Re: Chain Lubes

Just few drops of synthetic oil on the rear sprocket about 1oclock is enough, spin it around few times , any more or less = big wear.

Re: My hunt for a tl250 seat continues

Is that the one that was rusted[seat base]? if so , just clean it up, get rid of the rust with acid etc, and fiberglass it, with few layers and recover the seat as normal.

Re: KT250 New VM26 Carb Jetting

I recently put a Chinese mikuni copy on to a 175, only needed needle adjustment , it will most likely only need minor adjustment being same size, put it on and see how it runs and go from there.

Re: Removing carbon

Yes, that's what the aim is. Can depend on the 2 stroke oil used in the bike, castor oil is harder to loosen, so is outboard oil which seems to turn into lumps and solidify. Anyway you do it its a messy job.

Re: Removing carbon

I partially fill it with old sump oil, block off the ends, turn it so it coats everypart of the inside,leave it for a week, then do the same with degreaser, then blow it out with water with home made nozzles[made from copper tubing.

Re: SHERCO 125 2004... Any good for a beginner?

Maybe a 250 [90kg] would be more suitable, personally I get frustrated with anything under a 250 because not much[or less] happens when twisting the throttle.
