Decided to pull the PE175 out of Reg and see if the GT200 would fit. I was starting to have my doubts. It certainly came apart much easier than it went together Very Happy



Looks pretty close and will fit in once I modify the top rear engine mount. The frame is 100mm wide and the lug on the motor is 105mm so I will cut the right hand top rear mount off and re-weld it in place once its located properly.



Once the rear mount is modded the front mounts will fit nicely. Even room for the right hand exhaust to clear the down tube. The motor is slightly offset in the RV frame.







I will be able to use the standard 112 link 520 chain which Iím happy about.



Angle grinder with a cutting disc tonight . . . .

Quick one tonight

Just cut the offending bracket and in it popped.

Threw the DR600 20 litre tank on top and it is going to work just fine . . . . . . . . I hope 😊

I went to get the ports measured and chambers designed before heading to Ianís to get the chambers made. At the end of the measuring process we lifted the barrel off and found the motor had a small seizure, in both cylinders, at one stage. Most likely due to lack of oil.







It will need new pistons and rebore. Before the chambers will be made.

There were a lot of things that needs modifying on Reg so decided on a different tack with this bike, and put the PE175 motor back into Reg and use it as a display bike. . .

The good news is the GT200X5 will live again. . . . . .

A generous friend has given me this very nice TS175ER with no rear wheel, rusted through tank but if was free.

The plan is now to put the X5 motor in there, get it running then do a sweet big wheel conversion from there. This will require a new swingarm with jackshaft to house the fatter rear wheel

That TS is lovely, looks to be if fairly good condition too.

Those pistons might clean up? If the barrels are ok it could be worth a shot.

Some tuners say if a piston seizes on running in, just strip it, file off the high spots and go again Exclamation

Thanks Yamfan

Agree the GT200 would clean up ok for a roady, wouldn't race with it like that

Will wait until the TS185 arrives and have another look then
