  1. How did they make it work? The increase in volume of the oil system must also require more pressure to keep the upper end properly oiled. Is there a different oil pump or setup of the oil pump required. How did they pump the flow from the pressure side of the oil pump. Is the return directly to the oil sump? Here is the only picture I have found showing the right side of a RTL250. One hears of 200 series big bores having oil coolers, mainly across the pond, in GB or Europe. I owned a '69 HD Shortster that had external oil lines run to both heads, it was not really successful. I finally went back to a stock setup.
  2. I got a oem big fin cylinder( honda 200) from Colin Lee (ebay) from England came with oem piston rings and gaskets about $395 USD shipped
  3. Thank you SOANZ, PBI has already shipped
  4. Chadzu, PBI They have already shipped the 428 60 T, Thanks for the link.
  5. Thanks Chuck, I made up a pig-tail with the condenser which was then bolted to the original battery hook up and all of the battery box was removed. I removed the snorkel insert from the airbox and used the back section to hold the wiring w/condenser. Works great, the lights and horn work function like stock. I want to keep this bike street legal to ride from trail head to trail head. I thank you for your help with finding a condenser and your input which got that ungainly battery box off the back of the bike and still allowed me to have front and rear stock running lights/horn. You might be interested in one of my current Honda projects. I am trying to fit a 1984 ATC 200 x motor into a 1974 TL125 K1. I am trying to work through several issues, such as, proper cooling to the head and barrel, fitting a wide ATC motor into the frame and deciding if 428 chain (due to the stock 60 T rear sprocket) is enough to handle the ATC200X engine's output. Do you have any experience with external oil lines and a small oil cooler IE RTL250? I am hope full not to go to this extreme, but the ATC200 did have cowlings on the gas tank to direct air down over the heads. Thanks a million for all your insight and providing me with parts help, Tim
  6. Does anybody know where you can buy new 60 tooth rear sprocket in 428 for a box stock '74 TL125? Hopefully a supplier in the USA, as shipping and currency conversion make parts from England expensive. In the same vein, Does anybody know if I can get a 60 tooth rear sprocket in 520 chain to fit the TL125 rear wheel? I have a '84 ATC200X motor that I might try to put in a rolling TL125 basket case case I've got.
  7. Does anybody know where to buy a TL125 rear sprocket with a 60 tooth count /428 chain? Hopefully in the USA. Shipping cost and currency conversion make purchasing from England expensive. Does anybody know if there is a 520 chain version of the 60 tooth,TL125 rear sprocket? I suspect it would have to be a custom. Your input appreciated. Why 520? I'm thinking of putting a 84 ATC200X motor in a TL125 frame, that currently is a rolling basket case. I am not sure that 428 chain will be a good idea for this type of conversion.
  8. Chuck, I'd like to see how you use the capacitor to replace the battery.I am interested in where the capicator is placed on your frame. I am thinking of putting it in the air filter box. Using a short pig-tail to connect the Capacitor to the original harness. Hiding the excess harness/fuse holder, fabricated pigtail connector/capacitor in the top of the air-box I am hesitant to cut the battery leads as I might put this bike back stock if I ever decide to sell it. Thanks a million, Tim
  9. Nobade, It will not run after warmed up on or off choke, known good fuel. It will only start when stone cold on choke. It will only run when cold and on choke. Responds to throttle until warmed up then dies and will not run anymore, On or off choke.... Carb is disassembled and now is in warm cleaning vat overnight. I will install new floats and carb kit tomorrow.
  10. I do have the '86 TLR200 Honda service manual # 61-kj200 which I have studied.
  11. Cam chain jumped a tooth or two? Symptoms: 1.) WILL CRANK ON CHOKE will run on choke until warmed up in any/all throttle positions. 2.) WILL NOT CRANK OFF CHOKE WHEN WARMED UP. Will not crank with choke when warmed up. 3.) WILL NOT STAY AT TDC MARK ON FLY WHEEL OR "O" MARK ON CAM. Wants to roll back to "F" mark on flywheel. Spark plug in or out. 4.) Can not verify that the intake valve is fully closed because motor is still in frame and wiring is in place. Dumped fuel, tried with known good fuel, non ethanol 93, same-same. Where do I go from here?
  12. The top engine mount is the same width @ 42mm The left side case has the same number 446 stamped on it. The length of the counter shaft for the chain sprocket measures the same from the left side case to the end of the shaft. The chain sproket mount is different the TLR200 has two bolts the ATC 200X has a circllip retainer
  13. Thanks Chuck, I will measure carefully! Question: The emission controls on the atc200X are totally different, is all this plumping necessary? Can I run a hose from the crank case up under the frame about even with the top of the airbox and use a vented plug? The airbox might have to go with an addition to the rear fender to make up the difference when the airbox is removed.
  14. Chuck, Thanks. I have a 1984 ATC 200X 5 speed (forward kick start) complete running engine with wiring harness, carb, header pipe. What I would like to try first, please comment, is fit the '84 ATC200x motor to a '86 TLR200 reflex frame and test ride it in club twin-shock trials events. I am keeping one Reflex box stock and building the other TLR to ride at CVOTC events. PS; Thanks for the help with the battery eliminator.
  15. Thanks for sharing Chuck, so you wire in the capacitor in place of the battery and dumped the battery box? No blown fuses? I appreciate you taking the time to help me out.
