Hey all - hoping you can help me with this. I've got a 1974 f7 175 and I'm having issues getting it to run properly. Cleaned the carb out twice at this point, new choke plunger and carb cover gasket. I finally got the thing to idle without any choke after it warms up, but now the thing lags on the throttle. When I rev it up it stays up for awhile after I let the throttle return Is this an air intake leak? Any idea where I would look? I've heard about the crankcase seal and haven't checked it yet. Is there a way to test if that seal has failed before I pull it? Video of bike idling here https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=31&v=W5-U92O0n5k
Hey all, Boss man gave me his old project dirt bike for free and I'm looking to replace a few parts and have come to bit of a halt as I can't seem to identify the year of the bike – It's and AG 175 but i'm particularly having a bit of trouble reading the plate on the frame/identifying the right code. Would love some help with this if anyone knows what they're looking at. Included is the photos of the plate and numbers on the bike itself. Cheers from New Zealand, Ethan
I tried to walk away from this old girl but fate would not have it. I threw out my top comfortable offer which was well shy of the asking price and rambled off why this bike was "rough" and gonna take some time and $ to get what it needs. The owner didn't even counter offer, or try and think of a way to make it work. I came up to my " I probably shouldn't do this" top offer as a last stab, still a good bit low of the asking price. I was completely comfortable with walking and half hoping he didn't take the offer cuz i wasn't sure i even wanted the bike for that much. He squirmed for a bit and didn't seem like he could do it then out of his mouth came the magic words.... "Hey, I have another bike in the shed, how bout both for my asking price?" I did what any fan of motorcycles would do, i said, "lets go check it out" The 2nd bike was a tricked out pit bike 155cc, neglected a bit mechanically and cosmetically but all in all in decent shape and not a bad machine I have no real interest in a pit bike but figured, crap, i can clean that up and sell it for a few $$$ no problem and let that pay for the stuff the old IT needs. So instead of coming home with 1 bike that needs work, i came home with 2 Either way, check out this gem. Not the right tank, seat needs cover but all in all foam is ok, needs new fenders, the one number plate will clean up, other is cracked, rear rim is missing a few spokes, they might be seized up so might need a whole wheel, front wheel is decent enough, gonna need new rubber all around, brake pads, and a few rear brake mech parts just to name some of the obvious. The good... well it starts and runs and shifts through the gears 👍 Some engine noise, not sure if an issue or common on these old bikes. Time will tell. Pit bike in second pic.
Does anybody know the float depth on an 82 pe 175 with a VM34 Mikuni fitted. I tripped a post that said 27mm, but not sure if that’s too high, as I assume the measurements taken from the base ( where the gasket sits) to the top of the float. Thanks in advance cheers ?
