  1. Nick is a member of the club i am president of. Thats dads greeves. i have one myself but prefer my ty175's. Ive bought bikes from nick and been to his house many o times. --Biff
  2. Come ride with us in MOTA. I am 45 miles north of Toledo here near detroit but we practice about 30 miles north of you in milan michigan a lot. Our closest event to you is just up route 23 in Whitmore lake. We have about 40-60 riders per event. Really relaxed crew. We have others who live in toledo area as well. Pm me if you want and we will share contact info. www.motatrials.com --Biff
  3. With a bed extender or just tail gate down it is possible to get two bikes in the maverick. took one to the rents house and got 35mpg to central NY from Michigan and back. Fwd hybrid lariat. Im biased of course and in love! 😍 --Biff
  4. talon tg109 will do the trick as well but you didnt want to wait the several months durring covid for uk shipping... --Biff
  5. Posting this here as i know i will want to refer to this again someday in the future. As im modifying my 175 with 350 mono stuff i needed to go up to a 520 chain but my counter shaft sprocket has been a PITA to get right... so here it goes. Dear future Biff, Hows it going? Wow yea i can see you haven't missed a meal. Well as you asked the counter shaft 520 sprocket from a 1980-1993 kx125 will work on the Ty175. Stay well bud! --Past Biff
  6. Ride or spectate nationals... good times will be had in the states. https://www.mototrials.com/ --Biff
  7. We have one in Michigan and have had a few visit from canada before covid. When i visited mike at tryalshop he had a few around. Good power good beginner bike. --Biff
  8. flush flush and flush again. also give the coolant a few cc to expand. --biff
  9. Every three rides and on GasGas its type F atf if it had not been converted to Autotrac transfercase fluid. I find standard ATF to be hard to find in europe but that is usually because of the lack of those transmissions. --Biff

    I agree with Lineaway on this one. No one needed to ride my bike for me before covid and i have a face for social distancing so lets ride! --Biff
  11. That just means its time to re-arch the pan. —Biff
  12. Txt editions have a crank case bottom end drain plug for this. Remove the skid plate and the plug is on the bottom of the big end. Wish others did this... —Biff
  13. There used to be a great trial on hunter mountain. Grand parents lived in boiceville. Jim is an amazing resource out of oneonta. —biff
  14. Welcome! Check out the group from 3d and d4. Growing up in Caz myself you have a ton of people in your neighborhood that are trials enthusiast. Between tryals shop and those two groups you should be all sorted. —Biff
  15. Hey have you all been hearing about corduroy pillow cases? No? Weird! They've been making headlines! --Biff
  16. 3d printed shark Fin. --Biff
  17. Well you are going to have to look. Clutch baskets from this era were known to wear grooves in themselves where the plates ride. That can cause the plates to stick and suddenly break free. With this home made bushing idea it really caused a delay / slack feeling transitioning from coast to accel. 3 and a half years later its still working for me. --Biff
  18. That is a bad water pump seal. If you didn't change out the water pump shaft that rides on that seal then it would also cause the leak. It is the only place on a pro that water can get from the coolant into the transmission. The shaft can wobble if the brass bushing holding the shaft is enlarged as well. --Biff
  19. These Michigan boys are really tearing it up these days! Woot Frankenmuth! --Biff
  20. @feetupfun I am just about to transfer a set of Arkon rims from a TY250L mono over to my Ty175. I want to go with the tubliss 2nd gen system when I do this with a set of Dunlop 803GP tires. My main reason was to use the forks on this one but why not go all out right? I am interested in the grove you are speaking of (pics?). Is this just roughing up the bead area so it sticks? As i read this you are still running a tube with a tubeless tire right? Currently i am running a new IRC tubeless reject on my standard ty175 rim with a tube but gotta love those gold rims so this is going to happen. --Biff
  21. Most of the time if you are leaking at the rim strip its because the spokes underneath are loose causing it to move that rim strip. Check your spoke and make sure you have no corrosion issues in the spoke area. --Biff
  22. 3:26 not only stop but foot down along with. smh --Biff
  23. The Scorpa SY250 was the hardest one I have ever worked on. Everything has to be exactly where it needs to be or nothing will fit. Throttle cable can't be above the frame between the tank. Carb takes a week to gain access to, If you remove certain things you break others if not paying attention. Again they run and run and run but only if you have a good shoe horn. Also changing a one off spark plug on a Fantic Kroo makes me wonder if they just forgot that spark plugs were needed when laying it out. --Biff
