Re: Kill Switch

Both types of magnetic lanyard killswitch (normally open and normally closed) are available. For your application you would use normally open which means the switch is open when the magnet is in position. The new one will have two wires. One goes to your existing killswitch wire.

Re: Kill Switch

The cheap ones that use friction for the lanyard plug are on eBay and have a stop button incorporated. I'm not recommending them though. There's a good reason the good ones use a magnetic switch https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Universal-Engine-Cord-Lanyard-Kill-Stop-Switch-Safety-Tether-For-ATV-Motorcyc...

Re: Brief guide for setting points timing on TY

What no fag-papers? (Sign of the times eh?) I figure you are probably joking but in case not, fag paper is OK for bikes where you can get at the points easily but TYs are pretty much impossible to get the paper in because you have to rotate the access hole away from the points to get the points ope...

Re: Basket Cases

And that was an excellent set of parts swaps you did too. I'm impressed and it is good to know that Donna's Honda is going again

Re: Honda TLM 200

Hi Everyone, I've just had some more parts cleaned up by our local vapour blast person. David, do you need and are you going to clear coat the vapor blasted parts? The reason I ask if when you beadblast aluminum it comes up a fair bit better than 45 year old clear coat or anodizing but it dulls off...

vapour blasting KT parts

I've just had some more parts cleaned up by our local vapour blast person. There is a KT rear wheel in pieces and a TY250A rear rim in this lot. The rear hub especially looks so much better. The KT rim had the original anodising removed then vapour blasted. The TY rim had the original clear paint re...
