    I raced one once when it ran !!! they regularly blow the crankshaft oil seals which are a separate bolt on item. Also check the points gap, and compression as they only have one piston ring on the very top of the piston and they often break so start checking.
    Is i a persang or a trials based motor??

    i used to have a bultaco 250 trials bike, was a bit heavy for me at 11 yrs old lol. me an it almost went down a mine shaft on madron carn when i was 12, dropped it and slid down the mouth of the shaft and got stopped by a bush.

    to the point! was always a bugger to start, infact had to start on a soft plug and change to a hard plug when hot.

    check compression!

    not a lot of power from one of those things, lots of torque, but its a bit of an old thumper engine!
