  1. Hello Listerjag, You ask a lot, and I know that is what Maxton requires but I doubt you'll get all those dimensions and weights until you do it yourself on your own bike when it arrives. Even if someone did post up the info your after, would you really want to rely on that for being accurate when you are going to pay approx $1000 NZ for Maxtons delivered to your door, I wouldn't. Wait until the bike arrives.
  2. Cyclesavant in the US has the right side nut. https://www.ebay.com.sg/itm/Montesa-Cota-Enduro-Cappra-OEM-lock-Nut-p-n-0092-10020-NOS-49-123-250-360-Impala-/293953595390 A google search of left side nut 2160.03703 showed one sold or finished on ebay just before christmas, keep searching Left side spring washer part # is 0093.514, right side washer is 0093.110. good luck.

    Yes definitely Mahle, I just checked an old motor of mine.
  4. There's not a lot out there that I'm aware of, Robert Cochrane in New Zealand has some bits, his site as follows........... https://kawasakikt.tripod.com/FREDKT.html Google searches of "KT parts" will often take you to someone on ebay that has bits for sale, if you know the Kawasaki part # of what it is you want, type that into google and see what comes up. A couple of places that 'might' have some NOS are......... https://vintagekawasaki.com/webshop/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=46_426 https://www.ebay.com/str/MachIVMotors/NOS-Kawasaki/_i.html?_pgn=73&rt=nc&_storecat=4738823015 Our Australian KT's did not have turn indicators, blinkers as we like to call them, here's a picture of the blanked off switch block on my '76 KT.
  5. These parts diagrams might be helpful when trawling the net as it gives the part numbers, dimensions and number required. Note also that only bolt # 33 appears to be specific to the 348/349 as it starts with 51. Bolt # 32 would appear to be a carry over from the 247 as it starts with 21, bolt # 31 starting with 73 is from the Cappra I think etc,etc. Here's bolt # 34 on cyclesavant's ebay site, $7.50 is a bit steep, but he is open to offers. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Montesa-Cota-335-Engine-Case-Cover-Screw-p-n-6660-11201-61M-1987/303822271821?hash=item46bd37f54d:g:E-sAAOSwWzRf41ij
  6. If you left click on the brochure pic it should enlarge enough so you can see the bracket on the left side of the swing arm on that shot of the plastic bash plate. Otherwise here's a pic of the mk 2 side stand bracket, it looks the same as the mk 1 brochure. PS: Search the Ossa forum here regarding rear brake cable arrangement, it's another of those odd things that Ossa did, like 12mm axles. I'm sure I read someone asking a similar question in the last year or two and the responses and photos made it clear. Venhill make and sell the rear brake cable.
  7. Not an expert on Ossa by any means but I do have a mk 2 and have gathered some info and pics over the years, your bike looks like a good starting point for a resto. Your bike certainly looks like a MK1 due to flanged Amal carb and the solid fork bottoms. Have a look at the attached brochure shot that shows a side stand for MK1. I think your round rear frame hoop over the guard might be bent down, but could be just the pic angle or those universal alloy guards. Attached is some pics of my rear frame hoop, you got to remember that the seat is attached by two bolts that go through the rear guard and the flat frame hoop. Hope this is helpful.
  8. Left Trials maybe early '76 to dabble in MX. Maybe back to Trials '81 or '82 through to '95 or '96. then back again 2014. Something like that as I recall.
  9. Good times indeed David, those Montesa pics are from Biddaddaba late March or early April 1974, you might be amongst that group at riders briefing? The bloke sitting backwards on the Sherpa is Rod Maclean, I think that was a Logan River Trial possibly at Mt Cotton ? Can't remember what shocks I had on the TY, but I do remember the laid down mod was done at the Motorcycle/Mower shop on Logan Rd Mt Gravatt by their mechanic who I believe was Steve Hope but I didn't know that at the time. He did a good job by also welding in gussets to prevent the rear downtubes from bending, thanks Steve.
  10. I never experienced that problem with it jumping out of 2nd gear, probably because I couldn't wind it up to the point of needing 2nd plus I was only 12. Can't help myself here,I'm sorry, found some pics of a young fourex riding his new 123 around the back yard the day it arrived plus some pics from my 1st Trial on the same bike. I think I looked p****d off because I didn't like having photos taken as a kid, I don't think I'd realised at that time what a dud of a bike I had. But it's some pics of a brand new Cota 123. See smiley face once on a TY 175.
  11. The 1st Cota 123 was the biggest heap of ***** ever made, I've been scarred for life after my Dad bought me one at 12 yrs of age (brand new early '70s), even at this young age I knew there was something wrong with this bike, it was so gutless. Thank god he bought me a TY 175 when they were released, but I've still got the Mental Scars of that Cota 123. Beautiful looking bike for a collection not something to ride. PS: Not to mention that 20/17" wheel combo, welded clutch and front brake lever mounts to the bars,no chain tensioner and not enough power to pull the skin off a rice pudding. Awful, awful.

    Please tell me if I'm a duckhead or missing something here, but why couldn't you put the same oil in the clutch and gearbox like we put in our modern bikes that serves both, something like Putoline GP 10 or Motul Transoil as an example. Just asking because I'm both confused and curious. Cheers.
  13. Thanks for posting that, much appreciated. I have a computer illiterate friend over here in Australia restoring a T350 Piuma and he needs a white tank, if anyone has one to sell, please let me know. Sorry Tom !
  14. I love that HFS stuff in my Fantic 300 forks. Nice Ossa !
  15. hello, i have an italjet piuma 350 and i'm looking for the parts manual, do you know where i could find it? thank you very much.
