1975 Yamaha SS50

Garrett Alexander /

Hey everyone, new member here!

i recently picked up a 1975 Yamaha ss50

from what little info i can find, this is the daddy of the fs1e

I am trying to figure out what all the different model numbers mean, i can't seem to find a website to decode the vin to tell me what i have exactly as i need some parts, i also live in Canada would anybody know a website that sells parts for these? i am also looking for a wiring diagram but no luck finding one yet.

i attached some photos of my bike, hopefully someone here can lead me in the right direction! thank you :)

From what I know about Yamaha VINs you have a type 557 Cycle and its the 113th bike made in 1975. Try this place for parts. They have a lot of NOS parts. It's a real place as I've been there and got parts sent to me. http://store.speedandsportinc.com/

¡That thing’s a beauty! I couldn’t get no love for my recently acquired retro shifty on this site, decided I’d have to affix some pedals first:-/

Both awesome bikes. The under 5 hp on the Yamaha was a law in some states so person's under the legal age to get a licence could ride on the streets.

Join Facebook and check out Honda hoarders, there are loads of Facebook groups with thousands of people to find parts for your Honda, Yamaha fizzy not so much lol

I took it for a ride and it is restricted to 25mph but i can fix that ;). i am surprised how much fun it is even at 25mph i can't imagine what it will be like at 50 haha. i think im going to hold on her and restore it, shes a beaut. i also did some more digging and talked to some European guys and they say its a 1974 fs1f france type 469 fizzy equivalent and i have found a decent selection of parts, super expensive though being in British pounds, they also say Canadian models started at 000101 which makes mine number 12 off the line :O guess its time to crow bar open the wallet and restore her :D

Must be weird to have to shift and go 25mph, haha. I have a yg1 80cc and it goes 50 plus. I have an extra cylinder and piston that should fit that. Be like a kit for it haha

Re: 1975 Yamaha SS50

The pipe you have is resticked to and if you pull the baffle out the big plates come out too .. kills back pressure.. if you want the standard look you can get a early fs1e pipe from the EU .. i just got one for $130
