Are you saying the timing marks were out?

How light do you mean?
Full circle racing's site seem to show a couple of different shades of gold
My YZ465 had old Sun rims, not sure how that compared to what they do now

Penton imports has given up selling PVL so you'll need to look elsewhere

Not shown anywhere as a separate part, everything else apart from the main body look to have been able to be bought separately
Quite possible that it's common to a heap of taps but you won't know without comparing. John Tate (Davey Crockett) may be able to confirm, he did a run of replacement threaded sections for tanks that fitted multiple models

I for one hope these old bike forums don't die out , to be replaced by the dreaded Facebook.
But if that is what people prefer it will happen over time.
To be fair Facebook+groups don't seem too bad,
its Facebook+ individual people is where it goes wrong, and gets a bad name
The Photobucket situation doesn't help forums, but what will happen when Facebook end up owning most of the internet  ?
I bet they will start charging $$$ just like Photobucket
Who do you think owns Photobucket now? The huge number of ads started around the time Zuckerberg bought it

Competition / Re: VMX ........... PRE 82 or EVO or pre 80 or pre 85

What Brad is getting at is in Europe people are taking linkage bikes & welding shock mounts to the frame & swingarm, using late 90s conventional forks with brackets to anchor brake plates.
I've even seen hubs machined to run a DLS brake plate on each side of the front wheel
Would you really like seeing a class of these bikes running at a VMX event? Sure Evo isn't perfect but at least the bikes actually existed back in the early 80s

Strange place for them to go. Do the bikes run head stays in about that point?
Try rubbing both head & barrel on wet & dry sitting on a piece of plate glass to see if 1 of the 2 has a low spot

Prototype monoshock dirt bike was a CZ, both CZ & Suzuki turned it down before Yamaha bought the idea
Shock used in the prototype was out of a Citreon from memory

I'm interested to know what piston your using (single ring) if you don't mind sharing..?
Markings on top & lack of teflon coated skirt would suggest Wiseco

Should be a easy job, get the old 1 out & measure what size the shaft is to make the hole the right side.
Anyone who can use a lathe half decent can whip a new 1 up quite quickly

Going on how scuffed the piston is both front & rear I'd replace it, will rattle otherwise.
Can you feel any of the scratches on the bore with a fingernail, that will be the deciding factor on whether a quick hone is all that is needed for the cylinder

Husqvarna / Re: Husky cr250 Mikuni 36mm jetting specs?
« on: July 29, 2017, 05:51:36 PM »
Try the original needle with everything else the same, I was supplied a jet kit for my CZ when I first fitted the reed valve & found it really rich through the middle, changing clip position didn't make much difference but refitting the 6FJ6 needle cleaned things up
Easy to do as a back to back test

You'll get a email soon saying that your account saying that your account is grandfathered until the end of your current subscription when to get what costs $39 you need to upgrade to the plus500 plan which is the megabucks plan
I'll see if I can save the email elsewhere & link to it as a test

Received an email from the thieves saying I'm okay until my current plan expires in November, guess that gives me time to save all my photos before deleting the account.
I really hope their sudden loss of a lot of business makes them rethink things before then

CZ / Re: New 1973 CZ 250.

Have seen the listing already Morley, don't see things like this pop up very often & probably first time I've seen something like this in New Zealand.
Actually wouldn't mind finding either a CZ or Jawa enduro just for something different
So far photobucket hasn't screwed me yet although mine isn't a free account
