Maico / Re: Maico 490 Corte Cosso Shock Rebuild - Contacts
« on: January 16, 2018, 07:34:49 PM »
I also have a set of Corte Cosso's to be rebuilt, I have heard that Ohlins internals go straight in, and that Paul Stacker is the expert to see.
Pretty sure a friend with quite a few Maicos had that done here in New Zealand, definitely had a mono shock upgraded that way

I'd try other stanchion in the lower first to confirm that the lower is the problem

he allready has your credit card details ::)
For a card that doesn't exist anymore. With the 1000% price increase you have to wonder how long his other sites like instagram & Facebook have before the charges start

Photos don't show for me when I use the links
Interesting to me is my photos above are still showing even though I didn't pay the Zuckerberg ransom

Wanted / Re: IT465 Clutch cover

Unfortunately when I sold my YZ465 last year the original clutch cover went with the parts that I gave the new owner
If you do find a new cover I would suggest boring out the hole for the kickstart & fitting a bronze bush

That's a new 1 to me Geoff, always used to strap them to ute deck with base facing away from cab. Can see what the reasoning is but in reality when did you last here of the valve getting knocked off a bottle during transportation

I of the guys over here has been running a oko d slide carb on his xl175 that he uses in both vmx & vinduro for years. They're cheap enough although the chinese knockoffs can vary a lot

CZ taps thread into the tank so the opposite of what you're wanting. I wonder how much different they are to the taps Yamaha used at the same time, they used the funny nut as well. I'll check the thread size for you on Tuesday

Do the PE taps thread into the tank or over a threaded boss? My CZ uses OMG taps & I can measure the threads for you tomorrow if needed

Get hold of Darryl August, his goes well. Capt88 might be able to help as well

Been around for quite a number of years, only have experience of their 28mm d-slide carb, have a couple of the power jet oval bored 30mm carbs which I suspect may be the copies
Early versions weren't known for having great quality chrome on the slides but I haven't had any problems
Main improvement with trials bikes over keihins that have been noted worldwide is less fuel out of the overflows when hopping. I picked up 1 of the clear floatbowls which is quite helpful & really cheap

I've fitted a couple of smaller PWK's and found same deal with slow running and pilot passages. Also found that the seal of the jet block and the passage alignment might need a blueprint. These were OKO branded units.
Those will be the Chinese rip off Okos, saw a thread on how to pick them. Real Okos have Taiwanese flag on box is first clue, next is jets actually have markings
Have been running a real Oko for years on my Sherco & it's as good if not better than a Keihin PWK

So far the bushes listed over the counter are either 32mm or 35mm bore so it looks like it may end up being bronze bushes made to fit
