  1. I have located a set of girling units as fitted originally but these will be saved for now, I have had contact with norman who will sort me out a set as required, with correct spring rates ect.. I am not a trials ace, I could buy more expensive but it's more about period bits !
  2. Thank you all for that , I can now make a decision on what is required, will get some orderd and start removing this monoshock , sam brownlee informs me they used a kwac AR50 shock when they converted it..hopefully will get her back to twinshock asap and working as it should
  3. Hi all , it seems there are lots of different rear shocks out there, some rated at soft and super soft action ect and i am 95 kg so need stronger spring rate to go on the shocks . I would have said you needed stiffer shocks for stronger springs , what do you find works best??
  4. Hi all , just sorting bits out to reverse the dodgy monoshock conversion done to my bike. The swingarm I have to replace the home made one has lost the stand bracket. Has anyone got a good picture of a bracket please so I can fabricate a replacement....cheers
  5. Just spoke to mick about the barrel, he said sam could not remember if one was fitted to my bike and sam would have to inspect the barrel to see. It would seem they only did about 6 of these barrels due to expense!!
  6. It was because mick and sam said about the sleeve and how to spot it, ie no mention off stepped sleeve and the reading of above artical of a 2mm wall thickness sleeve. You can see the sleeve on the bottom of the works barrel clearly, I just did not want to pull my engine down yet to inspect further.
  7. Look on this site under works majesty, ksmith was the writer and owner. This was what mick and sam was explaining to me . It seems it's called a s type barrel.
  8. It says on here the works majesty engine barrel was standard barrel took to 74 mm and a liner back to 70 . This was what I was referring to,
  9. I took my bike to mick Andrew's and sam brownlee, mick asked if it was 80 mm bore , I had had the head off before and new it was 70mm. They told me about the barrels that jonh shirt did and said you might see this as a thin ring.
  10. Hi all just been looking at this ty250 I have , do you think this has been sleeved down???

    ..Well guy that's up for debate, I have a couple more phone calls to make on this, if that is a dead end i will have done all i can. It will be put up for debate as a separate issue on here for every one to decide !!!

    Would this be a john shirt mod or another garden shed job??

    Has the 90 degree pipe been changed from standard pipe , ie bigger diameter . I can see how its shortened as you have described
