Love these triples, bought my first one only 4 years ago. The bike became "best in show" on Norwegian Triples Rally 2014 amongst more than 50 triples, and I am proud of that!
These images have been spread around, and 2 days ago I got a mail where I was asked to show the bike at Norways biggest MC-event, held every 2 years in a gigantic hall in Oslo. 100's of bikes there, and thousands of people for 3 days. It is REALLY funny getting all the attention from my first build ever.

All the old racing yamaha's had chrome cylinders (Td1,2 TR2,3 & tz) the cylinders can be over bored but the new piston must be sent in order to chrome back to the right clearance.The rings have a tendency to snag the chrome in the port edges (due to the huge ports in racing engines).Now a days most are nykisiled.
sounds like an echo in here? Helloooooooooooooooooooooo..... anyone down there? thanks for the Valuable input Autofobe.
Remember a post I did a long time ago about Bridgeports? If on stock bores, don't over bore. Send the cyl's to be plated with stock bore pistons each time and the holes will last virtually forever, on stock pistons. And it will run you nearly 900 dollars each time................ but you triple guys are Loaded!! It's been done, and works on 1st,2nd overs too

Hey Drewski, I have the refrigerator that my parents had in the house when I was born. I use it for various beverages, including a keg. Last year I bought a Kill-A-Watt meter. It does many things, including measuring killowatt-hours. I plugged the old refrigerator in to it, expecting it to be some kind of power hog. To my surprise, it used no more power than a late model refrigerator. Myth busted, I guess.
