Any idea who raced factory MZ's. I remember, Hailwood among them, Derek or Dave Woodman at the mid sixties TT's. I was surprised to read in your article that Pete Williams was the last to win a GP. Would like to see a complete list.

Mikuni Carb
I have a Mikuni VM32SC carb off a Suzuki 550cc twin, I would like to fit it to my ETZ 301 FUN. I am looking for jetting information please can enybody help.
Cardiff WALES
I believe the bike was a Suzuki GS 500 or GS550 it
was a 2 stroke twin aparently this carb is a direct replacment for an MZ
TS250. All that needs doing is to turn about 1/8inch off the inlet stub of
the carb and block the oil injection hole. This is said to dramaticaly
improve the performance of the 250
As I have a MZ ETZ 301 FUN and wish to fit the carb to this I assume that
the jets would require changing, also Has anyone a solution to the manifold
mod required for the 300cc

I believe the carb is from a T500 twin made in the mid-1970s. Ed.

03 Baghira SM
Does anybody know how I can get a hold of a service manual for my motorcycle? Preferably in english... the only auth. dealer of MZ is in Florida and cannot be contacted via phone or e-mail, so I'm wondering if they are out of business. Not to mention that major publications don't have manuals... it's very frustrating, because I am itching to ride it! ...actually all I need is a wiring diagram. Thanx

Well, to put a long story short, the previous owner had the motorcycle in storage for over a year before my inquiry. At this point the owner had lost track of the battery. After setting an appt. the owner attemped to start the bike using a similarily sized battery, which had the poles on opposite ends. Needless to say, when I arrived, the wiring harness was a mess of shorts and wire insulation burnt so bad that the color was indistinguishable in places... I did get a great deal on the bike at the expense of the previous owner's attempts, but I never foresaw a difficult time locating a service manual for this model. It does share many mechanical and electrical components to Yamaha's Raptor ATV, which I will use as a guideline if my efforts to locate the appropriate manual are in vain. There are so many repairs needed to the wiring in this bike that building a completely new harness would probably save me time and headaches in the future.

Hi MZ friends:
Here I'm sending photos attached of my two motorcycles. As you can see the Brazilian model was different if you compare with the produced in the DDR. (It´s look like a Kawa 400 ) Till today I had five MZ, and all were strong and lasting. In Brazil were produced around 13.000 between 1984 and 1987. Some spare parts were produced here and is not difficult to buy in small stores. Today, in Brazil are running aprox. 300 of this unforgettable motorcycle.

Hi, I love MZ and want to share my feelings with the readers of this site. My first ever bike was an ETZ 150, with a beautiful metallic blue tank. I got it not long after I started my first job. I was 18, footloose and fancy-free. My machine cost me only three hundred and fifty pounds with only twenty miles on the clock. People always underestimated MZs in those days (mid eighties), and growing up and living in the Isle of Man, with probably the most bike conscious general public in the world, I had to learn to defend my pride and joy with fists, knowledge and guts. MZ dominated 2-stroke GPs until their race ace Ernst Dagnar defected and passed on the technology to Suzuki. Even in the eighties I wasn't too far behind 250 gammas, could hold my own against Superdreams, and blasted away KH125s, et al. I took her off-road now and again, and dropped her four or five times on the road before she finally found a new home. I've regretted selling her ever since. Of course, knowing what I know now, I'd have to admit that the brakes were pretty nasty, that she never started first kick, and that she had a shocking tendency to semi-stall and go into reverse. You read right, and I swear its true. Have any other readers experienced this? At the time I was told by someone that this was caused by the engine four-stroking, a bizarre theory which I believed until I learnt a little about engines. What could have caused it? After the MZ I moved onto Hondas, Kawasakis and a BSA. I've been checking out the MuZ range, and sometime I'll return to the fold. If you don't know the MZ ETZs then checkout a movie called "Waking Ned", it features an ETZ 250, (and it was filmed in the Isle of Man). -- Bob Teare -- sensei at gol dot com

I noticed your web site. I have been interested in Eastern European and Russian motorcycles for some time.i am considering purchasing one of three possible bikes. I was hoping you could tell me how good these models are and what they might be worth.

