Restoring and Racing the YDS and TD Yamaha's

The early series of vertically split crankcase engines

I am a keen Yamaha enthusiast and restorer of the early Yamaha two-strokes twins and
I am always seeking assistance from anyone who has obsolete spare parts
or tuning information that are no longer being used.

All of my 250cc Yamaha's have a 56 mm Bore x 50 mm Stroke and the Crankcases are Vertically Split!
