  1. Premature

    Ok, so the engine ran, but it wasn't right.

    Another few evenings and this morning have it all sorted now.

    If runs, on both cylinders, with no petrol leaks.
    Coolant leak fixed.
    Exhaust valve repaired.

    I'd forgotten how good two stroke smells.

    I have to fix the top yoke before I can take it for a ride - then the engine comes out while the wheels go off to be powder coated.
  2. Thanks

  3. Damn patrol

    LHS Carb stripped again.

    Innards left in an ultrasonic cleaner until they were shiny as pins.

    Carb rebuilt, petrol tank on.

    Still only runs on 1.

    The hunt for new carbs / kit starts on ebay.

    really, it starts.

    The new spark plugs, and still no better.

    So tank off, carbs off, strip and clean.

    After putting the take back on and taking it off far too many times, I gave up.

    Next job is to strip the carbs and rebuild them with new ...
  5. Here goes nothing

    I'm not a blogger.

    In fact if I was to say what I really am, I would say lazy.

    However, with that in mind and inspired by some recent posts by Zunspec, I have decided to pull my finger out and do something about the RGV250 that has been sat in the garage for far too long doing nothing. Well, nothing except taking up space.

    This may be a another project that never gets finished, but at least if it's in bits it won't take up so much room.

    So Day ...
