Not words you hear spoken in the UK (well, not in my circles anyway)!

If you ever get to the USA out in Wild West (Wyoming), stop by. I can satisfy your curiosity for whatever you might want to see, handle, or shoot. Or not, as you wish.

I couldn't live without my guns. But the one I traded was a dime a dozen. I think I made out real well. I know how much the previous owner has put into this bike. Powder coating alone is more than $300. Wish I could find these deals everyday. lol

Partzilla is good for looking up when assembling stuff--if ya get lost. Mostly they get the diagrams right but sometimes 'not' but usually an obvious error.

Thanks. I just found those earlier. Going to print a bunch up tonight. The whole engine is disassembled. I don't know what's there and what's missing as of yet. Winter project.

It's better to remain silent and be considered a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.

It actually blew my mind that my 175s don't have the cush drive hub and yet my DT100 does!

Would that be, then, the place where you could get "buggered up the backside with a round root vegetable?" Just trying to get a feel for the area, there....:ROFLOL

The earlier 175's had the cush drive... the monoshock DT175's use a lot more lightweight "racing" parts from the YZ125 and IT175. Including the rear hub without a cush drive. Some of the parts on the DT like the brake backing plate are aluminum where the YZ/IT used magnesium... and the brake arm is pressed steel on the DT while the YZ/IT had aluminum... but same basic parts. The monoshock DT175 is very much "race bred". :Throttle
