T80 and T80 bevel box

T80 and T80 bevel box

Post  teapot on Wed 4 Jun - 22:23

I've read somewhere on this forum that the T80 and T80 final drive boxes are identical. However when clearing out my garage I decided to compare, as I had one of each.

I found the ratios are actually quite different. The T50 one is 3.3:1 whereas the T80 one is almost exactly 3:1 reduction. The T50 bevel box is off to the scrap yard with all the other scrap metal on friday as I can't see it being any use of a T80 which is geared low enough already. Perhaps it would help for uphill mountain riding, but that's about all  Laughing

T50 T80 Bevel box

Post  JohnW on Wed 4 Jun - 22:49

Interesting, will check my spares to see what ratio they are. I think the pinion may be same on both with just the large gear with an extra tooth.
If that's so it may be worth keeping for the pinon & case. The splines on the input shaft part of pinion assy are prone to wear so it may help someone. Also there maybe a few T50's still out there, & a T80 used in hilly country may benefit from a lower ratio.
Have just looked at the handbook http://www.classiccycles.org/media/DIR_122/DIR_664222/DIR_784233/d6bbd1466c316161ffffb256ffffe417.pdf and the actual ratios are T50 3.589 & T80 3.166

Gaz, why on earth would you want to, the shaft drive is one of the best features of the Townmate. May as well get a c90.

Read this thread http://yamahatownmatet80.forumotion.co.uk/t387-speerol-grease?highlight=Speerol
You need to buy a Haynes manual (plenty on eBay) it tells you how to do it.
