    Majesty 200

    Hi everyone, I have the opportunity to purchase a very original full size Godden chrome framed Majesty in Australia I have been waiting a long time to get a Majesty 250 or 320 but the chances of finding one of those in Aus is nil so a good clean 200 might be my only choice. I have had many TY's in the past and find both the 250 and 175's have their virtues and their faults, although i'm 100kgs I can ride both competitively and we don't ride many hill climbs here in Aus so the little 175 is not to underpowered. Questions for the brains trust: was the 200 just a bored out 175 or did Shirty do any porting and jetting etc:? Is there any real changes in power between a standard TY175 and a 200? I believe the swinging arm was made slightly longer on the Majesty similar to current Ty175 recommendations is this so or with the other majesty frame configurations does it handle a lot better that a TY175? I know the 250 Majesty is a leap forward from an original 250 is this the case for a 200? Thanks for any assistance you may have.
  5. What Vertigo do you have?
  6. Hey all, I realize this is pretty generic and it could be a host of items but having an issue with my 2014 Xride (290 trials motor). I was having issues with the clutch sticking or not engaging, it had sat for a few months checked the reservoir and it was all the way to the bottom low. So filled it up and bleed it for quite awhile with no luck. Usually it breaks loose after a bit and seems to work. So decided to take off the slave cover, cracked the upper bolt just a titch and buddy heard something click, and the clutch works. Great, throw it on a trailer and off we go to ride. Clutch seems to be working better then it has in months. Rode about 30 mins and 1/2 mile and waiting for a buddy to shoot up a little hill, bike is in neutral and idling and it starts clattering pretty loudly. I thought maybe a rock got under the skid and shut it off and couldn't see anything externally. Start back up and it's rattling away. Put it in gear and still making noise, tap on everything to see if anything is loose or sticking and nothing. Horrible racket. It's louder when in neutral, put it in gear and let the clutch out it gets quieter but still pretty loud. Rode it back to the trailer and it shifts fine, revs fine, ride fine just clacking and rattling away. Got back the shop and another buddy is adamant that the bottom end is gone. So pop the cylinder off and everything feels normal, nothing crazy loose. Check the flywheel nut and it looked tight and in place. Nothing odd under the clutch plate either but did not take the clutches out. Coolant was a bit low but unsure how that would factor in at all. Seems odd to have the clutch issues, then fixed, then the noise but I can't quite connect it all. Getting some gaskets to put the head back on and taking to the local shop but would like to hear anyone's thoughts on what might have came loose? I have read on other noises but most get better when pulling the clutch in.

    250 4rt crank

    Ok I get it now, it's a roller bearing and the inner race is on the crank, can certainly hear the knocking in the video. I thought it would be a ball race like the old motors hence the Loctite suggestion. Not that many options as it would prove difficult to remove the inner race from the shaft without damaging it although I've seen similar drop off getting quick heat into them. It may be worth measuring up the race or take the crank into your local bearing factor to measure it to see if they can get you anything similar but it may be that Honda have their own unique sizes. As you say, probably best to try a new roller first before going down the rabbit hole...

    250 4rt crank

    Thanks for the help, I’m going to put the new bearing in and see how the crank sits and judge any play, unfortunately due to the make up the loctite won’t be an option. I’ll see if I can sort out the YouTube link and post as well 👍 edited post with link 👍

  11. As A practice thing try several rocks spaced just under bike length apart and hop onto each one dropping front wheel then going again. should help you feel how you can keep front wheel in the air with small amount of throttle
  12. Jimmy, thanks for the advice. My 4RT repsol is al late 2017 one. I am going to try your advice wensday. Greathings Luc

    250 4rt crank

    hate to be a spoilsport, but you cant buy the inner race for the bearing, you have to buy a new crank i found this out when mine started to vibrate, (must admit it had run fine for a full 12 months) but when i stripped engine i found no inner race had been fitted to crank bike had been running with just the support of the small needle roller in generator. much to my disgust honda completely rejected my request for goodwill warranty,
  14. Especially with the earlier ones but less so with latter ones I found you have to keep the throttle open a bit on landing the front wheel. You can control the weight of the wheel coming down as much on the throttle as the brakes. Having ridden 4rt for a while now and on a 301 now I find I have to use the brake more as latest bikes have less engine braking . This helps though on slippery downhill cambers and drop as the front seems less weighted

    HEBO ZONE 5 VISOR

    I bought a Hebo Zone 5 lid last year. I didn’t even know it had the visor thingy until I was fiddling whilst in a queue and it came down - it was like “what the hell is this?”!!! Good innovation though and really like the fit of the helmet. Recommended.
  16. Did you then lacquer it? Only asking as about to paint a tank (to save the £250 I’ve just been quoted...).
  17. Sounds lovely & brings a smile on my face (just the look off the bike at this moment) is just what it is at the moment. I hope that it will change and that i be able to ride the 4rt the more are less like i ride my Beta 250🤤 Practicing at wensday & friday. Took free from work to ride 👍👍

    1978 frame colour

    The frame color shiukd be RAL 3020,. To the forj the very early SWM had 34mm stanchions not 35mm. You might measure the triple clamps / yokes which diameter they supply. The sign is the Marzocchi logo so it is a Marzocchi triple clamp or yoke and such a fork you need too if you want to stay original. The Betor fork do fit with the Marzocchi fork yoke / triple clamp too, if both are made for 35mm on diameter. I have switched to a Betor fork with Marzocchi triple xlamp aka yokes which lowers the front a bit and deliver a bit more overrun which is good for turning in my personal opinion.

    1978 frame colour

    That would be good thanks. It's some random 35mm forks that's on the bike but I'm 95% certain it's the original yokes that's on the bike. There's a funny logo on them that I haven't seen before, I'll try to get a pic of it.
  20. It could be an air leak or venting/fuel issue.

  23. Hi Stew,

               Even Hebo dealers didn't know how to do it so I Emailed Hebo in Spain ( in Spanish). and they sent me the details.   If you send me your email address I will forward you a copy.

    250 4rt crank

    How much wear are we taking about? Does the new bearing just drop on to the shaft / did you have to pull the old one off or did it come off easily? If it feels like just a transition fit then Loctite 641 Bearing Fit would be worth a go. P.S. You could upload the video to Youtube and put the link on here Craig
  25. How did you sort the visor change
  26. What about the other oils? Any info would be great
