Question about Yamaha XT 125 X Motorcycles
I have just finished restoring a 1981 model XT250.
The best advice I can offer is to take your digital camera and record as much info as you can about the way all the cables are fed through the bike also pay close attention to the way the wiring harness lays.
You will find all kinds of diagrams but photos are much more reliable for me.Photograph every thing even if it seems obscure it will help!!
Find heaps of containers for all the bolts bearings and odds and ends.Keep a roll off masking tape close buy and write info ontO the tape and attach it to the containers or the parts.
This will help when you try to screw the mirrors on and find out that one is a left hand thread.
When dismantling the wheels put the axle back through the wheel and all the components and put that nut back on secure.
Its little things like keeping the bolts in there right place that will help when reassembling.
If you can screw the bolt back into its original hole after removing a component do so .
The most used tool I can recommend would be a decent wire wheel on a bench grinder(a grinder that is bolted to the bench)
You can bring almost any bolt that looks like rusted **** back to new and it will take off paint and scale no trouble.
Very fine steel wool for your chrome .
Get a manual .The digital ones are ok up to a point but you should buy one form Clymer
hope this helps.
