Question - if the CR barrel is made to fit without tooooo much trouble on the rear pot, is there a possibility of connecting the RC valve mechanism to work at the same time as the ATACs ?


Do they use a single electical 12v solenoid pulse or is it a progressive system ?

Hi Red In case you have trouble in having a 4 in one cable made up, I would opt for looking at one of the old Kawasaki triples for spares as from what I recall, they had exactly the same setup for throttle and pump movement. Interested indeed at the mod for the CR125 as the top cylinder on mine appe...

Ah, but I have seen the other thread on the CR125 conversion. If parts really are that scarce, I may have a go with the high power barrel and mods.

I also have a KH500 engine I could throw in the frame if I really wanted to save money

Well I couldnt sleep and so , armed with yet another pair of gloves and some tools, I started with No 2, the four crank bolts came off and up came the barrel to about 1/2 inch and no more. Took out the front barrels without difficulty and so the seizure is definitely only one. The carbonising of the...

Well the engines out (allows me to clean the framework where the suspension and swingarm go - I believe the frame is actually a work of art, and the Japanese welder should have an award).Additionally the carb gave off a rally bad smell so its best to play safe and clean them out as well. Exhaust no ...

Don't drop the engine on the oil pump and you should be ok. And of course tne manual says 'remove cylinders 1 and 3 before cleaning/ taking out the oil pump', so removal before engine drop may be out. This is getting interesting, Im going to have a go at the exhausts today and if that fails then th...

As for removal of the engine from the frame , again the lack of spares is the sticking point - whats the availability of engine rubbers, or any engine bolts should anything go pear shaped ?

Hi BorgNSR Tried option 1 most of today, so thats out, I agree the higher the gear the better chance of shifting something due to the lower gearing of movement to force pn the block. Option 2 - rather than take the RHS off, what prevents me from using the alternator side and and the locknut on the f...

Well the bike was accurately described, no real damage to the frame or panels, but the standing has corroded all the moving parts, brakes are especially bad , but they all look identical to the VF750/1000 and I have spares galore. The engine is another matter however. Tried WD40, 3 in 1 and a lot of...
