1973 yamaha dt250 headlight needed

I am having serious issues trying to find parts. Right now the big issue is a headlight. 6V35/35W. Anyone with suggestions? I live in Anchorage so my local possibilities are limited. Yamaha dealer was no help whatsoever.yamatopdog was no help either.For the love of god SOMEONE must have a headlight for my bike.

Found 1 items.
Part Number Description Model Prefix On Hand Price Add Cart
1 233-84120-60-00 LENS ASY DT1 MINOR 233 3 $45.86

Straight from speed and sport's website (yamatopdog)
you state that it is a 1973 DT250, I assume you mean a DT3, which is the 1973 250 enduro. You can tell the difference as 1974 has the pipe essentially above the engine, with a sausage shaped silencer aft of it. The 73 and before have the pipe entirely on the right hand side, and it does not go through the fender.
Anyway, give me a shout if you need more info.

here's the hot setup if you can fit the parts yourself:
replaceable bulb headlight as used on first year production DT1s:
233-84120-60-00 lens 45.86
214-84115-61-00 rim 32.25
214-84114-60-00 bulb, 6V 35/35 W 5.29 each (Get several)
214-84112-61-00 bulb socket 25.01

this gives you the ability to pull the lens/rim assembly, pop ot the bulb by hand, then put in another. I lived in Australia for a while, and carried spare bulbs with me so I did't have to drive home in the dark.

Hope this helps. again, call the yamatopdog crew, it all shows in stock.

Re: 1973 yamaha dt250 headlight needed

After I posted the previous, I happened to think that perhaps you should have the speed and sport guys send one of their parts amnual reprints that they sell. Then you can go on line and check their stock, order what you want. If you have a 74 bike, I have a spre one here at the house, so if it doesn't work out, I can look around and see if I can find it.

Try speed and sport again, let me know how it works out.

Re: 1973 yamaha dt250 headlight needed

You're welcome....
While no longer in the business, I restore and fool around with older Yamahas. If you do that, you really need to learn how the parts system works or it will do you in. I have the advantage of having been a Yamaha mechanic many many years ago, but since dabbling in the older bikes for the past 8 years, I have been forced to learn how the parts system is set up, and I then use Speed and Sport's own website to stock check. The suffix portion of numbers are rev numbers or colors, if a painted item. The prefix 3 letter/number set is the original model it was used on, and the center set is the item. An example would be 248-1111 AT1 part, let's say a cylinder head. 251-1111 is also a cylinder head, but for a CT1. Search their parts with as few numbers as possible, then weed through the results. Cindy and Shelly are really good at helping out. (maybe I'll wanter up there after I retire and work for them)

Re: 1973 yamaha dt250 headlight needed

Tried to use the DT1 socket and bulb to retro into the old sealed beam(against your advise) and ended up pre drilling holes and using small screws to connect them. It works, but I'll be doing it correctly soon.I think I have some wasted bearings so that has taken priority. Just thought I would let you know what a bonehead I am.....I mean how it turned out.
