    they do know there stuff over there. one of the guys builds new tz750 cases and other parts. lots of the guys race and have tz250/350/750's plus other racing 2 strokes. they are giving you the answers, just not the ones you want to hear.

    Yhh . It’s a bit dead over here in the uk with that sort of stuff . I can buy everything I need , it’s just these pistons , I should really just listen to the guy who races with them . Seems to swear by them

    Are you building a water cooled engine by starting with RD components?

    Yes a/b crankcases . Using tz750 top end . Been done plenty and I seem to have everything planned now . I have a dry clutch housing with kickstart already . You can buy a water pump that runs off the oil pump .

    Are you making any progress on the project? I've bought parts from Fondseca and am impressed.

    Spending all my money on a zxr400 for the road atm . Then I have a lot of work to do on my mg to sell so I can rent a house with a garage hopefully or a big garden for a shed . Don’t earn an awful lot so it’s one job at a time

    Please post about this engine when you work on it. What an interesting build!

    Gonna be a long wait , I’m going to start investing some money , when I have £8000 I can think about building just the engine . The rest of the bike seems cheap by comparison and I already have wheels/suspension . At least I can paint it myself .lol
