  1. Is that the original torpedo looking thing?
  2. You may well struggle finding an airbox lid for a 2000 model as they were on the side. I believe like this for only 2 years. You never know what e-bay might turn up though. Richard Allen had my old 2000 a while back, but have no idea if he still has any parts left !
  3. Buy a set of conventional forks off Richard Allen or someone. I never ever got to the bottom of the leaking seals on my old Climber and in the end they were like trigger's broom. They weren't the best of forks to start with! All this is assuming you are rebuilding to ride it and not restore.
  4. FM450 is a 240 pro isn't it?
  5. Is it just me or does that have a Kawasaki look to it
  6. 2009 was the big change, from Rev to Evo.
  7. If you're in Surrey you must be near me! Nr Weybridge. My local club, Thames MCC, have a twinshock class in all our trials plus the monthly Star Group also have a twinshock class. I too have only been back after a near 30 year break for a couple of years now. Just sold my modern 300 4t Beta and bought a 240 Fantic to relieve my youth!
  8. Well the Elite line at the Mike Kemp this past weekend Chris Koch won on 49 and Glyn Ridley was second on 105. Kevin Nolan broke the swing arm on his SWM, hard enough for you? Glyn remarked to me that he didn't think he'd dropped that many marks over the entire KIA champs total!
  9. Works for me too
  10. Silly question, but have you ever checked the points & timing?
  11. A black coloured plug would normally indicate a rich condition.
  12. Air leak somewhere? higher revs and choke required would indicate a weak mixture. What colour was the old plug?
  13. Undid the hose, undid the bolts that hold it to the frame
  14. If you hunt around like I did you may find a cheaper alternative master cylinder. I found that an Aprilia road bike (Brembo) one was the right size with holes in the right places for nearly half the price of the Beta one. £30 odd if I remember correctly
  15. Is it losing water, Darren?
