For Sale / Suzuki RM250/370/400c plastics
« on: April 11, 2018, 12:42:19 PM »
DC plastics in very good condition. Front guard, rear guard and side covers. On My RM400c but fits other models.
I can send pics to your phone...price negotiable. Or may swap for other plastics of interest.

Kawasaki / Re: Kawasaki KE100 compliance??

This bike isn't that old (94 model). Pre 74 there was no compliance plates..Yeah I was just wondering in General if they had ADR compliance. Some bikes had a sticker instead of a plate. Some Ag bikes sold in aus have all the road gear but no ADR compliance. For example there is a complied and non complied CT200.

Kawasaki / Kawasaki KE100 compliance??

Im leaning towards no, but can anyone confirm if the little 80s/90s KE100 had compliance? I have one here with all the lights, speedo, switch blocks etc.etc..
It does have a sticker with build date etc.. but its not a plate as such.

You guy's are right  :-)

I think there is still hope for the Victorian vmx scene.  Sure the Broadford mx track has been worn down to the bones from all the years of use, I think most Vic vmx riders know that and that's one reason why they don't ride out there,  although I think Viper had a great turn-out at a recent race meeting there?

Good turn-outs for Classic Dirt & VMX Expo in other states; which is in the same vein as the Bonanza, I guess the main difference a nice flowing grass-track verses 'one-line, mud, dust, mud' track at Broadford?

I reckon the rally-cross track, over where the supercross track was, should be graded with a few crests so old riders & bikes can get some gentle air.  If a grader can get around it then so can a water-truck (and old riders ;-) ).  A water-truck is the only real answer for motocross tracks; it gives constant coverage with the labour of only 1 person.

I will talk again to Rob Mestrom to see if we can organize a 'steering Committee' to offer constructive ideas.
a proper VMX friendly track out there would be amazing

Back in the day everyone fitted a couple of steam pipe ilo shocks for lap racing and speedway stock bike racing.  not hard to get used to, and no plunging about at the rear, even on rough tracks.
what are ilo shocks?

Im only 36 and Im too lazy to ride that track on a old bike, can only imagine what it feels like at 50+...haha.
Dont quote me I havent done any statistical analysis, I just mean the line up on the grid for pre 95 is large compared to some of the earlier classes.

Its not just Bonanza and the track, its vintage MX in general. The biggest class at the moment in victoria is pre 95.
That track is hard work and all the older generation are moving into something a bit easier on the body..vinduro or dirt track etc..
 its as simple as that

Tech Talk / Mikuni metric threads??
« on: March 28, 2018, 09:48:31 AM »
So Im drilling and taping a old mikuni round slide to accommodate a idle/slide stop screw. Im getting 6 x .75mm thread for the mikuni screw that I will be using. Can anyone confirm the size or at least confirm that the threads used in Mikuni carbs are metric??...Thanks!

« on: March 22, 2018, 09:14:56 AM »
haha..maybe ill scrap the TS idea. Thanks mate, yeah  think the 125c tank would (almost) be a bolt on. I just want to trim her down a bit and it would be nice to have a alloy then I can paint it !

Iv got a 78 RM400c plastic tank model. I want to retrofit a early alloy or steel tank, 125c? Has anyone got any ideas if it is a similar fit? Iv also heard a cheaper option is a TS tank?  8)

Yeah agree with both of you,  I can get a cheap $100 set that will get me out of trouble..hell they might even be half decent.
I have a old Kenda that will work but ill eventually get a X11.. ;D

Vintage Track / Solid rear stuts for dirt track?
« on: March 17, 2018, 02:12:16 PM »
So Iv picked up a new twin shock toy (RM400), the rear shocks need rebuilding and I wont have a chance to get them done before broadford bonanza. Instead of bouncing around I was thinking of just fitting some solid struts instead of rear springs, whats peoples thoughts??
secondly whats the best 18'' rear trye for going around in circles? Iv got a old kenda but it not great.
