    No parts as yet... although some contact with Terry last week, he explained that he has been full time firefighting, worst wildfires in decades on the west coast so he has been away for weeks on end. I know there are others waiting for parts, engine builds etc from Terry. I wish him well in getting back on top of things, once he is back in his shop.

    Thanks Chuck and MX4god for your comments. I have just spoken with Terry. The porting is being done today and he has all other parts in hand, ready to dispatch. Terry explained the reasons for the delays and all is good! I will post a picture of the parts when they arrive
  3. The bike is a 1983 XR200R I have had the forks done by Bruce’s Suspension- Damper rod mods and heavier springs and now want to sort out the too soft rear suspension. A respected suspension guy here in the UK says he can have a spring made to suit my weight. He will also overhaul the shock, anodize and plate the parts so it looks like new. The price is very reasonable and I’m thinking that is probably all it needs, considering my very average riding abilities. So, my question is, is there anything wrong with the design of the original Showa shock that means I would be better off buying a new Hagon or similar? Also, I am a bit of an originality nut… so re-working the old shock is appealing.

    Update…. Terry has messaged to say he has done some porting work on the head that I sent him and that he is still involved with the fire crew work. I try daily to contact him by phone, hopefully my efforts will be successful at some point… Terry, if you happen to read this…. Can you please answer your phone!!!

    Thanks for the info adnohoy and chadzu. I’m locked in with Powroll, having handed over my money already. I will keep Engines Only in mind as a backup plan.

    From my recent experience, I wouldn’t hold out much hope of making contact with Terry Miller - Teamrude - Powroll I paid Terry a large wedge of money back in Sept 17 for a stroker crank, parts and head work to build a 218 motor. Terry said a turn-around of 2 months was achievable and sounded really switched on about the whole deal. 10 months later I still have nothing to show for it. There has been the occasional message from him over the months but now he doesn't respond at all! I’m down $700 + the mint XR200R head and camshaft that I sent him. I’m trying to stay positive that he will get sorted out and do the right thing in the end!
