  10. I Knew It Wouldn't Take Long!

    Hi Trialsfun My bike came with the 159 airbox so Im not sure if it makes a difference, I was told they are sort after so not cheep ! unless you have a lucky find, but if your bike runs well i would keep it the way it is. I think i use about 10 % of what my bike is capable of ........... But i am working on that BR
  11. I Knew It Wouldn't Take Long!

    My Bike ran well with the Mikuni i was told it was from the 70s ....... But like i said it ran well. Thats the set up i run with the 199B style air fillter, yes my bash plate is from Todotrials easy to order you can email them in English ( nice and friendly to deal with ) they send you bank info ( its in a big city so i needed to search for the right branch ) and you just send them the money and it arrives in just over a week, i got a good tip of Ibhbul who makes lots of great posts on here fit a piece of rubber between crank cases and the bash plate. BR
  12. I Knew It Wouldn't Take Long!

    I could never really decide how to set up the bars in clamps on the standard top yokes and i wanted to make the steering feel a bit quicker and feel like it wanted to turn ! i got my rear shocks a bit longer and fitted a michelin front tyre then spotted this top Yoke thinking every little bit helps and for me its feels better. But the best things i have fitted and the things i noticed the most were a new IRC rear tyre and the new style big flat alloy foot rests
  13. I Knew It Wouldn't Take Long!

    Hi Trialsfun The top yoke is really well made, i spotted it being talked about on facebook by some Bultaco riders its made by Gerry Minshall, he had a set at Telford on the Twinshock Trials Championship stand so i could have a good look at it before i spent my money. He has some photos on his facebook page under albums / mobile uploads. BR
  14. I Knew It Wouldn't Take Long!

    I got a chance to get out on my bike at the start of the spring i had fitted some new style foot rest a bit lower and back a bit and i really like the way they feel so much wider to me they are so much easier to stand on, they are the big alloy new style ones my bike had had the original foot pegs moved up and back so moving them down and back a bit was quite a difference. i also fitted some new Domino levers which i find easier to reach. looking forwards to seeing photos of your bikes as you rebuilds progress. BR
  15. I Knew It Wouldn't Take Long!

    Hello Model80 I have a 199A it came with an old Mikuni and the older style air box off a 159 which is bigger and helps the engine breath i also replaced the old Mikuni because it would flood if engine was not running. Every one that has a go say how smooth and soft it runs at the bottom which make easy for me to hold on to, till its about 1/2 open then its still smooth but getting really strong and mean........... But a lot of fun I forgot to say i fitted a Dellorto PHBH28BS ! and a Billit Parts adapter so it fits to the air filter rubber hose
