Nice!

Well done Cavaleru!
I've been considering the same with fabricating up pieces for mine as there are no longer any ready made guards or center stands here in the US.

Need a TDM!!!

I have one waiting for me in France for some vacations:



But I'd love to have one in the US!!! So it is a long shot but I'd love to trade my XS2 (1972) with tons of work done on it for a nice TDM!!!



So if your are tired of "adventuring" and want to join the vintage crowd (old cool here!), PM me for details!!!

Will you keep us posted about how you get on with the RT valves, AdvRich? Something I've thought about from time to time.

Will do DS. I've got a couple of bikes in the que to sort before I get to the TDM... possible mid next month.
What year is your TDM?

Its not too out of line at roughly 161psi. Could be a bit of carbon build up in the chambers and on the pistons is all. I think its fair to say, TDM's would be a bit more prone to carbon build up given the rich running condition they can operate in for some time with undiagnosed worn emulsion tubes/needles and choke plungers.

When was the last valve adjust done?

It isn't yet! I'm looking to buy a MkI around May, and a front end spring and valve job () is something I have been wondering about.

Before I put this stuff on Ebay anybody need any TDM engine parts? I bought a 92 motor with a bad rod a long time ago and used some parts from the motor. I took it a part and have had piles of parts for over 10 years. If anyone needs anything drop me a PM and it will be cheap. I just want it gone.
