Re: ty 250 mono aftermarket parts

Interesting points of view. I dont have any problem whatsoever with modern day £10K+ "P65/TS" bikes, but feel they should be used in a specials class, as they are far more capable than anything vaguely authentic, and tend to mean much harder sections, that some riders on authentic P65/TS f...

Re: TLR Engine Reassembly

If thats the case then why not investigate the possibility of a slip stone (as suggested earilier), or simply replace the damaged parts?

Re: ty 250 mono aftermarket parts

I would agree 100% that there are an awful lot of bikes which are not being used. However in the unique situation we have in the UK (where there are no rules), its pretty much a waste of time competing on something like a Bultaco or Ossa, when you may have to compete against brand new TS bikes fitte...

Re: TLR Engine Reassembly

If you are 100% certain the clutch drum is the problem, and are not confident of repairing the damaged tooth, then why not just get a used replacement part?

Re: TLR Engine Reassembly

If you know what tooth is causing the problem, rather then rather than risking more damage by riding as is, would it not be an idea to get a slip stone as I suggested earlier and rectify the problem?

Re: TLR Engine Reassembly

If there is no visual damage on the clutch drum or crank pinion teeth, then I would imagine the noise is coming from inside the cases. Very easy to check this by simply removing the clutch drum, and turning the gear shafts and crank without the drum fitted. If the noise is still there you need to st...

Re: TLR Engine Reassembly

I would imagine that if the noise is bad, that a tooth breaking off is a possibility. You have 2 choices, the first is replace damaged part (or parts) and the second to find out the exact cause of the problem and see if it can be sorted out.

Re: ty 250 mono aftermarket parts

I wonder when those running national events catering for older riders on current bikes, as well as supposedly for TS and P65, will take on board the fact that such events are meant to be fun? Those responsible for this event seemed very keen on hammering home the nails in the coffin of the series, a...

Re: TLR Engine Reassembly

If you can see that the tooth is damaged, that will be the problem certainly, and its something that used to affect new Beta's, and was caused by swarf not being cleaned out properly during production, and getting picked up in the clutch drum teeth. Way to deal with this is to use a slip stone on th...

Re: TY250a,b,c,d exhaust header pipe.

Why not make a couple, using a bike to check they are right, advertise on Ebay and see if there is any interest? If there is then make a 100% accurate pattern and see if you can find someone to make a small batch out of 1.2mm stainless tube?
