RD400 / RD350 / RD250 / R5 Wheels
Vintage Japanese spoked wheels are more than just beautiful, they are pound-for-pound stronger than the later mag wheels. Keep your RD350 restoration true to its era and go back with spokes during your wheel replacement. We carry RD350 wheels and rims for the early Yamaha RDs, as well as spoke-wheel and mag-wheel weights. Mikes XS is also your source for Yamaha RD350 front-wheel oil seals, air valves and inner tubes.
One issue that can sneak up on even the most diligent of RD350 owners is a slack drive chain. The forces a vintage 2-stroke Yamaha exert on drive chains can be sudden and enormous, as these bikes jump into the power band. If your RD350’s chain is beginning to snag or kink, replace it sooner rather than later to prevent more serious issues. Mikes XS carries RD250, RD350 and RD400 drive chains to smooth out your ride and the shifting of your vintage Yamaha. And when you renew your drive chain, consider replacing your RD350 front and rear sprockets to finish upgrading your classic Yamaha restoration. If it makes your vintage Yamaha 2-stroke roll, look for it at Mikes XS.
