    Ty 250 R mono cylinder bore

    I buy some stuff from Wemoto. They are an a-ok honest shop to deal with. However, those pistons they sell for 35 quid for a ty mono are useful as an ashtray - nothing else. You have been warned. There is a reason why a Wossner/Wiseco piston costs around a hundred quid, and more for a genuine Yamaha item. Think about it.

    TY Mono bottom end

    All identical. Perhaps flywheel weights were different as the bike became more "modern"?

    Lack of power after new top end

    Lack of power after new top end

    Er. I would not recommend doing that. 1.0 Er. I would not recommend that. 2.0 If you are going to do a job, do it properly and with the correct tools. Flywheel pullers and holding tools are not even expensive. Ferchrissakes.

    Boyesen Reeds, Worthwhile?

    Current instructions for Boyesen reeds (2018) for ty Yamahas mention opening up the windows if you wish - normal Boyesen procedure (4 to 2 window?) and leaving the stop plates in situ.

    Look at the weight savings man! I can see lettering on one hex bolt. Allen heads not tapered. And purely for visuals, replace all those ugly cross heads with button heads or c'sunk allens. Apart from that - lovely.

    Yeah, should be a simple job for a machinist. Turn crank down, sleeve, and finish turn or grind to original size.

    My first Fantic!

    What's way too high? They stopped making that bike 35 years ago. You are not sourcing common spares for a Japanese road bike made in the last 5 years. You are looking for parts for a 35 y/o European niche bike. You are fortunate that this bike has specialist spares people still in business. Pay up, and support your local (or specialist) m/c business. Congrats on a nice bike by the way.

    Baffleless TY

    You mean a higher gear. ie 2nd instead of 1st, or 3rd instead of 2nd.

    Baffleless TY

    What gear are you in? If first, try 2nd or 3rd. Those are pitiful wheelies for a ty250. If i'm daft my mono will flip me on my a*** in 2nd or 3rd at a walking pace. Also check your gearing - something is amiss.
