Re: BGM front dampers, too short....

You could check you have the fat lower bump stop if its not new ,there are different sizes about ,or not 100% ideal but a thin packer between the fork and bump stop would move the link up relative to damper bracket you might need slightly longer bolts. Yes I have brand new thick bump stop. Don't re...

Re: GT186 manifold - carb fouling engine mount

I love the TM24, as it is such a responsive little carb, and wanted it on the GT186. I have another GT186 with 115 conrod and 8mm packer. Does anyone think this would allow it to clear the mount? I agree. It's a fantastic little carb, and far superior to the PHBL. An 8mm packer might give it suffic...

Re: BGM 225 is it plug and play?

I’ve fitted a couple and about as near to “plug and play” that you’ll get. Very good fitting instructions and plenty of jetting advice available. It’s the ancillaries ( carb, manifold, exhaust) that will determine if you need to modify the cowling, but it’s just a bit of trimming in these areas (the...

Re: Avanti Upgrade

I fitted one of Ron's 70mm Mitaka pistons to my Rapido. When I fitted a reed valve to the Rapido I cut the hole and skirt the same as his TS1 version and it was fine. The ring pegs also allowed me to cut a boost port.

Re: Finally have the LiS 185cc running ok

Glad you are out and about now and I hate to be the bearer of bad tidings, but I've jut stripped down a 225 version after about 450 miles and it had a ring gap of 1.3mm! It looks to be a combination of ring and bore wear so you may have to keep a check on yours.

Re: SIP Speedo set up.

Got to disagree, the revs setting has bugger all to do with the speed setting. You have to tell the speedo you are using the external sensor rather the cable (referred to as internal from memory) then you have to tell it how many pulses per wheel revolution ( if you have one magnet I expect it shou...

I’d switch to the cable with the built in threaded section and do away with this adjuster. One less thing to worry about
I agree with you about the new inner cable with threaded end, but you still need the spring in theory to keep tension on the adjuster nut ;)
