chrome bore means less weight and better cooling for long moto s The power is just refined but you could match that with a port match and clean up.

Meanwhile in Czechoslovakia, a top pops off a stubbie... 8)

Bullshit , it was nothing to do with him , he rode CZ for at least as long as KTM if not longer. Nothing but respect from the whole community.

Well he did ride a CZ before a KTM. Wasn't his fault a KGB plant put a branch thru Falta's spokes.

yes he rode CZ before and after KTM , not by choice of course.

The top shock mounts on'75/'76 frames point down, on '77/'78 frames, they point up. 1979 is a new frame again & was the first of the top mount being a stud, it uses a different air box set up as well.

big k , think I might have a facebook addiction problem.I keep looking for  the like icon to click on your posts.

How does it suit all those bikes, They would all have different fork tube sizes wouldn't they?

yes , the stem is right for those bikes but he needs to state the fork tube size.

Stan was it this year that Anton Alers had his accident?

Yeah Jerry that was the race. Anton and Ronnie came through the field and were making ground on Jack when they tangled and crashed at the end of the main straight.


Are you sure about that? I thought that the accident happened as Anton was attempting to pass Ronnie for the lead with 2 laps to go, they had already passed Jack who then passed the fallen and went on to an easy win.

Buy one meter of 20 x 20 RHS , cut a V into one end about 50mm long then close up in a vise. If you can, weld up the V and grind smooth , now push firm into fork and hold with a shifter.

You can't push into the damper rods on the Ds they have a turned top with holes on the side.

« on: February 26, 2017, 11:54:15 AM »

Would anyone have a pair of front fork rebound/top out springs for a 1981 Maico 490 they could sell me? I'm after the long soft pair not the short stiff ones.

Thanks, Ralph
might have used ones , what are the dimensions?
