Motorcycle Repair/1983 yamaha xt250


Hello. My bike is missing bikebandit part number 1274992 Torsion spring...clutch cable return. My question is how on earth will I in stall the new part.

Thank You

Antonio.....   Well, looking at the drawings, it might not be that hard....

The locking bolt #22 keeps the shaft in place inside the crankcase. You might be able to remove the bolt, lift up the shaft and replace the spring without disturbing anything else, just from the look of it.

That's my best guess for a non-Honda question...

Need help with vintage Hondas from the 1960s? I am an expert with 250-305cc bikes in particular and most all of the other pre-91 models, in general. I do NOT claim to have a great deal of experience on Gold Wings, Cruisers, ATC/ATVs and dirt bikes.


I have owned/ridden/maintained Honda motorcycles for 35 years. I have written five books on Honda repairs and collecting. I was a service manager for two Honda shops back in the 1980s.
