    Hello chaps, My TLS engine had started to wrap its tits in when you give it a handful of throttle. It only seems to do it when its warmed up, but can start after 10 minutes, or over an hour - there's no real pattern. As you open the throttle and the engine passes about 3000rpm, it's as if the...

    I generally replace as many of the non critical bolts and screws with Stainless Steel Socket Allen Head Bolts and am looking at doing the same with all the engine cover bolts (Both Sides). Are there any issues with doing this? Also, are there fasteners that look a little better and are still...

    Ok, so im stumped. :confused As the rpms go up (right at about 2,600) the engine lets out a squeek sound. I can hear it clearly when sitting on it. Not super loud, and it only last for a fraction of a second, it almost sounds like a squeek suspension or something. But its always associated...

    I experienced some wierd loud noise, when i crank to start the engine. It only happens when the engine is cold. The sound is something like a growling cat ... something like that. Does anybody know what is wrong??? Is it because of some spoilt oil filter or something? Kindda scary...but...

    Sadly, I have to sacrifice the heart of my project and put everything on hold. My school's financial department just informed me that I owe $800.00 more than my loans will cover--my loss is your gain. :banghead This is a complete engine out of a running bike. Similar engines with all wiring...

    Guys, i know that this should probably be going in the For Sale section, but given the size of the item i thought that here is probably better. As the title suggests i have a spare engine that i used whilst rebuilding the gearbox from my original engine. I bought it on ebay for £400 from a...

    Done 5 seasons and think it's succomed to the spun crank bearing..... Racing it today at Scarborough it gradually started getting slower as the day went on, didn't really notice it at first but same braking points started to result in arriving short to the corners, 2nd to last run and my times...

    I know someone has built one, just a wooden crate to hold the engine when it isn't in the bike, just to keep it from tipping over and what not. I want to build one to put a parts engine in when i pull it, but can't find the dimensions. If anyone knows, or can point me to the thread, i would...

    Hi everybody. i have a cagiva navigator (same as gran canyon but with a 95hp tl-s engine). The engine is the same as tl-s (with 6 spring clutch) apart from the camshafts (maybe are the same as french tls with 100hp), the much smaller airbox and the different exhausts...

    I'm changing my blown TLS motor out and replacing it with a TLR motor and I have a question. What do I do about the rear cyclinder cover on the TLR motor? It looks like it has a hose fitting on the top of the cylinder cover, but the TLS does not have this fitting. Any ideas? Do I just swap the...

    as the title says... the bike starts fine and idles great, until the temp hits about 120-133. Then all hell breaks loose. Motor starts coughing, idle drops, idle goes normal, idle drops, and then it dies. I'm thinking a good sync and TPS adjustment may do the trick, any one else have any...

    So i'm trying to pull my rear tire off and take it to a shop. I have all the gear in my garage to pull engines from cars and such but unfortunately nothing for my bike. Has anyone ever done it or should I just bite the bullet and get a stand? They aren't that expensive but I'd like to save at...
