Tech Talk / WP 4681 shock specs.
« on: September 28, 2016, 01:04:03 PM »
Anyone got a link to rebuild specs fro a wp 4681 shock.
Just had one rebuilt at a dealer and it feels like a pogo stick, zero damping. They say they can't find any specs on the shock, so have just guessed settings (oil weight, volume, air pressure etc).
Bugger!!

Suzuki / RM 250 A,B or C?
« on: September 25, 2016, 08:15:46 PM »
Whats the visual difference between the rm 250 A,B and C?
Looking at one at the moment, seller says 1978 "C" , numbers say "A"
Google brings up the same bikes regardless of A, B or C search.

Tech Talk / Crank bearing.
« on: September 13, 2016, 08:14:11 PM »
Currently chasing some bits for a Rotax 406 rebuild and have come across the crank bearings at $80 each for genuine !!!
the size is available at the local bearing shop for less than half the price, but the sales guy warned me that they may not be suitable for a two stroke crank application.
They are c3, 30x72x19, Des anyone know of other manufacturer that runs the same size crank bearings?
Thanks in advance.

General Discussion / What's going on ?
« on: April 26, 2016, 08:42:08 PM »
I've been watching the price of VMX bikes skyrocket recently, with even broken down dungers seeking $2 and $3k prices.
It's cheaper to buy and rebuild a 3 yr old 450 and go race moderns. Are people really prepared to pay up to $12k for over restored bikes or are the sellers just kidding themselves?

General Discussion / Here we go again ????
« on: January 27, 2016, 07:14:42 PM »
One for the officials out there.....I know you love this siht so....

G.C.R 12.25.6.1 "Efficient brakes are to be fitted to the front and rear wheel"

Bike is an ATK 406 with the rear brake on the front sprocket shaft,
Does this , or doesn't this comply with the rules and will I be able to race it?
Yes I have already sent a email to MA requesting an official response, but it would be interesting to see what scrutineers, CoC's and stewards think it means.

Tech Talk / Nickel plating
« on: December 31, 2015, 02:21:00 PM »
You mob,
I have a nickel plated frame with lots of what looks like surface rust.
Is this rust forming under the plating or just surface rust.
Is it an easy job to replate, ( read cheap), or can it be painted over?
