Yamaha Passola SA50 Engine Swap

Post by MorePoke2Stroke » Mon Jan 06, 2020 1:18 am

I bought this Yamaha Passola for chips it's not running but plenty of compression. I suspect I know exactly what the problem is so a good clean and service should do it. The plastics are in really good condition and all there apart from some jagged bits on the front guard. It has really good bones aswell for a 40 something year old scooter the whole things just reaallly dusty from sitting 10+ years(inside mind you). I don't see many of these so I was originally thinking a restoration and I've seen some neat custom ones on the web. I've heard that the BW'S and Jog Engine fit so if that's the case I'm sorted for performance parts. Any input would be appreciated and even more so if you also have/had one of these awesome puppies.

As am I, I saw it on eBay for $50. Id never seen one of these before in real life so I jumped when I saw it. It arrived yesterday, it's aesthetics are in pretty bad but repairable condition. It's all there mechanically. I may have to source some fairings for it though. It's a 80-82 model I can't find the vin yet but the colour code online says 80-82. 3836kms on it which isn't bad. One got posted on Gumtree yesterday for 2.2k with 86XXkms so I'm well ahead.
