  1. Hi luckydim, In my opinion, this Amal is one of the better slow action throttles, I've got it fitted to my 2016 4T. It's aluminium not plastic and transforms the bike.
  2. Hi Carlos, not sure if mines ever been changed so assuming its original factory fill. But I do find the forks to be soft for my tender 17.5 stone frame, so i'm going to try 10w, thinking the original was probably 5w. If its no better, probably going to go for the stronger spring option.
  3. Thanks thall1, I've seen the UK manual but the oil value is in a mm measurement , I was after a fluid value i.e. How many cc or ml per leg. Or do you mean millilitres not mm ??
  4. Sorry if I'm duplicating a thread, I have searched first, I was sure I'd found an entry where someone had converted the measured value into a quantity per leg. Well I couldn't find it so can anyone help with the per leg quantity of fork oil. Never feel as sure I've got it right with the measurement as I do with a quantity value.
  5. I ve got a pair of Domino levers, just put a full new set of springs in and a new Venhill cables on order. The full set is on advice, also a good start point to work from.
  6. b40r, Bought it as a renovation project for winter so haven’t ridden it in anger , just pottered up the drive twice on it before I stripped it. The clutch was difficult to say the least. Im just rebuilding her, hence the questions. Ive oiled the cable, cleaned the mechanism inside the clutch case and cleaned , decontaminated the plates. Ive been advised to use a light gear oil, 75w!!!! What do you use? The clutch basket fingers are quite notched, will I be ok grinding the ridges off, I mean with a Dremmel and gently ?
  7. b40rt, Thanks for that in depth reply, 😆😆😆😆 Only joking just asking before I make a decision.
  8. Sorry it’s a TL 320.
  9. I know there’s already chat and opinions from some time ago about these, but anymore up to date info from peoples experience since the last threads. Thanks guys.
  10. Thanks guys , came apart in the end.
  11. Thanks Martin, When I split it which crankcase do you leave the gearbox in, flywheel side or clutch side, or will it not sit in one? Thanks.
  12. Ok chaps, Just about to split my 1982 TL 320 for the first time, plenty of experience of Spanish twinshocks but not Rotax motors. So rather than just go at it I thought I'd canvas opinion about what to watch out for and basics, i.e. which case to leave the box in, etc, etc. Thanks all.
  13. Fourex, did you ever get round to choosing a Pernod blue, if so which one did you pick. Was it a good match. Thanks.
  14. Thanks motoswm (Martin) , be ringing you soon to get some bits.
  15. Thanks all, heat gun and even pressure released it, it’s off. But strange to then find an external crank bearing !! I take it there’s also an internal main bearing.
