Re: TY250 Fork Improvement

Hi Tricub To work out the airgap I got a PVC tub about the same size diameter as the spring and blocked it at one end. Pored in some water about the same height as the spring. Marked the height and them drop in the spring and spacer to work out the oil / water displacement of the spring. I could the...

Re: TY250 Fork Improvement

I was all keen to buy some emulators until a mechanic advised me that his suspension guru told him that he thought there would be little benefit for use with trials bikes. So I started mucking about with oil levels and weight again on my TY250 forks. I calculated the air gap left under full compress...

Re: TUBLISS - Conversion From Tube to Tubless

Hi Jeremy The instructions do say you can use slime as a lubricant on installation as an option. This is so you get the slime in for puncture protection. (Then you don't use the soapy water that would water down the slime and make it to thin to work). I did not follow these instructions. The instruc...

Re: TUBLISS - Conversion From Tube to Tubless

Just some quick feed back on the Tubliss. Rode the trial without a problem. It was really good to feel you could hit the rocks a bit harder without the fear of a pinch flat. Found another guy at the trial who had a Tubliss installed as well. He has been riding with it for 12 months and said it was g...

Re: TUBLISS - Conversion From Tube to Tubless

The tubliss system uses kind of a small tire inside of the main tire with a tube inside of it. The small tire ( about 40mm in cross section diameter) is pumped up with a small tube. They are made by nuetech. The web site instructions with video for each step are very good. (nuetech.com/tubliss/) loo...

TUBLISS - Conversion From Tube to Tubless

Sick of walking my bike back after pinching the tube on a big rock. The IRC is just about unridable when flat and would be destroyed. I bought a tubliss conversion and installed it on my TY250 1.85 skinny rim. It worked well today on the first ride with a Michelin X light. So hopefully no more pinch...

Re: TY250 Fork Improvement

Hi Guy
Did not notice the Cartridge eliminator topic. Very interesting and another completely different option.

Thanks for letting me know. I would be interested in your feed back on them. I will keep an eye on that post.

Cheers

Re: Betor Shock Rebuilds

Hi I have bent my Betor shocks several times and straightened them several times. ( with a pretty crude method and they still seal well with the original seals) Any way I measured the oil when I rebuilt one that had not leaked, it was close to 80ml. So thats what I use. I just pump in as much air pr...
