Re: V Force 4 Reed Valve

When I google searched “v force 4 reeds”, a lot of options came up. If you don’t see your matching reed block maybe reach out to DT and ask him what he sold you?

If you have your reed block apart maybe post a photo of it?

Find a shop that has a caustic soda hot tank.

Re: Posting parts abroad

Shipping is the big killer on a lot of these deals. It's bad both directions. Panels are even harder to move due to size.

Re: V force reed, are they worth it?

Ran them in my TS1. Felt very responsive. If you understand reed block theory they are a good thing.

RB20 and HPI ignition

I finally got around to getting a HPI light weight ignition for my RB20 sprinter.

Not the best video but love the way the bike sounds.

The rattle is body work. Not sure why the link is being weird.

Re: Rapido 225 tmx set up

that main seems really small.

My TS1225 with a TM35 was running a 290-310 main open mouth, depending on the weather (+400' ASL).

Re: Gori 200 - thin cylinder walls?

I have what I think is called the sport one on my riverside. Walls looked a little on the thin side at the base but not enough to worry about. What got me was the intake port was huge and the bore clearance was a little on the big side out of the box (would have liked it to be closer to .0035" but i...

When a crank twists it can destroy a lot of bits. Some will disagree but V blocks are not as accurate as truing the crank ...

Re: Gear Compatibility

No there is a difference it may only be small but it makes a big difference when you use it. eg the italian li150 2nd gear has the same teeth as a spanish but it is 105 compared to 106 across the teeth this means that it isn't quite meshing fully and can rip the teeth.It's why it takes the more kno...
