Yamaha Scrambler: An XSR700 that evokes the IT enduros






Any custom Yamaha XSR700 we feature is sure to spark discussion about the base bike’s design. The XSR700 draws criticism for its cluttered mechanics and hunched fuel tank?and both of those are hard for custom builders to get around.
This heavily upgraded XSR700-based scrambler rises above both those challenges. It’s a collaboration between Portuguese builders Nuno Capęlo (Capęlo’s Garage) and Ricardo Santos (Elemental Rides), and was built for Yamaha Portugal.

It’s not the first time Nuno and Ricardo have worked together for Yamaha Portugal?they built an SR400 two years ago that clearly impressed.
This XSR700 was commissioned as part of Yamaha Europe’s Yard Built program, with builders from nine different countries delivering bikes. The project’s theme was ?Back to the Dirt,? and this XSR has dirt creds by the bucketload.

?I talked with Ricardo,? Nuno tells us, ?and he was totally in. His first ideas were very similar to mine, so I stopped everything I was doing and started sketching. After a lot of drawings exchanged with Ricardo, we quickly got to the final image of the bike.?
The XSR700 has good bones and a punchy and versatile motor. But Nuno and Ricardo wanted to improve its off-road capability?and give it a neo-retro look, inspired by the iconic Yamaha dirt bikes of the 70s and 80s. So they called it the ‘XSR700 TT’ for ‘True Tribute.’

They started by swapping out the XSR700?s suspension for something a bit more dirt-worthy. On went a set of custom 43 mm right-side-up Showa forks. They’re adjustable for compression and rebound, with 230 mm of travel. The rear shock’s also from Showa, fully adjustable and hooked up to a removable linkage to match the front-end’s travel.

The wheels were switched out for a custom set featuring Talon hubs, Excel rims and stainless steel spokes. They measure 18? up front and 17? out back, and wear enduro tires from Mitas.
Nuno and Ricardo also upgraded the front brake with an EBC disc and Brembo caliper, and switched the brake lines out for Teflon ones. And they removed the ABS to drive home the XSR700’s off-road intentions.

With gutsy performance from the 74 hp parallel-twin crossplane crank motor, there was no need to fiddle with the internals. The guys simply switched the airbox for a pair of foam filters to make room for the new bodywork. Then they changed the rear sprocket from a 40T to a 52T, and fitted a heavy-duty O-ring chain from DID.
Most of the visual mastery is happening up top. The fuel tank’s a custom-built steel unit, and we?re told it was ?inspired by 1970s bikes like the Yamaha XT500.? Nuno and Ricardo got around the XSR700?s awkward frame lines by adding cutouts for the rails, so that they could mount it low and level.

To tighten up the rear end, the duo modified a Yamaha DTR fender, and added a pair of sheet metal number boards. Up top is a solo saddle, wrapped in a synthetic, waterpro...
