    Boyesen Reeds, Worthwhile?

    Great info. If I recall (reed block not in sight), there is a rubber coating on reed block’s area where the reeds close. And you sand this away? Just want to be sure! Also, as far as I know, original reeds are in my TY175C Thanks!

    Boyesen Reeds, Worthwhile?

    Hey fellows. Fitting new TDR reeds and the RD350 Intake Manifold onto my 175C. What mods are considered good on the existing TY175C Airbox for better air flow. Jetting issues from the mods? I have a 27.5 pilot jet available to replace the 25. And,....any tips on sandpaper-ing the reed cage ? thanks.

    Inlet Rubber Ty175

    Excellent tips. Any issues with the carb hitting up against anything? Any pictures since this was posted? thanks.
  4. Hi Kevin J

    I have a frustrating seep of oil from the left fork's Special Bolt after a fork rebuild. 

    I just can't get it tight enough. Can you please describe the tool you fabricated to assure a tight fit?

    thank you kindly.

    240Pro. No spark. Flywheel removal?

    Hi fellows. Fitted the blue Ducati Energia coil as per the attached diagram. Still no spark and now considering removal of flywheel to dig deeper. Any tips on flywheel removal operation (standard r-h threads)? Anything else to consider or look for? Thanks.

    240 coil

    We have spark! After basically rebuilding the whole stator and re-wireing plus new fasteners and a Ducati Energia CDI....we have a nice spark. Now a few fitment issues and she ought to go. Thanks to all the inputs from all of you! attached a nice flywheel timing picture

    240Pro. No spark. Flywheel removal?

    Yep got you. It’s a methodical learning experience for my son and I, who are new at this. And, if nothing else, our experience will serve as a guide for the next person that’s interested and learning to deal with vintage bikes of this sort.

    240Pro. No spark. Flywheel removal?

    Flywheel is off. The stator area was coated with a powdery-like corrosion. The plate mounting screws all needed to be extracted with success. The coils’ M4 (very hard metal!) screws all need to be drilled out, proving to be rather difficult. LT coil ohms reading is 693 Pick-up ohms is 40. Basically the stator plate needs to be rebuilt and rewired. Any ideas on removing these small screws (even a new left hand bit wouldn’t penetrate) and ohm readings? thank you.

    Fantic 200 Spark Issue

    Ever get it situated? We are similarly working out a 240Pro no sparker. Any pointers from your experience appreciated.

    Thanks for all the tips. Excellent info. Thank you F240Motor. We have the puller ordered and as soon as we pull the f/w we will update our progress.

    ScotTaco. I figured what you meant. Thanks for your help!!!!

    Ok. Thanks ScotTaco. I’d appreciate a picture of the hook up. Gracias.

    Hi there. What automotive coil did you use and how did you fit it on the TY? thank you. Hope yours is “firing on all cylinders “.

    Brilliant. Thanks.

    240Pro. No spark. Flywheel removal?

    This is used in lieu of a typical puller? If so, I can’t visualize how it pulls.

    240Pro. No spark. Flywheel removal?

    Thanks F.240Motor. Yep wires are very brittle. May be the culprit. Do you have a picture of the homemade holder? thank you.

    240Pro. No spark. Flywheel removal?

    Thank you F.156! and those readings are taken ground to red, ground to green? Just to clarify. Appreciate your help.

    240Pro. No spark. Flywheel removal?

    Thanks. Did so. When checking Green to Ground no resistance. Red to Ground no resistance. So problem is in wires, connections or the stator coil if I understand the system. . Cheers

    95 Fantic Section Stator Test?

    Hi fellows. Interesting. We have Fantic 240Pro with same issue(s). Connected a new DUCATI Energia blue coil and.....no spark. Is there a way to see if perhaps this coil is bad? And from the stator comes 3 wires: Green, Black,Red. What would be correct ohm readings of these wires? And are they measured against each other or to chassis ground? thank you.
  21. motosolex

    240 coil

    Thank you Fourex. Well, swapped around the wires to no avail. Used the Ohm meter to measure wires from magneto on the red wire to frame and green wire to frame. No resistance/ continuity on either. The black wire from the mag did show continuity. Can anyone confirm or indicate correct readings? ————————- We wonder now if there is a wire, pickup or stator issue???? Any Flywheel removal techniques or pointers? Thanks
  22. motosolex

    240 coil

    And of course Yellow wire still grounded to frame?

    240 coil

    Will rewire tomorrow. Thanks for the astute observations.
  24. motosolex

    240 coil

    Here’s what we’ve seen thus far. Subject to confirmation. We hooked ours up accordingly. Still no spark. May need to dig into the stators. Any tips on flywheel removal?

    My first Fantic!

    Hi fellows. Got a Ducati blue coil to replace the Dansi. Can you please specify or post the schematic for the Ducati’s leads: 2 greens 1 red 1white Thank you kindly
