Is that a water crossing I see? Maybe a bit more waterproofing required ?  ;D

No , he didn't cut any trees down he was just scared some of the branches away so they don't poke any eyes out    8)

I have 1987 CR125 airbox assy if that is any good to you ?

Talking to Dennis & Greg tonight , the track is looking fantastic.
We are going over Friday , so might be able to add a few more sections into loop.
Anyone looking for a ride just turn up on Saturday to enter & ride.
The weather is perfect for vinduros. See you there.
Cheers Woodsy

The swing arm is off 2000 XR 600r disc brake model which has alloy linkages. Had to machine outside of steel stepped  bushes on pivot down to about 2mm then grind inner hardened sleeve to a few  thou wider than finished pivot.
Loosened rear eng mount bolts & jack frame apart to slide in. One of the eng mount bolts is spaced with a washer.
Could not use outer seals so fitted large 'O' rings & keep it well greased.
Ground off brake caliper mounts then had a mate fabricate and Tig a lug to locate original rear wheel with a wider spacer on left side.
Used the XR 600 alloy  lower link as it fits 82 Xr 200 frame. Had to cut ends off then fabricate new link to be 13mm offset & 98mm long. Make sure grease nipple orientation is correct.
Used original 200 shock which fits 600 linkages perfectly.
 Didn't have to cut or modify frame to fit.
I will be at Bulahdelah Vinduro if anyone wants to check it out.
Cheers Woodsy

I've got an XR 600 alloy swingarm on mine as well as 87 CR 125 forks.
Made the bike a lot more stable in the rough stuff & still good in the tight going.Great for vinduros.
As always,it's limited by rider skill & fitness. ;D

Getting plenty of rain out this way. 100mm at Parkes this week & still raining.
I hope the pits don't get as wet as last time we were there.
Don't care because the track was brilliant.
Can't wait. 8)

1987 CR 125 triple clamps fit straight into 1982 XR 200r with only a 16 mm alloy spacer between top bearing & upper triple.

Is 89 CR 250 any good for you ?

Thanks.By the weather forecast may be a shower on Friday so will keep a check on things.
 There were quite a few 4x4s at Canowindra that were having a wee bit of trouble going anywhere ? ;D

Not worried about my 1 wheel drive bike but after all the rain how will the property road & camping area hold up for next weekend ?
Are they 2 wheel drive suitable or would a 4 wheel drive be good insurance ?

Was 1 of the most enjoyable loops ever. The weather made for wet loam but still plenty of grip except for a couple of spots. But not so many ruts and plenty of flowing trails. As usual another great job from VTR.
