Lots of great help and some great people on here too,,
Seems like some of the good contributors from the past are sadly gone, though one upside is
so have some of the dickheads ;D

Its amazing how many times I google a bike question and in results it shows debates, discussion and answers of this forum.
Thanks for keeping it alive Kenneth,,

Gooday all,

Has anyone ever noticed which replacement brands are hardest or longer wearing?
Or which brands are junk and wear quickly,,, = metal quality?

I am repairing building some XR600 engine projects for myself.

The counter shafts have flogged out on the spline where the sprocket mounts on.

I am thinking cheap quality sprockets maybe wear quickly, then in turn ruin the shaft as they flog
 back and forth? ?

Wow, that's like pretty serious,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
Well done Toby Price  8)

Ok Dave, a weak spark will certainly make for difficult starting and poor running.  Shows up when opening the throttle, especially under load.

You have swapped out a lot, except for magnetic rotor?

These days I test the magnetism of every rotor that pass through my hands.
I have a jar of m6 nuts.
I lightly hand engrave the result of how many on each tested rotor(then highlight with paint marker or texta). All other info on rotors is factory stamped so there is no mix up with a hand engraved figure.

I have noticed massive variations of magnetism on identical to look at OLD ROTORS.

It is no problem if you don't have a puller yet and want to compare or confirm your suspicions.
You can see how many nails or whatever while it is still mounted on a steel crank end.
I have noticed little to no difference whether testing its capacity while mounted on a crank or removed.

I also include an earth wire between all ignition components when I make harnesses.

Hope this helps a bit?
Have fun  :)

Top shock mounts rearward,
Chain adjustment at s/arm pivot,
Oil tank in backbone 4/stroke,
Engine cradle mounts looks like it would house a BSA engine?
Long backbone,

Could it be a very early BSA/CCM?

Me too,,spewing,, bashed up rib cartilage,, everytime I get up and about? I wish I had of stayed in bed  >:(

Billet CNC hubs and nipples ??
Not a bad looking bike for the money though, wonder if they'll be ADR compliant...

Would be worth a try if they do?

So with a proven engine design, reliability depends on quality control, like,, "class of fits",
"Metallurgy" and "electronics" for control, such as electrically operated power valve,,,

I personally love the vacuum operated PV, like on Maico's and KTM's etc

Engine Based on Yamaha DT230, apparently they bought the entire DT230 engine production line of Yamaha.

That sounds very lucky.... that one, very lucky :o
So loud when it happens. Spectacular releasse of energy when it goes down.

We got off light with this one. In the last one it was bigger than Texas, it blew over 150 meter boxes to peices... It didn't just fire the light globes out of my ceiling it actually fired the baynet socket fittings out of the gyprock. Power GPOs out of walls, fried everything. Took them over four days to get us up and running again that time, without meters for weeks 8) . They rebuilt all our boxes with smart meters etc ...only 6 hours out on this one...

A magpie blew that big transformer in the first pic 15 years ago.
 He had a nice warm buzzy nest up in the top of it. Used to think your flirting with danger mate.... anyway what happened, he had found a nice piece of wire and took it home to adorn his nest... kablamo! Feathers over a hundred foot radius  ;D
