  1. Send me your email address and I will send you a pdf version of the hand book. It's not a workshop manual but it has exploded diagrams of everything and about 8 pages at the back with specs and service info. cheers
  2. Good to hear. Mine had been sitting for 30 years and had a few issues. So I ended up getting a Mikuni and it runs like a watch now.
  3. This is the carb that came on my cub, I am pretty sure it's the same carb you're talking about. Hopefully these shots help.
  4. I have a pair of shoes that were relined by Saftek, they made a massive difference.
  5. That was a nice mixture of bikes.
  6. I also had a miller sump guard fitted when i bought the bike. I can only echo what everyone else is saying, it works well protecting the bike, but you can't use it on a bike stand. So I ended up getting one from Chris at Meriden Off Road. So far it's been great, it slots right on, it's stable on a bike stand and seems to do a good job protecting the cases. What more can you ask for for under 40 quid. You can see it here.
  7. Chris at Meriden Off Road advised me to use straight 30 for everything on a cub. This is what I've always used and my cub runs beautifully
  8. I haven't used them myself, but http://trickytrials.thetao.co.uk/ told me they can rebuild a 348 engine no problem. Might be worth a call.
  9. It looks well cared for!
  10. Less throttle maybe
  11. Inside your forks there will be aluminium pistons. These fit inside the stanchions and the tolerance is small. They tend to develop small hairline cracks on the surface, then they swell and jam inside the stanchions. I managed to source some NOS parts from Spain, but even though they were in a sealed bag, they too were cracked. Long story short I managed to reduce the diameter of these aluminium pistons slightly and they now work perfectly Have fun!
  12. Knowing my old man it could be in his hand and he wouldn't hear it.
  13. My old man recently had issues with his barn being broken into (luckily no bikes were taken). But he has since installed an alarm, which contains a sim card. The alarm unit is hidden and once the beam is broken it doesn't make any noise, it just calls his phone. Giving him time to either call the police or disturb them himself.
  14. On a side note, how do you find the heavyweight forks? My cub has metal profile forks, but I’m considering sourcing an original pair of heavyweight forks for it instead.
  15. I couldn't agree more. One of the things I have always loved about trials is the fact that the average rider can service and repair their bike at home in the shed or garage. Cars have moved on so much that you need a lot of specialist equipment and an in-depth knowledge of computers to get most things done. When something does go wrong it usually isn't repaired, it is unbolted and a whole new unit is put back on. In terms of future developments I am sure they will continue to increase usable power delivery and shave weight. Then one day someone will come out with an idea we never knew we needed and change everything.
