    349 prices

    Thanks Peeps, very helpful. Not sure I'd enjoy 70mph on mine. No speedo but it does fly and pulls like a train.

    349 prices

    Hi, I have a 349 white wonder which I've owned for about 4 years. It's tatty as hell but starts and rides well. I've not done much to it apart from registering it for road use, new crank seals, a new OKO carb and a new chain and sprockets to up the gearing so it's usable on the road, which is ineresting to say the least. I use it once, maybe twice, a year so I'm thinking of selling it unless it's worthless 'cos of condition. What do people think? Ideal project that someone will take my arm off for or piece of junk that's not woth its scrap value?

    MPG/range?

    Hi, I have a 1981 349 white wonder and I'm hoping to enter "Herefordshire on the edge" A road trial with some green lanes run by the VCMCC. I'd be interested to know if any one has worked out the MPG of one of these and therefore the range on a tank full. I have upped the gearing a little to 34t rear but can't remember the front and can't see it at the mo' I did lower it from standard. Thanks for looking.

    349 wiring

    I have a diagram, I'm after one of just the switch as the switch I have is not original. I've seen an original switch for 35 euros but with out any wiring. There are ones with wiring harness attached but 140 euros? I don't think so especially when they are selling a generic £5 brake light switch for 100 euros !!!

    349 wiring

    Thank you. I need working lights as there's a trial I want to enter when the world is sane again, which stipulates having working lights. A friend says he may be able to help as he thinks my aftermarket switch is wired wrongly. Is there a wiring diagram of the switch? Does anyone have one?

    349 wiring

    Hi, Just looking at returning to my 349 after 6 months of working on an old British bike. My bike has a wiring loom that is a little tatty. It has an aftermarket switch but didn't have any lights. I have bought aftermarket front and rear lights and managed to wire them in and my electrical knowledge is all but non existant! All appears to work but when the revs rise the bulbs blow. How is the voltage regulated? I need the lights for an mot. Thanks for looking. Neil
  8. Hi, Thanks for all your input and apologies for late response. I shall be trying to fir the chain later this week. I won't be using the old chain as a guide as I am changing the gearing.
  9. I have changed the sprockets, it's just getting the chain length right then setting the tension.
  10. Hi, I'm replacing my chain and sprockets on my 1981 Montesa 349. I've never done this on a bike with a tensioner. Any hints and tips out there? Cheers.
  11. Cheers, A friend made me a puller to remove the primary drive sprocket when I changed the crank seals. I'll ask if he can make an adaptor for that...
  12. Managed to cut a slot in with a multi tool and got the nut off by using a screwdriver in the slot.I can't get the stud out as I would like to at least clean it up put it just turns.... Got a puller behind the sprocket and put tension on it.Given it plenty of thumps wit a hammer and will leave it overnight I suppose.
  13. I had a 1976 Bultaco 191 but couldn't get used to the right hand gearchange. I now have a 1981 Montesa 349 and don't find myself changing down when I want the rear brake ? Bought both from the twinshock shop in Sidmouth so you may be local?
  14. Offending nut indicated.
