i note carefully the Honorable member for Broadford has failed to mention the miserable performance in the mx section he is responsible for...

Suppressed memory
We were supposed to watch the flagman to drop the flag for the start but dickhead me was watching the wrong flagman, was wondering why everyone was jumping the start then realized I had been left behind.
It was hard work coming from behind on the KLX

Thinking about it some more I think my list is from 82
Alexandra ran a normal Enduro in 81 and moved to the Super Challenge in 82, not sure how many more they ran but I only rode the one.
By 82 my KLX would have had the 290 kit fitted

Perhaps you didn’t finish the race you entered in 1981 until 1982?

Interested in the trials tyre but I think your in NSW?
I know you said pick up only but I would need it posted or if someone might be passing by next week on the way to the nationals that could drop it at Broadford.
If I can work out how to get it here then I can think about what to offer you.

From the wacky inventions thread from years ago.



Seen at Broadford many years back


Have you thought about having the balance factor of the crank looked at?
Better to fix the problem than hide it

I think it might be the guy from Geoffs Motorcyle Contraptions

It was 1981 actually and I kicked you arse in the hillclimb.
The hillclimb was timed going up as well as down and if there was one thing my KLX could do well was go fast downhills :o

Best you don't look at the MX results John

What were you riding that year John?

From memory they just use a U-bolt to wrap around the frame and it goes through the 2 holes in the mount on the chamber.
From what I have seen very few if any bother with them for racers

General Discussion / Re: When si 1000mm measured like 930mm

Its common in the metal game, try to buy a 2mm thick sheet of steel, Verniers say only 1.9mm
1.2 comes in at 1.1 and 1mm comes in at 0.9mm etc

For all the tonnes they sell they can stretch out the number of sheets per tonne by this 'skimming' practice.

Do they have a +/- 0.1 tolerance on sheet metal?

They probably do but why is it never plus, only ever minus
Also consistently minus so why not consistently make it the right size?

Some aluminium tubes are plus or minus 10% which is a pain as every other batch is a slightly different size

Used to do that many times in my youth, did it with grease though, would never waste good toast!

Not sure if it would work on a needle roller as the grease would squeeze out between the rollers so the hydraulic action wouldn't be as good, maybe that's why you use bread?

My wife keeps telling me about all the servo's that have the cheapest fuel so I went into one of them the other day and put $20 worth in.
When I went to pay it still cost me $20
I don't think she knows what she is talking about.

One easy trick is to put a squirt of petrol in the spark plug hole then quickly put the plug back in and kick it over, you should get a brief 'fire'
If you do then you have carby problems.
if you don't then you may not have done it right :o
