  1. Hi All, Can a spilt in the outer [foral] be repaired and can I change outers so that the repaired fork can be put on the spring side only side and use the better outer for the damping side? Thanks P.S. I have seen some reference to conventional fork conversions. Is this hassle free or do brakes, wheels [and obviously triple clamps] need changing?
  2. Sorry Basil I missed your reply way back then - ended up buying a complete linkage and shock [mine was blown] and replaced the lot.
  3. It might be sucking a little gearbox oil through the inlet tube between the carb and the rotary valve?
  4. Hi All, Anybody have the bearing part number or specs for the spherical jobbie in the lower shock mount? I pretty sure its a 90 280cc.
  5. we shortened the outer and rewelded the arm to be closer to 90 feels better already.

    Swm Tl 125

    Thanks brownie yeah you were right - it was the screw next to the idle it was out half a turn - 1.5 and shes fine - Doh!!
  8. hey Stu got the dimensions of the hemi (spherical ) brg that the shock connects to??
  9. Does that mean you need a different front brake cable ie longer?
  10. No Mate, and on closer inspection found that the repaired one was even further away from the 90 degrees - that at least solved almost no brakes on the 125 but I still wonder if the 1980 design is better.
  11. My 82 has the brake arm out to the front and I don't believe it works as well as this design with the arm at 90 degrees to diameter across the cam and pivot as in the one pictured above. Anybody tried this mod on a latter model and did it help? Cheers Mark

    Hopeful?

    While I'm a fan of standard bikes [read - I couldn't modify them if my life depended on it] the work dave 444 did and his blog site are great stuff and guess what ? he owns it - so he can do whatever he likes to them!!!

    Inlet Rubber

    Martin suggested he had some of the 125 carb to inlet boots. http://www.motoswm.com/
  21. Hi Cant help with codes - heres a look http://www.srcf.fr/forum/t164.html. Would you do me a favour tho and count the teeth on the rear sprocket please?
  22. Thanks Martin, I'll email you to arrange purchase. Is the carb diameter for airbox hose fit the same or smaller carb?
  23. Thanks JBSWM - you have 7 280s? Wow. Still need a 125/175 for the girl for riding junior....so might chase a 125 header pipe.
  24. hi guys, My understanding is that a swm 125 bottom end is identical to a 240/280. have i got that right? We have come across a 125 engine that would be a cheaper option than repairing the gear shaft on our 280 in the short term and eligible for my daughter to ride junior. A couple of questions. does the 280 exhaust fit the 125? Does the 280 top end fit straight on the 125 or do we need to machine the cases? What gearing is used on the 125? Any help appreciated. Cheers Mark
