Default 77' DT 100 restoration

     

I'm new to this forum and was told by my neighbor this is THE site to look in. I receintly found a DT 100 in an old barn while I was cleaning it out for a friends family. I grew up riding one of these and had to get it for my son who is about the same age I was when I started riding a DT. The thing looked like it was mulching in the back corner for the last 25 years. It's actually pretty clean for a 30+ year old bike. Tires hold air and the seat is still intact. I cleaned the fuel system and replaced the battery and spark plug.
I got it running yesterday but still need to get the electricals sorted out. I disconnected the ignition switch and it runs now but none of the other electrical things work.
Is there any place to find a wiring diagram for this? I guess I need to find a working ignition switch too. Are parts still available for this anywhere?
Any help would be appreciated.
Larry

i bought a junker '73 at-1 125 a few years ago and have been restoring it. i found everything that i needed, including a service manual, on ebay. it's a long process that way and some items can get a little pricey but so far everything has been satisfactory. i've got it about 85% complete.

my manual has wiring diagrams. it covers the years 71-73 and includes the LT 100. the wiring should be similar, if not identical to yours. i can scan it and email it to you if you want.

Default Thanks!

I checked out ebay and found some things that will help. Now all I have to do is win some auctions...

Try the Yamaha website. It has parts diagrams of all their bikes back to the 1960's. You should be able to piece together a wiring diagram from that site.

For OEM parts, try www.yamatopdog.com They are probably the best site for original Yamaha parts.

Satch, you will never believe this but we share something close in common . . . A 1976 DT175 was my very first bike! I was so short that I had to start it while it rested on the kickstand. I had to develop some good riding habits early on mind you--I couldn't just dab indiscriminately, and the ultimate penalty was having a bike bigger than me lying on its side.
