Well, I replaced the main jets on both carbs.
And gave them a blow through in case more shit had managed
To get stuck in the passages.
No one likes a blocked back passage.

Everything was clear so I gave it a kick over https://youtu.be/eEF9mOcUoM0

I love how this thing starts first kick.

Can't/won't take it for a test ride, as it's currently snowing here in Scotland.
Tell ya it was a manic ride to work on the bandit this morning.
More side ways action than I prefer on 2 wheels. One of these days I'll buy a car/ute for the winter.
Not today though Wink

right,

i took the seat to be recovered, so that'll be away a week or 2,

also spoke to the vintage japanese motorcycle club (vjmc) about dating the bike for the dvla (vtnz in nz, dmv in the states)

so that got done pretty painlessly
http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g257/hmmmnz/bridgestone%20200/vjmc%20letter%20Large_zpstsocwcmx.jpg

still waiting for the dvla to send out the paperwork for me to fill in and send back (frankly astounded you cant just download the paperwork, british bureaucracy at its best, of course they've also shut down all their offices so you cant just pick it up either)


so while i was waiting, i thought id work on the mrs suzuki B120 of 72 vintage. (not that she has ever ridden it, but she swears she's doing her licence this year.... Rolling Eyes )

it hadnt been started in a couple of years and last time i rode it, the fuel would piss out the float bowl, or alternatively run out of fuel because the bowl wasnt full enough.

and since the carbs are almost the same as the bridgestone i thought id steal a float from one of the 4 spare carbs i have, and put that in, also uses a 95 main jet as well which i had a few spare, so a new one of those went in,

put it back together, turned on the fuel,

and...

so pretty happy with that,
first kick after 2 years. might take it out for a spin if im not to drunk after ive done my beer brew in the morning. so probably wont take it out for a ride Very Happy

i really need to sell my vtr and buy another 2 stroke,

well, after a successful brew i was in no fit state to go for a ride on any bike, order of the day was a drunken lunch time nap,
last batch of hops added to the mash ton.
doesnt look very appetising i admit Very Happy
http://i58.photobucket.com/albums/g257/hmmmnz/DSC_0727%20Large_zps5zu7nbt8.jpg
but sunday was a good day,
first i took pinky (b120) for a ride to find it was running out of gas at full throttle, so pulled the carb and adjusted the float,
another spin and she was bang on, even managed to get to 55mph on the flat Very Happy hehe

next on the cards was wee red (bridgestone)
had to replace a buggered exhaust gasket, then decided id take her for a spin with out the seat,
ran like a champ!! managed 80mph on the clocks and pulled pretty well getting there,

big red (vtr) got a start up a wee run, as well, just because it'd been such a fruitful day

blacky (bandit) didnt get any love

pics for thread

I'd be pretty chuffed with 80mph indicated speed on any of the older 200's Thumbs Up

The X5 will do 83mph on the clock in perfect conditions (no headwind, rider prone, not too many pies consumed) but that's all, it's at peak revs and even if you could gear it up I don't think the standard engine would pull it.

how fast is 80 on the clocks really though Wink
but yeah i was pretty stoked with that, considering im 110kg and 6'4" not exactly jockey build Very Happy

i reckon with a tweak to the rotary valves and a bit more fuel id easily get another couple of hp,

the bridgestone tuning manual reckons with expansion chambers, a bit of light porting, re-jetting and timing
should be in excess of 28hp.
how much id believe that im not sure,
to me it feels like about 15ish hp at the moment, may be a bit more certainly not in excess of the 20 something odd hp they quote.

80 mph thats good considering 110kg and 6 4. what expansion chambers would you use from a rd or gt or would you get some made.
b120 have not seen one for ages. it looks good condition.

id have to get some made,
higgspeed make chambers to spec, so id probably get them to make a set.

i had a little b120 in new zealand, and the mrs loved it,
she was pretty pissed that i sold it, so i bought her the pink one for her birthday.

hopefully the barrel is still ok, its an even more expensive prospect getting that basdard replated.
