Hope for those of us that need spares...

Most of you MZ/MuZ owners would have used or known about BSA Regal in the UK and the fantasic service they supplied as a spares dealer for MZ/MuZ parts. They no longer supply spares for MZs.

There is now a new dealer in the UK for both MZ bikes and spares. GRAHAMS MOTORCYCLES

They has a small stock of Skorpion spares up on their site so far. Click here to see this. This is a sample of what they have...

Head race bearing kit for all Skorpion models

Price : £17.16
Stock Item : Yes

Front brake lever
Price : £16.09
Stock Item : Yes

Rear wheel bearing ( requires 2 )
Price : £6.30
Stock Item : Yes

They also have an eBay Store. This has no items listed yet.

Lets hope they will end up stocking a full range of spares so we can keep our Skorpions on the road for many years to come.

I am in now way contected with this shop.

17/11/2007 {EDIT} I emailed Grahams Motorcycles to let them know that I had put this artcile up about them. Besides being thankful for this they also passed on this info.....

"We have actually been an MZ dealer for 10 years and decided it was time for someone to have a good go at the MZ spares. So we have taken it on from BSA. As you have seen, there is a web shop, which i will be adding to daily when time permits ! We have lots of skorpion spares, including fuel tanks and body work. "

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. and
2. Using a manometer of some sort. Carbtune, Twinmax or home made
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 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.

Unless it was still freezing t…

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, …
