Replaced the scruffy old Lucas mag on the sprinter with a scruffy old BTH mag and its like a new bike, starts second kick ish and even ticks over. It runs so good ive about wrecked the slick.
Chop seems OK, hopefully oil leaks all sorted (for now). Made a ram pipe out of a turbo inlet, narrowed the bars 2", repositioned the front caliper so there is less knock off on the pads and reworked the rear brake linkage to give more leverage so the brakes seem pretty good now. Also gone down 3 teeth on the rear sprocket to make for better crusin' and finally found some more big finned exhaust rings. I will give it a good run after next weekend, i'm not cleaning it again..

NIce!! so you put 43 tooth out back? what is your front sprocket? I have a 20T up front and 46T out back, but thinking about doing the 43 swap.

Yes i'm on 20/43 now and it seems spot on for cruising about which to be fair is all i will be doing on it.
