  1. Hi Titch, just been and measured a pair I have in the shed, they are 565mm long. Are you hoping to find some off a later bike with 30mm daimeter stanchions to fit the TYsliders? as I don't think the originals are available any more.
  2. yes had a similar problem with a 175, the wee o ring did the trick.
  3. nice work there buddy. I built a trials bike out of a xl200r about 10 years ago, as regards the suspension, I just backed all the settings to as soft as they would go and it worked realy well.
  4. Hi Fordi, always buy mine from UK. They are cheep, but the cartage is high, so best to get a few sets as they weigh bugger all. You'll then have spares or some to sell on and cover some costs.
  5. Can't help with details, but that is a stunning bike. How does it ride?

    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.

    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.
  10. As Swept section says about the self tapping screw method......done this many times and never failed.
  11. jimyam...can you get it welded?
  12. 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.
  13. sorry Mike, photo bucket sabotaged my photo's
  14. I agree....what a stunning bike
  15. it only needs one more inch. that's what all the girls say Turbo.....
