After reading about the shiny new R1M on the forum I thought I’d introduce my new Yam, my 1977 RS100! It’s actually not that new to me, bought it back in February with the intention to use it as a little town runaround and to commute on however the lockdown has ruined that as my application for the V5 is totally stuck in the ether. Previous owner went through a bit of a flat tracker / cafe racer conversion with it but there were a few wee jobs that needed finishing so I’ve been leisurely working through them. Biggest job was re-wiring the bike and chopping out all the generic, black, bits of wire that had been used previously. All I have left to do is sort out a dodgy connection on the rear light, find some tank badges and reinstate the oil tank and the autolube system. Or so I thought... Decided to rally it round the block a few times tonight as I’ve been waiting sooooo long to ride it and it was great, pulled well (for a slow thing) and had a decent top end zing and then it just cut out. Pushed it home, checked fuel (loads) and spark (big one that gave me a crack) but it wouldn’t start. Did a few odd jobs around the house and came back to it, started first time, strange. Threw my gear on and went for another lap, same shit again, accelerating hard, slowed for a junction, went to accelerate again and it cut out. No start, pushed it home, started. Revved it and it cuts out. So that’s where we’re up to, sorry for the state of the garage, it’s not always like this. Any feedback welcomed, this is my first 2-stroke and it’s a learning curve.
