  1. the smaller main jet would make it worse,it sounds like its running lean. if it ran fine before then it could be fuel starvation, this could be caused by the follwing, blocked fuel tap or filter, sticking float or float needle, tank not venting or carb vent tubes blocked. check these first then try raising the needle to middle clip to run a little richer, (you can also give it a little choke once warmed up as this will enrichen the mixture a little to see what difference it makes) if its better then the jettings needs richening if worse then the oposite
  2. i think you will find that a lot of people on here have had there stators rewound succesfully i do hope so as i have to send off my dads tomorow and its

  5. had exactly the same problem with my brother in laws b25 turned out the liner was moving up and down with the piston when the engine was warmed up as the fit was not too good so i machined the head a fraction so it held the liner down and still sealed the head gasket, the comp ratio was probably raised a tad but it was on a pre 65 metise scramble bike and it went like hell for a 250 after that with no probs just an idea if you cant find anything else wrong.

  7. a large circlip actualy holds the sprocket to the hub the bushes are a sort of cush drive and are knackered by the sounds of it, remove the clip and pull the sprocket off the hub with the bushes attached then hold bushes in a vice and undue the nuts or cut em off to release the sprocket, try david silver spares for new cush drive bushes and nuts hope this helps
  8. borrow a cement mixer, add to tank some sharp pea shingle or old nuts and bolts and wrap the tank in a duvet/bubble wrap and duct tape put it in the mixer start up and go for a cupa or two should take about an hour or so to completely clean the inside
  9. drain your fuel immediately!! i had two tlr hondas with fibreglass seat tank units and i currently race a 1964 twinport cz with a fibreglass tank and the same thing has happened on all three. the high ethanol content of modern fuel eats the resin in fibreglass tanks and dissolves it into the petrol which then stays behind in the carb when the fuel evaporates, i have tried to seal a tlr tank with one of the so called fuel resistant sealers on the market and it didnt work. did the same with the cz tank over christmass using a different product called "flowliner" which i was assured would not be affected by modern fuels but after leaving it to cure for 4 weeks i added a gallon of fuel then within 4 days some of the coating was floating on the surface so i scratched and pulled it all out, the sealers are crap so completly drain the fuel after each meeting and leave the cap off so any left can evaporate its the only safe way ive found.
  10. suffolk stove enamellers near woodbridge are top as chris ginn who runs it is best mates with dave bickers and takes extra care of bike bits , hes done some cz and tlr frames for me plus other bits and the finish is superb for example if its metalic then it gets a clear top coat as well to give a super deep shine, got to ring him tomorow to do some cz hubs. google suffolk stove enamellers for his number, hope this helps
