You are overdue. Major rebuild @ 90 hrs. is recommended.

Some pics. of that top end opened up please.

what was your power like, was it feeling like a 400?

just did mine at 8k and thought it could go longer felt like some power loss but it was so gradual I didn't notice too much, opened it up and wow were the rings worn. cylinder out of spec, going oval.

So I went the most logical 540 kit. love it no regrets.

I do not know if it is even in the right place!

But this is what it looks like.



The 2 flat brackets. I fit them there as it could suit some purpose to add lights switch or idiot lights, or temp/volts guage.

Thanx.

I could not believe how well this thing climbs.





Nice one Trev. They climb like beauty's. They have really good rear drive. I now I have been stuck on hills and my mates on the pumkins seem to get traction and drive off while my bike tends to spin the rear wheel a lot more.

Clever ideas for fairing/headlight mask extension

Anyone have any clever DIY ideas for a headlight fairing extension?
Dont want anything permanent, in fact something that clamps down with thumbscrews or equivalent would be ideal. Just want something that'll get me by on the days I'm covering asphalt.

I'm currently running a TT x2 but ideas are ideas and I'm sure I can get inspired by something and modify it to my application.

Yeah, it gets grip and climbs so much better than my old 200.

It doesn't look like the bike is using oil and runs great. I hope I can get this summer out of it. I am keeping an eye on it. I want a 690 but that cannot come until next year. I really like this 525 XC.
