    Not that I'm aware of. Uban myth from the UK restrictions maybe. LC models had washers but don't think they went to the US. More likely on a 78 is your high speed coil is failing. Check the stator resistances. The 78 cdi uses 2 Coils one for low rpm the other for high. Known as a 7 wire system amongst owners. Yep 7 wires between the cdi and the mag. The approx point where the system switches over between Coils is 6k.

  5. Ooo now that's very nice! Maybe I need an old triple to go with my modern one Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  6. Hi guys. Recently brought the mk3 after turning 17. And have had a problem with it running. I had the carb ultrasonic clean cause it was bogging and occasionally backfiring. After having it cleaned the bike ran fine. After this I let it stood and the problem reoccurred. I soldered a new source coil onto the stater cause the back firing made me think it was electrical. Anyway suggestions on what it could be ???
  7. Yeah this is the problem. Who to trust.

  11. you can buy yamaha compatible immobiliser emulators on ebay (about £15). they feed the expected signal to the ECU so it thinks the RFID key is in the ignition and is being correctly detected. Best not tell your insurance however because with a factory fit immobiliser they wont touch it.
  12. Well all my talk of scratching itches opened up a deep itch. When I was 18 I bought my first Triumph. A T140D, and it was fekking beautiful. I rode down to Shipley on the back of my pals Bonnie and when I saw it in the shop I was delighted. Speaking with the salesman he points to another bike and says, the owner traded in his bike for that there. I looked over and saw this thing of raw beauty and vowed there and then I had to get one. Well 37 years later I took the plunge. Suffice to say the 3 grand I got for my auld bike ended up as a deposit for this These pics were ones the PO sent me and no doubt I will get lots of my own as soon as I am off work

  14. Dirt bikes are hassle, a minter may have been left and used when it was dry. One that looks unloved could have been serviced every race. Buyer be very aware.
  15. Thats the thing about dirt bikes , you cant tell how abused they"ve been ,, most need rebuilt often ,
