I did a "wake up" on this 1992 Yamaha TDM for a good friend who is moving away (same guy that sold me his '98 KLR650). I did the basic tank drain & rinse, carb cleaning, battery swap, and a couple of fuel lines replaced, then took it for it's first ride in about 3 years.
When we got to talking about what all it was going to need to be trusty again, he told me it could be mine "super cheap"
Well, it's mine.
It's kinda like a Commando in that it's a vertical twin 850cc 4-stroke with dry sump, but it's 5 valves per cylinder, DOHC, water cooled and has tall suspension. Sorta like a John Player, too, as it has dual headlights. I like it!
They're kinda rare, only imported in 92 & 93 as an 850.
