I give the x30's the big thumbs up, out do their Dunlop and Michelin equivalent easily.....but they are the hardest tyre to change Ive ever came across, once they are on, they are on.


I just find the pic I want on Photobucket
Click on the IMG link on the bottom right of pic,
It should say "Copied"
then go to your post and right click on "paste"
The code will come up.
Once you post here the picture automatically comes up.

You could try Ross at Tairo Motorcycle wreckers. Was there the other day and he literally has hundreds and hundreds of manuals.

We had Mercury out of a thermometer as kids - used to roll it around in our hands.
Maybe thats why I can’t spell - brain damage.
I was going to say the same thing, we had mercury in jars at school, used to get it out and roll around the table during science...

I run R40 for all of it. I change the oils after every race meeting.
It's the only oil I have found that will stand the heat. (not wishing to start another oil debate !)

is that castrol castor oil ?
i used it in my weslake 500 speedway. it can "pit" engine internals if sitting for time.

All the castor oils are hydroscopic, R30 (The 2 stroke oil) is quite bad for it.

Don't go second hand route, if you've got to split it, do it proper....even if it takes a little longer.

When you did the carb swap from the 76, Did you bring across the slide/needle as well or just the carb body and used the 74 slide/needle?

Whats the best way to determine your current spring rate? Somewhere between 7.8 to 9.7 kg/mm.

Not worth fixing........I'll take it off your hands, save you the heart ache.
Seriously, they have an interesting fork set up, there is a damper rod thats attached to the fork cap that slides up into a bush in the fork leg, hard to explian you'll know when you see it. If you decide to not go ahead, I'd like first refusal, got a 406 that needs a little brother.
