I can see why this is such a puzzle. I looked this up on: http://www.cheapcycleparts.com/oempa...1/transmission

A lot of the critical parts descriptions and numbers have been removed since they are discontinued. I think that the 11 in the box might be the superseded #11 (22400-HB7-000). It really doesn't look like parts 15 to 24 to me.

That clutch is interesting, with the pressure plate on the inside of the basket. 14 is the centrifugal part that engages and disengages the clutch by pushing on 3.

It is the opposite of a Rekluse clutch.

Speaking of dunes, this is an example of some of the emerging fat-tire technology:

I agree, not quite fat enough. But maybe when you weigh less than the 350's three hundred and ten pounds, you don't have to be so fat.


johnson357,

Were the results of the clutch ball mod favorable? Are you running stock sprocket sizes or something else?

Indeed, more info on the BW80 mod please...

Also, is that one of the rear lift kit plus shock set ups - or just a new shock? I saw the fellow on ebaay was selling just new shocks, new shocks plus rear lift, fork kits, and forks with kit installed. Any experience with the fork kit?


Fat? I'm just full figured...and big boned...er, framed.

I did the stock length (actually a 1/10" shorter) aftermarket Fastace Shock off ebay. I got the non-remote resv. one because leaving oil tank on. I did the drill a hole 3/4" back from top shock mount. Have a set of PW80 forks coming( I know they are the same but have good fork seals and got them for about the same price). So going to mod the triple trees down an inch or so to raise front end. The fork kit on ebay just takes away travel in sounds like to me by putting spacers in. Google BW80 mods and read the Planetminis result, that is where I got most of my ideas. Gearing is still stock as of now. Took 2 balls out of clutch and made it have quite a bit better snap on take off. I've read where some guys have taken 4 out but for right now happy with just two.

BW80 repower with TTR90/110

I have pondered the possible creation of a true mini-thumper BW using a roller BW80 and a small four-stroke engine. Looking at the BW80 frame and the TTR90 frame, I can't see much difference in the engine mounts. Perhaps a relocation of the upper/forward point.

The big issue would be the countershaft length, wouldn't it? Any feasible approaches to that?

I have yet to see one done yet but I have thought about it too. Looks like almost any cradle type motor would work. Would be awesome with one of those Lifan 125cc motors in it.

I, of course, was referring to the portliness of the bike, not it's rider. I'm sure by now, however, you have noticed the slimming effect of riding a BW. It's the closest thing to wearing pinstripes. Jenny Craig recommends them to all of their customers.

Enough of that though. WHAT ABOUT THOSE PICTURES?!?!?!?!?

You can't just leave us hanging,,,,,,,really.

Bits and pieces

After I ordered one of the sprocket adapters online, the maker e-mailed to follow up. It turns out he is a long-time biker, recently turned BWer. When he ran into the parts issue, he got busy. He is interested in providing other key BW parts including a wheel spacer/adapter. I suggested he drop by here when he gets the chance.

Studs

Hi all (especially Mr. BW, Cliffh and any other riders of BWs on snow and ice)-

After my first few excursions out in the 350 in some real snow, I'm finding myself very interested in studding a set of tires. I can get to the Bruno Wessel site - which appears offer fine products- but can't see how to buy studs and an insertion tool on their site. Any contacts for buying these in the lower 48? Are there alternative products others have tried? Thanks in advance for your input!

PS- will be installing the ebay airbox and shift shaft on the 200 this weekend; it's supposed to get up to 20F or so for a couple of days!
