Hair of the DOG!
Go see Don at Cascade Motorsports. He has lots of Montesa 314 parts....He's close to you. http://cascade-motorsports.com/
S3 has piston and rings. https://shop-s3.com/gb/piston-/436-piston-s3-racing-for-montesa-hrc-4rt.html
Johnny, what fuel are you running? the 315 will knock on low octane fuel.
Totally blown fork seals, blown shock, oil drenched front brake pads, noisy crank bearings...... 2nd place in Amateur today. Not bad for a fat sandbagger on an old bike.
It's a Honda. You can't kill them.
True, but when they get cranky they may try and kill you....
How to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, @Brewtus style. The 'ol '14 had pumped out the very last dregs of fork and shock fluid on Saturday's NMTA Haystack event. Nothing but spring left in either end Sunday morning. "No problem" my ego said. "Let's do this!!"
Evidently that's when the fuel needle had decided it had had enough also. This thing vibrates horribly (especially on decel) mostly due to it's very unhappy crank bearings. 5 sections in (on a short loop) the fuel smell was getting worse, and that's when I noticed it dribbling out of the skidplate. No leakies idling, little dribbles on rev-up, LOTS of leakies on the buzzing decel. Dammit. Back to camp, bang on the carb, no change whatsoever. Fine standing still, OK idling, dribbles everywhere else with the vibes up.
Thought about "mining for carburetor" in camp, wasn't convinced I could 1) Do the job in the time I had left, and 2) could solve the problem. What the hell, I was riding for fun anyway, and this old beast owes me nothing. It's largely ignored for the better part of a year every year, and I haven't seen the inside of that carb in over 8 years. I let the regular Amateurs battle it out that day, and had beverages in camp before going out to score that afternoon. Shown here with Miss Bitters' Fantic while scoring (ridden out there VERY slowly as to not "spark strike" the skidplate) -
More to come. Sometime....
Was in a Honda dealer today. I spy a Montesa 300RR. I notice the spokes on the rear wheel, and think I’m seeing something new. Then I see the rear wheels on the Montesa’s in this thread, and discover the joke’s on me! Anyway, here’s a pic...
Crap, now I gotta do a better pic!
1992 311 Montesa for the spokes, 1987 Beta for the rim and we started using hydraulic clutches in like 1990-91. And 1990 for the full aluminum frame.
