Where's the best place for spares found RD Bitz and Yambitz so far are there any prefered suppliers

RDBitz is NSRNick who often posts on here. It is also worthwhile checking Norbo's LC Crazy website as he does a fair few aircooled parts

Welcome Mike, nice 250 you have picked up there, mine needs a resto but there are a few in the queue ahead of it at the moment.

Some Yambits stuff is great, others not so much, so make sure you ask for opinions on here before spending large sums. The stuff from RDLC Crazy is all pretty much the best you can get, so no dramas with anything from him. As others have said RD James and NSRNick are frequent forum members and offer great service.

muttsnuts on here is your go to man for any carb work and Arrow is the oil pump guru, so make sure you contact either of them if you need advice or assistance.

Enjoy the bike and make sure you participate in the forum as much as you want, we are a friendly bunch and someone will usually have the answer to your conundrum, provided it’s not about pistons! 😂

Welcome to the club. Get out and enjoy whenever possible. 1 small thing I noticed, it looks like you have a C/D gearchange on as mine did when I bought it. Got a new 1 from Yambits. As I say go and clock the miles up and put a grin on your face :D :D

Thanks for that I didn't realise they were different. I am about 15 miles from Box Hill so plan a trip to Rykas as soon as it stops raining!
