Cheers Chuckle. SA63; it matches the OE shock length. I'll have a measure up next time I'm in the garage. I didn't want to go for a 144, or whatever as typically with the big bore, it shifts the power lower, and makes it less willing to rev, particularly ... more »

Yeah, TM shock is the same length as they share all the shock / swingarm geometry with the wheel framed CR's. I've got a '92 barrell and head on mine, so have gone to a flat-topped piston (wiseco) to suit the big-bore, as round topped >'91 pistons ... more »

Doesn't touch at full droop, and because of the way the linkage moves, the link moves up as part of the progression.

Nice plan. Hope it works out. The bike's looking great. Steel framed TM250 shock

They came from Dirk Timmer in the Netherlands as far as I remember. The quality's terrible, and they're not sized correctly either so they overlap the bolt holes. I just stuck them on because I couldn't be bothered to send them back. I actually dragged

Liked that article like a tramp loves chips :D Quite cool to know the motor bits were cast locally to me too.

Hahaha. Ubiquitous mole grips / hammer shot. (Only way to install KTM footpegs correctly)

Very cool Pat. Sure it'll be a beauty. What look will it have? Fro or Seb?

I can imagine that. I enduro a modern KTM 200 with a toned-down motor that'll lug 3rd at walking pace and pick up cleanly. Excels on the technical routes, and doesn't beat me up too much either. Smooth linear power, and makes sure it all gets to the

Lovely little retro machine. Superb.

Good luck with the recovery Nino. Nice to see they focused on weight and fitted you with titanium parts rather than heavy old stainless.

Good to see something different. I'm actually in the process of stripping my '09 to make an '82 throwback (same vintage as me). After 6 years of enduro and hare and hounds, it's earnt itself a refresh.

My '89 125 shifted really well. It was an ex race bike though and had loads of work done. Not sure what though, as I never split the cases on it. Polished gearbox parts I'd imagine. Never suffered the worn case problem at the clutch arm either. It's ... more »
