Maico / MAICO 4speed Squaries and Radials,, Legendary Handling
« on: December 07, 2017, 01:13:47 PM »
I believe a few things would have contributed?

I had a NON ltr 73/74 Radial as a whipper snapper.
I had already owned and had my bum on a lot of different bikes.

The Maico just blew me away,,,,
by the way it steered and its ability to "forgive" under(out of control) acceleration.

Lived near the old abandoned dump between Waratah West and Shortland.
Basically flat, finished in ashes from BHP waste.
Could do the Maico in top hole at full noise, back of just a bit to let it come back on its giddyup curve
then pull the trigger back on and launch it sideways,,, did that a lot
Felt at risk on other bikes, but to the Maico it was a walk in the park.

There is no way on earth that these drop off machines and venues could handle the massive volume of this waste that is about to have a waste deposited applied!
The same waste that is already being processed responsibly by tens of thousands of residents into their fortnightly yellow lid council pickup bins.

I will simply forfeit this new deposit, as I think it will fair to expect that most working class will. Not enough hours in the day to add a new chore.

So what I would like to know is who gets to keep all the deposits that are forfeited by those who are already doing "the right thing"?

I am calm now, I just re-read that,,, makes sense to me :o
Had just had a confrontation with some rowdy neighbours last night, hadn't quite de-steamed when I came in and read Zanes post ::)

NON LITTER INCENTIVE SURCHARGE/TAX
I live in a busy inner city mixed use area. Lot of tradies and business utes etc during the day.
Would be lucky to see one empty stubby a year? or one or two empty coke cans laying in the street PER/YEAR.   WHICH ARE GETTING A TAX/SURCHARGE THINGY.

What I do see a lot of is McDonald's wrappings and paper drink vessels etc. Also disposable one use coffee to go cups. So will they apply it to the real culprit? NO THEY WONT!   and does anyone think tradies would ever save their rubbish and return to maccas or their local coffee shop for a ten cent refund? No friken chance.

So from what I see everyday is that they have it all wrong AGAIN,
Fukin hell, now I feel like Maccas breakfast menu and its just gone 10.32, FFS, now I need an Oozie

U can buy a double ended chinca copy of the Honda special tool for 12 or 13 bucks on delay posted to your door

Bit late now Matt,,, but good tip for punters planning a job soon to come  :D

That thing you are calling a "oil pick up thingy"  ;D ;D ;D ,,, sorry can't help it Alex  ;D  , it is a
"centrifuge"  and all that grey paste is the worn alloy,,, like most likely your head camshaft journals
that are non-ferrous and won't collect on a magnetic drain plug.

Seriously great innovation to collect "heavier" (waste) from the about to be recycled "lighter" SG 8.5 to 9.5 lube blood.

I haven't had an experience with them,

I wonder if they can be saved and set up to take Genuine Jetting components Husky 85? as per Hoony's lead?
Think I will join the FB groups for CR500 riders.

Keen to hear your results John.
