250 & 400 twinshocks look similar and they are both relatively rare

If its a twinshock then it should look like this;

Excellent course, lots of good technical sections with breathers in between.
I found the pines were no problem at all, I think the trick to riding slippery pines is to turn up late, start even later and then ride them after everyone else has cleared the course for you.
One lap was enough for me, I tips my hat to all those that went out twice.

Thanks to all those that made this event happen

Ahhh, your not looking at the forks for ID so they must be aftermarket, I still think you should concentrate on the backing plates.
Some Yamahas have the lug in line with the fork and some are at an angle, more to the rear of the fork tube, that should whittle the suspects down a bit

While I agree with Hoony I did have a KX 250 that melted a piston twice in 2 years (Curse you Sea Lake)
A flush out and new piston and it was fine for several years.

You been a bit quiet of late, are your projects ramping up again now?

That's a long list of wheels to try to identify forks from, they were also a lot of different forks for all those models.
You would be better concentrating on backing plate lists and identifying fork attributes

For 250 and big bores;
YZ D models had a shorter underhang under the axle
YZ E & F models have a longer underhang and also have a fake nipple for the oil drain just above the real one
YZ models have the drain behind the fork
IT models have the drain at the side of the fork, up to 81/82 as far as I know
125's were a smaller diameter.
Early TT/XT were in line axle
Later TT/XT were leading axle but have a short underhang not unlike the YZ D models

I have 2 caps;

There were two sizes of exhaust. I have presently fitted the larger bore but  a tuner mate  welded up a conical internal reducer inside the header to get rid of the step exiting the head.

What is the standard diameter of the exhaust and what size are the after market exhausts?

Postage $16.50

They've lost the plot if they intend to go down this path.
It's probably too logical to want to just build a track that guys would love to ride :o

3 Bridges Vinduro 2 Day.

The  VERi Three Bridges Vinduro Two Day is coming up next weekend
This event is not unlike a four day Enduro but it has been compacted down to 4 loops that can ridden over 2 days.

Entrants will be expected to attempt at least one of these loops.
Penalty for failing to complete said loop under power will see you having to push to the finish or worse, asking for help which will see you ridiculed on social media where your name will be mud forever or until the next nuclear war, whichever comes first.
A SA entrant won this penalty last year

There will be one special test (Starting your bike)
Penalty for failing to do so will see you ridiculed on social media where your name will be mud forever or until the next nuclear war, whichever comes first.

Work period will be between 12.00 Sat to 3.00 on Sunday arvo
However the penalty for needing to work on your bike will see you ridiculed on social media where your name will be mud forever or until the next nuclear war, whichever comes first.
Note to self, make sure clutch is working properly before the event to avoid having to remove the clutch cover in muddy conditions
