Best place to store a motorcycle is indoors and if you cant do that a garage. I've had DT's parked outside chained up and been woken up in the night by the sound of rattling chains - had to sleep in the winter with the bedroom windows open just to try and hear if anything was happening to my bike!
Second this. I’m privileged on a level most arent with how secluded and private where I am is. People just don’t nose around here and there’s a real good community.
The sort of place where my next door neighbour left his pushbike outside for year because it had a flat and it never got moved, you know that type of area.
That still didn’t stop a van pulling up on our road and a couple boys coming around and start lifting up bike covers and walk off with one of his bikes
The truth is there isn’t a true deterrent for thieves, it’s just probability so make sure you do everything within your power to reduce those chances because even if you live in an area like mine you’re still at risk.
In a weird twist of fate though the thieves drew a short straw. They had a choice of trying me and my bike, my neighbours 83 ke100, cafe racer cg125 or the chink Lifan 125 dirt bike thing that has a seized engine, flat tyres and had sat for months. Guess which one the dull cunts robbed... yep you guessed it 😂😂😂
Needless to say, whilst the violation of that happening was definitely a reality all of the boys got a fucking good laugh out of them.
(Sidenote: some tools etc got stashed at arms length and around in case the cunts tried it again)
@lllDennis I read that the port timings were off by 3mm because apparently the barrel was based off a dtr200. How true that is...
Would love to see before and after dyno pulls though. See how the stock Athena compares to a modified one.
I have compared Athena 170 kit vs 3MB P (and 2RH) cylinders, the only 2 things that's off the athena kit is the piston taller than the stock,the ports are exact copy off the 3MB just a bit wider and the c port is little lower and matches more a 2RH cylinder
The 170 is a mix between the 200cc casing (for the cooling canals and ypvs location) and 125 portmap internally.I searched for a piston that has the dimensions of the 56mm and with bore of 65mm but there is not,only some aftermarket forged that are max 61mm have the right piston height (pin to top).
You do not need any specific diode, just enter 1A schottky diode, chosse a reasonable voltage and take the cheapest (3A etc. is also fine).To make the build more compact you can also use any other ground source eg from the high beam indicator:
