    Clutch FACTS - TL320

    AS clutches are a major talking point on the Forum, AND i was a bit bored last night !!.. thought i'd do some measurements of the Clutch lever actuation while my 320 is stripped down. ( Excuse the slightly blurred pics and the Dirt in the casings !!.) These are just for Information , as I'd not seen these measurements stated (So hope this helps anyone in some way ) .. And they're from a pretty worn engine, but I expect them to be reasonably accurate. (is that enough disclaimers !!)

    PECO 200 SWM Teardown

    Wow, Thanks Motsinge83, that's the kind of detail I was hoping for. Do you still have the bike ?. Interesting to hear about them machining down a second Ignition cover to make a spacer....!No expense spared Ha ha. I'll talk to Martin at "MotoSWM" about the barrel liners, Maybe its a 175 barrel?. PS. From the pictures looks like the Leather cover on the seat was another special mod. Cool Pictures , many thanks.

    PECO 200 SWM Teardown

    Thanks Reggie, yep I'd heard that one too. Once I get the piston out I'll check gudgeon pin bore and crown heights to see if we get a suitable source !!.

    PECO 200 SWM Teardown

    Finally started to pull apart my 81 PECO 200 SWM . Not many of these were made, Not even sure if any others have survived out there. It was a small company called "Performance Equip CO" here in the UK that modified the std 125 SWM trials , I believe 6 were made, but some of this is just folklore, would love to hear more snippets about the history of these if anyone really knows .. Any way I've owned it from Circa 1985, Although my memorys not as good as it was, and apologies in advance for the fuzzy photos. And Yes it was a black frame model when it was first made... As I'm going to restore it I thought I'd put up some pictures of the "modified" parts of the engine. 1, Heavier Flywheel and Ignition Backplate modifcation. 2, Bore and Stroke OK So Measured the bore and it comes in at 63.5mm Diameter. Doing the maths , IF the Stroke is std for a 125 at 54mm the that makes 171cc. Bearing in mind this was the era when a 200 fantic was actually 156 !! , then maybe thats that. But will do some more diggin to see if it is using the 175 enduro 57.5mm stroke crank or even the 61mm 240/280 crank. I'll do an update to the page when the Piston and crank are out.

    Would be happy to look at the CAD files, I could use the profiles to machine tooling with a cnc.

    Jumbo Project/Tank badges

    Hi motopelli, how did u get on with the 3D cad version. I can help out if you need. Or send me the 2D and I can model them up. Just looked at my 84 Jumbo, and I think I have some screen printed replicas installed. But attached pisture anyway for future reference.
