  1. No ball bearing in my workshop manual clutch exploded view and no mention in the text
  2. teamferret

    SSDT Cancelled

    how come there is nothing on the main site?
  3. If you are going for their 'yamaha' conversion the pushrod will need shortening (and the mainshaft)

    Jungle barn find

    If it's got 6 gears then it's not a TL125 engine
  5. Disc brakes are a big no no ( not sure why). Oversized forks are on the banned list, but I see lots in use, some disguised, again I can't see a big advantage in them. Putting mono engines in twin shock frames has led to problems, I know of RTL engined bikes that have been turned away, but you can convert an SWM to Aprilia Climber specification and that's OK?
  6. Never rated seal skinz I got my waterproof socks from Silvermans who do ex army stuff

    it should also be near impossible to put back on
  8. Difficult stage as I think she is too big for any of the auto's. My personal favourite learning bike is still the TY80, but might be a bit small though though there were some larger versions about. Don't be put off too much by price, if it's a good one then it will hold it's value
  9. It will go on, but you might find it difficult to keep it on if you run really low pressures, it will slip back into the well of the rim
  10. You should be OK with 4 inch. You can space the sprocket left slightly by putting a washer between it and the hub then counterboring the sprocket slightly to clear the brake plate (mine wore it's self one but this was 30 years ago, nowadays I would put it on the lathe).
  11. The A refers to the size of the piston. They are grouped into size bands and matched to a bore. you need to make sure you put an A back in or you will almost certainly end up with a loose or tight piston

    280 Piston

    The MZ301 piston is very similar and can be found at good value
  13. I've only had a quick look, but I would say that it's the lining on the clutch that is giving you problems, Re-line perhaps???
  14. All the engine bits are available from Villiers services. Don't think those forks are the right ones i think they had MP's
  15. I've bought off ebay in the past, but agree there seems a lot less now. Try Gumtree and facebook market place
  16. No, sorry to mislead - you can register the bike without fuss, but if you want to use it on the road it will have to be MOT'd and insured. As a way of getting a number it is very easy and then upgrading to road use after
  17. No, the DVLA have introduced this scheme to reduce the amount of unregistered vehicles, you can even get a reg plate for a horse box. I've done a couple of my trials bikes so that they are included on my insurance

    Greeves win

    very tidy must have cost a bit to put together, but well worth it
  19. If you don't mind having a Q plate you can register it like a farm vehicle and you won't need MOT or insurance
  20. Try the obvious things first. Strip each connecter clean and ensure each one is tight. Disconnect the kill switch. Check the earths including the stator to the engine. Make sure the flywheel woodruff key is present and correct (if the timing is too far out it won't spark. Substitution with known components from another bike follows if you are lucky enough to find one. Rex Caunt or electrex world may be able to help, depending if they think there is enough interest in doing a system for that bike. If all else fails modify a pit bike system to fit
  21. Look on ebay, there is a guy who breaks just scorpas
  22. Yet you can use a 4-speed bantam that came out in 1969
