Re: Day Out.

With a chain, the pitch is the same no matter what letters come after it. A 428h and a 428SROZ chain both have the same pitch. This is determined by the (4) as a 1/2 inch pitch. However, the following numbers and letters explain the make up of the chain. The width and 'o' or 'x' ring for example. I ...

Re: prevention of stolen bikes

If you have a roller door on your shed, drill a hole in the slide track about 1 meter off the floor. Place a padlock in the door rib so that as the p*&^% stealing your pride and joy has to lift it each rib of the door over it. It may slow them or even deter them. A mate used to have a couple of ...

prevention of stolen bikes

Hi all, I was just reading that some low life has made off with another, well 2 more trials bikes. It had me thinking a little, in the world of registered vehicles you need to provide an engine number frame number to help identify the bike. This can be cross referenced in the computer database and f...

2015 Queensland Trials dates

I was unsure where to put this one, forgive me if I misplaced it. Where are the dates for the 2015 meets? There are 2 different events dates pages on Trials Australia, neither of them have the full year on them. The state event calendar has nothing at all in it, and the other one only has the enduro...

Re: TY175 trials tyres

I went the scaredy cat safe option. I have Michelin MX - 11 on both the front and rear of my Sherco. I kinda know how they perform and that they are great for traction, so I went with them. I have found the odd bit of negative info on the other tyres and am not keen on spending almost the same amoun...

Re: TY 175 Lower frame mounts

Thanks Paulo, and to David Lahey too. That is exactly the mount and story I had heard somewhere before and the photo in the other forum is super clear too. I understand a better footpeg for trail riding when I sit on it and ride, the whole thing feels like a kids bike in it's size. I wonder were the...

TY 175 Lower frame mounts

Hi all, maybe just a silly little newbie question. Can anyone tell me what the splined mounts on the lower part of a TY175 frame are for? I was told that it was for an optional footpeg arrangement for the TY250 and that Yamaha put the same mounts onto the TY175. I was also told that it was basically...

TY175 trials tyres

Has anyone used Pirelli MT 43 trials tyres on a TY175? I have found some people have had problems with tubeless tyres on tube type rims with the bead popping off. I need to put new tyres on my TY to be able to ride it at trials meetings. I am not sure if I should use the cheaper Pirelli MT 43 or the...

Re: 2t Sherco exhaust

Hi Ian, did you find something to clear out your pipe?
