Re: 175TS Fork Strip Question

Here's some pics of the internals of my 30mm forks. The O-rings is the one at the end of the damper rod.

Re: 175TS in UK

I finally have up and fitted a complete Electrex World ignition kit and it solved all the electrical gremlins that I'd been chasing around over the last year, replacing component by component. It was straightforward to fit, with good, clear instructions and not only do I now have a really strong, co...

Re: 175TS Fork Strip Question

Thanks for that info Ian, it does seem that I've probably got the correct early forks. The bike was dated as a 1959 model by Mick Walker and Nigel Lacey's list the 30mm fork seals on his website as fitment for early 125/175 models. Incidentally, some measuring and searching on eBay showed up suitabl...

Re: 175TS Fork Strip Question

Thanks for the heads up about refitting Ian, I'll look into a similar fitting! You don't happen to recall what size the thread was by any chance? If not I'll measure it up tonight if I get a chance. I really hope that I don't have to take the steering stem out a the moment, as all the electrics and ...

Re: 175TS Fork Strip Question

Craig, Great advice, I think you could be right about the paint. It was done by the previous owners own paint shop (quite well as it happens), but has been put on with a bit too much high-build primer for my liking and whoever did it did not take the time to mask off things like screen threads in a ...

Re: 175TS Fork Strip Question

Hi Buster, Many thanks for that advice it's really helpful. I had thought of doing as you suggested with the top nuts, but wasn't sure if I would damage the threads in doing so as they are quite fine. However, you've given me more confidence and I'll have a go tonight! With regards to bouncing the f...

175TS Fork Strip Question

Hi Guys, I've searched through all the threads that I can find on stripping the 31.5mm fork, read the overly-complicated descriptions in the Workshop Manual (which is just plain confusing), as well as the magazine reproduction in the Tech section (can't make out anything in the photographs), but I s...

Re: Spark Plug Length on 350

Hi Nigel, I did query if the 'glue' was a type of Loctite and also regarding the electrical and heat conductivity, but was assured that it was not and actually contained metal particles and should be more than sufficient combined with their slightly wider 'top hat' flange to bite more firmly into th...

Re: Spark Plug Length on 350

Regarding the loose spark plug insert, I too had this issue on my 175 TS recently, as Nigel says, it seemed impossible to get it to stay in place for any length of time with Loctite and he was kind enough to suggest the same solution. The insert was the same as yours, in that it shielded the plug by...

Re: Regulator/rectifier 250 strada

You could always give Electrex World a try if you want a new RR. I'm in the process of fitting one of their complete bolt-on ignition system for my 175 TS narrow case, which includes a switchable 6v/12v rectifier. I've bought ignition pick ups for one of my belt drive Dukes from them in the past and...
