Re: Imola gearing

genral rule is your final drive ratio is dictated by your choice of pipe, that been said im just building one of these with an af close ratio 4 speed box and im going for a 5.1/1 ratio to make sure it can rev enough, its getting a 60mm crank so I can lower the port timings a bit to get a more rideab...

Re: TSR Evo Tail can support

you other option would be to alter the bracket, ive apapted one on my gp and its more or less under the end can, I do have a non standard exhaust so I had to make my own mounting on the engine, then a rubber bobbin, then cut and welded the bracket to fit between the two.

Re: Which Exhaust

af rayspeed have just brought out a new pipe, might be just what you need Holty Anymore info on the new AF pipes spec? I belive the pipe in question was to fit the rb but they do ts1 and cast iron stub versions, the dyno printout showed gains over tsr evo and franspeed, right across the rev range.

Re: lambretta 290 rotax

just a little update, this has been on the road now for 2 years which sort of surprised me, biggest fault ive had in that time has been the exhaust cracking, ive had a few electrical issues which ive addressed now, but it developed a few oil leaks, rear hub bearing and kickstart shaft which made me ...

Re: RB20 long stroke

ive done one of these, I think it ended up with a packer top and bottom as the piston came out of the top of the barrel, used a mammoth head and doweled it to the barrel, did a bit of alteration to the ports as well.

Re: Lloydie's S2 (slow) restoration

If I pack up the footboard it needs to go so high that I run out of thread on the rear runners. I've bought some threaded M5 (M4?) sleeves so could extend them(as below), but not ideal as it messes with the leggies as well and I'll have to put probably 10mm of packing under the main and front cross...
