YPVS gremlins are not always Digital...

Small repair on the stopper of a YZ200 exhaust valve assy. It seems like an AC tig welder can be helpful sometimes...

Big Thanks to Retro & Classic Bike Magazine

Safety LockWire, How To

Some notes on safety lock wiring.  Twist the safety wire for a couple turns manually and preferably by using two pliers so that the twist is tight.   Use a safety wire plier and engage the locking mechanism to hold the wire in place.  Pull the lever of the lockwire plier so it twists the safety wire.  Cut he wire 3-5mm away from the knot and make a bend on it so that it will be easy to...  press it up and hide the sharp edge against the grip. Done!

2strokes, going for a walk... Vol.IV

Smoking the streets of Athens once again... Eleven two strokes blipping the throttle on each traffic light is a very rare view.
