I thought it was September? Is this the private own track or park?

The cost of MA one day license does not help, for their own reasons many riders don't race because of that.

I'm sure it will be a cracker event. The park ticks the boxes for good infrastructure and plenty of good tracks to choose from , given the date should not be hot and dusty. The events I have ridden there in the past have all be good well run events. I am booked in and looking forward it. 

If they have split over money ( and I hope that's not correct ) The Sunshine club do run a great event but they may underestimate the countless hours of the behind the scenes promotion that VMX mag does that makes it so successful. Just because they build it does not mean they will come.

  I think Slackwell has missed the point.

  peely- 14 is asking if the the Bing parts from Enduro Klassiker are Bing OEM. YES.
  Main jets are not very expensive . About $10.00 AUD. Unless you buy them from a KTM Dealer.
   Hardly worth the trouble drilling and rethreading Holley ones.

   Pilot Jets are Expensive $20.00- $30.00. Because they are more processes  to make them.

   Would only drill jets if trying to run Methanol.

   Bing Needles and Needle Jets are not that expensive but Slides and Float Neddles are.

   They are the two most inportant parts in a Bing carb or any other Carburetor.

   As for Bing carb parts from Rotax ultra lite Engines. Its worth a try but remeamber that the Bing carbs on Aircraft use totaly different Jetting to motorcycle Engines. LEANER.   Even the Slides are Different.   


Holly jets can be purchased cheaply and easy if you don't have enough mechanical skill to convert a 5mm thread to 1/4 imperial then don't jet your own carby. This does only cure the main jet problem thou. Any body who knows there Bings knows the secret lies with the slide cutterway. 

Like everyone says: More races at Green Park, Connondale, QLD.
I would say the grass track that Armidale MC uses is better than Connondale for vintage bikes and it's in NSW where Heaven events are held.

I still race now and then but I don't attend many Heaven events for what ever reason's. Speaking of tracks Armidale MC has access to one of the best natural tracks I have ridden , sadly only modern classes but if you could hold an event there it would be a cracker. Lots of camping not much else.

Been a bit slack with progress , but now the pipe is done I can see the finish , longer days and a warm shed will help.

This guy has some

Might be best to talk to Trevor or Weste at surfside motorcycles at Brookvale to see if they get one from the owner.
