They all like wacky old Yamaha stuff.

T991, look at this video:YouTube - 1966 Yamaha YJ2

If that isn't the same bike, it's a darn close relative!

I happen to sell hardware, go to a local fastener specialty shop (NOT a hardware, auto parts or farm supply store) and what you likely need is a SHCS (socket head cap screw), or possbily a BHCS (button head cap screw) it will be metric (duh), and bring the origional screws with you, there are 3 different (2 more common) thread pitches available and having the right size screw with the wrong thread pitch is no better then trying to shove a drywall screw in there. A specialty shop should have a thread pitch gauge, if unavailable, put a nut (with known thread pitch) on the bolt to see how well it mates, therefore matching your pitch. Try to buy Camcar or Umbrako if available.
You will also have to see if they are fully or partially threaded, partial likely but make sure. All are likely M8 or M10 diamater, but the pitch & head are crutial for fit as well as the thread distance. Next issue is finish & coating, and they most commonly (aside of the motorcycle market) are black, some shops will have stainless steel, but you aren't likely to stumble across chrome heads unless you are wanting box quantities of each size. Good luck.

The sidecover screws are M6x1.0. That's fairly standard.

The Haorbor Freight impact driver ($7.99) is krap. The bits fractured the first time I used it, the retaining collar got misaligned and the entire thing stopped funtioning. Makes a nice ballast for holding down my RC plane wheels.

Get the "BikeMaster" brand driver. At $14.99, it's twice as expensive, but my last one lasted 20 years.

Huh. Times change. I've got one that's the "Made in Taiwan Harbor Freight Quality" my Dad bought from a dude sellin' tools out of the back of a rusty '68 Ford back alongside Hwy 37, circa '82 or so - not yet failed me.

"Harbor Freight" before there WAS a "Harbor Freight"........

Not sayin' they're worth two shytes now, though.

Harbor Freight can be a 'crap-shoot.' Some stuff is not worth carrying home, while some items are pretty nice.

I've had really good luck with the 16-speed drill press and the 14" band saw (with extension). The original blade was crap, though.

A buddy uses their hand tools on his boat. He doesn't get upset about corrosion or other issues; he just tosses them and gets more.

Seems like there was a site (you just knew there would be, didn't you!?) that ranks HF stuff.

Thanks for all the info guys. I'll keep this all in mind. I don't have a local "fastener specialty shop". I'll see what I can do with that. Im hoping to have it fully restored or at least 3/4 restored by the end of this summer or sooner. Compared how fast I can get the things I need. But thanks again guys.
