    Well they had done superbly well...

    I knew they need doing eventually. These were 10+ years old when I bought them and this has been my trusty steed for ~10+ years, once daily then stored for 4 years now just a weekend warrior.

    Painless process to strip and rebuild and the kits are readily available on eBay.

    All cleaned, rebuilt, new oil and refitted.

    These are fully adjustable and I must admit, have just been on whatever setting they came with off the MX bike I bought them from. Since this is a road warrior, I've stiffened the suspension up a fair amount. I'll be interested in seeing how this now performs on the road!

    The last ride out I did ~70 odd miles, the handling was becoming very poor. So I'm looking forward to the next adventure on it.

    @Calum I think it was £45 but it must have been about 10 years ago. Not a DT either it was a vfr400r nc30 that stopped charging the battery. They must know their stuff about motorcycle stators as I found the advert in the back of MCN. Also they claim to have most models on the shelf ready to exchange for quick turnaround.

    Looks like I have the same stator set up I got a dtre engine missing the stator so I fitted the spare I had from what I believe is an old tzr125 it's the 3 coil one with the matching flywheel then took the spragg clutch off the back of the X flywheel and it's a direct fit onto the "tzr" flywheel

    @skunkno1 I am not going to comment. I run Silkolene Comp 2 Plus and have the same issue 🤣 But I'm not bothered by it.

    @declan

    I know, but the sight glass is problematic. I’ve seen posts where people thought the oil had disappeared but really had gone above the glass 🙂

    If my gear change feels smooth, I’ve got oil 😜

    @kevb1967 I've heard that the y1 is the highest compression head but I'm not sure on that I tried researching but didn't find anything

    Only real way to do it is to troll the breakers yards. Not easy in these flooweey times 😜 If you find out anything let us know...

    @markus-w It appeared to be kinked under the fuel tank and so I couldn't see it. I also have the tank a good clean out which helped a lot I think

    @Calum said in GoProKid95's 2006 DT125RE (Supermoto Conversion):

    Aww I'm sorry it got robbed!

    Always heart breaking to see that.

    Looks like a lot of hard work was put into this as well!

    It's not a proper DT until it's been stolen

    @Glynn123 was looking at other options like ktm duke wheels but got these for £100 plus I like the look of them. Was thinking of fitting the front with a 110 wide tyre and the rear with 140 but I'll see how it goes.
