    Yes, my mistake should cover radiator. The fact I couldn't see and screw holes made me think it was complete.
    Thanks.

    Bit of a sad state, but might be an interesting bike for someone. Unusual tail piece.

    That's a XS250R. The DOHC-engined models have that tail piece. The clutch cover says "YICS" which is Yamaha's weird Yamaha Induction Control System that they used on a few twins in the early 80's. Also ran different main jets in the carbs.

    I thought the YICS was just an extra chamber in the induction system to help with torque.

    Yes...kind of. Used on a few Yamahas in the early eighties. That link Andy posted puts its existence as 1981-1986, which seems about right. Images in this article...

    It was the YEIS I was thinking of, but both do similar jobs.

    There was also the YDIS system around the same time on the XT'250 4V's, the TT Yamaha's and the SRX250's
