Next project: 1986 Yamaha TT350

Recommended Posts

I traded a used Paslode nail gun this beauty.  It will fire and make noise with a shot of starting fluid, but won't stay running.  Where to begin.........

What does this have to do with Dual Sport Adventure riding?

Potential, many of us have been there.

It's not street legal

It's not wide ratio

It's not long distance.

 

Soooooo....

Soooo....

You live in Kali, maybe different rules apply. AZ. $100 to legality.

Some people have thicker wallets, maybe different rules apply.

This is back East, maybe different rules apply.

Not looking to get into a pissing contest, let a guy pursue his project. Or is riding just for rich guys?

Op, I can't tell you where to begin, but I've taken on worse. Just try to figure out where you're at before you spend much of anything. Start out with what you need to run, then run legally, then extras if you figure they're worth it.

Now that you mention it, nothing.  My mistake for posting in the wrong forum.  Thanks for the polite yet productive post.

Can somebody give me, then, the "official" explanation of dual-sport/adventure?

I dual sported a 1986 TT350 and also owned a 1985 XT350. The only problem with the TT was low gearing. The suspension was far better than the XT. Conversion to street legal in Ohio is easy.

Not sure there is one and the line is blurred. I consider DS on and off road including singletrack. Adventure to me is paved and dirt roads, overnight camping, multi day trips. DS usually 650cc and under. Adventure usually 650cc and over. Just one riders opinion, and not official.

Well many of us here believe the biggest problem with this site is blending DS with adventure.

It really has always caused issues.

The 350 could make a vintage DS machine and after all we enjoy those who really get out there and what we do it on is really no issue. As long as we do it!

Enjoy!

The OP was discussing a non-running non-DS non-Adventure bike...

 

Help to get that bike running is already available in a couple of other forums.

 

No mention was made of DS or Adventure plans or rides or conversions.

 

It has nothing to do with the model of the bike.

 

I don't see the confusion.
