I knew this would happen, I had one sitting on the shelf for years then I gave it away.
Anyone got one to get me out of trouble so I can do the next Vinduro.

Straight to the forum for imformation or serious questions and answers. If only it was easier to post pictures on here.
I have better luck buying and selling on facebook though. You just have to ignore the dum dums.

Tech Talk / Best value twin shock?
« on: June 15, 2018, 09:12:17 AM »
A...Is it possible to get a twin shock rear end to work ok or do you just deal with average suspension? (RM400)
B...What is the best value for money option for twin shocks price and performance in mind? I cant justify spending a thousand bucks on shocks..preferably half that would be nice. ... 8)

Arrowing was great, course was superb, weather ideal and the hamburgers spot on. Great day at Beaufort and a good turn out with a good mix of bikes. i was off my game and soon after the start clipped mr gday and sent him into the scrub :o..i backed that up by driving straight into a fallen tree in front of a few blokes and sprawling all over the place...muscled through a couple of guys on a steep hill only to get balked by the guy just near the top and speared off into the scrub :( exhaust manifold flange came loose and i had to effect trailside repairs (must have left the loctite off those ::)) had to limp into the last fuel stop with less than a litre and got lost near the end wasting valuable 2- :-[ it was one of those days... but still great fun as VERI can provide. looking forward to the next one...(where is that loctite bottle?)
Thanks for the log check!..was your camera rolling? passed me on the pipe (your bike smells great!) then id pass you cause you were rolling around in the bushes or doing Husky repairs...haha..what a awsome day!!

Curtis I have a manual but its missing pages. I can not find any ignition specs online. Could I have coil, stator, cdi etc readings? I'm now in a big panic cause the QLD evo titles are on in 3 wks.
sorry just saw me your number and I can send you pics of the pages in the book.
also I put a new carb on mine and it was sooooo much better!

Even if you did make the track more VMX friendly it now has a reputation to undo, it would take years of being a awsome track to get people back on it. Even then the people enjoying it would be relatively fit motorcross racers or ex mx racers, BBB is not a race meeting. Its a event for the old blokes to get out and (enjoy) their old bikes. A well managed grass track with a few ski jumps would be perfect. Even though it was to small years back they had a scrambles track near the swap meet area and that was quite popular.
