« on: Nov 27, 2013, 22:31:16 »
Just finished this one. A 1973 TX750 Yamaha. Total ground up restoration. Mods include, shortened front and rear fenders, custom made exhaust pipes, stainless steel spokes. All other parts & pieces either rebuilt, rechromed, repainted, polished or zinc plated.

Nice one!  There's actually one just like yours local for sale.

I've been thinking of picking it up but I've read that the '73s had a lot of issues with that omni balancer deal.  Was there ever a fix for that?  Any preventative/corrective measures?

That looks like a good one, well kept, grab it.
The fix is a deeper oil sump to keep the rotating counterbalancer out of the oil. That part is still quite readily available.
