Bike Talk / kato wiring
« on: October 02, 2017, 08:33:10 PM »
hoping for a little assistance. got a 2010 kato 300 exc and looking to rereg it..ive had it ffrom new so i have all the bits. tailight and brake lights are not working neither is the headlight (the blue high beam indicator still comes on.

headlight is probably globe and easy to test but the tailight is a 1 peice unit (no replaceable globe) and is 140 bucks!!

the battery is still the original unit been sitting for 18 months flat as...probably should replace it...would this kill all the lights?

i might put the charger on it and see if it resurects enough ...everything should work, std wiring

any suggestions?

Vinduro / 10 years of Harrow, what to do!!!
« on: August 07, 2017, 11:40:28 AM »
the committee is keen for a big one nxt year so im starting early with ideas....(someone?)
actually i thought we could get Graham Jarvis over.... ::) maybe not....

seriously, what about a good ol acceleration test (with no measurement....) an excuse to flog the crap out of the bike then slam the skids on to stop in the box...prize for the best crash....

we could do a big all bikes parade through the town...

For Sale / 1985 WR 400 twin shocker pre sale note
« on: April 21, 2017, 09:56:00 AM »
Mate has a good WR 400 he is thinking of selling. he was talking about gtree and I suggested he put an expression of interest here to avoid all the "hey mate swap ya for me 85 pord palcon wiv roof racks" calls

anyone interested, he is after big coin.

its a strong motor, was purchased from husky imports after the single shockers came out and appears to have had race prepping. was on a farm for years then purchased.

Has a cr front end, new seals oils etc, recoed shockers, new cables, bearings, air filter, good C+S, tyres are new with HD tubes. Is a bit rough visually but has sticker kit, new seat cover etc to go . was raced at the pacific masters and went like a champion. Could be a concourse bike after a frame paint and tidy up.

he is away working but will be back nxt week and I will get piccy's maybe a video etc for anyone interested.

offers around 6 will be considered.

Suzuki / RM 125 M
« on: April 17, 2017, 08:44:22 AM »
probably done to death here somewhere but I have been offered an rm 125 M with the "S" hot up kit. whats the value in these bikes? are they rare?.

 its a good looking thing. a mate bought a new rm "S" back in the day and I thought it was sensational bike back then...(coming off a ts 125, anything was sensational) so im a bit keen on it but just wondering if its something special and should be kept in the pool room?

General Discussion / legal business
« on: April 04, 2017, 05:57:30 PM »
this was in the age today, a "lawyer" commenting on the potential millions he could make if negligence can be proven in the DFO plane crash.

this is whats wrong with our society...""[The case] could generate a very large lawsuit for the entity that is found to be responsible under the law of negligence for the air crash by a court," Shine Lawyers aviation department manager Thomas Janson said.

Negligence is yet to be proved in the case, as investigators continue to work through the plane's wreckage. But if it could be proved, hundreds of bystanders who saw the flight go down might be able to claim for nervous shock, Mr Janson said."

MIGHT be able to claim for nervous shock

Phhaaarrrk

he should move to Allepo, fousands of customers there....unfortunately

General Discussion / short tailed red healers NOT VMX
« on: March 04, 2017, 02:30:22 PM »
nothing to do with vmx but no 1 daughter has picked up a pair of "rescue dogs". loverly pair of short tailed healers.

issue 1. they are healers, issue 2 she lives in a small house suburban block.

they were malnourished and eat everything in site. ... garden, fence etc. she now realises "WTF was I thinking!!"

the rescue people, having palmed them off are suddenly not returning her calls...go figure.

basically good dogs that need a healers life.

any suggestions, don't want to put them down. boy has just had his castanets whipped off and the girl is to be desexed soon but its a shame as they are good dogs and would have made a good breeding pair...original owners plans until she thought asio was bugging her life and flipped right out leaving said mutts to fend for themselves.

they should be separated to allow their individual character to develop as the girl is very protective and viscous if she detects threats to boy. he is a nice friendly dog and doesn't know what the fuss is about. like most blokes...

if you know of any country folk looking for a dog project, pm me
