  1. Sounds like it, bet there is a 17tooth on the front rather than 16t... I had a 17 on mine but I found the last 2 gears even more useless, coming to hills was a nightmare aswell didn't pull as good as the 16t sprocket-got 16t on mine now and I can pull 60mph+ uphill no problem. Ken
  2. Happened to me coming back from work going up hill, puts a downer on things... Strange feeling having the rear tyre flopping about aswell. Ken
  3. If it's doing 70mph in 4th you should be happy mine tops out at 60mph in 4th and 75mph in 6th.. I find there isn't much in last 2 gears especially 6th I can only get away with 6th either on the flat or down hill.... If you can get your dt past 60mph with ease then you are fully derestricted, while my Reed switch was in place I would loose a lot of power and struggled to get to 50 never mind touching 70mph Cheers Ken
  4. Hello there. I'm not far away from you in Prudhoe! Ken
  5. Looking good there Will look much better when on the bike Ken
  6. Thanks man i got it, looks past my capabilitys to even understand it lol but it will be handy to keep hold of Cheers Ken
  7. Hi there To adjust idle rpm there should be a thumb screw turn it out anticlockwise slow until desired rpm reached! Speedo isn't working could be 3 things-cable snapped (most likely) speedo is broken or broken speedo drive (on front spindle) you need to get the front wheel jacked up disconnect cable by the clock end spin front wheel by hand and see if the cable inside is turning! As for the exhaust sounds a little strange, your saying the when its loose the bike runs better??? Either the exhaust system is blocked/coked up or there is a restriction in the chamber still. Hope this helps Ken
  8. I've got my dt so its up to 60mph in no time for on the roads its a little bit scetchy with the mich ac10 tyres but on the green lanes its perfect I am currently thinking about some spare wheels with road tyres on!! I don't think there is ever going to be a bike that is perfect on and offroad its just something we have to admit.. I had my dt out with a mate on his yz125 and he just left me behind blasting about but at the end of the day he was waiting for his father with trailer to pick him up but I just went on my way. Ken
  9. Well to be honest carbon reeds, full after market exhaust and a professional setup of the carb is all you want. The dt is setup for reliability so one you start with the tuning them the reliability will suffer!!! There is a dt125re with yz125 engine in on eBay now £1600
  10. Sorry pal you have the wrong end of the stick!! Wrap around hand gaurd are the ones that attach to handle bars then fit inside the bar at other end!! Not carbon wrap lol. Doesn't matter I have a pair now cheers Ken
  11. Could it be a 125 engine in a 50 bike? If its a 50cc I wouldn't put anymore cash into it really just part it out... Sounds like a lot of work is needed with no papers etc for the bike I personally wouldn't bother!!! Ken

    Save Mallory

    done... just like green laining the do gooders out there must not get there own way
  13. hey people im toying with the idea of tidying up the rear end of my dt, ive changed indicators to smaller clear lense bulb indicators which has cleaned up the look of the front end but im still not happy with the rear light/plate hanger... anyone point me in the right direction as to what to look for? either an all in one unit or a small led light and tail tidy bracket? as my rear mudgaurd has the light underneith im thinking maybe i could get away with a thin led strip light hopefully with built in numberplate lights. the look im after is basicly to pull all the rear componants up as close to the rear mudgaurd as i can, none of this bulky plastic stuffshowing. if anyone has any second hamdparts ill be listening!!! cheers ken
  14. That is what I call a trouser yawn, air is passed but no sound is made... Mine is more like a trouser cough lol!!! Good on her I say, she has prob had to put up with your raspers for a long time now lol Ken
  15. I know plenty of people sittin on there arse all day and have done for years, there the neighbours that look happy you can tell who goes to work because when you see them they look shattered (like me) But you can't blame them when society has made it so its better having your arse wiped by the state than be punished for working hard and bringing up a family!!! If I come into money I'm out of this shit hole! Ken
  16. Tax, immigration and pc state is the main factors, its not the fact that I think all 3 subjects should be abolished what I am trying to say they have all been exhausted to a worrying level I have had a 2% pay rise in 5yrs but have seen everything going up in price. So many things wrong. My girlfriend had to drop her working hours because if we put the cost of child care next to her wages we would not gain anything (she works for NHS admin) she doesn't get paid verywell don't think she makes £250pr week full time I earn £350pr week after tax but I'm left with £80pr week for my own use, used to be left with £200pr week to myself before the bairn was born an she had to drop her hours Sort out the tax Immigration Childcare And stop trying to wrap everyone in cotton wool you fucking retards Ken
  17. I'm looking into getting something like this for when I'm out at night, I live in Northumberland and surrounded by country roads with "passing places" and no lighting etc so could be a god send to me!!! Ken
  18. Welcome!! Check the Rees switch is out it retards the powervalve, pull light shroud off and you should see it taped up tucked away or it will still be in back of clocks pull it out and tap it up! Best looking at link airhead posted up, helped me no ends!! Ken
  19. £800 not to bad priced either! What engine would be producing 33hp? Ken
  20. Decent condition sm wheels wanted, prefer painted rims to chrome but I'm open to anything... Hopefully with everything on them so I can swap over from my enduro setup!!! Cheers Ken
  21. Hmmm I'm looking at a road reg yz on eBay now!!! Got me thinking now Ken
  22. It's not a dream if its doable who says once full test is passed said person likes his little dt but would like it to have a little more gallop and has access to a yz engine? I can get a yz engine for mine but I haven't passed my test and I'm not competent enough to do it myself. Ken
