Re: Magnetic mudguard holder

Actually, if you mount the magnets the wrong way around they are a completely repellent idea. :P

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...

Brake/Tail/number plate light - switch on rear master cylinder banjo bolt, a small ebay sourced tail/stop/plate light and bracket. I took the light off the plas...

Re: Who wears body armour

I'm also getting more fragile and slower to repair. I went with MTB protection as I reckon it's more suited to trials speeds and impacts than most MC gear. Dainese Trailskin knee pads - very happy - good protection, comfortable, stay in place, better than most ventilation. Troy lee Designs 7850 shir...

Sherco steering frame stops - replacements

A while ago I replaced the pathetic Sherco plastic frame stops with some half stainless tube siliconed in place. Frame Stop.JPG I sent the bike for a fairly significant un-piloted flight today - got off lightly with a dented tank and forks needing a re-alignment. The protector/stop in the photo abov...

Re: Extra fuel for the bush

I go with a couple of aluminium 1l bottles in a backpack. A very cheap solution if you don't mind fuel on your back - not ideal really. https://www.rays.com.au/wanderer-aluminium-drink-bottle-1l-raw/517811.html I'd like to knock up a simple carrier like a bicycle drink bottle holder to sit on the fr...

Keihin slide return spring

I've just moved onto a Sherco with Keihin PWK carb, from a GasGas with Dellorto. I'm finding the throttle very light on the Sherco and a bit easy to wind on too far! Does anyone know if there is a stiffer spring available? Or perhaps a spring that could be coerced to fit? I've had a search but not f...