The first it A 1974 MZ TS150 that is showroom new with 32 original miles on it.

The second is a 1974 MZ TS250, in good condition, with approximately 7,500 miles on it.

The third is a 2000 Planeta 350 with less than 2,000 miles on it.

Do you have any thoughts on any of these? Any advice would be greatlyl appreciated.

I saw your post on the European Motorcycle Universe. You asked about the value of 1974 MZ TS250 in various condition. I have owned a couple, and currently have one with about 3500 mi. I think they are terrific bikes, certainly better than their contemporary, the Jawa Californians. Mz is lighter, about as fast as a Jawa 350 twin, and corners and stops better, although this may be faint praise.

Nevertheless, I think a lot of people tend to overstate their value, especially if they have one to sell. For a used ts250, I think a reasonable value is from $100 to 500 dollars for a really nice one. For a new one in the crate, $1000.00, tops. $700 is more reasonable. The world is full of assholes who think they are sitting on treasure with a couple of MZ in crates. Their attraction was always that the were so cheap, yet surprisingly good. If not cheap, they are no longer amusing.

A lot of these bikes were leaned against trees in the 70's, usually when the owner gave up on the electrical system. Very few people still run them in the US, but reasonably priced ones always seem to appear from time to time.

This is a cool site. I need to get some info. I just got an MZ 250. I know nothing about them except that they are really neat looking bikes. The bike has a silver (chrome) gas tank. It has TS 250 on the rear of the seat. On the gas cap it has "World Champion Years 65, 66, 67, 68".

How do I find the year and model of this bike? I actually got two of them. One is complete, the other is for parts. Is this a 12 volt or 6 volt bike? I am not getting a spark and I need some tech info so I can work on it and get it running. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am a cuban 20 years all that owns an MZ ES 150cc. But I love English Classic motorcycles, especially BSA's. Of course I am interested in buying one of those impressing motors by her in Cuba. There is not sufficient information in order to repair the inner of those huge motors. By the way here is very difficult the fact of finding some spare parts for those bikes, we have a lot of Russian bikes, or any other from the Socialist Field but Good Motorbykes as yours, just from before the Cuban revolution. My father wants to buy a IHZ motorcycle two cylinder but I really do not agree. I want to convince him but I understand that maybe those bikes in this country should became in a problem. So I want your advice and help in order to know for example how hard should be for a turner to make a piston or any other spares.

I think that to ship some spares from anywhere to Cuba should be difficult, it's that true....

Please I would appreciate any kind of help...

Sincerely yours,

I'm Emil Mlkoff from Bulgaria. I found your web site while searching for potential buyers of my motorcycle. I have an old model of MZ 'Trophy Sieger' made back in 1963 in East Germany. It's completely original. It is red, and in perfect technical condition and on movement.

I have that kind of request! Could you contact me with people, who might be interested in buying it?

If you want I can send you pictures of the motorcycle through e-mail, cause the web site of the motorcycle is gone!
If you are interested in it, please respond!
I'm sorry for bothering you!

I am Wilton de Almeida from Brazil. I crossed all America, from Alaska to Brazil in 1997, by motorcycle. Now I have been planning cross Africa by motorcycle too. MZ has any good one to make this travel? Two years ago I met a German motorcyclist that was traveling with a 660 MZ bike. Now I am going to travel with some bike like that. Do you have dealers in Africa? How many kinds of motos do you have? How many cost each one? Could you send me some options, please. -- Thanks -- Wilton de Almeida -- Wilton -- wiltonalmeida at

I checked MZ in your list of German motorcycles. Can you make an addition, that MZ was divided in 1992: MuZ (Motorrad und Zweiradwerk) was founded, but also ITG Engineering GmbH, founded by Eberhard Bredel, the the last director of the original MZ company, with the staff from the works development department. ITG engineering got the rights for the trademark MZ and the production lines of the 250 cc and 300 cc 2-stroke models. They moved those to Turkey, where real original 2-stroke MZs are produced by now, imported to 30 countries. The productions started 1994, the factory Kanuni Kombassan is situated near Istanbul.

MZ was the only motorcycle make of the former socialist part of Germany. Those bikes were primitive two strokes, but they were robust and cheap.
