Re: Extra home workshop time

Hi, I was able to buy my Dad's original TY175 back after he had passed away, the tank outside was still very good. But inside it was crap. See attached pictures. I used White vinegar to clean all the rust out. I filled it to the brim, left it for two days, put a short length of dog chain in & sh...

Re: Fork tube repairs

Thanx Paul,
I never knew you could get coloured superglue.
Ash has paid for the bike & we should see it up north this weekend.
I'll be able to see how bad the damaged legs are then.

Cheers,
Gary

Re: Fork tube repairs

I can’t find Jitsie legs to suit Marzocci forks, only Tech forks.

Fork tube repairs

Hi Folks, I’m trying to help a friend but their first Trials bike and $$$ are a little tight. We’ve found a Gasser that seems ok, but both fork tubes have scratches. It has Marzocci forks with the black nitrate coating. Has any body out there been able to repair the scratches or had the tubes recoat...

Re: Montesa and Bultaco

Hi Steve, I've had a couple of Cota 348's over the years. Whats the issue with your old lower legs? I'm thinking they are the square type like the 348 had. I had a big off at the 1979 Aussie C/ships in Canberra and dented the lower leg that bad it locked the fork solid :x On the first lap of the fir...

Re: TLR250 stock jetting

Well spotted Eagle, kit is for a CB100, but it was way cheaper to buy the kit than just buy a needle & seat, plus its the only way I could get a new nozzle. I will be using my standard main jet, but may try the slightly leaner pilot. I also found a HUGE discrepancy in the manifold diameter compa...

Re: TLR250 stock jetting

Hi Eagle,
This kit doesnt have float with it.

I bought a kit the same, but with a float (just as a spare) from same seller.

Cheers,
Gary.

Re: TLR250 stock jetting

Thanx Eagle,
Jetting is same as my 250, #100 main & #40 pilot but your needle & seat are a higher flow than mine.
These TLR’s are so good on fuel I’ve never had the bowl run dry.
Thanx for checking your’s for me.
Have a great New Year.

Cheers.

Re: TLR250 stock jetting

Hi Eagle, The Needle & seat that controls fuel flow into the bowl should be #2.0 (mine is quite worn with a groove in the needle) The pilot jet in my 250 is #40 and main jet is #100 I bought the bike s/h 6 years ago & it's the first time carby has been off (bloody reliable Honda's :D ) I jus...

TLR250 stock jetting

Hi Folks, I'm in the middle of pulling my TLR250 apart to give it some love (new rings), plus a few parts being ceramic coated. 8) I've pulled the carby apart to give it a good clean & once over. I've found a 'Carby Rebuild Kit' on sleezebay that says it fits TLR200 & TLR250 but when I go in...
