Pinbill May possibly Own a  Yamaha Enduro?


Default Introduction Post: New to me RT3.

Hello,

I missed my RT1 and bought a running but rough RT3. I plan to get it running good, title it, and then see about how far I want to get into it cosmetically. I am going to need some help.

I just replaced the shift shaft and shift pedal. The oil pump was disconnected. I am going to need an exhaust pipe and a headlight assembly.

Can an exhaust from an RT1 fit on an RT3?

Where can I find the oil supply line for the oil injection pump?


Thanks,

Bill

The pipes will interchange.
You can order the oil lines from Yamaha.
I carry most of those parts, if you don't find what you need.
I also restore the oil pumps.

It is good to know about the exhaust fitment. Hopefully I can find a decent one.

It will be about three weeks before I can work on it again. My plan is to test the oil pump by running the bike on mix gas. I am not too sure if it works. Someone had the supply line blocked off. Who knows how long the pump was running without oil in it. Will the oil pump get destroyed when its run dry?

Thanks again,

Bill

You can destroy it by running it completely dry.
It has to have oil inside to lubricate all the moving parts.

Ok, I don't know how much it was run without oil. I have to assume its dead. I will test it though and maybe do a block off plate until I can find a good one.

To each his own - premix or run the oil pump. Hard to beat the convenience of just keeping the oil tank topped off vs trying to do calculations at the gas pump of how much oil to add (not to mention the hassle of always carrying a bottle of oil with you).

DEET does it right and saves you dollars!!

Hey guys,

Thanks a bunch for the info.

I ordered a block off plate. I have to take things bit by bit and go cheap on this bike. If things come together with the title and I can get it running good I will look into getting the pump rebuilt.

Does anyone have a headlight assembly and an exhaust pipe?

Bill

Hello,

The bike is coming along ok. I got the oil pump off, got the block off plate, and replaced the shift shaft. I broke the clutch bearing when I went to put it back together. I found the clutch ball was missing. I think that's why the bike was parked.
