that was competing the year that Yamaha and Honda both won the title, they changed the points rules partway thru the season, and one company won under each points system.

Yamaha had a 9 speed transmission on a 4 cylinder iirc.

yea.

Then the FIM stepped in and said "all 250's have to be twins, and can't have more than 6 gears."
