mercury is fine as long as it isnt exposed to air...always keep it under water or oil. once exposed to air, even at room temperature it evaporates into the air you breathe quite effectively. i knew a bloke who was badly poisoned when a few kilos of Hg made its way into the solution tank of a CIL leach reactor (runs at boiling temp) and he was working in the room running the plant when he started to feel crook. it took a year or so but he came good with various treatments...still has hair as well! so its not a death sentence but not advisable under any circs.

Belzona was a similar two part weld a mate used to build up inlet runners on old red motor inlet ports when converting to 12 ports

rapid fix 2 part supa glue. it is a supa glue and a "powder" addition for strength where needed. works great

Maaaattee whats with the tyres thing...everyone who rides a bike should able to do a 5 min complete tyre change while knocking back a few cold ones..use a bit of tape on yr tyre levers and make sure the bead is in the well, SHimples... ::)

i dont rekon there would be a worse bike for whoops than an it 465...thats just my opinion. we used to play the blue team at the sea lake rally pretty well and push em into the whoops too fast and watch them go over the bars...worked every time. some thing to do with an unloading top heavy shocker and a sudden decreasing steering geometry it was explained to me once...just had to get alongside and pull the clutch and rev the engine and the red mist would hit and three bumps later it was all over... those were the days. ::)

i am on cafe husky and the same issue is popping up there. i like the husky facebook page but the main man is overkeen and im starting to get sick of the 5 posts a day that pop up a "look"message. >:(

on the + side the moto villa group found me a new set of gears :D How good is that

the cafe forum is still pretty strong with good knowledge flowing around for older hoosks.

this forum is great for all brands and thats its real appeal i rekon. Ill leave facebook for the "look what im having for lunch" set ::)

« on: June 16, 2018, 08:17:01 AM »
the ITC huskies were close to the best stock twin rear you could buy at the time and with some damping changes are pretty good. (all other bikes were single shock by then ::))
