Be easiest to just send it off to a graphics shop and have them do you up a new one.

Brakes ?
According to MA you don't need them.
Below is an official response I got from MA regarding a brake rule question.

Thanks for your email; and for your patience whilst I passed on the enquiry to both the Classic MX and MX/SX Commission for comment. Both have confirmed that your brake system is suitable. For the MX Commission it simply needs to be a brake that “works” i.e. slows down that rear wheel to assist with stopping.
The Classic MX Commission do not require you to have brakes at all (as per the GCR’s) however should your machine be deemed “unsafe” on the track, the Clerk of the Course has the right to remove it. You would not be deemed unsafe on this machine as it has been presented.
Hopefully this answers your questions, if you need anything further please let me know. Best of luck with racing!
Kind regards,

that big home made slide hammer looks the go but ive found for really rusted in s/arm bolts a month soaking with wd40 is the way.
Pulling it out also prevents spreading/bending the end when you try and push through from the nut side...

Just got a grinder onto one a few days ago.
This looks like another option

I give the x30's the big thumbs up, out do their Dunlop and Michelin equivalent easily.....but they are the hardest tyre to change Ive ever came across, once they are on, they are on.


I just find the pic I want on Photobucket
Click on the IMG link on the bottom right of pic,
It should say "Copied"
then go to your post and right click on "paste"
The code will come up.

You could try Ross at Tairo Motorcycle wreckers. Was there the other day and he literally has hundreds and hundreds of manuals.

We had Mercury out of a thermometer as kids - used to roll it around in our hands.
Maybe thats why I can’t spell - brain damage.
I was going to say the same thing, we had mercury in jars at school, used to get it out and roll around the table during science...

I run R40 for all of it. I change the oils after every race meeting.
It's the only oil I have found that will stand the heat. (not wishing to start another oil debate !)

is that castrol castor oil ?
i used it in my weslake 500 speedway. it can "pit" engine internals if sitting for time.

All the castor oils are hydroscopic, R30 (The 2 stroke oil) is quite bad for it.
