    LED Headlight Bulb with Fan for RD’s – H4 type, Compact, fits in the RD headlight bucket

    Original price was: $52.50.Current price is: $48.50.
    LED Headlight Bulb with Fan for RD's. There's not much clearance in the RD headlight buckets due to all the wires and makes fitting most LED ligths with fans difficult. And without the fan you can't get very bright lights. This compact H4 LED bulb and fan assembly fits nicely in the bucket and at 3,800 lumens is very bright. Note: This bulb is a replaceable H4 type. The original RD headlight was a sealed beam H4 type and the bulb was not replaceable. This bulb is primarly inteneded for use with an aftermarket headlight lens/bulb assembly.

  • Yamaha RD Shift Shaft Upgrade Kit - Includes: (This is the Original UK made kit, not the Chinese copy) - New CNC 6082 Billet Housing / PB1 Bronze Bushing - O-ring Seal Nitrile - Shift Shaft Seal - Acetal Shaft Sleeve - Easy to install, no mods required Though they have great transmissions, Yamaha 2 stroke twins aren't known as the best shifting bikes, and as they age shifting becomes even worse. The engine case opening for the shift shaft wears away causing the seal to fail, resulting in a constant oil leak, sloppy shifting, difficulty finding neutral, and missed shifts. Replacing the seal is just a temporary fix until it quickly fails again. This kit helps eliminate those issues. Economy Cycle tested for fitment/performance, highly recommended. You'll notice a difference in shfiting right away as the shaft/lever have much stronger support from the new bushing. The kit helps reduce miss shifts and revving to the moon, as well as making it a bit easier to find neutral. So sure, the kit eliminates the annoying oil leak with double sealing (by the O-ring and shaft seal), but to us as RD performance enthusiasts, this is a performance improvement allowing for precise and quick shifting. Great for street or race applications. Easy to install.
  • We designed these new kits with RD enthusiasts in mind and includes the following specs / features
    • Works with the engine in the frame (most dial gauges are too large and won't fit in the RD due to the frame rails sitting just above the heads)
    • Metric Gauge - no need to convert from SAE and one less chance to make a mistake when converting
    • Increments:
      • 10mm stroke 1/100mm graduation
      • Big hand sweeps 1 mm
      • Smal hand in .10 mm increments
    • 10, 12, & 14mm adapters makes this kit suitable for most 2 strokes
    • 2 Extensions
  • Ultra Sonic Carburetor Cleaning - Ultra Sonic cleaning is the most effective way to have your carbs cleaned. The carb bodies are immersed in a non-corrosive heated solution and treated with 40KHz sound pressure waves that clean 100% of all inner and outer surfaces and carb passages. This cleaning far exceeds normal carb cleaning with carb cleaner and wires which simply can't remove all the debris and residue as effectively an Ultra Sonic washer can becuase it cleans 100% of all surfaces. An ultrasonic cleaner works by the energy released from the collapse of millions of microscopic cavitations near the dirty surface. The bubbles made by cavitation collapse forming tiny jets directed at the surface removing varnish, debris, rust and other pollutants. Ultra sonic cleaning is also used for cleaning optic lenses, jewlery, watches, dental/surgical instruments, diving regulators and industrial parts, etc. Note: This price is for the cleaning itself and does not include labor for dis-assembly and rebuilding the carbs. Simply send us your carbs stripped down to the body or send us the carbs right off the bike and we will strip and rebuild them for you. If you choose to send in the entire carbs right off the bike, we will contact you after we receive the carbs with a complete estimate. Prices for dis-assembly and rebuild vary by carb type and the condition of the carbs. For example, a complete dis-assembly and ultrasonic cleaning of RD350/400 carbs x2 (non-Daytona) typically runs $75 per carb + parts. Price does not include return shipping. If you have any questions about this service or costs please feel free to contact us at 224-430-7971. DSC03078 DSC03080

  • The Cross over tube helps with mid range performance and helps to smooth power delivery, eliminate flat spots, stumble, bucking, etc. Most of the later Euro/Canadian RD400's and the RZ350 had this type of intake set up, but was never available in the USA for the RD's. This kit is a modified verion of the RZ350 intake and requires NO modifications of any kind and is a direct bolt on upgrade for the RD250/350/400 (all years). Rejetting may be required. Kit includes the following:
    • OEM Yamaha RZ350 Manifolds x 2 (modified for the RD)

  • Replacement RD250/350/400 Carburetors - Mikuni VM Round Slide Series 28mm Carburetors (pair). Original carburetors for the RD250/350/400 are no longer available from Yamaha. However, Mikuni does offer new VM28 round slide carburetors that are very similar in function and appearance to the original RD carbs. They do require re-jetting, a new throttle cable and optional oil injection. We include a 2 line cable for bikes that use premix or a 3 line cable if you choose the oil injection option. The oil injection option includes new oil nozzles. These carbs are only available with left hand idle screw and have individual choke levers (no choke crossover between carbs). We can jet the carbs for a stock RD250, RD350 or RD400 or for your specific application if you have pipes and other modifications that require jetting changes. Please submit a note with your order upon checkout for jetting changes required, if additional information is required we will contact you. Carb sets are built to order, please allow 5-10 days for shipping. You should let us know the year/model of your RD and any modifications, pipes, air filter, porting, etc. Note: The oil injection option is not required for the R5/DS7.

    • Kit includes a relay to allow you to use your stock ignition switch
    • Some notes on keyway cutting and woodruff keys:
    • This system does not require a keyway / woodruff key and allows you to run the static timing of your choice (typically RD’s and similar bikes run static timing in the range of  1.8-2.2 BTDC). Also if you intend to use a Zeeltronic ignition controller and dynamic ignition curve a keyed rotor timed in the typical range noted above will not allow the Zeeltronic ignition controller to work properly, additional info below.
    • Cutting a keyway in the rotor/drum voids the warranty
    • The original Yamaha keeway and woodruff key were not intended to be used with the Vape rotor/drum to keep from slipping and absorbing a shear load. They were designed to index timing and once a keeway is cut and woodruff key installed, your timing is fixed and cannot be changed, we don't recommend this modification for these reasons. Additional info from Vape/MZB/Powerdynamo here Vape Keyway Information
    • Requires no battery or lead acid / MF type battery only, however you will need a battery if you intend to use the stock ignition switch and kill switch and Vape relay
    You can combine this Vape CDI system with a fully programmable Ignition Controller from Zeeltronic to enable a dynamic timing curve and rev limiter. These components are offered here on the website in the Zeeltronic programmable ignition controller category. This programmable system is offered exclusively by Economy Cycle.
