This Is my 1975 Suzuki TS185. 183cc 2-stroke enduro bike with oil injector and a manual 4 speed tranny. Its missing the Speedo, Headlight, taillight, turn signals, battery, and thats about it. i recently ordered a clutch cable, clutch lever, rear inner tube, and air filter from bikebandit and are going to install the parts soon. The carb is messed up though because i replaced the fuel lines, cleaned and sprayed the petcock and carb but the bike doesnt want to idle below 3000rpm and the idle adjust screw is so fouled it doesnt work. the bike has good compression however because i cant kick start it (being 113lbs) i have to put my weight into it. It starts 2nd kick and is in pretty good shape for its age (1975). this isnt the original paint though which was an ugly yellow.

Ah, local to your machine. You'll have to look below the post window and select "Manage Attachments"

From there you can upload your pics. There is a size limit tho

Default Why are there two plugs in a single cylinder?

I have a 1975 Suzuki TS185, it's a single cylinder but 2 plugs are in the head? And pics of the bike online show the same, I can not figure it out, I asked motorcycle mechanics and they don't understand either, can anyone enlighten me?
