    ty175 carbie

    Thanks Bmonk, I'll grab 1 when the dealer opens in New Year.....or will any 'o' ring the right size stand up to the fuel?

    Yeh, does it hot or cold. If turn throttle gently in lower gears up to 1/4 open, then motor revs cleanly, but go any more and will balk.

    ty175 carbie

    Hey 175 guru's, just getting a 1976 up and running again. Starts first kick and ticks over like a swiss watch....but open throttle past 1/4 and it just dies out. Is this the classic "o" ring around the main jet problem, or something else. Carb has been stripped and carbie clean/airline blown out.

    No Snap!

    that's definitly not right, I would be giving carb a full dismantle and make sure all jets and passages are clear...plus what's the state of the air cleaner? exhaust decoke may help too. Tidy bike, hope you can get it sorted and enjoy some classic trials.

    Tiger Cub Modified Gearbox Cover

    I'm with Stan on this....can't see any advantage with the cut down case....just seems like a lot of work for no gain and not so good looking in my oppinion too.

    no cut. change the head angle for TLR200/250

    not sure that's right Allan......but either way, cutting the frame is WAAAAAAYYYyyyyyy cheeper than parallel trees.

    Kevlar Clutch Plates

    know what your saying nigel....but if you get the motors working properly, then a decent clutch is worth the effort.

    Steepening the steering head angle - TLR 200

    didn't lengthen my swinger, but know some folks do as the front end does lift easyly on steep climbs. I don't have a problem with that as I move my body around to compensate, depends on your riding style.
