    Point Gap, Ty80

    I have misplaced my manual and I am wondering if anyone can give me the proper point gap for a 1974 TY80. Thanks, JAS
  3. Anyone know if there is a place (preferably in the USA) that can rebuild a mono shock, shock absorber? Thanks, Jim
  4. Got one cylinder with a perfect bore.
  5. Picked up another TY350 today, loaded with spares, including an NOS std bore piston and rings! Score!!
  6. Sweet, thank you! I have some 4043.
  7. I have a couple broken fins on a Mono cylinder, I'd like to repair them but I'm not sure if the parent material is aluminum or magnesium. I know the side covers are magnesium but not sure about the finned cylinder. If anyone knows which it is, please let me know. Thanks, Jim
  8. Well.... Restoration on hold now, I just bought another 85 so.... 3 running TY350's is enough for now!
  9. Hmmmm, that might be the way to go! This should probably be a custom build rather than a restoration.... Anyone have p/n's for the caged rollers and steel bushings for the swing arm? Also need p/n's for the shock assembly bushings. Thanks in advance.
  10. Here I go again, trying to talk myself into or out of another motorcycle restoration. I've already started on the engine and I had been debating on keeping it as a "spare" but I have the frame it came out of.... So toying with the idea of jumping in on another one. Any words of encouragement or discouragement would be appreciated. I am missing the following parts: Fuel tank, seat, front wheel, front axel, and the brake light switch.
  11. I understand that in 1986 improvements to the TY frame were made, anyone know just what they are? Thanks
  12. What are you running for gearbox oil in your TY250 or 350?
  13. Yeah, not sure what they were thinking. I got it from a friend that bought it out of California a few years ago. It's an excellent running and riding bike.
  14. Yes, that will be done to this engine too. This engine is off my "parts bike" but the more I think about it, the more I am leaning toward making the "parts bike" a complete bike.... Not too much missing, front wheel, tank and seat and it would be complete. Might be kind of weird to have 3 complete TY350's though..... I have yet to pull the flywheel cover on the white framed TY, I'm thinking there have been some engine mods to it, it runs much different than the 84 stock bike I've had for years. Previous owner didn't have much info on it and he maybe rode it 10 minutes in the 3 years that he owned it.
