Hello Everyone, I have a XT500D that I purchased in 1978/9 from a Yamaha dealership after the first owner decided the bike was "too much" for him. I rode it very little (has only about 3,400 miles) and has sat in storage for the last 13 years. It ran when it was put up - I hope it won't take to much to get it going. Any advice? I didn't realize the thumpers had such a strong following. It was a great bike, and now that I go camping more, seems like a good trail choice. Thanks for the feedback!
