I used to go to school with the son of the bloke that owned it (used to be Ballards) he had a mad max kinda buggy made out of an old Austin 1100 we used to drive around out the back! They used to get all their sandblasting done up at Hospital Metalcraft IIRC
I remember the blue bus they had later on as well for the bikes! Wicked memories! 🙂 …
Sorry late reply, only got round to putting new plug on the other day but yeah no worries man
Replacement plug worked nicely. I replaced the regulator/rec and starter solenoid with oem parts as well and started lovely off the button. No more clicking from the starter solenoid or dodgy aftermarket rectifier going up in smoke
So the converter is only converting to match the KPH face then and not a real converter i.e. really changing to mph. Sounds like I need to find a proper MPH speedo after all! Don't suppose you have a good one you fancy selling? Appreciate your help as you have saved me a lot of aggro. Cheers
Don’t forget that the oil pump is calibrated to the carb. It’s the right amount of oil for the air-petrol mix going in. If you put a much bigger carb on I would start thinking about the oil pump…
Do you get what I’m saying? The pump is running at 50:1 why would premixing at 50:1 be any different? Think about it 🙂 …
PS what carb does the Dtr 200 run? Cause the pump is calibrated to the carb, not the cylinder…
Now there’s some miles on it We’ve been opening it up a bit. Still running Kmh clocks and I kinda know they will be out but with me pushing 14 stone that’s close to 90kg in new money with jacket helmet boots n gloves it’s revving out in 5th and pushing 9.5k in top well into the 120-130kmh. So I’m well happy. One thing I am really pleased about is it’s still pulling past the power through the gears and it didn’t drop past 8k with a bit of an incline. I’m sure if I was 17 again weighing in at 10 stone wet it would be well into the red.
The exhaust tone from the full DEP just makes you want to blast it everywhere
@markus-w cheers mare just wanted to be 100% sure, just cleaned carb today n was full of varnish looking petrol cos bikes been sat ages, jets were blocked too really dirty tbh! Cleaned n refitted but just looped head hose to other head pipe n done same with carb pipes.. I'm in Scotland, cheers mate👍🏼
@calum pulled it out to get a pic ended up pulling legs to see what crack is, dtx stanchions are shorter, the insides are slightly different too ive added a shim/washer ontop of the springs seems to have lifted it abit but still not quite there, not sure how to upload a pic as it says its too big of file
@Baileyboy2008 well like Calum pointed out there’s no such thing as pinning your valve half way if the valve is have way closed you will get zero power above 6k open her all the way and then see what it does
Measure across the pick up sensor. Make sure that you are getting current to trigger the CDI. You will want to follow that pulse from the pickup to the CDI. From the CDI you will see it go to the primary coil. From there it should go to the secondary mutal winding and out to the HT lead. It's as simple as that. Somewhere you are losing that signal.
