Its a 1973 yamaha CT1 175 There is no list for it


I haven't worked on that bike in 30 years, but as I recall, the black wire goes to the points. The coil grounds via the mounting bolts.

When 1973 enduro is in higher gear the bike revs


Yes, it does sound like a clutch, but make sure you have a little free play in the clutch lever. Age will make the clutch plates deteriorate.
You need to remove the right side engine cover to get at it. Take your time and note where all of the pieces are. Pre-soak the new clutch plates (The ones with fiber on them) in oil before you install them.

Backfire thru carb and exaust.. points and timing problem


Okay, I will tackle a tune up on a 36 year old Yamaha. Warning: I am 59 and haven't touched that bike since I was 23 and a mechanic at Lynns Yamaha in D.M. Iowa. Your bike has CV carbs and I know very little on the carbs.

First let me suggest you get a service manual. Go to www.repairmanuals.com and input " 1973 Yamaha 650 ". You can choose a Clymer or a Haynes manual. I don't care for Clymer and have never used a Haynes. The Haynes is $23.77 which is really a pretty good price considering not many of the manuals still exist.
Also, for future reference, go to the following site where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. Parts can be ordered if the price is shown > no price = the part is not available.
http://www.babbittsonline.com/pages/parts/viewbybrand/1/Yamaha.aspx

Also Google " motorcycle salvage yamaha " and Google " vintage yamaha motorcycle parts ".

Start with new NGK B8ES spark plugs. New points can be gotten at the Babbitts site. Set the points at .015 max opening. Hook a timing light up to the left cylinder. Remove the left case cover to expose the flywheel. Start the bike and point the light at the static reference mark on the casing. IF I RECALL CORRECTLY, rotate the base plate that the points are mounted on to adjust the timing. The timing should advance when the engine is reved up. If it doesn't, the spark advancer needs service. Now put the light on the right cylinder. IF I RECALL CORRECTLY, changing the right cylinder point gap is the only way to set the timing for that cylinder.

I hope this helps. Please rate my extra long answer. Thanks.

Timeing a yamaha 175 enduro


Without the year of the bike I am hampered. Lets assume it is an older bike and has a set of ignition points and not a CDI model.
.
Pull the cover off the shifter side of the engine. Remove the spark plug then turn the flywheel so you can see the points. Oil on them? Dirt, or rust? Next check the main bearing. Do not rotate the flywheel but instead hold the flywheel firmly and lift it up and down, left and right. Was there any movement or was the flywheel rock solid?
.
I am willing to bet that the points were dirty and there was a lot of play in the crank bearings. If so, you will need new crank bearings and seals plus new points and condenser. The engine needs to tear down into about 75 parts in order to replace the bearings. The job requires some special tools to remove the flywheel and clutch, plus a crankcase separator the split the gearbox.
.
This is not a job for the beginner. I suggest you have the shop do the work and also that you spring for 3 more bearings and seals plus a fresh cylinder bore, new piston and rings and a new spark plug. You now have a brand new engine that should run well and last for many years. Please rate this solution. Thanks
