Buying_Used_Yamaha_Dirt_Bike_Parts_Online

Yamaha is the king of dirt bikes. They were the first to mass market dirt bikes but they are also one of the toughest, most durable dirt bikes still today. Because they have been around for a long time finding used parts online usually isn’t too difficult. We happen to have a great selection of used Yamaha dirt bike parts. Here’s a few tips to make sure you know how to select and buy the right parts for your machine.

Identification

Since Yamahas have been around so long sometimes vintage dirt bike owners aren’t sure how to find what year they have. The id numbers are on the frame, steering head, and the motor. They will match if the bike is 100% original but a rebuilt bike might have mismatched numbers. If you need to replace a part or have decided to restore your bike knowing these numbers to find the right used parts is important. This chart will give you numbers from the 60s through the 80s.

Safety First

First off, remember your bike is an investment. It is only going to be as safe as the sum of its parts. Replacing poorly functioning parts might seem like a pain but the safer that dirt bike is the less chance you have of being injured. It doesn’t make much sense in investing in a DOT-compliant helmet if you plan on going out with dangerously worn parts. You are an accident waiting to happen. Quality used dirt bike parts are generally an inexpensive way to keep your machine in good working order.

Tips For Buying Used Yamaha Parts

Now that I have sold you maintaining your ride let’s go over a few tips for buying used dirt bike parts. This may sound obvious but make sure the part matches the make and model of your bike. Guys, it’s so easy to get it wrong but that also means it’s easy to get it right. Take time to make sure you know the part number you need. Next, work with a reputable dealer. Ask if they offer even a modest warranty and/or guarantee. Make sure the shipping costs and delivery times are explained well. Lastly, check on their return policy, if by chance the wrong part arrives. There’s nothing wrong with used dirt bike parts until something ends up being wrong with the part because you didn’t do your homework.

Yamaha dirt bikes do not have to cost you an arm and a leg. Buying used parts for your dirt bike is a great way to keep it sailing over even the roughest rhythm section and hugging the tightest turn. A well-maintained bike is a heck of a lot more fun than a broken one sitting in the garage. Check out the used dirt bike parts we have available today.
