There are no rules for vinduro in the current MoMS, although there was talk a year or so ago of a faction preparing a set to be presented to MA for consideration as a national title event. Not sure if they were presented to the enduro commission or not, although it seems they weren't.

I'll take them if they are still available. I've sent a message through Gumtree as well.
Cheers,

Yes Ted, the wording should be changed to reflect it, I will put it on  the agenda. Most people refer to them as flat slides but you are correct in saying they are crescent shaped slides. They are 100% legal for EVO though.

You're info is incorrect Ted, the CMX commission is as it was although all commissions will be/are getting a re-hash (some already have). Either way there will be a CMX presence within MA, albeit under a slightly different structure.
As for PWK, they are fine for EVO. The EVO rules encompass the "period" (up to & including post classic). PWK's are std equipment in the post classic period. TLS front brakes are also fine, once again std equipment for the period.
There is a lot of "false news" bandied about stating the EVO components must come from a bike with all 3 main criteria for the class as std equipment, ie: air cooled, drum brake, no linkage. Not so, if it is an air cooled motor, drum brake or non linkage system from any bike within the period (up to & including the post classic period), you can use it. Eg: you could use the forks, wheel & TLS brake from a 1982 YZ or CR as they are original drum brake forks within the period, even though they came from a bike with liquid cooling & linkage suspension. If there is a 1994 model bike out there with drum brake front end, air cooled engine or a no linkage suspension, you can use those components as well.
Ralph, if you have specific eligibility questions, direct through the MA ofice who will then forward your inquiries to the correct commission & come back to you with a definitive answer. You'll get 100 different opinions by asking on social media. go to the correct channels & get the correct advice.

KTM / Re: Marzocchi assembly
« on: October 24, 2018, 08:25:42 PM »
40 x 52 x 10 is correct size for 40mm Marzocchi in KTM. The wipers don't seat that well, you have to push them in carefully but it's still a bit dicky, especially if the fork leg has a dent or is out of round. You should have 1 x long spring, 1 x short spring & 1 x top out spring in each leg. Obviously someone previously got it wrong & put the "missing" top out spring in the wrong leg, in the wrong place.

John Titman don't sell vintage Husqvarna engine parts. Have you split the webs yet? A lot of times the rod itself is ok, pins & big ends are easy enough to get.

Evolution is an extremely popular class & belongs in the classic titles. Without evolution the riders numbers would have been ordinary at best. It's up to the hosting clubs as to how they run the age groups & it's been done successfully both ways in years past. The hosting club decided to do all powers age groups in this instance, in attempt to award the largest number of Australian titles they possibly could. Of all the classes at the event, only 4 did not reach the required competitor numbers to attain title status. This would have been different had there been age group capacity classes. I'm an average rider & rode a 350cc bike in evolution 50-59 all powers, finished 6th overall out of 24. I went past bigger capacity bikes and am sure their were smaller capacity bikes ahead of me. I also rode a 400cc bike in pre'75 50-59 and had a couple of good battles with a guy on a Honda CR125M. Engine size doesn't really matter & if you got a place, you know you earned it. It's impossible to keep everyone happy, perhaps BMCC will adopt the age group/capacity class way for 2019.

At this stage it's only the 2 x 30-39 age groups & side cars. There is not a women's class due to no entries. All others are good to go for Aus titles.

108 entries, with all but a very few classes making the numbers required for championship status. The weather forecast is looking perfect, so all go for a very successful event.

Entries are coming in steadily but only 21 days till entries close on Sept 5th for this event. Don't leave it till the last minute, get them in the mail by Sept 2nd at the latest unless you intend using express post (do it today though).
Long range weather forecast couldn't be better, 15-18 degrees, mostly sunny over the 3 days.
