    I had 2 ride on a EM lately and I could not get confortable on it. The clutch is, for me, a must. I'm not an expert and I don't want to start a war with the EM owners, but way the Yamaha rider use the clutch make me think that the transition to electric for me is definitely with one. Guy

    Gas for your Beta Evo

    I run Shell Ultra, I empty the hose in my pickup and fill a 20 litre can that I mix with Motul 710 also at 80 to 1. I think the Shell is the same in Ontario as here in Quebec. Guy

    No you don't get it Dan. When I stop at a section, I run around, look at trees, sniff them and, most of the time, go to the next one ! Guy

    Oil change

    I just made the first oil change on my ST 250 15 since I bought the bike used, the book says 450ml ( that's what I added ) but I drained out close to 600 ml. Was it over filled or am I wrong in the quantity I added? The bike ran well before the oil change, no problem with gear change and clutch operation. Guy

    ‘18 popping out of gear

    Dan I've never seen the parts you are modifying but from the drawing you just posted, would'nt it be simpler to machine the shoulder of holding pin so you could slide the spring further in and compensate with a washer outside the indexer ? I have followed your thread with a lot of interest since the beginning, I tip my hat to your patience and the fact you share your find. Guy

    Bolt on footrests

    The footrest position on that 250 is exactly where I fitted mine. I like them there and the bike work well for me. The most important thing is it work well for me Guy

    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
