Re: Parts for TY 250 C

Hello FM350, Can you check your translator settings on your internet explorer please? I think maybe what you are reading is different to what we are reading and that could just be a setting that you can adjust.

Re: Parts for TY 250 C

I wonder what machining is needed to fit modern forks to a TY? Not fitted any to TY myself, but here in the UK 38mm forks seem a much better choice than 36mm from TY Mono, so curious to know whats involved?

Re: Parts for TY 250 C

In some cases 38mm forks can be fitted to TS bikes, simply by fitting different size head race bearings and making a couple of simple spacers. Eg: Beta 38mm forks with 26mm OD steering stem fit straight into a TS Fantic frame, with a 5mm spacer under each bearing in the headstock, and even use the s...

Re: Parts for TY 250 C

FM350, Why is it that nearly every time you offer any advice on old bikes you seem to be recommending modifications which would use parts from outside the era of the bikes, and render them ineligible for competition here ... and ...

Re: Parts for TY 250 C

Here in the UK its often cheaper to buy a used pair of modern 38mm forks from Ebay, than mess around getting OE re-chromed. Hi FM350, Here in Australia if a person wants to compete in trials in any of the Motorcycling Australia affiliated clubs they need to comply with the General Competition Rules...

Re: TLR Engine Reassembly

Never tried alloy soldering myself, but seen plenty of demonstrations where cracked side cases are repaired in less than 5 minutes. Looks a good way to repair low stress parts, and as its a low heat process I would guess things made from pot metal can be repaired?

Re: TLR Engine Reassembly

Epoxy will probably work, but I would suggest prepping the case , applying the JB and then actually fitting case to the motor and tightening the mounting screws as this is the best way to avoid any leaks due to the broken part not being level to the rest of the case.

Re: TLR Engine Reassembly
