I also agree, that MX track will never pull vintage numbers. Thats all there is to it. But if a vintage friendly track was better set up and prepared numbers would pick up. I think you would need some dedicated vmxers to be involed in that process.

Vinduro / Re: Australian 3 Day Vintage Enduro- event notes...
« on: June 03, 2019, 12:37:19 PM »
This event was very achievable for your average VTR or VERI punter. Tracks were easy and the times very loose plus there is a rally class if you dont wish to race. its just like a normal vinduro meet 3 days in a row!..yaaahhh



whole different level of commit to do the competition c/w a vinduro but thats the main issue for people and i get it, its hard to get an ol bike to handle 3 days of tough riding let alone an old body! its the main reason vinduros are so popular, no pressure, no cares, no major effort and low cost. just go riding...get a flat? go back and have a break, maybe fix it!! who cares. So start the psych up and get the bike prep happening!

Doing some jetting here. So I understand the basics of the colouring but what about when you have two colours like black/sooty around the edge and very white in the middle insulator tip? Im thinking lean at WOT and rich at low rpm. Whats peoples thoughts?

Personaly it was my best Bonanza yet! heaps of road circuit time and the sunday free for all on the dirt track was a blast. I even got first hand reports on the MX track being fun (running the reverse direction to previous years). The weather was perfect all weekend and poured down Sunday night after we left.

Vintage Track / Re: XT500, de rake? Better turning?
« on: April 02, 2019, 12:41:31 PM »
How far are we talking on the fork drop? Im guna have a play this weekend.

As said earlier just move the forks in the triples, I have a 77 and it handles great on dirt track.
 Also have a couple of 77 dt's, 250 has the original fork and the 400 has the leading axle forks and are totaly different animals in the handling dep.

Im not to concerned about original look and value. I always though they look like a chopper when you put long travel on them with the standard rake.


I de raked a TT500 frame years ago 27deg it turned better but it lost it original look and value.
The Flat track TT500 bikes in the USA are all de raked 25-26deg but this isn’t mx riding .
