Greg the 2 answers I got was others have had success with good old fashioned Tarzan's Grip and the blue glue you use to connnect PVC pipes. I bought some of both today and will be trying it tomorrow. I'll let you know how it goes mate
I've always liked Tarzan's Grip. I suspect it is very similar to the bootmakers glue I got the good oil on for repairing plastic inlet manifolds (its fuel resistant)but I forget the important chemical component ????

The drive chain conversion job was neat. I only remember the one but didn't follow racing very closely. People all said it was for more power to the wheel, but I always thought it was for adjustable final drive ratio.
I had a friend who went thru two, both from new, he did mega miles. Each was traded with 250-300 K km covered. They still ran well and I don't think he ever did more than regular service to them. Je lamented the end of the model but traded the second on the xs replacement .

Bike desirability is obviously a personal thing. But they are definitely an iconic model. They are also great for outfits and should be very feasible fix ups.
PS, but as with any bike I reckon if the person contemplating the tlc doesn't want the bike to keep they're better off selling as is and getting something they want to keep. I don't think you ever make money, unless you're time is worthless.

Tech Talk / Re: Needle jet shroud height changes? Mikuni VM38.

I read a couple of years ago a technical report from perhaps Penton originating early 70's about cutting down or slotting the shroud on a bing carb in a sachs 125, changing idle jettng and improving throttle response at low revs. By the time I got spares I couldn't find the article to duplicate

Oh how I wish we had rec rego in NSW........
Another option would be to become a licensed motor dealer and just hang you trader's plate on ya camel back. ????

I had some solid aluminium bars that were brilliant at stopping vibration (but were flat bars so did stay long ). I've never seen another pair but I guess thick walled alloy bars will be similar?

My general rule now, for quite some years thinking about it, is to NOT buy raffle tickets etc foar any charity, because of an exact same thing. I got out easily though, I got onto he beneficiary organisation and said I'd not had it explained to me, was happy to do one but they needed to cancel further.

The quad was kitted out with track marking tools. I only cut trees that the saw blade on my whipper snipper could handle Don ok
I'm seeing you just riding that thru the scrub with all those cutters and saw going flat out carving an awesome trail ???? but its pretty scary

Please don't say the bloke on the quad was cutting trees ????
