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.

Re: Kill Switch

The best advice I can give you is buy a magnetic type from places like the hell team or your local bike shop may have one. There are 2 types of kill switch though, 1 will allow your engine to run while unplugged and not when plugged in - guess how I found that out? The magnetic kill switch is cheape...

Re: What's with suddenly ripping us off?

When you add in all the background costs, plus the license fees etc. It's easy to see where the numbers are going from motorsport. In the current economic climate, people just can't afford it. For myself to attend an event. I'm 2 hours drive from my club rides, which are the closest events for me - ...

Re: Yamaha Ty 175 oil mix ratio?

I run mine at 60:1 in trials format and general around the paddock fun too. Never fouled a plug or had any issues.
I think half the equation is a good quality oil, rather than a who flung dung special.
