I've had some success with melting a staple into the plastic, there are proper machines for it but I used a blowtorch and soldering iron.

Pe 175 T. Just about to rebuild my crank and the new crankpin is hollow from one end with a oil hole drilled to feed the big  end brg.   Recommendations on what side to fit the pin from and orientation of the oil hole??   Thanks.

Tech Talk / Suzuki PE ignition timing

 Good evening all, I have a PE 175T and a 400 and a few spare CDI boxes with no part number showing. Does anyone know the different timing specs as the only way I can see of sorting them is to run them and check with a timing light. The 175 seems to be a mix and match of parts, the magneto it came with made a good spark but was approx. 90° out? A visually identical replacement has the correct timing. Further investigation shows the magnets on the 90° one out in backwards? as in N/S instead of S/N ( checked with a compass). Any help appreciated .

Yes sunny at the weekend, that will be our summer gone :)  In Andover near the bottom of the small island. Near Salisbury plain that is great for trail riding even though it's a bit flat. Rode a couple of times in OZ, once up in Cairns / Port Douglas and once a couple of hours north of Melbourne.

Evening all, 54, race old clutter as well as modern stuff . Current bikes 250 ktm xc 2012, PE 175, PE400, KDX 200 89, KDX 200 86, KTM 520 03 in a 450 07 SXF frame.
Have access to all the toys at work and made a YZF shock fit the 86 KDX, YZF Fork internals in old KDX forks, auto clutch for the KDX and new top yokes. Enjoy working on them as much as riding. Great resource of info you have here, hope to maybe add a small bit.
