Original Accessories
« on: October 19, 2016, 05:46:43 PM »

Does anyone know what accessories Yamaha made for these bikes?  Does anyone have a brochure listing them?  It would be fun to know.

For example, did they make luggage or saddlebags, or windshields?  (Also if not, what are some options for adding these that people have done successfully).

Thanks.

The '78 accessory catalog listed a Luggage Carrier, Backrest with zippered pouch, Standard engine guard and an Oil Cooler. The '77 also listed a Dual Front Disc Brake Kit that should have also fit the '78.
