Well, just for the pedants among us...the ROW 3rd gen red in 1993 was R-158P, the same red as the US 4th gens.  My UK-spec '93 is that colour.  However, I also have a US-spec '90 in parts, and have a full set of NOS R-157 plastics as well as a couple of tanks and I'd have to say that you'd be hard-pressed to tell the difference between the R-157 and R-158 tanks.  You try:

Which one is the R-158P?   :happy:

 

Ciao,

Right looks darker. 

 

Are the safety stickers also different?

Well, she runs beautifully. The rebuilt carbs went on easily with a little coaxing from the heat gun. Mixture screws out 2 turns with the #42 pilot and one shim. 

 

The gearbox is nice and smooth, no trouble getting to neutral.

 

Now I just need to start electrolysis on the tank. Hopefully, I get to ride it soon 🤞🏼

It's a little too quiet though 😅 How is the exhaust slip-on adapter project going?

I got some pieces in and I have 2 or 3 very promising options.   I'm hoping to also install my carbs this weekend and verify the engine.  And then I will hack off the muffler and start to fab up.  Will update.

Its a quality unit.  Your #42 pilots will compensate nicely.  No need for bigger mains with a slip-on.

 

If you like the looks and its in good shape, thats a good deal.

It is interesting. I knew what you were talking about, but never heard Yoshi. Only Yosh.

Yoshimura is actually two words, Yoshi is good or lucky and mura is village or town. Yoshi is also the name of the cute dinosaur in Super Mario World.

It's always been Yoshi in my Asian circle

Oohhhhhhhh!   Hah!  Sorry, I'm an idiot.   I knew you were talking about a pipe, I just totally forgot that's why you were interested in an adapter.

 

Cheers!

Yoshi in Australia too. Usually said in reverent tones when in the presence of a Suzuki TL1000R with full Yoshi system.
