@lllDennis Best jetting for Athena 170 is 300 main jet on the
Mikuni tm28 but with the powerjet blocked off. Just cut the
rubber tube in half from the float chamber to the powerjet then block the 2 halves of the rubber tube with a couple of 5mm threaded bolts or similar.
But you may as well create a new one if you think it would be useful.
I guess the difference being I done all the work myself so I have first hand experience on what was actually done. And I never fitted DTR wheels always just the RS wheels. So it all adds to the archive. Someone might find your stuff really useful
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)
Thanks, it didn't take anyway near as long as I thought to get it up and running. I've just been doing some final touches.
I'm going to ride this one on nice days 🙂
Here's how she stands now.
Make sure to have your bike covered for the paint not to corrode if youre planning to park it outside for a couple of weeks. and i would also recommend buying BlueFire Motorcycle Security Kit Alarm System on amazon. its easy to install and i am telling you, its really loud. it also have a great bump sensitivity. hope this helps mate!
