General Discussion / Re: Insurance for US

The insurance I need is medical incase something was to go wrong. The second motocross is mentioned things get either very expensive or we don't have a policy that will cover you
I contacted ridersurance in the states who specialize in finding coverage for racers but they are only able to do annual policies where I'm only there for 1 weekend of racing

Doesn't sound excessive at NZ1500 if they are covering you for ambulance rides including in the air and hospital treatment. I assume extended travel insurance would cover any medical needs for return air trip.

Insurance for what Tony? Your body or bikes?

John, same issue as yours: sparked out but hard to start in and a dodgy advance curve.
Nebo is onto it. There will be a stator on their list that works very well.

I am using the very similar Sellettra CDI that is matched for rpm and advance on a couple of high winding little Hondas and they are very good.

John, the various PVL's are not all suitable for relatively slow rpm kick starting. I was forced to investigate after a seller knowingly sold one to me for my B50/Clews that was incorrect. There are various PVL's out there selling cheap with low winding numbers that are apparently redundant homologated units made for 15000 rpm Karts .  There are also various mismatched combinations of stator and coil. PVL list about 70 different stator P/N's.

Well, you might be onto something with the lads. Have they seen Tony Bou on a trials bike?

The SL90 with the vertical cylinder is interesting. I think they were a 1969 model, at least in Japan. If any landed here it would possibly make them eligible for 250 cc Pre70 VMX.

The grade of die cast magnesium they use is virtually unweldable and there is no room between the clutch pressure plate and the case inside.

Easiest way will be to have one cast in aluminium. You could drill the mainshaft and use a pushrod like the later ones if you were up for a bit of machining.

Kids want to ride MX; encourage that. The trials bike will get ridden a couple of times then parked regardless of Grandpa's blood, sweat and $ ;-).  I bought a TLM50 Honda- the full size trial 2 stroke 50 they made- and proved this theory adequately. $002.

Old SL90's had manual clutches, so did some of the other non Aussie models. Not too hard to find the bits.

Wanted / Re: Wanted: 19" alloy rim with 36 spoke holes

Thanks for the link.
I guess you saw the postage at AU$100? on top of AU$150 for the two rims (I only need one).
How do you know what sizes they are? The ad shows no sizes....

The front is a 19 x 1.4; a nice quality, light weight rim, the same size as std SL100 as the add says.
Contact the seller; he will most likely supply a single rim and reduced postage. Same guy sells complete SL100 wheel assemblies- ie  new hubs and spokes with steel rims fitted for $79.00 + post.and is happy to supply them with the aluminium rims for not a lot more. Here:

Someone will probably know more, but as far as I can recall there were no Hondas, or others, fitted with a 19-1.4-36 aluminium rim. Plenty of 17" that will go on the hub but the big wheel minis- the most likely source- that use 19" had fewer spokes, usually 32.

Well--ummm, it was 50 years ago at work [m/cycle shop] & we used to use [i think] Solpar Paint [spelling] Used to pour it on & broom it around, maybe push it around with a big rubber strip broom thingy like pushing the cow shit to one corner of the cow yard to scoop up. Damn good hard wearing paint it was. No doubt long gone now but something equivalent must be out there. Just googled it & no record of it & i thought google knew everything lol. Maybe i got the name wrong. Keeps coming up Solar but maybe the modern version.

Probably Solver- used their floor paint as well. Adelaide company and still around.

I use MyUS John. They are in Florida and charge me $60 a year subscription. No doubt a west coast mob could be found. MyUS has a 30 day grace period for consolidation and then they charge a small holding fee. BTW had some stuff come from Japan last week; no GST.
