  1. Fork Oil

  2. Magical fork spring orientation

    Cheers for that 2stroke4stroke. I remember they do tell you to put the tight coils either top or bottom, didn't realise that was the only reason
  3. Fantic 200 Steering Head Bearings

    They don't have a cap as standard, which came as a surprise to me. I got new O-rings (when I replaced my bearings) as they was totally squashed into the ally ring...to be honest, I didn't realise they were there. Hopefully the new O-rings will do the same job as a cap...not sure yet as the bike has only had a few outings since I've done it.
  4. Magical fork spring orientation

    Can anyone remember which way up they they go off top of your head...or where i can find out?
  5. Fantic 200 whining noise - help please!

    I've not noticed any whining on my 200, so I'd say you have a fault...Sorry I can't be of any more help, hope you got to the bottom of it.
  6. 4rt spark plug

    Thought l’d up-grade to iridium, but compared it to old one it looks different. Have i got the right one? Is the non-threaded bit part pf the seal?
  7. Fantic 307 jetting

  8. 4rt running rough

    Have you by any chance plugged the lighting exstention into the main loom? I did for MOT. It ran very similar to what you describe.
  9. Minarelli 200 Head torque settings

    I got this from a 1978 Motorcycle Machanics. Anyone know for sure what the correct head torque for my FM350 rear kick should be?
  10. Fantic 200 Front Forks

    My standard springs were about the same with no spacers.
  11. Is it Bent?

    Surely if you straiten it out it will be longer. I would have thought cutting a piece out would be the fix. My bike doesn't fall over as much since I put Magical springs in the forks...ground clearance has increased, maybe that's your issue or wrong rear shockers?
  12. Is it Bent?

  13. Is it Bent?

    Think mine is strait. I did wonder(because it's strait) if it had been a DIY job after the OE got damaged. Yours looks very similar to mine except yours has a crank in it. I recon someone had done to stop it catching on rocks. They are only a bit of light weight tube and will fracture if messed with too much. I have to be careful where I leave my 200, bit of wind or soft ground has it over. Think the foot could do with being slightly bigger and a shorter length would help.
  14. 1979 Fantic 200 engine removal

    Sounds like a plan. They are very tight and fiddly, I really didn't think I'd get it out without taking the head off, and then thought about getting it back in...much easyer.
