Tech Talk / Re: Unlocking a motor
« Last post by tony27 on Yesterday at 07:01:58 PM »
Motor freed up amazingly easily, only had the kero/brake fluid mix in the cylinder for a couple of days.
After washing the motor with degreaser & the water blaster I loosened off the head & cylinder base nuts, top of the piston was fairly clean & the head has no signs of damage at all. Out of curiousity I tapped the top of the piston with a dead blow hammer (no room to swing it) & thought I saw movement so I kept going.

This is what I found. Piston is in good condition but fitted backwards, somehow the rings hadn't snagged the exhaust ports

Bore within spec & only in need of a hone but new rings may not be available

The quad was kitted out with track marking tools. I only cut trees that the saw blade on my whipper snipper could handle Don ok
I'm seeing you just riding that thru the scrub with all those cutters and saw going flat out carving an awesome trail ???? but its pretty scary

Suzuki / Re: Suzuki TM125 Front End/Forks Needed
« Last post by 211 on Yesterday at 02:21:04 PM »
specifically TM250 74/75 forks are the go using TM 250 triples from the same years.
RM triples will not be Ok and a knowing scrutineer will ping you
The first RM forks are shorter by about 20mm in length and have the drain hole in a different spot but are otherwise the same at the TM externally. I never saw the drain hole position as being a problem, some may but that would be overly pedantic to me; quite a few pre 75 bikes have that fork but you have to know what to look for to spot it.
I wouldnt fit TM125 forks to a TM125 if I was going to race it as the TM250 are stiffer, longer travel and the TM250 brake is way better.

Tech Talk / Re: Alluminium disc rotors, your thoughts?
« Last post by Lozza on Yesterday at 12:24:45 PM »
Hey Guy's,

l've been thinking of making an alloy rear brake disc for either my dirtbike or roadracer. l don't use a rear brake overly hard; vertially never on my roadracer, plus l don't like a savage rear brake.

l was thinking that alloy might have a lower friction coefficient plus be much lighter (less unsprung weight and all that), yeh it would wear out quicker but eh?

Idea's on what grade alloy; less chance of shattering or warping?

Aluminium discs are plasma sprayed  I *think* Zanzani were the first to do that on the Kobas bikes early 80's ........................but local hot shot Aaron Morris who picks up a few rides with the French R2CL team in France (Le Mans24h and Suzuka) told me after 2 or 3 hours the rear brake goes metal to metal, they don't change it because of the time it would take at a pit stop and it feels just like you put a valve spring between the lever and m/c
