Have you heard them things rev once you done done a few mods ? risten

Correction two guys selling posties with 140cc lifan engines

Would one of these 160cc "race engines" fit in the postie ? $665.

Mezo.
Apparently they do, but then you have an unreliable Chinese piece of crap instead of a rock sold piece of crap that will keep going no matter what you throw at it, and thats what I thought was so attractive about them.

Two more extreme adventure posties are about to launch into action after a couple of weekends of fiddle in Sydney...



One is a 2005 with 32,000kms sourced via Gumtree for $800 unregistered but in good nick from an owner who bought it at Pickles Auctions, got it serviced and then got distracted until the wife got sick of it.

The other is a 2004 that's been resprayed and restored by a third party.

Tanks were picked up at Liverpool Bike Wreckers for $30 a pop... one an old XR250, the other a random Yamaha number. Much more appropriate than the $195 quoted elsewhere for similar product!

Immediate plans are to fit some panniers, a prototype of which can be seen being used as a seat below, and switch to some higher output lighting. Keep everything else stock and go have some fun!



Oh and from our couple of months of prices research some of the best value CT110 buying is on eBay.com.au or other local classifieds... You really shouldn't be paying more than $900 for a clean unregistered example with 30,000km's on the clock.

What type oil??

Hi everyone,

first of all a question to 110punk. Can you tell me more about the pannier you knocked up?
And than, what type oil do you have to tip into the 110?
My mate just got his beast, signed up on ADV and am sure will be with you fellas shortly.
I just want to give him a hand with a few things and one is the oil change.
Don't want to dump anything in there.
Cheers all, Andreenduro

The Manual recommends 10W-30, which should be fine in tassie.

The Pannier was knocked out by my co-conspirator.

He took a 20L water jerry, sliced the top off and then cut the remaining bucket in half. Splice in a little extra width with some 2mm sheet and some pop rivets. He's also included some internal mdf sheets to add strength. The lid will either be pressed from more 2mm sheet or made up in vinyl tonneau material.

Pannier brackets will be from Bunnings and we'll just wingnut and wire lock the suckers on for relatively easy removal from the rear tray.

I'm just hunting about for an '86-91 XR250 fuel tank cap to complete the current mods so I can fuel up the big can on the front.... at 30-50km per Litre the extra 9L should kick the range out a little.

I am 110Punk's co-conspirator.

My tank (the white one seen in his first picture) is from an '82 YZ250J. Mounting was fairly straightforward with some 90-degree angle brackets from Bunnings bolting the tank onto where the engine guard meets the frame. The back is held in place with a custom bracket easily bent out of some 3mm aluminum extrusion and attaching to the front of the seat hinge.

All the fuel lines were able to be rerun using the existing lines - so no need to buy extra.

Due to the location of the tanks the keyswitches were moved to the 'standard' location of under the speedo - as most people before us have done.

The next test is to see who's tank (the XR or the YZ) has provided the most extra range! I feel a little healthy wager coming on...

We ran the shitters on 20-50 Diesel-engine oil (some BP plonk we got in Bamaga).
No probs whatsoever.
Any reasonable non-synth oil is fine.
Go posh...Motul 1000

Has any one changed their fork oil? In the manual it says drain the old stuff, fill from the top with ATF(automatic transmission fluid). Do you just fill it to the top, or is there a specific amount?

I was waiting until Philth and the others got back to ask this but what the hell...

After changing my second gear (half arse rebuild) and getting the postie back together, it makes a loud grinding noise when changing from second to third.

I found a screw and lock nut on the clutch cover that I adjusted until it stopped grinding but then the kick starter wouldn't engage....

So where did I stuff up?

Just took our posties for a brass monkey weekend overnighter to lithgow... cold but great fun...



http://ct110.wordpress.com/

Few mods to adjust, some aesthetics to attend to, and an engine / gearbox overhaul on the cards but the Posties killed it for the weekend, and the touring tanks were a boon for range!

Question is, where to next?

the go with the clutch adjustment is to loosen the locknut, turn the screw anticlockwise 'til it gets firm. then clockwise 1/4 turn. lock the lock nut. all should be well.
