  1. I haven't heard of one of these before: Ipothosys Aria v12 on Ebay Sent from my SM-G925F using Tapatalk
  2. If you search, I posted pictures of the different clutch hubs together and you'll be able to see the differences. I changed a Tenni single plate to a double plate, which necessitated buying a different clutch hub. If you really want a RAM single plate clutch in a 6 speed you might be able to pick a clutch hub up from someone who's done the same switch. I'm keeping hold of mine to keep my options open in the future. Sent from my SM-G925F using Tapatalk

  4. It is probably possible to get the alloy (cracking) single plate flywheel remade in steel. It's a pretty simple shape. Sent from my SM-G925F using Tapatalk
  5. The centre 'button' of the 5 speed has to be replaced with the one already fitted to your Guzzi 6 speed too. This means you have to dismantle the ready assembled RAM unit. The 5 speed pushrod has a smaller diameter. Sent from my SM-G925F using Tapatalk
  6. Have you tried checking and resetting valve clearances to 0.15 and 0.20 mm.? This got rid of a hesitation/cough on my Tenni Le Mans.
  7. I did the same conversion on a Tenni. Used second hand 2 plate clutch and new clutch hub. I used the original pushrod. There are some posts and pics where I recorded this. The parts you have look correct. I listed the part numbers on a picture. The pushrod 'button' can shift/slip during reassembly. I had to take it apart and put it together again because of this.

  8. I believe KTM own Husquvarna now. I read a couple of comparisons between the KTM 690 and the 701 that suggest that the latter has smoother fuelling and less vibration. I'll have to have a sit on them, if I can reach!I had an R100GS for quite a long time and I miss the opportunity to take the odd off road excursion. There are quite a few permissive byways nearby on the North York Moors to explore. Betas are street legal here. I lingered and lost out on a 'good as new' Beta X Trainer 300 last week for £4000. I think the KTM Freeride is a similar concept. Another alternative that's a bit more oldschool, and less expensive, is a Suzuki DRZ 400. Sent from my SM-G925F using Tapatalk
  9. That looks a great ride. There was one of those on EBay UK recently that had a nice looking fairing fitted. You should be able to see it if you look at completed listings. How tall is the seat? Would I struggle at 5'8"? I've been looking around for a similar type of bike recently, maybe a KTM 690 Enduro or a CCM GP450. I also quite liked the look of the Beta X Trainer 300.

  10. I can see it now. The low mileage is a novelty, and it looks well preserved, but as Scud says, there are known issues to sort out. To switch the clutch to a twin plate is quite an expense unless you get lucky with second hand parts. I do think it's a question of 'when' rather than 'if' with the aluminium flywheel. My Tenni flywheel had the early signs of radial cracking at around 12 000 miles. The silencers do look a little 'low slung'. I've got the carbon wrapped Lafranconis and they are higher at the rear. No doubt it would appreciate in value if you parked it up for a few years. The premium is in the low mileage and that's gone as soon as you start using it. I think the price is a bit steep. I think around £5500 would be right.
  11. The link doesn't seem to work mate. Sent from my SM-G925F using Tapatalk

    You can tell by the rattle! One type rattles with the clutch pulled in. One rattles with the clutch released. Just can't remember which is which. Scud will know. There's a thread somewhere commenting on just this. Sent from my SM-G925F using Tapatalk
  13. I'll have a couple (in UK). Thanks to Scud and Chuck for their time and effort with this.
  14. Vaguely connected. Here's a photo of my 1973 MK III masquerading as a Desmo. Sent from my SM-G925F using Tapatalk
  15. There's also an email list called 'Bevelheads' that you can subscribe to. Very knowledgeable, but not the most accessible discussion group.
