RT3Mark,

Somehow, that doesn't surprise me! Every time I go riding on mine, I get offers from guys who 'had one in the day.' I even got offered $6.5K for it a few weeks ago. Not selling...

The machining is simple. I found a guy who did it for $85 a year ago or so, and did a second one for Leroy Miller (Mainjet2001) as well. When I had his done, it was for an original 1968 DT-1, and it works just fine as well. He's a HELL of a nice guy and a GIANT in the off-road motorcycling world (Dist 37, and also the father of Team Honda's Chuck Miller of Baja fame). Good lucK!

Thanks for the nice words on my RT-3. It now sports an original Bassani silenced expansion chamber and modern footpegs, so now it's what I wanted in 1973 and couldn't afford on my $288/mo A1C (E-3) pay. The biggest improvement was converting it to run a standard, 12 volt AC Halogen H4 headlight bulb. All that is needed, is to add a Baja Designs voltage regulator (about $20). I also added a smaller LED tail/brake light unit (still 6 volt DC) that's actually bright.

GOOD LUCK!

Hi sorry to barge in, but after reading this thread I bought the following part on ebay - Whoops tried to post a link, but I guess new guys can't post links or photos... drat. Anyways, it is ebay item# 171398272007

From looking at your photos, I feel like I will probably still need to get another part (the bracket for this lever, that you mounted to the clutch case after machining it)? Hope this question makes sense, thanks in advance for any advice.

Don't really know what I'm doing as far as restoring old bikes go, but my Dad had a 73 Enduro 360 when I was a kid, and let me ride it once I was old enough to kick it without breaking my foot. He has always regretted letting it go, so I found one and want to get it going and surprise him.

Dooinwheelies,

You need a second part, and that DOES bolt to the countershaft cover, from the inside. There's at LEAST one on E-bay right now, for $12.95. There are 2 watching this,and only one available. The link follows!

70 72 Yamaha R5 Clutch Actuator Housing | eBay

ACT QUICKLY! There is just one other, and it's a combination of BOTH parts for $49.99. JUMP ON IT! It's a "Buy it now" so can go at any time. Repeat, JUMP ON IT!

If you need any more help, just PM me.

Got it! Thank you, much appreciated! Will reach out again I'm sure, I expect I've really dived into something here, probably gonna take me a while to get a handle on it all, but I like to think I'm a fast learner. Thanks again

Doinwheelies,

After you get the minor (very) machining done, and the R-5 actuator in place (oh, the cable end lines up great, too!), you will have an actuator that will last as long as you have the bike, and then some. Are you considering changing over the a 12V A/C headlight, too? It's a GREAT improvement over the stock headlight, and, with a Trail Tech voltage regulator there are no more problems with blowing bulbs. Plus, you can get the auto-type H4 halogen bulbs at any Pep Boys, O'Reilly's, etc.

Best of everything!
