Re: New electronic kit anyone?

This kit sounds great.
Would it be possible to give a few more details on the air cooled diy kit? Like to know what mods need doing to the crank and what other parts need to be sourced (CDI, instruments, ignition key unit)
Thanks

Exhausts that fit without bodywork modifications?

Hi, Is it possible to list a few exhaust that fit with no bodywork mods at all? (no trimmed footboard, no rubbing on panels)

Can people only list them if they know for certain, Thanks Dave

Re: Del'Orto or imposter?

If you take off the air filter on top of the carb you can see the size stamp on the carb, you should see 24/24g if its off a T5.
the carb is also a bit shorter than a P2 carb as it is made to go with the improved air filter which is deeper but has to fit inside the standard air box.

Re: Basic tune to a cast iron 175
