I got my Falcons direct from UK. NJB make trials shock absorbers and are also in the UK and they are cheaper than the Falcons but are not rebuildable. Cost of post from the UK is high but does work out quite a bit cheaper.
Cheers

Look forward to your feedback on the reeds. Yeh the A foot pegs are tiny and I could not ride without widening them. Thanks for the info on the fuel tap and pictures would be appreciated. With the Falcons should the gas charge force the shock in the extended position or is the gas charge balanced on...

Hi Again I had a big off on my Sunday Practice. I had just started the TY and decided to putt up a steep incline as slow as I could go. It jumped out of gear and I rolled back over a 3ft rock ledge. Dinting my pride and the tank again. Any way my TY tends to jump out of gear sometimes and i suspect ...

Thanks for the bash plate pictures. I would be a bit worried using the same bash plate on an A as a B. As you know the A has much wider casings so my bashplate is wider at the front to protect those precious casings. I had a bit of ignition failure at the weekend. Still found water in the case. Do y...

Yeh I know you should not force water near seals and that's the first thing you teach your kids to do when you make them steam clean your bike when you take the lazy way out. I recently blew a source coil so are now starting to get into the habbit of opening up the flywheel case which as mentioned i...

David Picture below shows the set up with the existing mount above. I used a solid bit of bar that fit nicely in the bottom cross tube and ground it away to get near to the same shape as the original mounts and built up some spots with weld as required. Then you need to tack weld the new adapters in...

David Your peg set up looks good. I made my extensions myself and bronzed them on to the originals and welded an adapter into the bottom cross tube. My Pegs are 50 mm lower than the standard set up. May be to low but still have the option to put them back to the original mount which I think I will t...
