Re: Replacement carbs?

Stu it depends on the way that the rules in the MOMS for Twinshocks Class are interpreted. Earlier this year I made a few suggestions through my club for clarifications of a few issues relating to Twinshock Class that could be included in the 2012 MOMS, and one suggestion to remove carburettors fro...

Re: Replacement carbs?

If you get the chance Jon try a Brit bike fitted with a well set up modern carb.............the effect is a bit like using an up to date ignition, rather than a BTH mag.

Re: Replacement carbs?

I think in many cases it is down to form over function,people believing their bike cant run properly unless it sports a flat slide Mk2 etc. Yesterday I rode a classic trial on my HT5,running a mk1 Concentric - it runs perfectly a real pleasure to use.Looking around at other bikes there were allsort...

Re: Replacement carbs?

Just trying to figure out why exactly there is so much concern about what carb is fitted to an older bike? Here in the UK we have £10k+ modern Brit twin-shocks being ridden in the "P65" class, and if the Scottish "P65" 2 day next month is anything to go by, pretty much the only m...

Replacement carbs?

Read the various comments on the subject of carbs with interest, and have never been able to grasp exactly why some people insist on OE type carbs, which in most cases dont work that well, and often wear out very quickly (Amal and Bing springs to mind here). An efficient carb is something that seems...

Re: TLR Carbie

The carb kit pictured is from B&J racing in the US, but I was told by OKO Aus that they can help with a kit for the TLR, however when I asked for further details they were unable to help.

Re: 89 Honda RTL 250S

Other than the obvious differences such as the mag side cases, and different kickstart mechanism the RTL motors are pretty much identical to the TLR 250. However later ones as fitted to disc brake bikes have different crankcases, and a slightly bigger clutch. The later motors can be easily recognise...
