  1. I'm really hoping we have computers and internet in 11 years time when sherpa325 answers this question.
  2. Hi Phillip, As you say it’s the springs and the pins hitting, you would think maybe the basket or the hub are spaced out too far. 6mm is a large gap trying a different case. You might need to pull it apart and check the chain alignment. Checking to see if the basket is out of alignment with the crankshaft sprocket. If it’s right, check the spacer thickness between the clutch hub and basket. I don’t have a measurement for it. The later clutch assemblies use threaded pins and nuts. Cheers Brian
  3. Hello phillip1, If you can wait 11 years Sherpa325 will have the information you need. It might take longer though, as you didn't put Urgent in your heading. Is there an extra clutch plate fitted? That would space out the pressure plate. Or a thicker washer between the clutch basket and the inner bearing. Brt650
  4. That’s my mum Sherpa325. I told mum there was a handsome gentleman from Queensland that might give her a call , but that hasn’t happened yet feetupfun. Hello pschrauber, I like your version of setting timing much better than sherpa325. I think his explanation is lost in the translation somehow. My Avatar, maybe it’s been affected by covid-19. I can’t remember how I did it, so there’s no way I can fix it. cheers everyone Brt650
  5. Well congratulations nw rain man, I’ve been asking sherpa325 how to do the timing on my 159 350 for over ten years. He has never told me how to do it and you ask and straight away you have a way of doing it. Thanks for doing that, I’ll go out in the shed and get straight on it. Make sure you tell us how you went. p.s don’t forget to fit the carb cheers brt650
  6. Please don’t take offence here b40rt , but Sherpa325 you can. Did you read the heading Sherpa325? Two things I noticed 1; Urgent in the heading 2; 2009, The year Steve wanted the help. I hope I never have an emergency sherpa325 and have to hang from a short rope over a deep hole waiting for you to get around to giving me some help. just saying cheers brt650

    327 won't rev!

    Well I'm not too big to admit I may have the cc capacity of the bike incorrect, But I didn't want to put said owner/ Christmas gift receiver through all that pain again trying to receiving that information . I believe you drove off leaving him to repair the damage you caused. Not much damage really. A barrel, piston kit and gaskets. It was probably due for a de-coke anyway. I guess he had to wait till his birthday to get those items. I'm also lead to believe his Aunty drove two hours to watch him ride his new gift. I guess she probably watched him ride it on his birthday. No biggie. I wish you were my friend just saying cheers

    Is This Right?

    Maybe your right toofasttim, I have a friend that I ride with. He has a gas gas 300 and he can't pick the difference either.Although my mate does pop and fart. I had a ride and couldn't pick it . His mate and his son have gas gas's and they can't pick the difference. So that only leaves one answer , we are all senile. Do you happen to know if there is a tablet to correct this condition? Thanks brt650
  10. Hey sherpa, You forgot the rear shocks, seat,handlebars,levers ,brake pedal and light flywheel. You can protest all you like. I think I may know the person who the protest goes too. But at least that answers my next question, Were you riding this week end? I'll take that as yes. Cheers mate brt650
  11. Hello sherpa325, Is that 199b the one with original footrests? Or have they been cut off and had modern brackets welded to it? Would be a shame to wreck a classic bike like that. Actually I'm against modifying any old bike to bring it up to modern specs. Cheers brt650
  12. Hello guys What's your plans? I have done several mods to my 159. Keep up the good work Cheers brt650

    Swing Arm Removal ?

    Are you trying to remove the brake caliper pistons? Remove the caliper from bike and screw in a grease nipple into the banjo bolt hole and pump out the pistons with the grease.If one piston is loose and the other jambed , just put a "g" clamp on the loose piston and pump away.
  14. Well done guys. That's a nice looking bike.Are you going to compete in twinshock trials with it? Cheers brt650
  15. Sorry breagh, But how can you compare a TL125 to a Sherpa t 350? Not even in the same league. Also I believe a Montesa 4RT would be classed as a modern bike. Which he already owns by his status. And I have 8 bikes that don't fall apart because I do regular maintenance on them. And I do agree with you on the Italjet , a lovely bike, for someone else to own. Cheers brt650
  16. Hello Guys, If possible check the brake drums. The chrome brake surface has a tendency to come adrift. It's not that expensive to have the drums relined. Just a time consuming exercise with R & R ing the rim/s and spokes. Even with poor brakes they are a better bike than any Honda. Whoops did I say that out loud? Anyway I hope you have luck in getting one. P.S I saw a Sherpa T 1975 model (159) with honda wheels fitted to it on the week end. Dam ugly. Cheers brt650
  17. sherpa325, My ancestors where very important to the Australian Government. That's why they were chained together so they didn't get lost overboard. Cheers

    feetupfun has dibs on my mum sherpa325 . You''ll have to compete with him. Anyway, they are off the plentiful Hond RTL250S which I believe they made 240 of them. They crushed some too. So no-one will miss one more. Cheers Brian
  19. Did you get that bike in 1879? It's just I have photo's of my great grand parents and the photo looks the same. The bottom photo that is. It's just that I thought i could see Ned Kelly in the back ground. Cheers Brian I still can't believe you people have to modify stuff.

    Thanks for that b40rt, I probably wasn't going that way long before I decided to it. Ha ha Just have to hope the Honda boy's don't find out. Cheers
  21. Gosh mrb505, I can't believe you have cut the bottom frame tubes off. Why can't people leave there bikes alone. Next thing you'll be fitting a flat slide carb. Cheers brt650

    Brake Secrets

    No photo's yet mrb505. But just wondering is a 1985 Honda RTL250s a rare bike? And if so would it be criminal to fit the forks and wheels out of one into my Bultaco? Just wondering of course. Not like I would do that. But just got the tubes back today from the Hard chromers. I'll put them together in the next week or so and I'll send some photo's.
  23. My Mother rides a TLR and my sister rides a TY175. Enough said. Sorry guy's. Good one scot taco . Look what you have made me say. Cheers brt650

    Brake Secrets

    Just an update ; I've fitted Honda brake shoes to the rear. That's fixed that end. I've fitted Honda shoes on the front , almost. I'd rather not go any further than that, otherwise I might loose some Bultaco friends.
