If Matt at V! can't help, I can source one for you using my US suppliers through the shop (VMX Re-Creations). I got one for a client a few weeks ago, really nice replacement item & not worth risking another used one cracking IMO.
Cheers,

The delay is frustrating to say the least however we are doing our utmost best to make this happen at the proposed venue, unfortunately CV-19 has complicated things no end. We hope to have an answer in the next week, sit tight.

54M is 250 enduro, if you want a Cappra (250) look for 73M.

General Discussion / Re: fork emulators
« on: May 11, 2020, 08:24:56 PM »
Emulators are fantastic things but only if you are prepared to take the time to tune them, which means a morning or afternoon of actually riding the bike over the same terrain & making small adjustments as you go. This means, handlebars & fork caps off, springs out, reach in grab the emulators, make the adjustment & go again. They are highly tuneable & come with a selection of springs & valve plates (at least Racetech units do). I've spoken to many who have been disappointed with fitting emulators & all say the same, they've never bothered to  tune them & they "should just work".
Yes, they will work well for your application if you take the time to tune them, if you're not that way inclined, probably best to not spend the money on them.

Competition / Re: 2020 Classic Nats

Yes Ted, as I said on FB, the event has been postponed. We (CMX commission) are working with the club towards a date later in the year & as soon as it is decided a notification will be forthcoming. What we should be asking is who & how many are likely to support the event given the uncertain times we are in?
Cheers,

Don't bother with the "band aid" fixes, you'll just be working for no result. Spending $200 on the correct rate springs will go a long way to getting you sorted but if you want it really good, then buy some emulators as well (another $300 or thereabouts).

If you actually read the promotion blurb, it states huge camping area.  I have confirmed that camping is free of charge.

Competition / Re: 2020 Australian 3 Day Vintage Enduro (A3VE)
« on: January 28, 2020, 06:50:11 AM »
Probably a good idea to release any changes to the competition classes now. People will be busy preparing bikes under the current format (I was told by PD that everything was the same as last year) & need to know ASAP if the changes will affect them.

eBay Finds / Re: Is this a 'works' basket for '78 Hon CR250?
« on: January 08, 2020, 07:06:25 AM »
Standard components there. Hard to tell condition from the photos (they are prone to wear problems even though the basket is steel), but they probably do "work".

General Discussion / Re: VMX 2020 rules
« on: January 06, 2020, 07:20:42 AM »
Yes, there has been some changes to the rules for 2020, you'll find the MoMS at www.ma.org.au Your mate should read the GCR's & all of chapter 11 at a minimum. He should also contact the local club he intends to ride with to check their rules as well.
