Yippee!

Well, I think I've fixed the major problems with my 74 T750V.

Been chasing oil leaks (well, duh!) and just finished the Service Bulletin mainshaft gear/countershaft splines work. Seeing minor drips from the primary still. Not sure if it's inner or outer yet but it's not too bad right now. Plus, there's no oil running out when the bike is on the sidestand.

Biggest advancement was getting the clutch adjusted. I can snick into gear w/o killing the motor, find nuetral at a dead stop, smoothly up and down shift, and don't (yet) feel any slipping. Yeah!

I may be able to ride this beast to the Bull City Rumble yet (Durham, NC, Labor Day weekend).

I'm betting it's a T150V, 750 Trident triple

Make sure you have the clutch pullrod seal in the right way around. Its a trap for the inexperienced.

Right you are. My fat fingering strikes again.

Got the rear tire mounted. Front was completed yesterday. Get the rear on the bike and I can take it out on the road. The tires on the bike when I got it were the original, from the factory, tires. I did find that the front had a new(er) tube in it though. Seemed strange.

Have I mentioned how much I dislike security bolts? Yeah, I thought I did!

Hi from another T150V bike owner from Ontario, Canada.
Sealing our bike's primary could be quite tricky.
The same with setting up a clutch.
Are you sure your big nut under a small one on a pull rod turns around?
Operating our gearbox however is pure pleasure ( comparing to my sold A65 ).

Hey there from North Carolina!

Once I got everything disassembled, Yamabond sealed the primary apparently quite well! So far, anyway.

The entire clutch mechanism from lever to pull rod, was taken apart, cleaned, properly lubed and reassembled. Then the adjustment finally worked correctly. That large nut has 0.005" clearance, just what the manual specifies. Guess the engineers knew what they were talking about, eh?

There is still oil drips showing up when parked after running but nothing like before I started fixing things. I think the chain oiler is putting out too much as well. I might just wait until Winter to work on those minor drips.
