    Any crank rebuilding shop should be able do the job quickly on a single cylinder motor but, if someone '' played '' around and bent the end of the crank trying to take the flywheel off, that's another story. Guy

    Ty 250 R mono cylinder bore

    I looked for a long time for an oversize TY mono piston in Canada and the US, I found a 3rd os with ring that if i remember cost me $215.00 US I still have it on the shelve even if I sold the bike. I think it's a relic. Guy

    Evo 250 Clutch

    That's what I did with my levers, the reason I did it was to help me with control. It worked for me. Guy
  7. Now that you feel confortable and relax on the bike, practice is fun, so improvement come easy. Guy
  8. Hang on there, bread slowly look at the bike and make the adjustment that feel right for you and find a place to practice where you can ride until you are confortable. If the bike still scared you after say 4 or 5 hours of practice, than rethink your options. Guy

    Yamaha Ty80 Carb Settings

    I don't think carb cleaner is that effective anymore, maybe an ultrasound cleaning would help. Guy

    Twin shock project

    To add to David's post, the effect of the modified flywheel is not only felt in acceleration, you also feel a difference when you shut the throttle down. I tested my bike with a B model flywheel ( extra heavy ) and one with no ring back to back on the same sections, riding in the parking lot was not convincing, but when you get in a tight section, than you feel the difference. I have to say that I use the clutch more with the '' no weight '' flywheel. Guy

    Twin shock project

    I've also been riding my TY ( s ) without flywheel like Tony 27 for the last 10 years. I remember marking the first one I took off just in case I would not like the feeling, never bothered after that. Not all riders like the feeling, the Bultaco guys in particular. Guy

    Twin shock project

    I replace the original head gasket with a thin aluminium one that I made from the original model, it does change the compression. I ran that for a while with no issue. Guy
