    K-Scan for Ossa

    Yes, the Factory 300 I had (recently sold) had the Termignoni exhaust. I have a Beta 4T 300 factory also, it is much, much ‘calmer’ than the OSSA. But it also weighs quite a lot more (about what my OSSA Explorer weighs). I thought the Beta was quite similar in reaction to the Explorer. I don’t remember what the Beta has for a throttle.

    As a note, the 300 Factory I owned was VERY aggressive. I used the ‘slow’ map switch position, changed to slow throttle and installed one tooth larger countershaft sprocket to tame it down for my ‘intermediate’ skills. I am not sure how much difference between the factory and standard 300 models.
  3. Thanks, it does look like the FD460 or EBC shown
  4. Anyone know what other bikes use the same front brake pads as the 15 Factory 300? They do not have locating pins, but rather rounded areas that lock into the caliper.
  5. The bushes I’ve seen have part numbers on them from the manufacturer (Not OSSA). I source them that way and buy them by the 10 pack. I ride in mud a lot and they don’t last long. I have one of the Titainium linkage setups on my Explorer, and it has zerk fittings so I can push fresh grease (I use silicone/teflon) through and (hopefully) push out much of the mud. That helps a lot.

      I just saw this, no idea why I cannot receive messages.   But of course we have talked since this message was sent.

      my garage is coming along, I hope to have to done before TOO long.  My building permit runs out end of the month, and I don’t want to extend it.

    TR280 fuel cap

    Lewisport had a nice alloy one. I have one and it works really well. Darn stocker was a bugger
  10. I’ve found the OSSA injection to work really well. But I also fit a tiny LiPo battery to fire up the fuel pump and wake it up. The factory Easy Start worked pretty well (if the rechargeable battery was replaced/recharged every so often)- but the one I fit also was a quick and dirty diagnostic too, plus if you run out of fuel it would prime it right away.

    The software was freely shared by OSSA even when they were still active. (The owner says they are making e-bikes now, would Iike to start motorcycles again. But I’ll believe that when I see it).

    Looks great! My understanding is the biggest issue with the OSSA gearbox in general is if it has improper shimming. They are sort of time consuming to properly shim (so I understand, I’ve never done it).
