... and then if I actually weigh out 160g of ATF I get 235cc of oil!

What's wrong, my maths or my scales? :?

The 250 2C forks are the same as the 125 and 250 singles; 1 1/4" diameter Paolis.

The 'Blue Book' lists 160cc oil for both.

D'oh! I didn't think to refer to that. Cheers Paul.

Update on the tyre problem, I checked the tyres and found them to be oversize, 3.00 18 front, 3.50 18 rear, so this may be the source of the wobble.

Hugo, if you are looking for tyres there is a good option from Avon now in the 2.75 and 3.00 x 18" size. They're called Avon Streetrider and look pretty good. I have just bought a pair for another lightweight bike I've built and they were very good value for money too. Well worth a look.

Thanks Steve, I have actually just bought a pair of Avon's for £65 a pair delivered, although the supplier sent tubeless rather than tubed I was assured by Avon that these are ok with tubes

Great to hear, Hugo. But not surprising; I've heard so little negative from people who've ridden a 2c.

I never have, and I'm jealous.
