  • 1.  Original Yamaha felts?

    Posted 23 days ago
    Yamaha G3 1978.
    I'm doing the clean up on the key frame. I was wondering if this is original Yamaha stuff?
    The glide bolts are sitting 1.5+ mm below the frame which seemed a bit proud.

    The glide bolts on Yamahas are supposed to stick out about 1-1/2 - 2 mm. This is deliberate, and proper regulation depends on it.
