KTM / KTM 250 1988 gearbox oil

So, my 250 lives again . Had the rotted water pump cover but with Russell Brown's expertise he cast a new one and all is good. :)
I thought the gearbox oil capacity was around 600ml but I am not certain. The old mag cover that probably had it cast on there is
in the bin so I thought I would check. Also., I have been using Castrol MTX. Is ATF  a better option? Thanks.

KTM / Clutch Cover 1988 KTM 250

The magnesium clutch cover on my 88 250 has,predictably, rotted out.
This is the blue cover that also includes the water pump. I have "liquid steeled" it
twice but now she is beyond repair and I need to source another one.
I have emailed Andre with no luck. There was a rumour that someone was recasting these in alloy
but I have had no luck with Google or Ebay.
Hoping that someone may be able to point me in the right direction.
Thanks!

Wanted / Yamaha DT air filter cage
« on: July 15, 2015, 07:26:12 PM »
So, I am helping a mate bring his 81 DT175 roaring back to life.
Found it in a pretty bad way down on his mates farm but we are slowly
getting it back together.
Took the airbox cover off expecting a crumbly airfilter and found worse. No filter at all.
So, the local yam shop has him sorted for a filter element but we have no plastic filter cage.
The yam shop told us the dreaded "NLA" according to the computer for the cage and fleabay is no help
so wondering if anyone has one.
Thanks in advance.

Heres another tip. No one wants a prospective buyer at their house. Arrange to meet them at a servo that is convenient.
With driveoffs/robberies etc most modern servos are equipped with more CCTV cameras than a casino.
Same rules apply. Without the cash,dont take it off the trailer. Take a short video of it starting and running if you dont want to offer a test ride.
