Re: Mugello 240 ??

Interesting thread. I have no idea who built and set up this GT240 but with out a doubt if your having so many problems it will be due to bad build set up or both. This all sound svery much like a guy who contacted me mud last year who had a 240 built 18 months previously which had given him nothin...

Re: Smiths Speedo Recalibration

I'm thinking of giving up on this as it's in the too hard box. My headset has been customised and the Smiths speedo is a good fit, but not having it calibrated is a big issue. Surely someone must've had one converted or sorted. I know a few guys just bend the needle so it reads ok at a mid speed li...

Re: Mugello 240 ??

I would definately stick with the GT kit personally, I have well over 6k miles on my 240 which only had around 200 miles on it when I rode it to Adria in Italy fully loaded up with camping gear. I was riding with a mate on a GT186 and we were pushing along at between 50-55 mph with a couple of blas...

Re: Mugello 240 ??

Yes you could retain your existing crank and use the 70mm Mugello cylinder to get you to 240 cc or why not look at the RT kit which is cheaper than the Mugello. If it were me and for all round cheapness I’d be looking at a Rapido cylinder, head and piston. Remember your GT crank comes with an 18mm ...

Re: Mugello 240 ??

I can well imagine there being problems with such a large bore all cast iron cylinder. I possess Mugellos & Rapido amongst other cylinders, but would suggest that the Rapido is a very good cylinder to opt for if you do swap. The longer stroke that you would maintain is an ideal opportunity to optim...

Re: Mugello 240 ??

I have no knowledge of mugellos but I do run a gt240 on a gt casing. Did you have your seizure problems while running in? I’ve 10000 ish miles on mine and it’s been great but without a temp guage I’d have blown it sky high during the break in miles! For the first 500 odd miles it ran very hot when ...
