    300 carb advice

    Hi, I am going to replace the carb on my 300 Pro. Dell Orto PHBH26BS, I've been checking prices online and the cheapest genuine one is from a scooter shop. Just looking for confirmation that they are all the same dimensions, cheers

    Spindle play

    Hi, There is a small amount of play between the fork clamp and the front wheel spindle. Even when the locking bolt is fully tight there is still a bit of movement, I'm pretty sure it should be tight. Is there a fix or should I get a new spindle ? Tech 3 forks so I don't want to grind the slit a bit wider so they will clamp tighter. Thanks in advance

    Fuel cap O'ring

    The O'rings on the fuel cap of my 247 are failing quite often now, I believe that it me be due to E10 fuel. At the moment I'm just using basic rubber ones, can anyone recommend a type that will last a bit longer. Thanks
  4. I know it's been asked before but not seen an answer. I recently put an OKO carb on my Cota with great results and was thinking about doing the same on my Beamish. Has anyone done this and what were the results ? cheers
  5. I used it on mine, seems ok but not used the bike much since doing it due to the lockdown.
  6. I bought a two part sealer (Petseal) from Ebay, pretty easy to do yourself.

    ST125 jet sizes

    Hi, just a quick one. Could someone advise me of the standard main and pilot jets for a 2008 ST125 with a Dell Orto carb please. Thanks in advance ?
  9. Done all of the above, wanting to know if it is possible to check the CDI unit. I may revert to the standard system meantime and see if the fault recurs
  10. Hi, I have a slight problem with my 247. It developed a fault recently. It starts no problem but will not rev out. It will pull fine on low throttle openings but when under load it just dies out. I have cleaned out the carburettor and replaced the jets and the float. It has electrex ignition and I was wondering if it may be the spark breaking down at higher revs. If so, is it possible to check for this ?
  11. Even better with extra headroom, not so good on fuel though
  12. Hi, just a quick question about the base gasket thickness. I have recently had my bike rebored to first oversize. I now need a new base gasket so I can refit it. I have searched through the forum but have not found the definitive answer to the standard thickness of this. It is still a 250 and I won't be changing it back to 325 so it would be great to know what thickness to get. Thanks in advance
  13. CCMCC trials are good and easy to get to from Dumfries and also a friendly club. Heading in the other direction you can find the Dalmellington MCC, they hold trials quite close to the town to from near Sanquhar and a few sites near New Cumnock. They are a friendly and helpful bunch too. As for practise ground, if you find any give me a shout.
  14. I recently bought an adjustable c-spanner (from Ebandit) to adjust the shock on a Beta 80. Worked great but had to remove the shock to adjust it. Hope this helps
