I spoke to Luke and he has been talking to fellow MS colleagues and it does look like everything still works as it should and there are still public/shared folders still despite what those complainers have said on links i gave above. I even got the special link from Luke that allowed me to create a second/new public folder but to date i have not been able to find anything in the user settings to allow me to manually add another public folder if i want.

Try this-

Ok so in Your One Drive, you should have a folder called PUBLIC. Make sure all your photos are inside that folder ONLY. I think you can set other folders to 'shared' but no one can get direct access to the files within that folder with just the address of the file. They need the link to the folder i think?? So its best to keep photos you want to put on forum in the public folder only as that has special settings that allow its contents to be seen with just the link to the files within. You can have sub folders within that folder, that still works.

When you upload the photo to that folder, open the photo.
Up the top you should see-

SHARE-ADD TO ALBUM-PLAY SLIDE SHOW-ROTATE-OFFICE LENS - and then another drop down menu that has a number of options including VIEW ORIGINAL

it may look a bit different depending on how you screen/browser is set up and what zoom level you are on but thats how it is for me. Just look for VIEW ORIGINAL across the top menu somewhere.

click on VIEW ORIGINAL and the photo will open up full size in a new window.
Then highlight and COPY the address of the photo displayed in your browsers (eg Firefox/Chrome) address bar in that new window and then go back to the form and PASTE that address inside the [IMG] tags.

I can help you more if needed when i can do screen shots but i cant right now.

You need to make sure you highlight and copy the full address and don't leave the last little bits off otherwise it wont display.

If only you can see the photos on forum that means you have either not got the photos in the PUBLIC folder or you have not activated the folder to be shared yet. I am not exactly sure if the public folder still needs to be toggled on to 'shared'

When you are in the public folder, at the top RH corner there is a information (I) icon. Click on it.

it will have details about the folder and its contents.
make sure under the section HAS ACCESS that has 3 icons (add people- links giving access-everyone)

the key point there is the EVERYONE icon. You wont see that in any other folders but the public folder.
If you click on MANAGE ACCESS, it should say EVERYONE - CAN VIEW

See how you you. Once its all set up and you have used it a bit it will become easy/straight forward.

FAT-TOY mine is all free. No cost at all. Had the same account since 2000. The free account gives you 5gb free and i am no where near using all that yet. It says i have used 262mb of 5gb. If you do use up the 5Gb then you can buy more. Or just create a new free 5gb account :)

One thing you do need to do is make sure the folders that have photos you want to post on here, have their viewing permissions set to public/shared.

Make sure you read this too

So now i am not 100% sure if this will work for new users now? Where is MS man Lukeb1961??

Some KLR600 also had electric start. Also XL600 around 86/87 had electric start too.

Ok i am in Chrome now and many of your photos are showing up but a few were not, eg the one directly under this
I started the build by getting the forks rechromed and the frame powder coated.  The fork bottoms and triple clamps were then polished and the forks rebuilt.

but i expect it will show in Firefox. I am guessing that your have posted some slightly different?

Just viewed this thread in Firefox and all pics show for me. Its just  a few that dont show in Chrome but i am fine with that.

92/93 is the last of the old TT600's that still looked like the original 83 models. I dont think the the Belgarda  electric and non electric start engines fit those older frames. I know someone who tried yrs ago. He had a Belgarda motor and wanted to put it in an 80's frame.

What probably would work is putting the electric start Belgarda motor in the non electric start Belgarda chassis that has the better Ohlins/Paoli? suspension.

Electric start came on 86 Yamaha XT600Z Tenere (1VJ)

I can only see Pokeys pic when i am using Firefox with a plug in.

all the other photos in the opening post eg

dont appear to be inserted in the image tags. That may be the problem

click the image icon below the B (BOLD) button and try inserting the above address inbetween the tags

so like this

well thats was good it just leaves a blank for me. >:( Pokey has exlained it though and shown the IMG tags.
Photos bucket is way too hard these days. Theres better options i am sure. I say ditch it and use something else easier/less restrictive.

I was wondering this thread would be better in the CZ section and not 'general section'

maybe mods can shift it there?

I think the ones i mentioned are no harder than  Photobucket. They all require upload the photo from your desktop to a designated folder.  When its upload, you go to the folder, click on image/open it up and then copy and the link address to the photo, come back to ozvmx and paste it in between the IMG tags. Simple. Some sites you can also right click on the photo and 'copy link address' and then paste that too instead of copying the address from the web browsers address bar.

I have found that i can not see most photobucket hosted photos by other people on forums unless i am using Firefox.

This might work?

or just create a free Hotmail/Outlook/One Drive email account and that instantly gives you your own free photo/file storage

I found out these are XR forks after all. Previous owner must of upgraded to them. I found out when looking at the drawings of the sliders on CMS, plus they just seemed too long/too much travel to be XL forks.

I pulled one apart to measure in MM

slider from axle hole to top - 355
exposed chrome (from top edge of slider) fully extended - 581-582
exposed chrome (from top edge of slider)  when fully bottomed - 333-334

total length of fork extended (axle to top of inner) - 936 - 937
travel in mm - 247-249
travel in inches - 9.724 - 9.803

damper rod length from under the piston/head to base is 305mm
total tip to tip length of chrome inner rube is 752mm

Fork caps have ugly external damage but i got some DG caps that fit these forks.

Can anyone here provide exact free length dimensions +/- 1mm of the D or E negative and rebound springs and for those that have removed the stock negative/rebound springs, would you be willing to sell them?
