I've bought a few things, no problem, all for old bikes. The guy that runs bomaderry seems genuinely interested in old bikes, he came out to a historic bike rally I was at at nowra a few years ago, that's how I found out about them.

I can send you pic of the 650 unit , but I have no idea about the DT as far as engines go .
I'll have a closer look at the dt and compare the picture in your link (i saved the link). If it looks good I'll msg you and get some dimensions would be great. Thanks.

On my 998 engines I always had my own activator on right side of the engine to run a solid gear shaft. Now I am restoring my original XS 650 to original condition with push rod going through the gear shaft  .( Activator on left side of engine) I found this new activator , low cost and very effective . I use much stronger springs than standard and it still pulls easy , as well as disengaging perfectly .
Have you, anyone, an idea of how much modification would be necessary to fit this xs650 unit to dt1/2/3?

I'm  a bit of a believer in using what you've got. Until the desire to trials ride serious hits in I think the ct will be great fun for the kids. On my ct 90 the main restriction is ground clearance.

Can you cut an old tube up like a flat washer and force it over the neck of the lid so it acts like a seal between the 2, when its shut  ? jimson
I've done similar to this but found the ordinary rubber disintegrated. I bought some petrol compatible sheets im various thickness from a place in melbourne and it worked well. Makes new seals for petrol taps too.

There us a common boot makers glue I got a recommendation for that seems to be working on a carbie plastic intake. But on a metal tank exterior I've used tarzan grip and its been fine.

Thanks for that offer YSS, but I don't yet have the need, but was curious and can now file away the knowledge. I have previously wondered about it so it's good to know it can be done.

I'm interested in your lapping tool. What material is it made from ? I've pondered this my self but no amount of beer has ever got me to "the leap of faith"

While vtr has a membership limit non members can request to ride at their events if that event rider limit hasn't been filled by members. Keep an eye on the notices in the vtr post in this forum or if you use facebook request to join the vintagetrailriders facebook group, ride information when rides are 'open' get posted to both places.

I think Jim Scaysbrook did a test of a factory kitted dt1 when they first came out ???? He won a motocross (natural terrain in those days) championship from memory.
