Technical / Ktm restart removal
« on: March 04, 2013, 04:04:08 PM »
My friend owns one of these and, if my memory is correct, the E start mounts to the stator cover. If this is the case I wonder if the non E start mag cover would clear the existing stator.

Is your clutch basket notched?

Technical / 2003 cr125 brand new top end

X2. First check the compression and if you don't see at least 150 PSI with that fresh piston, then something is wrong. If that checks out, pull the plug, spray a little raw gas in the cylinder, put the plug back in and give her a kick. If the CR fires then the problem is fuel, if not, as stated, check for spark. ;D

I would try the bike as is. With your extra weight and the intended use of trail riding the suspension might be fine the way it is. ;D

Technical / Headlight on a small bore two stroke?

I knew a guy who did a lot of dual sporting and his wife had a street legal, lights equipped, YZ 80. They are rare but the ignition off of a Yamaha DT 50 just might fit on your bike.

Technical / Painting exhaust

I paint my vintage pipes satin black and I find it looks better then the BBQ black.

Technical / KX250 front brake problem
« on: October 27, 2013, 02:51:01 PM »
The brake caliper is typically mounted on pins which allow it to "float" and position itself on the disc. Make sure it's not seized. As well, make sure the disc itself is not warped or heavily glazed.

I'd be inclined to put the stock Bing back on as they work well on the big bore Maico's.

VERY nice motor. Where did you find the Dutch Maico?

It was Maico that pioneered the 72 mm stroke.

If your conrod bigend bearing is worn you'll hear it "rapping" when the bike is running. Worn crank bearings have a "gravelly" sound. ;D

Shanes, why have these companies set up shop in Thailand as apposed to, say, China or Taiwan?

Just read that a significant number of Triumph motorcycles are now being made in Thailand, mainly the twins I have been told.
