Here are the photos and some details of the my TY250A clutch lightening Mods. Photos are a bit blurred but should be sufficient to get the idea Both the motor lever and the cable mount were modified. Motor lever was extended by 25 mm using 1mm steel folded over to wrap around the existing lever. The...

I have emailed Falcon re maintenance and spares on the Classic steel shocks but no reply so far. I have a couple of other issues to discuss I saw a trick lever with 3 positions for the cable lug and was told that it made the lever quite easy to use. This would help me as I often get Hand cramps. I w...

Hi Aagain David wrote "The top shiny bit that looks like an oil seal retainer is a dust seal retainer and is a push fit in the end of the body" I had the springs off the shocks to check them before the Vic Titles this weekend and noticed quite a bit of oil leakage. So I thought I would giv...

Thanks for the feedback on the reeds. So that something i will leave off the need to do list.

Hi Again We had the last round of the Vic Troy series combined with a junior development day. So while my boy was getting trained i was doing a bit of practice myself.

I emailed rob at 4robs and he does not have any inlet tubes for TY250's at the moment but said he will be making some soon. (Oct - Nov $40-) . I tried to soften mine with armoroil then tried WD40 with no luck. Then put it in some heated up WD40 and the shape improved but it shrunk at the hard end( c...

Yamaly, Nice looking 175. I have not seen one like thay before. What is it based on? Have you done all the mods yourself? What shocks are you using? I have my 250 forks 8mm down in the clamps and this seems OK and I like the bit of extra ground clearance. Where is your 250 forks set Up? I also check...
