Re: Trials in Victoria - MV vs AMA

It's a no-brainer to someone like me who rides a few comps each year for personal challenge, a bit of socialising and shits and giggles. In the past I've just bought day licences & kept my own records of my cards so I could see where I might have placed. Paying for the day licences for myself an...

The trick is to to find an oil that doesn't contain an anti friction additive since that's not great for a wet clutch. Most folk that use ATF choose it because it'...

Re: Penrite Semi/Full Synthetic MC-4ST oils?

Take a look at lubealloy.com.au. I run one of their oils in my adventure bike and it shifts significantly smoother than off the shelf oils. Alastair Thanks Alastair, but I like to support my local shop, he does Penrite and gives me a good price. Penrite it is. Why not just use the recommended Penri...

Penrite Semi/Full Synthetic MC-4ST oils?

My preferred local option for oil is a Penrite dealer, and I like the fact that Penrite is an Australian company. I've been using Penrite ATF oil in my bikes ('07 GG '13 Sherco) and have been happy enough with it. Now I've added a '17 Beta 300 2t to the stable and am contemplating what to use. The r...

Magnetic mudguard holder

Not really a product, just something I've made and fitted that seems to work well. It's common practice to replace the bolts holding the rear mudguard with cable ties or plastic bolts so they break before the guard does when the bike flips. I got sick of replacing cable ties and still had a little t...
