Re: TLR Engine Reassembly

You guy's from UK don't seem to understand our geography here. Keychange lives in Dorrigo which is quite a distance from the nearest town of Coffs Harbour and there may not be anyone experienced in TIG welding motorcycle cases. He could get in his car and drive to my place and I could weld it for h...

Re: TLR Engine Reassembly

Cleaning oil and dirt off the casing is really all thats needed for this type of repair Jon. Personally if someone brings me an engine part covered in oil and dirt, it very often takes longer to clean the part up than actually doing the job, which means its going to cost them double.

Re: TLR Engine Reassembly

If its a small crack I would tend to prepare the case for welding, and get someone to TIG it up. Repairs made to cracks in the casing itself, often work fine if epoxy is used, but mounting broken mounting holes are something else entirely, and epoxy repairs may fail when the case is next removed. We...

Re: TY250n rec. trials bike.

With any TY Mono, its a good idea to see if its an S or an R model. The R here in the UK had a plastic fuel tank, alloy back box and adjustable shock, and seemed to rev more cleanly than the S (possibly due to the exhaust). UK model S has steel tank, and some had very restrictive steel back boxes, a...

Re: TLR Engine Reassembly

If you have noticeable noise from the valves on a TLR, and the rocker arms or cam itself arent worn, then its very likely you have a small amount of play in the cam to head bearing journal behind the cam sprocket. If this is the cause of the noise, then in most cases it will get louder as the bike w...

Re: ty 250 improvements

Maybe we should run a poll as to why!!! How is it that whenever I follow the comments in any topic on this website the pen name FM350 keeps coming up and winding people up. I know who he is and he seems to think he is an expert on every trials related subject. He just has an uncanny knack of gettin...

Re: Photo for BRT650

Chinese pit bike clutch kits, which work without any alterations to the bike itself are worth looking at, and only cost around £30.

Re: ty 250 improvements

Some useful info on that link, this was particularly interesting: "NOTE: Some folks claim that the front end of the TY-350 is too light. If you lower the foot pegs, you might want to consider moving them forward as well. Moving the pegs forward 1" will transfer more of your body weight on ...
