They were the first company to develop the two-stroke engine for vehicles and were the leader in two-stroke development worldwide. I never did get around to replacing either the shocks or swinging arm bearings the clock now reads 23000 miles , preferring to adapt my riding to its intrigues than spend my hard earnt dosh on non-essential items. The championship was lost through one of the biggest spy scandals in motorcycle history. Out of my next pay packet I bought a new Avon tyre, clutch cable and front pads. These springs were shorter so I had to machine up some spacers to make up the difference and provide suitable preload. Next step is probably set the points gap and advance off the piston using a Dial guage.

I still find it quite amazing that the engine lasted a 300 mile trip in such a state. With a rack for the camping gear, and a tubby pillion, going touring around Scotland was pushing the experience to the limits. Top speed was a mere 65mph and fuel was just 45mpg. About two weeks later she complained that the kickstart was slipping. On November 5, 2012, the insolvency proceedings became irrevocable by a court decision. Matty- There were many different models of 2T bikes made in Poland alone during the communist times. Both of these are retuned, with less outright horsepower than the 'S', but with more torque.

The range includes a naked unfaired version and a full tourer with luggage, higher handlebars, and lower footpegs for comfort. The defection to the West of grand prix rider , complete with his theft of a set of secrets, started the end of the glory years of Kaadens bikes. They would probably have lasted another 15000 miles but a cheap set of Avons persuaded me to do the decent thing. Strangely, I always get a wave from other bikers, even those on Gold Wings. The Yamaha-based engine can be reliably tuned to 150 percent of its original performance. One mini-wheelie later, I was off.

Nevertheless, he convinces Junker to have Motorenwerke Zschopau GmbH present all their products on the world's biggest motorcycle show, Intermot in Cologne starting on October 2. However, came to the rescue and fitted a new ignition system for around 80 quid. Both brakes on as hard as they would go. After a non-eventful test ride, all I noticed was the rev counter stuck on zero. Both tyres sliding away and I thought I was going to die.

The frame is a tube-steel backbone with the engine as a stressed bottom member. A lot less painful was keeping the bike clean. The pillion found the pegs on the swinging arm a bit disconcerting and wasn't willing to lean over with the bike. Wonderful - the bike had only been in my hands for five minutes and already there were the signs of one of those horrible elusive faults looming on the horizon. This engine was used in four models, all of which share a common frame. A 300 cc version was also marketed. The Mantizz series has two displacement options — 125 cc and 110 cc.

The bike had stood idle for a couple of years before I bought it and so the crank seals had perished. In 1962, with his stolen knowledge that he brought to Suzuki he won the first world title for the Japanese manufacturer. All four bikes feature a six-speed transmission and dual disc brakes. He realised something was wrong when he only had a couple of gears, but the gearbox had seized before he could do anything about it.

However, a order was issued in the early 1990s by , who owned the rights to that name, and MuZ subsequently renamed the motorcycle the Silverstar, and the sidecar-equipped version the Silverstar Gespann. The left-hand side kickstart was the first item of quaintness noticed. I admit it may be overkill but I use fully synthetic 2T oil in mine - it does run a lot smoother and bearing in mind it has to run flat out much of the time I see it as an insurance policy for the motor. It gave me a shagged generator. The Perintis was succeeded by the , launched in 2004.

I guess the bike had done about 40 000k at that stage. I take off the side cover and brush on grease cheaper than sprays. I've done afew changes which has made the bike a real pleasure to ride. Turning the collar could then only be achieved by use of a massive pair of stilsons. Range was around 150 miles which matched the comfort of the seat.
