  1. I need to paint two Cota 247 bodies. I have done it in the past but results were mixed. I want to do this right and finish off with a very hard, fuel proof, KBS Diamond clear coat. But before I get their I need to use the right pre-coat and top coat. I would appreciate suggestions for both pre-coat that will give me a well attached base that I can sand to a good finish and then a sound top coat.
  2. just mount it on same bolts as coil ...make sure it is cleanly earthed, you may need to scrape some paint off
  3. Lovely job, hopefully the love affair can now begin
  4. mjlyam - yes it came back to me and so a revisited the points wire connection and it wasn't properly isolated - fixed that and all good
  5. Hi Daniel Manual says SAE20 or SAE 30 with 190cc per leg - I reckon most people use ATF ( transmission fluid ) which from memory is around 10 wt. Works for me. Message me your email if you want a copy of the manual Cheers Andrew
  6. I pulled all my lighting circuits off years ago but Pink to earth does not sound correct. The circuit is earthed by the points connection to the magneto base
  7. The standard gearing on TLR is too high - put a smaller front sprocket on and second becomes much more tractable and manageable - in fact first is only for slow down hill descents

    Cota 247 Tank

    The kit I mentioned that KBS supply comes with degreaser and yes you need to prepare meticulously

    Cota 247 Tank

    I have used this stuff on many tanks and as long as you prep correctly it works a treat - get the kits for bikes https://www.ebay.com.au/i/272946991608?chn=ps
  10. A rubber mallet or block of wood
  11. No idea what a Reflex is worth - they are more street trail than trials with smaller forks. A real TLR 200 in good nick is worth well over $1,000 - more like $3,000 in the UK
  12. Went to take my 247 for a run today and for the first time in years she wouldn't start. No spark so started working backwards from the cut of switch ...finally removed the low voltage coils and it appears that I have a short circuit to earth. So it looks like a burnt out coil - strange that it got me home without an issue last ride. Does anyone know the correct resistance for the coil?
  13. ThreeBond is your friend ....let it cure at least 24 hours and it lasts years
  14. When I say "original" I mean copy of original - I have a good quality scanned version for 247C and 247T but each page is seperate message me your email and I will send
