Derbi differences? laguna sport vs. laguna ts

So Ive been researching derbis lately and was wondering about the Laguna TS? whats it all about? whats the difference between a laguna sport and a laguna ts? just a european version of the laguna?

Re: Derbi differences? laguna sport vs. laguna ts

I have never seen those.

Re: Derbi differences? laguna sport vs. laguna ts

don't laguna sports come with the flatreed? That there looks like a piston port to me.

Re: Derbi differences? laguna sport vs. laguna ts

Laguna comes with Piston port motor.

Re: Derbi differences? laguna sport vs. laguna ts

Yes. I believe the TS is a Europe-only model. The only real variations with U.S. Lagunas is that some are electric start models. Mine didn't work.

Re: Derbi differences? laguna sport vs. laguna ts

Steve, it worked just needed new battery. I had one made but i left the switch on and it drained. It's realy only effective when the bike is warmed up and the battery is fully charged.

Re: Derbi differences? laguna sport vs. laguna ts

while were at it who knows all the variant differences?

Re: Derbi differences? laguna sport vs. laguna ts

TTs.. some of the earlier bikes imported.. piston ports

SLEs... pyramid reeds until '86 or so when they switched to flat reeds

Sports and Sport Rs... flat reeds

Re: Derbi differences? laguna sport vs. laguna ts

early '80s SLs also... piston ports

The Laguna Sport has a plastic tail section and a longer seat. It looks like the TS has a shorter seat, no tail, and a rack. The electric start was an option that could be added.

Re: Derbi differences? laguna sport vs. laguna ts

Spokes are 16" and Mags are 17" on the old Variants.

Re: Derbi differences? laguna sport vs. laguna ts

oh dang

Re: Derbi differences? laguna sport vs. laguna ts

Wow! That is Sweet! Wonder what motor that has?

Re: Derbi differences? laguna sport vs. laguna ts

Love the Derbi saddlebags.

mis-info abound.

All early derbis, up to 81, maybe 82 have piston port motors. This is SL, SLE, TT, C5, Laguna Sport. Also the earlier versions all had 17" wheels, either mag or spokes (including ALL TTs).

Also, much of the transition bikes (80, 81) have piston port motors with the pyramid reed block cast into the cases but blocked out, so they are still piston port.

I'm sure there is a bounty of color combos, options (like the backrest, harley foot pegs, skid plates and more), on top of different motor combos, let alone drivetrain combos (not all derbi brake plates are the same, especially the rears). Everything derbi is a crapshoot and I think it'd be impossible to document every detail through the years.

oh yea, those are probably from france. For some reason the c5 and laguna were semi-popular there

Re: Derbi differences? laguna sport vs. laguna ts

yes my 82 Sl is a piston port.

Re: Derbi differences? laguna sport vs. laguna ts

Also I have 16" Spokes on my 83sl.

Re: Derbi differences? laguna sport vs. laguna ts

correction 83 is the year.

Re: Derbi differences? laguna sport vs. laguna ts

CuperZach has good info.

4 stars dont carry the same brake plates either. Some TSM's came with 5 stars. Parts are fairly difficult to find unless sourced from overseas. TT forks are different than those of SL/SLE and carry a different fender.

Another well known fact...people fucking love derbis...

Re: Derbi differences? laguna sport vs. laguna ts

holy shit, i didnt even know that version of the laguna existed.

Re: Derbi differences? laguna sport vs. laguna ts

so are the Variant, TT, SL, SLE differences mostly cosmetic or were there like diff carbs and varos? like puch 1, 1.5, and 2 hp models?

Re: Derbi differences? laguna sport vs. laguna ts

Laguna TS is a shitty broke ass harley.

Yea, differences between early variants were merely cosmetic. That said, I do believe there are different speed ratings for the motors. I've seen cases stamped both "25" and "30", on the variator side. I'm not sure what the actual restriction is, but it must be something more than just a spacer between the cheeks because why bother stamping cases with just that.

Later variants, namely the flat reed SLE and Sport had different wheels (7 stars vs 4), fenders, and other cosmetic detailing. Not sure about speed ratings for those years.

Re: Derbi differences? laguna sport vs. laguna ts

I have two stock top ends. One piston has a top dyke ring and the others have the regular two ring piston.

Re: Derbi differences? laguna sport vs. laguna ts

what are they off jesse?

Re: Derbi differences? laguna sport vs. laguna ts

One is off a laguna. and the one with the dyke ring piston was the stock 83' sl. from my bike.

Some around here have restictors in the intake. I think only some pyramid reeds had those.
