1977 Yamaha XT500 Project XTracker

Here’s a run down on the build/ parts
Forks: 1996 GXSR 750. I shaved all extra mounting brackets
Head light: LED light bar (scored it as a sample from a supplier at my day job) recessed into an aluminum number plate with custom mount brackets that incorporate front brake cable clamps. 6v to 12v conversion to run the LED lights.
Handlebars: ProTaper off YZF250. Motogadget bar end signals. Mini push button switches & Motogadget relay used for signals. All wiring routed through the handlebars.
Front brake: Brembo radial master cylinder (left over from supermoto race bike), 6 piston caliper (off ZX6R), 310mm rotor (off triumph trophy 1200)
Wheels: 19” cast Yamaha front wheels with custom machined hub carrier for disc brake & the rear wheel has incorporated drive sprocket and brake rotor on the same side of the wheel. The rear wheel setup was one of my engineering challenges for the build. I had modeled everything in solidworks 3D cad to make it all work. Shinko flat track tires.
Rear brake: Gsxr master cylinder, custom link to use stock rear brake lever, brembo caliper (off ducati monster), 310mm rotor (off triumph trophy 1200)
Exhaust: Stainless steel, Hoos racing header, cone eng 12” reverse cone muffler, 18 degree bend
Seat pan: Knight style fiberglass – the same one my Dad had when he had it setup as a street tracker. Good thing he doesn’t throw anything out!
Seat: Custom made by Haversack leather. I made a fibreglass base to match the seat pan contour right to the rear of the fuel tank.
Rear shocks: YSS

Misc: Aluminum inner fender, stainless steel mx style foot pegs, aluminum mini skid plate, Works connection motocross clutch lever with hot start lever for decompression, KTM handlebar mounts. All hardware changed to socket head bolts. Aluminum gas cap & oil tank cap. Custom made license plate bracket, LED light strip mounted to bottom side or rear frame loop. Machined aluminum fuel tank mount spacer that matches the number plate & seat pan washers.
