CZ / 981 Clutch oil seals and tank colour and JETS
« on: December 01, 2023, 10:39:58 AM »
Hi Gents,

Had the 1973 380 going with new Vape Ignition. Brilliant.

New issue is oil leak behind the dry clutch.

Question - what are the sizes and or id numbers for the seal (and type maybe)  and oring/s   ????  Possible 50 x 65 x 8 mm but not sure if single or double lip, or spring etc if it matters.

Question - size of the Oring on the kick starter shaft ?

Question - I want to paint a steel tank in the original '73 Blue colour. Any idea what the colour code is or close to it?

Many thanks once again

Hi Guys,

            How do I get the damper rods apart on my AW?  I want to add PD valves but need to reduce the preload. I'm told that we need to shorten the alloy spacer that sits within the damper rod. I take it I need to get the alloy screw/nut cap that screws up into the fork leg. But it is on hard.

If anyone has fitted PD valves be good to get their views on the how too and oil specs etc.

Many thanks

Hi Guys,

Did a 73 250 a few years ago. Now doing a 73 380. The 250 has gone to a new owner.

I am looking for the parts book to check for missing or odd bits on the 380.

Is it possible to down load an electronic copy from somewhere?

Kind regards

Guys I need advice on fitting up the air filter on a 1983 IT 250 K.

It has a cage with 2 x 6mm threaded bolts attached to it, the foam filter and the bit I have the problem with a pressed metal ring the same shape as filter cage.

Where does that pressed metal bit go?

ie Onto the cage then put the filter over both OR put the filter on the cage then the metal bit over the to, basically sandwiching the foam filter between the cage and the pressed metal thing.

I have asked two Yamaha IT YZ owners close to me and neither had any idea.

Thanks in advance

« on: June 09, 2019, 03:13:37 PM »
Afternoon guys,

KLX used at Braidwood VTR the other week pinged due to lean neeedle.

Owners manual says it should be a a Mikuni  Jet Needle  6H2-2.

Not whats in it. Had a look on Mukunioz but couldn't find it.  I heard it might be a `special' .

What can be used as a standard replacement needle?

Kind regards

Hi guys,

Is there a replacement or oem plastic chain buffer for the KLX 250 around anywhere. I had one in the Cart in the USA then I checked with an email and they said Oh no we don't have them.

Cheers for any help
