper.
Made up a dummy battery out of cardboard and then used that to find a suitable location.
Battery and solenoid need to be assembled/connected before the bracket is mounted to a plate I welded to the lower cross brace. It is certainly down and out of the way! ;D

Nice one man.  Yepp, that is where I ended up placing the battery on the XS I built as well.  Puts it almost completely out of sight.

Amazing man!I might steal your idea on my new 750 project :-) does the battery clear the main stand?
