Fellas, it has been a pain in the ass so far. I got a gt 80 recently for my pops because it was one of his first ever bikes. Bought it running, but there isnt much compression. I believe its due to the wrong carb being on and a rubber hose from Napa was letting air into the cylinder. Does anyone know somebody who only way somebody that has some old gt 80 parts in a barn? Thanks in advance!

You could try Browns Cycles in Paso Robles, Ca. They have a tremendous supply of Yamaha stuff. No longer a Yamaha dealer but at one time the oldest dealer in the state I believe. Open from 8-12 tomorrow 805-238-1240. Talk David into sifting thru his stuff.
