The best known ones and they have all the gear is Johnston’s at Smithfield. A mate used them with no dramas but they were not cheap.

Taubmans SOLPAH paving paint, although it comes up as in NZ.Wattyl own Taubmans and also White Knight , all have paving paint and more than likely the same recipe.This stuff would be cheaper than the heavy wear paints.

50 per cent acetone and auto transmission fluid as a penetrate or diesel, my favourite and cheap.

To clean the carbon try some of that spray on foaming  alloy wheel cleaner, it easily moves baked on brake dust but I would watch it though.
Wanted to buy a CZ back in the day, $1000 in a crate with spare wheels and engine parts plus plus.
Father put a stop to that big time.

Yamaha / Yamaha is daddy racer sticker.
« on: April 24, 2018, 09:11:38 PM »
Argument between my mates, back in the day there were stickers, YAMAHA IS DADDY RACER.
They were a reflective silver colour and black print . This was during the days of us running our DT 400 D and E models.
I say yes some say no , google is no help.
True or false, and I would love a picture of one.
Thanks.

Not VMX but, this fellow has passed away yesterday, and a former road racer with a special ability.
Years ago he suffered the loss of an arm and a leg in a bike accident , that didn’t stop him from racing.

He competed and got permission of a special number 1/2, or half. Was going to Le Mans and the TT this year.  A talented man.
Check out his page on Facebook.
Vale.

Went to a job once at a Shell Servo where a truck had knocked down a high voltage pole on P Hills Rd. The bare 11kv wiring fell onto 415, then into the Servo, two of the three meters blown off the board.
The driveway was built over sloping ground, Voltage then got into the copper water and compressed air piping.

What was also underneath were all the fuel tanks, copper piping  was non existent, had sprayed itself over the 3 inch gal fill pipes. Luckily didn’t go bang!!!
Total rewrite of the buildings,new  pumps etc, etc.

Good luck with your tv , etc.

Any old low capacity 2-3.5 kva generator is ok to run a house fridge and a freezer generally. Get one started , let it settle for a while then get the other one on line. If you want to boil a jug then unplug the fridges etc. Average jug is around 1700 watts plus.

Dirty power and non stable frequency ( plus / minus 50 Hz ) will stuff a modern tv or computer.Buy a UPS from an electronics joint say Jaycar about 500 va or watts . This will accept the dirty power clean it up to run sensitive gear.Do not plug in any fridges or jugs , not enough capacity .

They contain a 12 volt dc battery , rectifier charger and inverter to output 240 v ac.
You will need this to run your phone via the NBN setup when it arrives as no 240 , no phone.

The three amigos. Bultaco Metralla , most common. Then the Montesa Rapita, much less made and lastly Ossa Wildfire , even less. Think the Montesa even had auto oil injection.

General Discussion / Re: Dual Cab Ute
« on: July 24, 2017, 09:05:19 PM »
Most of the Jap extra cab and dual cable are not legal past a tray length of 60% of the wheelbase. Our BT50 freestyle trays are 2100 long, my Navara dual cab tray was 2000 long . My new BT50 dual cab with a tub is 1500 long, about 1950 diagonal. Hearing reports of blokes being booked for rear tailgate down , therefore obscured number plate, depends on the Cop I suppose.

The Hilux with ramp / frame arrangement could be made to suit a dual cab I reckon, pull it out after use .
Had a F250 Supercab, could carry 5, 2450 inside the tub and once I loaded 300 lengths of 2400 cable tray.They are a ute!!! Saw one a few years ago with a tub and a platform level with cab height , two enduro bikes sitting up there, Lord knows how he got them up or down.

General Discussion / ASBESTOS and imported bikes.
« on: June 30, 2017, 08:22:03 PM »
A mate has told me of the latest vehicle import rules, both bikes and cars. So cars are being checked for gaskets, brakes, underbody rust/ noise coatings and even the sealant used on windscreens.One bloke has scrapped a car that got through , it was the only way out.The fine is three times the cost of the car or bike -- OR $180,000 , whatever is greater for an individual. A business could be up for $900,000. It can be done with samples being tested by NATA registered labs etc in AUST, but time and money kicks in. I reckon it is too much of a risk and I have imported a bike a few years back from the USA.

I cheated on one I did. Put a 4 inch hose clamp around speedo and filed the underside of the crimped chrome retaining ring. The clamp prevented file marks.Cleaned inside then silicone on the chrome retaining ring , all good.

There are a few tent cities. One at Quarterbrige on the Douglas footy club pitch, cross the road to Macca's for breakfast and into the nearby pub on the edge of the track for spectating.
You can catch a train to the mountain to watch the racing also. Ask someone, hope the weather is good . No JOHN Mcguiness he fell at the NW 200 , broken leg, 3 ribs, and 4 vertebrae.

It is possible to listen to the races in AUST via Manx radio, about 9 hr time difference so late evening here.
