Did any of you guys upgrade the carb? I swapped-in a CRF100 carb and my TLR runs so much better. The carb and 10/50 sprockets made a huge difference.

No carb swap just yet. I have a 28mm carb that I wanted to try (brand new in a box, no idea where it came from), and a carb off of a CRF150R that I want to experiment with also. 9/50 sprockets grace OJ, and lowering the footpegs helped tremendously.

A very strict budget ensured that it would never be a 'buy a new bit and bolt it on' project, everything had to be renovated and re-used. That's cool, sanding, painting, polishing and doing every bit myself was way more satisfying than just throwing money at it. And in the process I learnt how to spraypaint, how to polish aluminium, how to lace a wheel, even how to buy stuff from the other side of the planet... (Google is your friend)
The only bits I had to buy because they were either missing or irrepairable were, mudguards, handgrips, front spokes, brake shoes, chain, a wee bit of chrome and of course, paint. Came in well under $800AU.

I got a bit carried away with the work and forgot to take many progress shots so here are some 'before and after' shots.

I still need to get tyres, I think these might be the originals!, and the seat needs repair, upholstery next?

Please enjoy and I would appreciate any and all comments you may have.

Cheers,
Pete.

* A note on the paint scheme. I painted it like this 'cos I like it, I can always paint it original next time I restore it... in another 20 years.









I have a strong urge to build a cafe racer now.....
Very nice redo this is one reason I love this hobby so much to take a machine that is old, tattered, and worn and create a usable, functional and nice looking ride. BRAVO to us!!!

carb swap

I'm interested in changing my carb also. I've heard of using the xr 100. and the crf 100. Any advantage to either?

I thought the TLR200 footpegs were too high when I first got it - they feel they are above the CG,compared to other bikes which feel like they are under the CG.The bike feels very tippy,and responds too much to weight inputs....but now I'm used to it and don't want to change.

Gearing is an issue - with 2 stroke twinshock bikes 2nd gear is used for nearly everything,3rd only for long hills,and first for some real knarly stuff.The TLR200 hasn't got the grunt to use 2nd even on small climbs,you just have to use 1st and rev the tits off it.The saving grace is that it has more traction than a 2 stroke under power,so you can use full throttle on hills.A 2 stroke of course uses the flywheels,and will climb with a shut throttle.

The TLR250 is much better,with only 5 speeds and better gear ratios you can use 2nd,and it has the grunt to pull it too.But TLR250 riders I've talked to say they just use 1st gear too.Here are a couple of TLR250's - I rode the one nearest the camera,the one behind is a works bike.

Practically the same bike with an alloy tank/seat unit.And a TLR250 is almost the same as a TLR200....but completely different to ride.A Reflex is almost the same as a TLR200 too....but was down graded to a trail bike.

I think they are the same carb. I just happened to win a CRF 100 carb on eBay so that is what I went with.

That does not mean that it is in good shape, however.

Mine was built out of 3 piles of junk. I still have 2 piles left over. What do you need?
Parts left over you say? Sending PM... Might need some of yer junk :b

TLR 250 has 6 gears as does the 200. The 200 with a few simple mods is a far more effective bike than the 250, and Adrian Lewis I think will be riding a modified 200 in this years US national twin-shock championship series. Carb that seems to work very well on the 200 is listed on Ebay here: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MIKUNI-VM2...item43ad928f5a but do seem to be available most places in the world.
