Yamaha 1975 RD350B
This Yamaha is a Canadian model purchased new in 1975. Exists in
essentially stock condition except for a worn autolube pump which was
removed 4 years ago. Now runs pre-mix at 35:1. This bike owns new Hagon
shocks on the rear and a braided Galfer brakeline up front. Otherwise, it
is just like it was purchased 34 years ago.
YAMAHA RD 350 vs HONDA CBR 600 F2
Video realizado por laboratorio jawa, fanaticos de los 2 tiempos... en el
video solo se unieron varias tomas de tiradas calllejeras entre un CBR600F2
y la mitica YAMAHA RD 350LC...SOLO DISFRUTEN Y SAQUEN SUS CONCLUCIONES...
Datos a considerar, que las tiradas fueron entre los 100 a 200 mts, que es
donde el Rd desarrolla todo su veneno...
El rd que observan esta lista para viajar, y con todos los fierros llevada
a 420 cc, banqueada y cuenta con 72 Hp., con cigueñal reforzado y embrague
especial, C.D.I. con auto avance, por eso podrán observar que estira tanto
las R.P.M. Y no!! olvidemos que es la abuela del Banshee. Y de puro
conocimiento se sabe que en Estados Unidos le ganan a las Hayabusa 1300cc.
