About YDSParts

YDS Parts is run by myself, Alasdair Cowan. I have collected and restored old Yamahas and Kawasakis for over 14 years now. I started the business due to finding certain parts increasingly hard to find. Rather than trawl the internet for hours looking for that elusive part, I thought it would be a far better idea to re-produce certain items that were hard to find. I also try to keep various service items in stock for most models. I am always open to suggestions for parts that should be re-produced or re-manufactured. If you cannot see what you are looking for, e-mail me! I always have NOS parts for sale and also bikes for sale that require restoration.

Me and a 1965 YDS3C Bigbear that had sat in a shed since 1981, 3,500 from new and seized solid. Last on the road in New Jersey in 1973. Still had the puncture repair kit wrapped in the owners handbook sleeve, the air pump was under the tank as well! Now sold (with the front mudguard on!).

Busmans holiday trip to LA, January 2006. Beats the Scottish winter!

One for the next time, a 1963 YD3, 5000 miles from new, all original with all tools! Wish I had bought it now!
