    Hi,  I am currently rebuilding my T160 which I have owned since new in 1976 and think it is best to replace the original con rods due to their age and having covered 45,000 miles.  However, visually, they are in very good condition.  I have a Norman Hyde 1,000 cc kit that I will be fitting.  Has anyone experience of fitting and using the Thunder Engineering con rods?  I know that the Carillo rods are very good, but expensive.

    With respect to the N Hyde kit, I intend retaining the standard cams and carbs; has anyone got experience of doing this, or should I change to 30mm carbs?  The bike will be purely for road use.

    Thanks for any advice.
