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.

Re: Grades?

Hi Yamfan, was it an extra grade or just explaining for people to understand the new grade names compared to the old ones? As in trial 4 is C grade. I think the number system was because it seems trials in Australia is a kin to the railway system. Every state needs to reinvent the wheel and have it'...

Re: New to Trials Brisbane Northside

If you have a welder and some scrap steel available, I just made my footpeg extensions myself. A bit of flat bar welded onto the original peg and grind the serrations in - viola.

Re: Lanyard Wiring - 2007 Sherco

Hi Ben, mine is a 2002 290 and I didn't buy a harness or cut and splice the old harness. I took the switch block off and took it to my bike shop, an auto electrical place can help too. But I got the same plug that is on the Sherco switch block and a couple of terminals to suit. Once you check your S...

Wind the engine slowly over to find TDC on compression stroke. Ease the piston a bees whatsit (technical t...

Re: Basket Cases

Looking good. It's great that you are retaining as much patina as practical. I also like the neat way you protected the swingarm pivot internals and steering head internals for the blast and paint. Actually David, I am not going to be keeping the aged patina on the refurbished bike. It's going to l...

Re: Basket Cases

I forgot to put this photo in my last post. The rechromed forks tubes look awesome. I miss the patina of the original as found condition, but these won't eat fork seals anymore. Work done by Rad hard chrome in Brisbane

Re: Basket Cases

Chippy asked and a couple of other guys may be interested in how I'm going with my s l o w TY rebuild. It actually started off as 2 bikes bought as spare parts for my perfect patina twinshocker. I've had the frame blasted and painted locally. Most of the alloy parts are being blasted at the moment. ...
