Re: Show us a picture of your Twinshock

Here are 5 of my twin-shock bikes, only have the two twin shock trials bikes at the moment though, KT250A2 and 320TL. There are 6 bikes in the pic but one is a full floater, so don't count!!

Re: KT250 resto...help appreciated

I got lazy Ross and just drilled the new guard to fit the original centre bracket that holds the brake adjuster. Its got just a little bit of flex in the guard but it works just fine. The after-market guard isn't quite as wide as the original guard. My original guards are quite good so I will get th...

Re: KT250 resto...help appreciated

It looks pretty good in the flesh. I was pleasantly surprised when it started 2nd kick and sat there idling away like a bought one. New crankcase seals and a carby kit have freshened it up a bit(top end was new anyway) Once I bled the autolube pump I took it for a ride and its surprisingly punchy of...

Re: KT250 resto...help appreciated

Just about finished. Decided not to go with the Kawasaki green/white for the time being, I am running out of time to get it semi-sorted before CD8. And after all, the bike has to share the shed with quite a few yellow-ish bikes........ http://i408.photobucket.com/albums/pp166/Bigem08/IMG_0857.jpg ht...

Re: KT250 resto...help appreciated

Thanks again David, much appreciate the advice. As I am running a 520 chain/sprocket setup with the shocks in the conventional position, I will have to run a 2-3mm spacer top and bottom on the lh side to give me the clearance on the chain I like to have. Brake side isn't an issue but I haven't fitte...

Re: KT250 resto...help appreciated

Okay, thanks David. I know the Falcon's on my SWM have to be inverted and as I said I was not sure about the Betor's. I tried Googling the damn things with no luck so went through some of the gallery pics on here and I would say 90% of the bikes with these Betors have them inverted. Will it make muc...

Re: KT250 resto...help appreciated

Time for an update on the KT resto. I had not touched it since February and have got stuck in over the last couple of weeks. CD8 is coming fast and I want to take the KT up there with the SWM(and others). Top-end had been rebuilt by the previous owner( 2nd oversize rebore etc) but he didn't do crank...
