Re: Basket Cases

Hi Dave, yes dimensions basically the same with the Bully snail cams (405-420mm). Don't know yet what these dimensions will be once aftermarket notched snail cams are introduced but I'm guessing similar. I think Berry's idea with this swingarm was to make it adaptable between 250 and 325/350, hence ...

Re: Basket Cases

My original Bully 183 swingarm measures 405mm (axle fully forward) and 420mm (axle most rearward) with original snail cams and has rectangular bottom shock mount.
But when I eventually put it all back together it will wear this alloy beauty, I can hear the purists gagging already.

Re: kt 250 differences

Hey Graham, other than gudgeon pin and bearing, the front hub seemed to be the most updated mechanical parts.

Re: kt 250 differences

No major changes, just small stuff from what I can see from my parts manual for the '76 A2, note that only the numbered parts are different between '75 A and '76 A2. Also frame and engine numbers start with KT2 on my '76 A2. Differences between A and A2 FOREWORD.jpg Differences between A and A2 Part...

Re: Cota 172 Restoration

The chassis is 19M1851, as I believe there were only about 1990 built I guess it’s pretty late, but I think it’s 1975. I’ve been waiting for my rear shocks to be rebuilt as the shaft of one was bent and wore the piston on one side. I have no doubt that it will be a good job but I have been waiting ...

Re: Steer Clear - understanding steering for twinshocks

This pic of the the same bike in a section says it all, looks like negative trail has kicked in and he is struggling in that sand. I first saw this pic a few weeks ago on TC and thought it looked awkward and now after reading through this informative post I can see why.
