Re: Will a XR 200 clutch cover fit a tlr250 ?

Depending on the damage, engine cases and covers can be TIG welded. But if the more readily available trailbike parts fit, that is another option

Re: Restart to the trials calendar

You don't have to be over a certain age to get sick or worse from Rona. But if you can wash your hands before touching your face, particularly your mouth, nose and eyes... You are less likely to get sick - from anything as mild as a sniffle to the corona virus family.

Restart to the trials calendar

G'day everyone. I have been giving half an ear to the football codes all trying to tell various governments when they are going to be starting again after Rona closed everything down. Considering the health advisors said close and the public face of the Qld government at least is no discussion has b...

Re: Engine size for beginner?

This is a much larger can of worms than you might think. Are you interested in riding twinshock, classic or modern rock hoppers? Are you looking to get out and have a bit of fun in the low to middle grades or up into the upper echelons? 2 stroke or 4 stroke? I'm assuming petrol not electric. No bike...

Re: Trials in Victoria - MV vs AMA

A lot of people and hence a few clubs have been wavering on the MA or AMA decision. The exorbitant MA fees, and that white elephant of ridernet are part of the reason for people to want to leave the MA franchise. The points keeping clubs affiliated with the MA franchise are coverage for property own...

Re: 2020 events calendars.

That is too true young David.

But what about the other great opportunities for us to ponder which pony gets a weekend out of the stables? Mono or twinshock?

2020 events calendars.

Hello everybody, I'm just curious if there is a Qld events calendar in circulation. Even if it is a little more written in pencil than ink. Just something to roughly work on as we plan holidays etc. I've been asked by friends and family if I'm available during the Easter weekend and a couple of othe...

Re: 2019 Scorpa 250 clutch drag

Have you tried contacting your dealer? They might be 2 1/2 hours away, but it's still hello over the phone. They would be my 1st port of call. If I fork out all those hard earned $$$ and it isn't right, I'd be picking up the phone. I had a clutch issue in my old '02 290 Sherco, ended up rekitting th...

Re: new TY175 kickstart lever assemblies

It was a couple of years ago that I bought my new assembly. I think it was a 2 or 3 week wait from Japan too. For a 40 year old bike you'd be surprised at how many genuine original parts are still available from Yamaha. I can't find the air intake trumpet from the carby to airbox yet, so I will have...

Re: Basket Cases

Gee wizz Greg, at the rate you're going there won't be too many TY's left in the wilds of Aussie barns before long.

You seem to have some kind of TY magnetic attraction happening.
