Vespa Smallframe, 3D Printed Silent Block pullers.

I needed to make some pullers as to remove the old silent blocks on my V50 crankcases but the Myford lathe is dismantled at the moment. The 3d printer came to the rescue and to my surprise the PETG pullers can withstand the forces really well.  Free download of the STL files in the below link.  Vespa Smallframe Silent Block Pullers @printables.com Have fun.  Nick

Tzr250 F-III YEC Racing KIT Part, YPVS Control Unit

I just finished the repair of an ultra rare YPVS control unit, that belongs to Dan(UK).  I have repaired quite a few TZ250 ypvs units and also Rz500 YEC prototype units but I had never seen this one. It is an official F3 Kit part for the Tzr250 1KT - 2MA bike. Of course, it does feature it' s own unique racing exhaust valve timings, as to accompany the rest of the kit parts.  You can find the Tzr250 KIT manual, in the below link that is also an excellent resource for all Yamaha 2T street bikes :  pure2strokespirit.net
