  1. Advice for a beginner...

    You had a Pinky 20 years ago. Get another ty mono. Brilliant bikes.
  2. Jordi training in BC

    Nice video, enjoyed that, looked like the "trainees" did too.
  3. YAMAHA have a new TY

    Call me a Luddite, but i think it sounds horrific, and looks awful. But then i don't even like water cooled engines, nor FI.....
  4. Do I keep it or sell it?

    Ditto here, my brief period is early in the morning, prior to 8am when it really starts to get hot. Evening before it gets dark is beer o' clock.
  5. Snow

    That 4 letter word beginning with S.... Oh, how i don't miss an English winter.....

    • FOR SALE
    • USED

    Hi, thought i'd offer these for sale on here to fellow enthusiasts prior to putting them on The Bay. Finally got hold of some plastic 3.5L tanks and an order put in to Shedworks for some tank/seat shelters. So i'm selling my 5L steel tanks and seat units to recuperate some costs. These are to be sold as a set, ie yellow tank and seat unit together and the blue tank sold with the seat unit. Tanks and seats will not be sold seperately. Paint was done professionally about 15 months ago, obviously usual trials wear and tear, but general good, smart overall condition. Complete with caps, and one year old Yamaha RXS 3 position petrol taps. These face the opposite way to a stock tap, but do not affect flow in any way. I also have another set of Speedblock decals for the tanks. Seats were professionally recovered in black, and the seat bases have had a lot of time put into them with filler and sanding by the same guy who did the tanks. They are now located by s/s button heads (supplied) into the stock rubber grommet brackets (not supplied) and one off machined captive alloy threaded shouldered nuts. I will be in the UK between April 11th and May 11th, so if you are interested, contact me asap, and arrange delivery/pick up during these dates. I'm over on a family holiday and will be bringing these with me from Thailand in our suitcases. And hopefully returning to Thailand with my plastic tanks and Shedworks tank shelters. Price is per tank/seat unit set Regards, Mike.

  7. Ty 175 to pump or not to pump

    Not to pump. Pumps have no place on a proper trials bike used purely off road. Petroil mix only.
  8. BOOTS!

  9. Ty mono pro monty stainless steel

  10. 1974 Montesa Cota 247

    1 option - buy another crank. 2 option - buy another engine or bottom end. Last option - repair what you've got. That mainshaft is a mess.
  11. TY250 Mono Rear Rim

    Paul @ CTC in Cambs, England is selling new Z spokes and some very nice looking 32 hole rear rims. Not cheap, but quality never is.
  12. TY175 Frame Strap/Brace

    Yes, drive side, in this case the L/H side of the frame will take more stress and strain than the non drive side, in this case the R/H side of the frame.
  13. M49 advice please!

    Just had a look at that ad. I concur with everybody so far - that is outrageous breaking that bike.
  14. Ulf Karlsson

    Thanks for that. A good read, as is a lot of stuff on that site.
  15. Tiger Cub Modified Gearbox Cover

    Lovely job. Nice interesting read and great photos. Shorten the gear lever split clamp allen head so no thread is protruding. Replace the 3 'orrible c'sunk crossheads with c'sunk allens. Sorry for being pedantic....
