  1. The OWLS MOTOR CLUB running an extra trial to fill a vacant date this sunday. Its in weald village,just south of Sevenoaks,kent. Quite a low entry so far, so we could take some day entries if you are looking for a ride this weekend in the southeast. ACU permit so you will need an ACU licence. get back to me for more info!
  2. TY250 A points setting

    when refitting the flywheel, be prepared to push the points open with a screwdriver or similar so as to not damage the heel of the points. points get ruined by the f/w centre being forced past the moving arm of the points.
  3. Mar rear brake axle

    look up tophat bushes nylon bushing etc on ebuy. lots of variants. measure your frame hole and brake pedal for sizes.
  4. Venhill Cables

    They work from forty year old records. Does your bike still have the high and wide handlebars they used in the 1970s, and still have the original nippon levers?? Is the front wheel the right way around?
  5. £800.00 GBP per ride

    Most riders lose more than that on new bought bikes!
  6. Question of which i don`t expect a correct answer too

    looks like Cafe Racer to me.
  7. 80 TL320 Seat

    should be like the pictures above then.
  8. 80 TL320 Seat

    Is it metal or plastic tank. the fitting of them is different. my 180 is metal, but yours could have been altered.
  9. Tight creaky clutch

    Pull RH cover and pull out push rod, The shaft it is in should have a seal in the end,remove it and see if some one dropped the ball in the gap behind the seal. remove the plate on the clutch cover and remove the adjuster and then push the other half of the rod right through to see if the ball is in the middle. if not, find a ball same as rod diameter . (cycle shop?)
  10. Help need to identify age, engine size etc...

    That makes it the 350 (310) then. hope you have got a strong grip.
  11. Help need to identify age, engine size etc...

    Because the paint on the tank has no bearing on the capacity of the engine. Same with the frame number. The engine number would be more useful.
  12. Tight creaky clutch

    The lever at the motor end is much too far in . I suspect the ball bearing that sits between the pushrod halves is missing. It might be sitting behind the little seal in the out put shaft.
  13. eBay ' universal ' brake levers

    They snap like raw carrots, levers and perch's.
  14. 349 forks.

    Loosen the yolks and compress a few times. re-tighten without twisting.Infact loosen everything,wheel,mudguard etc.

  16. mar clutch

    damn, thats ugly!!
  17. mar clutch

    when I bought my first one brand new in 1974 it had individual split pins, not wire. I don't bother with anything, not had one come loose, but bound to get replies saying different now.
  18. Cota 242 throttle needle play

    Does not seem a problem, the clip holds the needle, not the slide.The centre hole needs to be big enough for the cable, with its nipple, to pass through. If the carb is worn out, that is a different issue.
  19. Ariel 350 spark plug

  20. Fantic 300 fuel cap breather

    glad you thought so! your edited post makes sense now.
  21. Fantic 300 fuel cap breather

    a 3/8th pop rivet??
  22. Overheating problem?

    you cooked it. running weak at higher throttle openings. your tittle answered your own question.
  23. New to Well back to trials

    Also AMCA.
  24. Cheap as Chips!

    Glad I am this side of the border, not yours.
  25. Front tubeless tyres

    Rear tyres only go straight. Front tyres go left, hard left, straight, right, hard right. That's when they get pushed off the rim at low pressures.
