    Best Levers

    It's more that the clutch isn't engaging nicely, the lever seems to pulling the inner cable across a ridge rather than a nice straight run to the outer cable/adjuster. They are defo coming off, my clutch is a lot heavier than a friends TY which is all the same apart from the levers

    Best Levers

    Before I go and spend a load of dosh on some Domino's - what levers do you guys recommend? I have these at the moment - but they don't feel right, lots of slop in the levers and the cable doesn't seem to run smooth in it (in any position) https://www.tytrials.co.uk/trailandtrialsuk/prod_47644-Clutch-Lightening-Lever-Forged.html TIA
  3. Hey, any one in the west London, or west of London area know of any summer evening trials going on at all?
  4. I carry these in the bumbag - https://www.cyclerepublic.com/skabs-bike-tube-peel-and-stick-patches.html?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIyqOHseiJ2wIV14XVCh0sxAIQEAQYAiABEgKbk_D_BwE work just as well as the above ones, but no need to faff around with glue etc, just peel and stick over the hole. But for a big event like the Manx I would carry a front tube with me too, because you can get away with putting a front in the rear in an emergency. Have a few spare tubes in the van and you should be fine I'd say. I recently put together a bumbag for the TY, as I have another one that I use for my modern enduro bike. The CO2 cartridge type air pumps (get 25g cartridges if you can find them) are great too!
  5. So what is top of your list? I have fibre reeds, refurbed standard carb, suspension is great. Bigger carb? Airbox?
  6. Looking at cashing out on a wes exhaust - am I better with one or two boxes? I don't mind the noise as I ride with a few VERY loud pre 65's. But what will give best power

    Show Us Your Ty

    @patauf Nice, I have the RD350 rubber on its way, I was going to play with boost bottles to see if I can actually feel a difference, so might try and get a DT125LC one from ebay to try! What else have you done? Mono Forks? Something crazy on the front brake? Airbox? Which carb is it? Clutch cable?

    Show Us Your Ty

    Hey patauf , Can you tell me about your boost bottle? Are you using the RD 350 intake rubber? Whats the bottle? Also, what did you use to bolt the exhaust cover on? The Wes has now screws?
  9. Tried all the usual suspects, no one has them
  10. Maybe.. I'm after parts 2 and 5 on the parts fishe for a TY175 - I think its the 3rd/4th pinion and 5th pinion. Anyone know where I can find them?
  11. I posted up looking for some help to find gearbox parts, but the thread seems to have gone? Did I do something wrong?

    IOW 2 day

    Excellent, really looking forward to it! Managed to end up with rider number 1 too (probably the first and last time I get that number!) Looks like no one entered twinshock hard for the road route, tempting to go up a class for the challenge!

    Edge tank bag

    Ah I see, I have a tool bumbag for that

    Edge tank bag

    What would you keep in a bag like this? Would it just be for laning?

    IOW 2 day

    All booked on - going Twinshock Easy Road route as I have no idea how hard it will be. Any one else going?

    Goggles or not?

    Good value - anyone used an Acerbis one?

    Goggles or not?

    To be honest, my only concern is for the road work - even just trundling along at 30mph will make your eyes stream. I think Ill go down the saftey specs route for now..... Good point on the weight, 1200g is as heavy as both my full face enduro helmet and my road bike helmet! Are there any lighter helmets with an integrated visor?
  18. I'm going to do the IOW two day next weekend, and I've signed up to do the road route. I have an Airoh TTR helmet currently, which doesn't have a slide out visor. I'm considering picking up a Hebo Zone 5 for £85 to use when I do more road work as it has the visor integrated. Do most people just use MX/Enduro goggles (I have plenty of them already)? Seems like a right PITA to me...

    Engine Paint

    What paint do you guys use to paint the barrel of a TY175? Thanks
  20. If you need to use the clutch on a section then you are in the wrong gear. This was the biggest lesson I learned with twinshocks. I don't touch the clutch now

    Side Stand mods

    Yeah I know, trees work, lay it down etc etc, regardless I'd like to get the stand operational. Welding a bit in is the obvious, but its going to hand way past the end of the swing arm, so anyone put a bend in? Looking for photos please

    Side Stand mods

    Working on my first TY project, its got some lovely longer shocks on, so I need to think about extending the side stand. What have you guys done? or just bin it and use a tree?
