Now you have a cleaner bike to start removing
the engine. Remove all the bolts and brackets,
don't forget the one under the motor, and lift
the lump out of the right hand side. You do
not need to remove the top end, it comes out
in one piece no problem.
You should now have something like this in
front of you although this picture show the
YPVS loom and coil fitted.
Fit the YPVS ignition switch to the RG top
Yoke. It will fit with a bit of filing to the
bolt holes, take your time to get it lined up
with the lockstops on the frame and the steering
lock will work as well. Fit the left and right
switchgear onto the bars, but leave the clutch
and throttle cables off for now. Now lay the
YPVS loom onto the frame. And see where you
want to put all the boxes. The fusebox sits
nicely on the rear mudguard behind the rear
brake reservoir, with the YPVS box just behind.
The CDI and Regulator then sat where the RG
airbox was and the RG battery tray is retained.
See the pic above for where the coils go.
Try to sit the regulator in a place where it
You can still access to fuse box in this position.
Switchgear and ignition switch fitted.
You WILL need to remove the top end of the
YPVS motor. I tried all sorts of ways to get
it to fit in with no joy. Anyhow whilst it's
off you can send it away to be tweaked by someone
like Mick Abbey (http://www.two-stroke-addicts.freeserve.co.uk/mick/new.htm).
Then remove the sprocket cover as this will
need to be chopped to fit the frame. Some people
need to file the motor at the bottom on the
clutch cover/motor joint, but I didn't need
to. Offer it up and see first.
Fit the motor into the frame into the frame
using the spacers that you've had machined and
the original RG engine bolts. The chain lines
up nice, but I had to modify the chain guard
as it rubbed a bit.
