    TLNW 125 wiring diagram

    Hi, has anybody got a readable wiring diagram for a TLNW 125 they can let me have a copy of ? Everything I've found so far is of low quality and unreadable. Thanks in advance, Phil

    Oh dear, seem to have the wrong vid. It's Brands by the way. Popped in there on my way home in August. I'll upload the Gefrees link/s shortly.

    280 Clutch Actuator

    Hi, except the cast plate, bottom right, everything is an Aprilia part or a simple third party for screws, spring and so. Check the Barnett Clutches thread for more details. The milling involved is not too big a number if you have experience with your machine, should be no problem. I have four plates left. That includes one complete set as in the pic. I'm asking €20 plus p&p for the plate alone and €60 plus P&P for the one complete set. As you are in the US, you might like to keep an eye out for later Can Am Bombardier engines which are being broken. They have the same setup but with a steel arm which you can cut, extend and weld. The best fix for a better, lighter mechanical clutch is to get hold of an Aprilia TX cover or an air cooled climber one. Hens teeth here. If your Italian is 'Intuative', as indeed mine is, you can also get everything you need here, http://www.swm-moto.net/en/?jjj=1455288193313&jjj=1459258046796 Phil

    Zundapp Trials.

    I met and had a nice long chat with Gustav at the D-Cup round in (Gefrees), age is getting the better of me, it was in Zirndorf in August. He told me so many stories about his rides in the UK and one which he had to tell was when he broke his foot. Apparently, he went off between sections and it was Sammy Miller who stopped to help him. Accoring to Gustav, Sammy only helped him because he thought he would then retire. Sammy pulled his bike back onto the road, helped Gustav to it, started it and wished Gustav all the best. Gustav then went on to win the trial which didn't go down well with Mr. Miller.

    Exhaust manifold in Stainless steel

    Yep, clean on the inside too and as stated earlier, was a perfect fit. It cost 165 pounds. https://jpcustomcomponents.co.uk/

    Exhaust manifold in Stainless steel

    After looking around for a good while for a replacement exhaust manifold for my 81 TL320NW, I found that most of what was on offer was in worse condition to the one I wanted to replace. Then a notification popped up on FB for some new stainless ones on offer. I ordered one, it arrived yesterday, I fitted it today, perfect.

    Hi basinbaker2, if you are going for the conversion but keeping the original SWM casing, the ramps need to be milled off and a special plate with cast in ramps is required. When I finally got hold of mine from Italy, I had a few cast if you are interested. In fact, just checked, I have all the bits for two complete conversions plus 3 more cast plates and various adjuster screws and 12 mm balls. PM me if you are interested. Phil

    Swm 125 fork problem

    I had the same problem with my 125 but with Marzocchis. I put them back together incorrectly. All documented here on this forum. I had the short spring, as Carl said above, on the wrong side of the top washer and circlip. Phil

    Footpeg mods.

    Hi Neil, B40RT, many many thanks for the pics and explanation. I've gone a different route though. I decided to make some 5 mm thick plates and had a few goes at finding the right footrest position for me. The end result is as follows. With the bike on a stand, the middle of the footpeg is 980 mm from the middle of the front axle to the middle of the footpeg. The top of the footpeg is 340 mm from the top of the frame rail directly above it. The brake lever is currently mounted on the outside of the frame using a rod to connect to the brake arm. It works fine but looks pretty naff to say the least. The template I have made is a bit like an italic 'h'. The pivot is on the bottom left, the cable would be mounted at the top left. The arc is stretched forward quite a lot and has to be that shape to get over the bash plate cross member. The pivot mounting point would be in the middle of the peg mounting bracket (idealy?). Not got that far yet but hope to get something finalized in the next couple of weeks or so. Phil
