Newbie (1/14)



  1. Main decision is to hone or rebore..got a buddy gonna hone it then measure bore and we will decide from there before I order a piston. Its already bored 1.5 oversize
  2. Im told the port chamfers dont look too good
  3. So this DT always pulled better then my 2nd one with a rebuilt engine..which could mean it was running bit lean. Ive never opened the engine and always had bit of a piston slap noise..but ran it about 2000km (only used for short trips). Then just over a year ago got a weird noise after a 1st gear power wheelie in which I probly wasnt quick enough into 2nd. Decided to park it until such time I could give it proper attention. Head and barrel off and found huge play on conrod..piston and bore not too bad..so engine will be split to do crank. Will post more pics to keep u posted.
  4. Pretty much..had a donor 1KT bike which came with all the fairing bits
  5. I have had a TZR250 refusing to run on both cylinders..replacing a plug cap sorted it
  6. needle 4 notches from top souns very rich..i run 2nd from top..made huge difference to that flat spot
  7. Just thought I would share how nicely a TZR250 1KT fairing fits a Deltabox 125.
  8. Thanks Cynic All i know is..had no spark..changed stator..then we had spark
  9. Hi..i have a TZR250 1KT which after restoration found the bike had no spark. Took it to a friend who after some testing decided to replace stator with a spare he had. He wanted his stator back so I had mine rewound..tested for spark and we put it back in but found it had no spark again. I know my stator works so after some enquiring have been told there is a difference in the 1KT and 2MA ignition systems (one uses earth to kill spark and other uses positive) which could mean bypassing something in the ignition switch to get it working. Im still using the borrowed stator and trying to get the guy to sell it to me. Can anyone shed some light on what is going on?
  10. Oh and had a CBX1000 for awhile..but after starting issues decided all my stuff rather have kickstarts..and preferably Yamaha. Hi Slice..dont u remember me?..from sunny Cape Town..SA..u guys helped me with restoring some DT`s and my LC about 3yrs ago.
  11. Ok here we go.. This one is now sold Still got 2x DT175 Still got the LC..black one in front TZR125 closest to camera is mine Still got the XT500 Just restored a TZR250 1KT Our 2 stroke group..really enjoy the 2t road bikes these days
  12. cant remember how to post pics here anymore
  13. Hi Used to be very active on here while restoring an RD350 a couple of years ago. Feeling ive neglected this group so just want to say hi again..must post some pics of what my collection looks like these days. How is Airhead and Slice?..cant remember everyone im sad to say.
  14. Hi Guys This a fairly long 31min video of our ride out on Sunday which shows nice route thru CT from Blouberg over to Hout Bay, Chapmans Peak and Noordhoek. Weather not so good, but was at least cool. Some RD350`s..GT750`s and Aprilias..among others. Camera bike is an RDLC. Pity the RD500`s didn't come with this time. Hope you enjoy.
  15. Should be..although cable angle is pretty way out. Wouldn't like to try it myself..soon as you remove the needle to change faces, spring behind it loses all its tension.
