Thanks mate. I had been doing a bit of reading over at VTF and decided a dual carb setup would be the way to go. I have heard of a few people using the VM and TM carbs.

How did you fit your TMs to the TR1?

I agree about Hageman's bike, it would be hard to build and even harder to pull off a decent copy. But I really like the idea of rear sets, high flat seat and lower bars so I may just head in that direction. Cruisers are nice but not my style.



Here she is with the old exhaust back on. This gives me the ground clearance I need but is not very nice looking. I have been thinking about using "GP" style mufflers, one on each side.

Anyway that is all just ideas in my head.
For now I need to touch up the paint on the front rim and rebleed the front brakes. Ohh and sort out the carb sync as I am fairly sure that is why it runs so bad. Just waiting on the new manifolds to arrive before I can do that.

On another note, is the an easy method for cleaning the oxidization off the engine while it is in the frame? I had thought about removing it but am wanting to ride it around whist working on it.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

you could try soda blasting with the engine in frame, no nasty grit to get in anywhere and gentle enuf not to hurt the alloy, just rinse with water when you're done

That is what I was thinking Spotty.

Looks like I might need to get a soda gun.

Before I go ripping the carbs off again can anyone suggest a different area to check. Symptoms are backfire through exhaust and rarely through carbs.

Only recently started getting worse. I think the buggered intake boots are a major culprit.

I am going to recheck the valve clearance. I have already removed 1cm from each plug wire.

I made my own sodablaster, check here for ideas

apparently the length of the uptake hose makes a difference so maybe experiment

Valve clearance is good on both cylinders.

Carbs had some junk in them so I gave them a blast out. Going to build a manometer tomorrow and try and sync them better than using my eye.

I plan to paint the valve covers while they are off. Ohh well time for work.

How did you fit your TMs to the TR1?

I run VM38s with the proper Mikuni VM38-200 inlet manifolds, for the connection to the frame/airbox i use some silicon elbows from a turbo shop. They need a bit of trimming but other than that look perfectly stock and are an easy fit.

Cheers,
Greg

I know you don't like the cruiser style scoots, man, but your bike looks pretty damned good as is.

Thanks mate. I will definitely be changing the bar area. Thinking of going with straight risers and using the Acewell I have sitting around as well as a tiny headlight cowl I have.

As for the intake boots I just ordered stock replacements so looks like the TM will be the go if I decide I need to replace the carbs.

I am currently fixing all the ground locations in hopes that the TCI was just getting funny readings and that will solve the problem.

Still waiting for the epoxy paint to dry. "Don't paint when there is high humidity or temperature exceeding 30c" looks like I can never paint if I follow that. So not the best finish but this isn't a show bike. I think the term is a "10ft bike" looks great from 10ft away haha.

I spoke to the motorcycle mech at work last night and he suggested either an air leak or ignition issue. So I have been looking over the current intake boots, looks like they are good on the inside but need new oring seals. I will get some tonight and try it again tomorrow. If that doesn't fix it I will buy new plug boots and head up the ignition circuit from there.

Alright. Just been for a small ride. Still sputtering a tiny bit but otherwise it is great. I replaced the intake manifold o rings and stuck the carbs back in and it still sputtered and backfired.

It was running rich and would spit out black smoke if you twisted the throttle. After remembering about reading about this problem on VTF I pulled the coast enriched springs from each carb and she is a happy bike now.

The quick ride was up to the hardware store where I grabbed some vinyl tube and made a manometer. I was close with the sync but recon I should be a lot closer now.

So updated to do list:

Replace left fork seal. (I botched it on install but have a spare set)
Buy/build a decent air filter.
Rebleed brakes after replacing nipples.
Ride the snot out of it!

And then comes the want list:
Install acewell gauge (has been sitting on the shelf for years)
New bar risers and bars.
Build headlight cowl (old powder/grain scoop from work, just need trimming and brackets.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.
