    who makes a dirt bike frame that requires removal of tank, seat, number plates, rad shrouds, pipe, front and lower motor mounts, and left foot peg, then motor must be swiveled up 1", just to remove the clutch cover?
    you did, dumbass.

    Not so, the ASE's were designed and manufactured in Britain by Armstrong.

    Stainless, your 200 has a radiator? You mention rad shrouds. My '86 200 is air cooled.

    rad shrouds for lack of a better term.

    air cooled. fake rad shrouds.

    ooooh - can you measure something on your linkage for me - just picked this bike up and it was kinda half-assed assembled when i got it - a spacer is missing somewhere and the linkage is wonky.

    Still the same basic frame design as the MX4 Series (and I believe the MX3 Black Widow). It is quicker and simpler to pull the engine to do anything inside the side cover than to try and do it in the frame.

    Nice thing is...with a little practice you can get it out in 15 minutes.

    I miss my old 78 MX4 250...that engine had some punch!
