  1. Sounds like fuel flow to me. How is the float height and fuel flow.

    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.
  3. 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.
  4. OOps, my bad. I have often as not done it in the past. Habit.
  5. Looks like.. Me, haven't missed one yet. Bip Drew Tommy Fin 2 wheels Kev John? Bloody good trip down for you. Maybe Slice, all the best to the wife.
  6. I bet they were at 17 quid a night. Ouch. Well I haven't missed any of the others so I will see you there. Got Friday off so will be there whenever, google gave me the most depressing directions of M1,M6,M42,M5 to A40. On a bike, I think not. Cross country through Worcester and Hereford feels like the way to go. Should be a nice trip.
  7. Totally get that. The tdr may get swapped for a vmax one day unless I can convince the wife to let me have both.
  8. Mate.. 3k. You like the 650 looks. Lighter, sweeter handling and still not stuuuuupid money. A 350b would do it. Get a Propper good one for 3k. A better bike than the 400 if I had to say or be shot. Then it's a smokey and I'm biased.

  11. Jealous, can only use bike specific track days as they all seem to have capacity limits now.

    Forum update

    HAHA, i was you for a while earlier in the week.
  13. Have you tried the 140 now the carb is clean. With the pipe etc you are into guesswork. It had a 140 so that's where to start. You have checked the earth's, plug cap lead etc and the plug. Always job No1 with running issues on a 2 stroke.
  14. Air leak if there are no cable/carb issues. Could be a gasket, carb rubbers, even the crank seal behind the mag. get squirting with wd40, that will show if its a gasket/seal leak. One thing you can rest easy on, we know exactly what bike your talking about, many of us have had one for years. I got mine 30 years ago.

    New ride....

    What you were dripping ugly fluids? Nice one Fizz, id like a change but my financial advisor has a long list of things that are really boring that I have to pay for. Nothing important, daughters uni, for example.
  16. 100 main is far too small, that's why its screaming for choke. Without the 25 idle your making things even worse. Ported properly with a good pipe and filter these could have a 200 main depending on the other jets. Someone may well have fitted a different needle and emulsion tube, matched to a 140 main. If you have these with a 100 main it will never run. If you have cut the fuel right back your smoke will be all the extra oil the engine is getting from the pump. Please don't mess with it. Pumps only kill bikes when people mess with them blaming them for problems caused by running out of oil or thrashing from cold. Put the originals back for now cleaned and at the very least do a plug chop.

    Biker down course

    I was 'removed' from an IAM ride out because I refused point blank to ride in 2 columns side by side. I wanted to ride in a stagger. They said it takes too much space, seeing as it was pissing with rain at the time I stated I wanted a way out in an emergency, I was on the inside getting hit by the rooster tail of spray coming off the sports bike ahead of me. Ruining my vision. They moaned if I dropped back, they moaned if I moved out of line, they moaned if I moved to the middle in corners to get out of the crap. They basically moaned, full stop. In the end they said if I cannot follow their 'safe' way I could not continue except at the rear. So I left the IAM to their own stupidity and have never regarded them as anything more than self important muppetts feeding off greener riders inexperience.
  18. The first round arm type were 78-79 the middle one was only available for a few months in 79 then the last 4j4 model ran till as late as 85 with the very last of the stock as they couldn't give them away because of the learner laws.
  19. The frame is an MX, a late early model if that makes sense, should have a round sw arm. Known as a 2K4, chassis number 2k4-000101 on. The subsequent 2X2 and 4J4 model codes (little different to look at) were 2k4-01 and 2k4-02. So def early mx. Cant help much with the engine number but there were some cross over mongrels of lc and mx parts bin match ups. Things in the early [email protected] were not as exacting as they are now. The early LC was quite literally a Mx bottom end with a water pump and and a barrel pinched from an rd 250. An lc barrel fits a 125/175 bottom end if your interested. No idea if it would run, port height, deck heights etc?. But illustrates the point.
  20. Spoke with Andy (elvis fan) yesterday. As of 3pm yesterday his green SR, yes the 80mph plus SR was nicked and left burned out. Wished him well but still sucks. He had just given it the works too. Chain, fork seals, oil and filters. Even had a full tank of gas. I hope the scum die of something painful.

    Mot done. All clear. Season begins. I was in the garage fixing the ruddy indicators that decided to stop working till after 10 last night when I was double checking. All I could find in my spares box was a relay from a mk2 escort. Worked would you believe it, older than the tdr same connections etc. Now you can hear the plink plik as they work.
  22. It is exactly that. But adding to several old threads is confusing and may well lead to confused answers that will be no help. You should start fresh.

    Ear protection

    An AGV KV3. Amazing. Without question the most comfortable and quietest helmet I have ever had. Its as loud without plugs as my old shoe was WITH. Although blackhat has the same and thinks its shite. Depends on you and your bike maybe?

    Ear protection

    I tried all sorts. Could not get on with any. Did not try the custom ones. Ended up buying a lid based very much about noise. Much better.
