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.

What it's like to ride a '73 Yamaha RD350
Here's a quick loop on my RD. It's a blast to ride. I should be scooting
around on it quite a bit next spring.
My long term RD project is getting there. It's still gurggly and a bit
sloppy on the pilot circuit. Going to try a leaner pilot next.
The gauges, headlight, and headlight brakets were from
Rearsets: hard to find Moto Carreras
Clutch is an MSR perch and lever from a YZ250
Front brake MC is from an R6
Grips, bars and everything else from http://hvccycle.com/

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.
