Re: P200e issue!

Nice one Martin, its always a good feeling when you find the cause. I only asked because I had a similar problem, I was swopping jets every time I rode it, in the end I changed the HT lead and put a rubber suppresser cap on, bingo, it must have been arking through one or the other when bouncing down...

Quality of the 2 stroke oil used will effect the lifespan, Putoline MX5 has always been my prefered choice on kitted engines.

Re: Help! SIP Road 2 Fitting.

Recently fitted one on my P2 and had the same problem, I cut the cage off and had to elongate the holes to get a bolt through, worst than that though, my new SIP 2 came with a hole in it, I email SIP over a month ago but have had no reply, they appear to be cocking a deaf un.

Was the last thing I checked but also found that the crank bearings were shot causing the seal to fail
How much play did you have on the crank, side to side & in and out.

Re: Dellorto Si 24/24 help please.

Just ordered a richer idle Martin, I,v just read your post about you flywheel side oil seal leaking, did you have to buy a flywheel holding tool and puller to change it or is the another way of getting the flywheel off.
