I used 2002 Yamaha YZ250 clutch plates in a 1986 GS500, may be the same as your 250? You're a touch out of luck, I have an '84 250 here which is getting parted out & I only sold the complete clutch assy last week.

140 or so photos on Facebook (Victorian Classic management) from a meeting they had at the same track as where the nats are being held, on the weekend. The weather was ordinary but everyone interested should take a look.

Entries for this event are coming in exceptionally slow, so much so the event is in jeopardy of not going forward. If you intend to compete at this event get your entry in now, don't wait.

Just get it done Ken, no matter how long the recovery is. Mine for the new hips was quick (6 weeks) & 18 months on they just keep getting better. I'm back to full strength/power & feel like I'm 20 again. You'll be kicking yourself for waiting.

There will be races within races Barry. It's a 40 gate start & some races will be combined but scored separately. Graeme is a very experienced operator, I'm sure he's done the numbers & will ensure a good event. All we have to worry about is getting there & having some fun.

Tech Talk / Re: what am I doing wrong 74 kx250

If you don't like Wiseco, use an Elsinore 250 piston (used them in '74 KX a few times), of which there are other brand options.

I believe the track will be adjusted appropriately to suit the VMX classes. The early word was to bypass ( with grass chicane sections) the 3 big table top jumps for classes up to pre'75 but have pre'78 & Evolution use all jumps, I'm unsure if or how this has changed since the first track inspection. Having said that, the track is very similar to Port Pirie track which was used for the classics last year, where the whole track & all jumps were used for all classes. There were no complaints that I know of & everyone seemed to have a whole bunch of fun. VCM is planning some sort of event at the track as a prelude to the National title event, so there will be an opportunity to get first hand experience before the titles. Some people hate flat paddocks while others hate jumps, impossible to please everyone or probably anyone these days. At the end of the day we all have to ride the same track plus mother nature has the potential to turn the best laid out/prepared track to the worst in an instant. In all reality it will be your mind that defeats you long before any actual track does.

Kawasaki / Re: Hey you old green blood barstards

Not uncommon in any brand. Get it rolling, ride it & pull the clutch at speed. That usually does the trick  to free them up.

What more do you need to know? It's all go, championship classes as per the MoMS with the finer details being organised. Book your spot on the boat.

Filler in the centre is 1976, off to the side (as yours is) is 1977.

No apologies required, his 500 may have one in it but it's not standard issue for 500's. I don't reckon it would work that well in  VM40 or VM44 though, they generally require 7 series needles.

6DH20 is not a Husky 500 needle (7DH3). It is however used in some CR/WR125's & CR/XC250's. I don't have the specs but last time I checked one against the common Husky 6DH3 needle, it was longer by an obvious amount. I used one in a CR430 which would normally use a 6DH3 & it seemed to clean up the bottom & mid.

Competition / Use of leaded fuel
« on: May 04, 2018, 11:26:32 AM »
With the phasing out of leaded fuel in competition looming in 2019, here's a short survey in an attempt to gauge numbers of those who still use it in competition (classic MX/DT). Results will be forwarded to MA for consideration. There is a deadline, so please ask as many as possible who feel it's relevant to them to respond. In addition, should any CMX/DT club wish to contribute please feel free to contact me at dirt.bike@bigpond.com.
Cheers,
Mick Hughes (BigK)
