Default Yamaha G1 owners club-post here

After doing several searches with no luck and seeing all the new G1 owners coming on board I figured it was time to start up a club for G1 owners. So I guess I'll start it off. I've got a 84 that I am putting a clone motor in, lifting and doing a butt load of other stuff to. Have learned a lot from this site so far and love getting new ideas from others. I'm already making plans for another G1 build and don't even have this one done yet.

Great idea gray horse..I have two G1's an 81 and an 84 love them both they are like mini tanks..The 81 has a 10.5" lift and stretched 40" with 23" tires [love to trade some one for some 25's or 26's]..The 84 has 4.5" lift with 22's and if I did anything else to it my wife would kill me [she loves her cart]..

Awesome idea

I have an 83 G1, with a 420 clone in it, 6" lift, and a laundry list of stuff to get done to it

For a thirty year old cart, this thing has held up great. No wonder people call them "tanks"

I have an '84 thats currently in pieces all over the garage floor. I've gotten so much help here including Todd, Grayhorse, Slonomo, Pachanga and many others. I need to have this done early April and I'm being a little fussy with it. Thanks to all of you for your help and this is a great idea Grayhorse. G1's Rule

I bought a non running 86' yamahualer, (as someone else called it). It had a new piston,rings and seal kit already done. I've been going through it and replacing things as I get to them. Since the grounding system seems to be a problem, I started there. Made all new grounding harness and connectors. Now I've moved on to the fuel system, I'm hopeful to have it running good by the spring so I can focus on the lift and tires.

Great idea Gray Horse! This thread should have been started a long time ago. I am the owner of two G1s. One is an 83 and the other is an 84. Both have been great campground carts for me. After I bought my first one I knew I had to have another.

Great to see people coming on board. The G1 is a tank. Good, heavy, solid frame makes for all kinds of possibilities. After I get this one done I'm going to look for another. Want to stretch it, long travel the front and 4 link the back with a big block. May go extreme and put a HD motor/trans setup in it since I have an extra laying around.

Gray, 4 link sounds awesome and HD motor/trans puts it way over the top!!!! Not good for me to have those kinds of visions.
