1985 Yamaha MJ50 Towny
« on: October 10, 2017, 07:16:26 AM »
This is my new acquisition. It only needed a new plug, a new battery and a carburetor cleanup. Everything works except of the speedo as the gear in the front wheel is broke, very common problem for Towny and QT50 I believe.

It has 120psi compression so I believe the engine is a bit tired. With the original 70 main jet the bike runs too rich, but it is driveable. I ordered a 60cc big bore kit and then I will re-jet it for more powar!

Can't wait to put a milk crate on that back rack.

With you clothes on, it would be hard to have more fun than driving this thing downtown!
