Here is my Yamaha YZF150
YZ85 chassis with a TTR150 (150 kit). 1 month build here at the shop with Dennis (head tech) and myself. Started with 12" wheels but ended working best with 17".
Pretty fun build and it looks pretty factory and unnoticeable unless you know what your looking at. Runs really strong and handles like a dream. So lightweight and can you brake deep into corners!!! No I am seeing what I can put the YZ85 engine into...hmmm.

nice job muh man, did you use the yz's airbox? I guess you only had to make the front motor mounts, the rear engine hole mount worked out to be the same diameter? definitely factory looking

Thanks. Well none of the mounts worked out really. Front down tube of the frame was added and worked to use the stock holder. The back mount on a TTR does not have that large mount like YZ's do. So fabricated a carrier that used the Swing-arm bolt but then grabbed the rear mounts on the cases.
It is the stock airbox, sort of...We flipped the rear shock around and then spun the airbox boot to be on the other side. But the airbox went through a lot of mods to make it all fit correctly, btu still using a stock filter in it.
Is that a stock 85 swing arm?
Yes, that is the stock 85 swing arm. The 17" fits, not much room for moving the axle front to back for set-up. But I prefer the shorter wheel base over the "big wheel" set-up swing arm.
This is such a surprising bike. It looks small but after reading capacity of engine of this yamaha YZF150 I believe that it is not small. I think it will runs strong and handles like a dream.
Thank you. This bike handles better then I had planned. The YZ 85 chassis is a race bike plan and simple. So it let's you get away with so many things on the track, because it was made to do that!
This is a cool project. I am currently working on the same thing. I cann't wait to ride the thing.
What are you using for a front brake set up?
