Are the NZ 350 footpegs correct for a DKW NZ 350-1 also?

The ones currently on my NZ 350-1 are round in cross section, not square.

My DKW 3PS is suffering from electrical problems, such as backfiring and low spark. The problem will be investigated in the next few months, and hopefully the problem will be figured out, then I can ask you fellows for the location of replacement parts once I establish what I need. Thanks for offer ...

In order to reduce the cost of restoration, I suggest using reproduction parts, especially for the rare parts that are expensive. You can restore the motorrad to the original appearance and replace reproduction parts with original parts as you save money to afford them. The search will be long, taki...

The spring is partially compressed when the ball bearing and foot peg are installed. The spring presses the ball into the slot and detentes in the foot peg, so that the peg snaps into position when folded inward, and when folded outward. The holding action of the ball bearing is not very strong. It ...

I have the correct tool for the reeding on the bands. I can reed those bands for you if you make a second peg.

I understand you are afraid that "restoring" the bike would lower the collector value? I would like to know your view on this, because if the restoration job was done in a way that copied the original appearance, it could save the parts from further corrosion. Leaving the bike in that rusted conditi...

You guys are going to laugh at me for this. I took the carburetor apart and found that all the jets and the needle were the correct type for use with the cyclone air cleaner on an NZ 350/1. The reason why the engine was starving for air was my fault. I was using the choke (air control) BACKWARDS, an...

Has ANYONE had success getting Faak-Tillmans to respond to email? I need to buy parts from them and their website does not allow purchases from America. If these fellows do not send items to the USA, then maybe I can pay one of the Germans on this forum to purchase parts and send them to USA. I need...

I wrote to Faak-Tillmans in German and English and asked ti buy the main and air jets and needle, but have not heard back from them. Their website does not allow purchases from the United States of America, only Europe. Thomas, if you purchase the parts I need from Tillmans, could I buy them through...

Thanks Thomas!

What does the "85" mean for the main jet? Does it mean 0,85mm size or 85cc flowrate?

Guys, we need to find some 350-1 carb needles and ports. If I can find information on the dimensions of the parts, maybe I can have a bunch custom made for us. What do you think?
