G'day viewers, I'm about to rebuild some forks, and was wondering how everyone else takes the old seals out ? They are Yamaha dt1 250 forks. Thanks in advance. jimson

This company is from the UK but has a branch in Bomaderry NSW Australia. I've purchased a few things over the last 2 years or so, they have been great. I went in on Tuesday arvo and bought fork seals and a front brake cable for an early model DT1 250 and they had them in stock. No hassles about the age of the bike or anything like that. jimson

Yamaha / DT400 The last of the twin shock model
« on: April 11, 2019, 04:08:20 PM »
G'day viewers, I have enough parts laying around the shed to build a DT400. It would fit into the last model for twin shocks. My question is, are they any good for a bit of vinduro or bush riding. It won't be standard as it'll be built with mostly what I have here. Thanks jimson

Well I don't live in Darwin or up North. I live on the South Coast of NSW and the humidity doesn't normally stick around for this long and the fact I don't live in a A/C house or drive a car with A/C and my work place doesn't have A/C so I suppose its just not my cuppa tea lol jimson

Thanks for your input, I'll be doing it every 7000 klms I think. It'll be interesting to see how long it takes me, to put that on the clock. jimson

I've only used the alloy pipe on the lid. The opening on the fuel tank, is just from carefully removing the old locking cap. jimson

So I've taken the Triumph in for its first service 800 klms and I noticed in the book, its not due for another service until it has 16000 klms on it. I asked at the bike Shop and they said yeah, Triumph has faith in there engines. Thats a lot of Ks without an oil change ? jimson

From memory I bought the alloy pipe pretty much the right size, cut it to length  and put it in the lathe to make a channel so a O ring could fit, but it was to tight. If you look at one of the pics theres an O ring at the top of the pipe it seats really well in when the cap is pushed on & turned. jimson
