If others want to share their stories about having Trials fun on an old user/abuser/scrapper refugee, then that is neat also. I am still having fun with my bike, even if its in semi-retirement (abandoned on the back porch). Insulting me or my bike is not making you any friends here, pard.
If you feel that posting up advice which isnt accurate, is likely to be of help to anyone following this thread thats up to you entirely.

Its possible to make the TLR an awful lot better without spending much money, but you seem unable to take that on board, and seem to take pleasure in suggesting that things like Chinese pitbike CDI units, and cheap Taiwanese carbs dont work, even though these are things you have never tried yourself.

Okay once again, how 'bout pics of your bike? With you in competition on it? Results? Build pics? How 'bout a part number for this magical Chinese CDI unit you have touted, along with a wiring schematic that you have been asked about several times, yet never manage to provide? Pics, part number, and a tuning guide for this Taiwanese carb? You seem to have a hard-on for me, so it's time for you to step up and prove you are something other than a keyboard commando. I ride and compete on mine. What the hell do you do with yours, if it even exists?


Apologies, Utah Guido. Keep posting pics of your progress. As stated earlier, you are welcome to ride and compete with us anytime. That goes for you too, Twinshocker. Any. Time.

I would guess you should be able to get both items from Bob at B&J. For trials use, its worth looking at 9-44 but you may need to go larger on the rear, as you will be losing a fair amount of power if you are at 7000ft. Bob might also be able to help with a KN filter element to replace your stock flame trap/foam arrangement, which will be less restrictive and mean a little more power.
So you're saying my nut is a mangled mess? Boy!

Frankly I can't even see that there is a nut on there. Maybe I'll send this picture to B&J and see what he says. In the meantime I've got to replace the front tire and fit a rim lock to the rear. I'm taking it with me down south next week for some farting around. I'll screw with that nut when I get back.

It's not a nut. It is a clip that is saftey wired on since the clip no longer fits correctly.

Yep...Circlip. Just remove the wire and snap it off there with a little screw driver.

There is no nut fitted to TLR output shafts............you have what looks like a mangled up old circlip of some sort on yours, and should be able to prise it off with a screwdriver very easily.

The Chinese CDI units need wiring alterations to fit, which are pretty simple given the pins on 5 pin units are all wired the same. Taiwanese carbs dont need any jetting changes at all, and are a straight bolt on replacement for the OE Keihin.

However I am not sure many grasp the fact that there are no wiring diagrams or instructions for carrying out alterations on old TS bikes, and that without commonsense and a little basic mechanical knowledge its probably best to leave your old TS bike stock.

No jetting changes at all, and all 5 pin Chinese CDIs will go right on, eh? That response proves without a shadow of a doubt that you in fact, don't know shit.

Still haven't seen pics of you building a bike, modifying a bike, competing on your bike, posted results, or anything else pard. There's plenty of me and others modifying and competing on Reflex's, but none of you it seems. Just to make this clear - I'm calling you out.

Maybe Honda, Gas Gas and all the rest should buy these incredible carbs. I have yet had a bike that came jetted properly, let alone some junk off flea bay!!

From what I've seen so far, the only "Dark Side" this guy is on is in the shadow of his keyboard.

I bought one of those Chinese CDI units for about eleven buck, 'cause may be i'm a sucker. But it's a cheap experiment. Haven't installed it yet though. Idid put rim locks on the tires, with a half worn Pirelli MT43 on the back and a new cheap Shinko on the front. Oh, and a number plate.




The biggest improvement that needs to be made is in my ability to ride it, like turning it where I want it to go. Tricky.

Practice never hurts. Much. Good luck, keep us posted!
