Re: Basket Cases

David, I have never done anything like this so this question may be totally wrong. When you machine the brake shoes, do you leave the actuation arm in the bottom position or do you have the actuation arm in the anticipated position where the shoes just contact the inside of the drum? And how do you ...

Re: Basket Cases

David,
Regarding "Custard Tart", I don't think that that bike was "Custard Tart". I think it may have been a TY and the yellow was all over the bike and it was not a very nice look. I hope some others can remember the bike I am thinking of.

Re: Basket Cases

Reading about CUSTARD TART, I recall another Custard Tart which was a TY I think and ridden often by MR. So there must have been more than 1 Custard Tart. I don't remember the Honda one ridden by JB. Would some one with a better memory please explain???? Was there a batch of Custard Tart paint that ...

Re: Basket Cases

David,
I think you asked the wrong question. I think you would get a very long reply. The better question would have been " What can you see that is standard on this bike?" The answer would be much shorter.

Re: Wandering Tyre

Shane, James still being riden in Qld with very suspect rider. Yearly events are Qld Titles, CQTC event, Twinshock & Classic Masters and an HMCCQ practice day. No self tappers in rear rim. Your last explanation about alloy rim spoked to James hub explains my fun with rear tyres over the years. T...

Re: Basket Cases

Greg, I am not sure how you define "foreign to Yamaha" but the handlebars don't look genuine Yamaha - particularly the blue one. The genuine Yamaha handlebars are chrome steel but those look like they are aluminium. Also the rear shocks are not genuine Yamaha - more like Mulhollands. They ...

Re: Is anyone else having trouble staying logged in!

Thanks to whoever solved the problem as mine is working normally again. There had been a Windows upgrade in the meantime but could all be coincidence. All is well with my world again. Thanks.

Re: Changing Gears

There is a fix for the Beta clutches but it takes about 5 hours of detailed painstaking manual work with primitive tools. The two main issues seem to be the excess amount of glue used to bond the fibre to the clutch plates and the roughness of the tags that engage the clutch basket fingers. So the e...

Re: Old habits die hard

It is all a bit individual. If you are used to using a certain finger combination, then that is right for you. Keep using what you are used to. I was once the Australian coach for a visiting US Motocross guru who had won a World Round in the 70's - Jim Pomeroy. During his coaching, he explained how ...
