Try the link below, it has a massive bike-alog, with all components and colours. Start with the English version and enter make, then model, if link is not already in the Yamaha section.
Cheers.

I have put another engine into frame but rear engine stays do not line up seeking advice on how best to resolve this.


About all you can do is to hacksaw off the original mounting tabs then weld as needed any spacer materials needed to allow the original tabs the be re-welded in the proper position. Sand, prime and paint the welded areas.

Yamaha's first single-cylinder 4-stroke motorcycle made its debut at the 21st Tokyo Motor show in 1975. As well as being the latest in a series of trail (off-road) models Yamaha had introduced at each of the Tokyo Motor Shows since the DT-1's debut in 1968, the new XT500 represented a whole new concept in trail bike design.

The Yamaha DT-1 had introduced many riders to the world of trail riding, and this ground-breaking model was later followed by the introduction of many other trail bikes from other manufacturers. The new Yamaha XT500 was a natural extension of the growing trail bike category, and although it shared the same roots as its 2-stroke brother, the DT-1, it was an entirely different breed of motorcycle. Powered by Yamaha's first 4-stroke single-cylinder engine, the new XT boasted a large capacity of 500cc, and this was at a time when the popularity of big-single machines was considered by many to be past its peak. During the mid-1970s Britain's BSA was one of the few manufacturers still offering big single machines, but even this renowned brand had not released a new big single model in a good number of years.

1976 XT 500. Recently acquired, not experienced in serivicng bikes, just cars. Is the sump and gearbox oil one and the same or 2 seperate reserviors? wish to do oil change


Shared oil for gearbox and motor.

Be carefull not to put automotive oils in her. Generally bikes have a wet clutch and any newer synthetic oils designed for clinging on for quick starts will ruin your clutch. There are some great oils for big single thumpers at good prices. The site below has exploded view diagrams for your bike along with all the part names.

Goodluck and cheers.
