The SRV, I put 11000 miles on my old 82. Rebuilt it once, all it need was rings and seals. Preventive maintenance I would recommend replacing crank seals if it has over 6000 miles. Replace the fan belt and fan bearings yearly. If you want air induction order the set up from Yamaha, they came on 86 and up SRV's.
Basically from 83 to 90 there was little to no changes except for the air scoop.
A little known fact; 1980 was the first SRV, it was army green and only a few made. 81 they were silver and blue. 82 they were black with yellow and red striping and from then on the motor was un-changed.
I changed the suspention and comet clutch to the 83 model and added the fan induction off the 86 model. The comet clutch netted 5 sled lengths over stock.
Let me know if you need further help, I know this sled inside and out.
