  1. I’m using silkolene RG2. Thank you lotus. Mines circlips. I’m going to pick up the bushes and fit them. I love the bike and apart from slack in the bushes all I need is a new air filter and the restoration is complete. Even fitted my own home brew easy start kit.

  3. This ones a 2011 so the earliest version.
  4. I can’t get the link to work? Does anyone know the part numbers off hand? I’m thinking I’ll need everything for swingarm and linkage. Ta.
  5. So if I remove the bushes I can take them into the bearing shop to match up?
  6. As it say. I’ve wear in a 2011 linkage. Not stripped nothing yet but what are my options? Top tips on ripping it all apart? Can I use bearings instead of bushes? Am I likely to need pins etc? Do these parts even exist now? If worst comes to the worst, I might see if I can get all the parts re made and to use bearings and seals instead.
  7. I picked up a 2011 tr 280i the other week. I had to do some serious servicing work and it runs sweet and is lovely to ride. It even starts ok but I’m fitting a homemade easy start kit anyway. Its a training toy so not my main ride so I’ll be happy to keep it as they aren’t that common.
  8. Trials boxes just don't see the heat that causes wear and destruction - unless you trail ride them a lot. The Putoline light gear oils and Nano trans are opposite ends of the spectrum in costs but both look after the clutch and gears. ATF to my knowledge is not actually a gear oil as such but more of a hydraulic fluid. Why put that in you pride and joy when a gear oils looks after gears and the clutch?
  9. Make sure you lay the bike over to tip the swarf out the handlebar after drilling. Be careful you don't scratch anything or drill on an angle. You don't want a bar snapping when you land of a big drop!
  10. Sounds like needle sticking open or floats sticking to me. Time to take a look I reckon.
  11. You're bang on BillyT. All kick starts need a good push not a kick. Only crossers seem to actually be kick start in reality. Four strokes also like a good long push with the leg as well and like you say it can't kick back if a full push has been given. One thing that probably is not helping the thread starter is they know have "the fear" and are not actually using a nice technique - very common when you see people with big kick start four strokes. They get a kick back from using a tired leg then end up being more timid and it makes the problem worse. Once you can do the long push down you can adjust the speed of the push so that it turns the motor over just right and boom! It will fire.
  12. I don't know the numbers but have you tried looking on the trials and tribulations site? They list parts and the numbers. Once you know the numbers get them from someone like Hayley Bearings at a fraction of the cost and get double seal ones if possible. Use Silkolene water proof red grease when you reassemble and it will last ages before servicing again. See here http://trialstribulations.net/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=34_66&products_id=909
  13. You have a big piston which needs a good push to get it to go over tdc. Find tdc and then kick it over from just after tdc. This way the piston will be travelling at good speed by the time it comes back up and it won't fire back. Don't go drilling anything at all. If it needed it they would have done it from new as part of the plate. It sounds technique to me.
  14. There you go then. Use a gearbox oil!
  15. Contact a dealer as they will tell you exactly what to use and connect up.
