The elf link !!

Postby barrybubbles » Tue Aug 07, 2018 9:31 pm

Newbie to this Forum, so apologies if this has been asked/discussed before,....But I notice a little sticker in the right side of the rear swingarm that says,....Project by Yamaha Elf......I'm presuming that is in reference to the front end as opposed to the rear swingarm ???......anyone have any knowledge on this ??.....I thought that Elf was a Honda project partnership...????????

Curious. Mine is a shabby one - and an import, with non original paint.

Got a pic?

The same one on mine, but located on the front swingarm below the rubber bumper.

I've just had a look on the parts manual,...under the section of the swingarm it shows an item with a part number(32) and a location,....so it is obviously a genuine part !!!

We checked most of the ones at the Euro meet. Some had it, some didn't. Odd!

I think that's probably well known, but what's the link between a bike maker an oil maker and the GTS?

Elf sponsored Honda's funny front end. Nobody is aware of any Elf-Yamaha link ups?
