I run R40 for all of it. I change the oils after every race meeting.
It's the only oil I have found that will stand the heat. (not wishing to start another oil debate !)

is that castrol castor oil ?
i used it in my weslake 500 speedway. it can "pit" engine internals if sitting for time.

All the castor oils are hydroscopic, R30 (The 2 stroke oil) is quite bad for it.

Don't go second hand route, if you've got to split it, do it proper....even if it takes a little longer.

When you did the carb swap from the 76, Did you bring across the slide/needle as well or just the carb body and used the 74 slide/needle?

Whats the best way to determine your current spring rate? Somewhere between 7.8 to 9.7 kg/mm.

Not worth fixing........I'll take it off your hands, save you the heart ache.
Seriously, they have an interesting fork set up, there is a damper rod thats attached to the fork cap that slides up into a bush in the fork leg, hard to explian you'll know when you see it. If you decide to not go ahead, I'd like first refusal, got a 406 that needs a little brother.

Tech Talk / Re: Changing triple clamps
« on: April 26, 2018, 06:31:22 PM »
I've got a set of 42mm TT 250 clamps at the moment, but now I'm wondering if it's even possible to use tapered bearings. I'm wondering if the recess in the headstem that seats the cup for the ball bearings in there now will allow for a tapered bearing set up.
I'm not sure there will be enough depth in the recess to allow the tapered bearings to seat right down into the headstem.

Tech Talk / Changing triple clamps
« on: April 25, 2018, 06:09:14 PM »
XT 250 2 valve,
Looking at doing a fork swap for something 42/43mm Yamaha. Trouble is the standard steering head bearings are the bicycle type (loose ball bearings), anything 42/43mm has tapered bearings.
Question is does anyone have experience with a swap of this description ? What triple clamps did you use?

Plenty of internal tank liners out there....Kreem is a brand that comes to mind.
