Re: TY175 not firing

Thank you once again David.

I'll pass all that on and see where it leads.

Coincidentally another mate told me yesterday he has bought a TY250B and has started down the rebuild road, I'll pass the same info to him also.

Re: TY175 not firing

Thanks David, What's the best solution for a replacement condenser? The owner told me he couldn't find a source for new ones. I suggested he just go to an auto elec with the spec and then figure a way to mount it in there once he's got something of the correct value. The plug cap is the big black on...

TY175 not firing

I'm helping a mate out with a TY175B that he's rebuilding. He got it in parts and has reassembled everything. He is not very experienced mechanically, and my last TY was a 175C when it was just a few years old. On first trying to get it going he decided that the coil was faulty and bought a replacem...

Re: Fork tube repairs

JB Weld is a really good metal filled epoxy filler. It also lasts in the tubes almost for ever - I've got some ratty old tubes here that must be a good 15 years old and they're still OK! Another good trick is sodium bicarbonate and super glue. Sprinkle a bit of bicarb into the scratch then drip in t...

Re: Trials in Victoria - MV vs AMA

It's a no-brainer to someone like me who rides a few comps each year for personal challenge, a bit of socialising and shits and giggles. In the past I've just bought day licences & kept my own records of my cards so I could see where I might have placed. Paying for the day licences for myself an...

Re: Penrite Semi/Full Synthetic MC-4ST oils?

I've experimented with both, in new and old bikes, and found no determinable difference but I change oils ever couple of events anyway. The trick is to to find an oil that doesn't contain an anti friction additive since that's not great for a wet clutch. Most folk that use ATF choose it because it'...

Re: Penrite Semi/Full Synthetic MC-4ST oils?

Take a look at lubealloy.com.au. I run one of their oils in my adventure bike and it shifts significantly smoother than off the shelf oils. Alastair Thanks Alastair, but I like to support my local shop, he does Penrite and gives me a good price. Penrite it is. Why not just use the recommended Penri...

Penrite Semi/Full Synthetic MC-4ST oils?

My preferred local option for oil is a Penrite dealer, and I like the fact that Penrite is an Australian company. I've been using Penrite ATF oil in my bikes ('07 GG '13 Sherco) and have been happy enough with it. Now I've added a '17 Beta 300 2t to the stable and am contemplating what to use. The r...

Re: Magnetic mudguard holder

Actually, if you mount the magnets the wrong way around they are a completely repellent idea. :P
