    Boyesen Reeds, Worthwhile?

    I would and did with my 38 year old Beamish Suzuki. I went for hytech reeds in mine and at just £14 it was a no brainer. In fact they are for a ty250 as no one makes them for the Beamish and as the Beamish Reed block is almost a direct copy of the TY Reed block they are bolt straight in.

    How old were the stock reeds. If there old as in from back in the day. Then it's wise to get rid of them anyway. If they fail because of age they will take the piston n barrel with them. At least if the fibre reeds fail they will do no damage.

    If you go the classic route, look up peak classic trial club. Good club and they have some great venues to ride and lots of classes to suit every level.

    Novice question about adjusting preload

    You want about 10mm sag without you on the bike. If you have it set with no sag the shocks top out and it will feel horrible.

    make sure the dip stick is dry before, will make it easier to see where its wet

    TL250 - now running, well sort of...

    get a sonic cleaner and strip the carb down and give it 15-20 mins in the cleaner.
