Zzero's Skorpion Sport Cup...

Time to have a look at another great MuZ. I asked ZzerO, who hangs out at online on the forums at http://forum.monoconnection.nl/, to tell us about his lovely yellow MuZ. So take it away Zzero… He is in the Netherlands.


The this bike is officially called a Skorpion Sport Cup, they have the side fairings standard, mine where taken off for a while because I had a minor crash with a pushbike rider, not my fault...

I've had the bike for about 1.5 year know, bought it in May last year, but I didn’t have my drivers licence yet. I got my licence in August so from that time I could actually ride my MuZ.




At first I only rode for commuting and for fun. Then I went on the track for 2 times (Croix en Ternois). That was so much fun that I only wanted to ride on the track. As I’m still studying, I can’t afford to go to on the track that much. So now I don’t use my sport to much for commuting, and I’m saving up some money to go on the track more often.






mods made to the bike so far:

- Front brake system changed to Brembo, both calliper and master cylinder, from a Yamaha SZR 660.
- White power progressive springs in the front.
- Yamaha FZR 600 rear shock
-
Leovince USA slip on muffler
- Front end lowered( 10 mm) and clip ons under the top triple clamp.
- Rear end is lifted with 128 mm dogbones
- 'home made' rearsets which give more ground clearance
- Rear and front fender were personalised.

Tuning 40mm BING CV carburetors for BMW motorcycles by ear.

Steve Doyle has put together this great and simple guide to tuning your Bing carbs. No need for expensive tuning equipment. So over to Steve...... Any feed back on this How To please email me and I will pass it onto Steve.

There are 3 common methods to syncing the carbs. They will all work
1. Shorting the plugs. http://bmwmotorcycletech.info/synchcarbs.htm and http://www.airheads.org/content/view/216/98/
2. Using a manometer of some sort. Carbtune, Twinmax or home made http://www.airheads.org/content/view/183/98/
3. Using your ears. No comprehensive articles that I could find..

In the spirit of learning to service and tune at home and after lots of reading, I decided that for me the "by ear" technique might be the most useful, as it doesn't require any special tools and can be performed anywhere. There is no risk of electrical damage to the bike or the one doing the adjusting.

It was very difficult to find a comprehensive description of the procedure, so using the combined kn…

Ride impression of the Yamaha MT-03.....

Yamaha have realeased their new 660 based single. The MT-03. See I so want one....MT-03 The bike can be had in Europe but not here in Aussie land. I have asked Yamaha Australia if they will bring them in. They said "No plans at this stage to introduce the MT03 in to Australia." To rub salt into the wounds, axxess, the forum admin guy at http://forum.monoconnection.nl/ got to ride one. NOOOO!!! So unfair. He translated his ride impression into English for those of us who will not get to ride this. Thank you mate for doing this for us. So lets see what he has to say.....

Saturday 16 February I could try the Yamaha MT-03 at Gebben Motors. I could try a brand new red 2008 model. After a short instruction and a warning because of the new tires we were ready to go! The first thing I noticed was the enormous wide steer and the upright riding position It gave me a feeling of absolute control and power! The seat was quit hard but not uncomfortable at all.

The petite MZ...

I asked a question on the MZOG • MZ Owners Group if I should call my bike an MZ or a MuZ. I got some very informative replies. One reply was emailed to me with a link to Wikipedia MZ entry.

What really caught my eye on this webpage was this very petite MZ 125 4 stroke water cooled single.



This is what was said about this bike… “MZ currently manufactures a line of 125cc 4-stroke motorcycles using a new and powerful engine designed in-house. The current MZ 125 produces 15 crank-horsepower (11 kW) and almost 10 lbf·ft (14 N·m) of torque. It is a liquid-cooled pressure-lubricated dual-overhead-cam design with 4 valves, high-voltage electronic ignition and an 11000 rpm ignition cut-off. This is officially the most powerful 125cc 4-stroke engine mass-manufactured and has also proved highly reliable. This engine is used in 4 models of motorcycle, all of which share a common frame. The frame is a tube-steel backbone with the engine as a stressed bottom member. Changes in the suspension, facia, …
