For Sale / old shocks - surplus to requirements
« on: August 28, 2018, 08:47:03 AM »
been carting these around since the 1980's  1 pair of early koni style shocks, rusted shafts, no oil, springs have yellow and purple codes on them. they are not Koni's but i think they were S&W's of a mates ts 125.

2nd pair are red (whoo hoo ) ~15" long with black springs, much bigger that the koni style in better condit but will need full reco. i suspect they were on a red tank xl 350 i bought and the arse was 6 feet in the air so i swapped them out for something suitable... it had a 420 kit and... never mind

dan murphys card for a 6 pack of stellasand postage for the lot. (with the price and quality of shocks you can buy, its only a period correct issue that anyone would want these)

let me know if you want pics, i cant get them up on here. in central vic

cheers

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...
