Re: Magnetic mudguard holder

Not a bad idea but the expert riders with balls of steel might have a few issues.

Re: Grades?

outforfun - I believe the number of grades is the same between QLD and VIC. If we compare (the old names) between states: Expert=Expert A grade = A grade B grade = B grade C grade = C+ grade Clubperson = C Grade Introductory = Clubman Why is there a '+' Grade? The answer to this is in the history of...

Re: New to Trials Brisbane Northside

Nice work Tim, KX65 footpegs fit to a TY175 with a small amount of angle grinding and work quite well, not sure if they fit the 250 though. De-coking the exhaust by burning on a fire or similar is a must as it transforms a 40 year old gummed up exhaust and allows the engine to breath as it was desig...

Re: Basket Cases

In reply to Phil, I would be very surprised if a kickstart shaft with the end welded on would last more than 2 kicks. The weld would create a weak spot in the steel shaft due to the heat imparted by welding effecting the microstructure of the steel. The steel they use for shafts isn't the garden var...

Re: Gas gas txt250 07 hard start

Before changing anything, ensure you have the right technique to start it. Gassers revolve the engine very few times per a kick start in comparison to most motorcycles. End result is you need to deliver a very sharp jab of a kick to impart the energy to start the bike. I have found you need to stand...

Re: Magazine Articles

Hi All,

Found this article while on tour in NZ.

Can anyone name a trials manufacturer who hasn't dabbled in an 'explorer' model?

Re: Basket Cases

Hi Everyone, I had a great time thanks Graham, both at the trial and on holiday. I was in Byron Bay on the Sunday night after the trials and back through Surfers the day after. I saw a Banana Plantation, Avocado Grove? and a sugar cane crop just to remind me of where I was. I don't know about the Bu...

Re: Basket Cases

You cant plastic weld it?

My Crazy idea would be to clean it out really well with soap, then as slowly as you dare with thinners and acetone and put a layer of epoxy inside the tank. I wouldn't recommend that to a friend though.

Re: COFFS HARBOUR Old bike and rider days

Hey Greg, I certainly wouldn't describe myself as fearless, as you can see from that picture. I think that particular photo was the first time over the Blue Wave and i had just reached what can only be described as the wipe out point of the obstacle. You have certainly succeeded in your goal to make...

Re: 2017 Rule Changes

Here is my attempt at Australian trials rules.

Can you ask MA to just adopt your Moms as a rule change proposal? :D
