Need help and parts Yamaha YL1

Would appreciate any sort of contribution in putting her back on road.

Itís a 1968 Yamaha YL1

tons of childhood memories associated with it. Donít know anything about 2 strokes. Engine turns over with kick, seems complete except missing Tail light lens and one nut for head pipe.

Speed and sport here in the States has a significant amount of NOS parts.


As well as Consolidated Motor Spares


And Yambits in the UK


I have yet to find a YL1 manual online but the HS1 is essentially the same engine with 1 more gear and 10 less ccís.


Good luck!

Just wondering how you are making out with finding parts for your bike?  I have just started my own YL1 project for my daughter and am having isses finding replacement rubber parts for the insert gromits on the frame and also the Y peice that goes from the air filter to the carbs.  Any help would be great.
