Maico / Re: Maico 490 Corte Cosso Shock Rebuild - Contacts

I used the standard CC shocks on the last MC490 I raced with RM400N/T shock springs. They were pretty good. RAD shock repairs in Brisbane can sort them for you.

The event is going forward in Vic as planned with only a slight change of venue. It was originally scheduled to be held in Stawell Vic but will now take place in Ararat Vic, which is about 20 minutes or so from Stawell.

Nothing to do with Roczen coming back from injury Kevin, just a dick move by a rider going way slower than guy he tried to stop passing him. In my mind he has no right to do that because they are not really competing for the position. Different story if they are 1 & 2 in the last corner of the last race for a championship. In this case it's a back marker deliberately blocking a front runner.

Wanted / Re: Husky WR360 decompressor head (water cooled)

Why? They are not hard to start but you can make your own if you really want one. Off to the mower shop, get a decomp device (that's all it is), turn up a boss, weld it in the head & screw the decomp device in.

What's the deal with Cooper Webb twice cutting Roczen off in a heat race FFS? Roczen was clearly going LOTS faster yet Webb deliberately changes his line with only one thing in mind & almost causes an incident. I guess it was the only way Webb had any chance of finishing in front of Roczen as Kenny was always going to ride around him. While it was probably good for Kenny to get some argy bargy out of the way, IMO it was a pretty poor effort on Webb's behalf.

I watched it on TV, has to be the same thing...yes?...maybe? It did enthuse me to go out & rip off a few huge triples on your bike though.

Don't waste your money on All Balls junk. Go to a bearing service & buy Timken L44610-20024 bearing (cone) & L44600LA-902B6 cup.

Why do you want to replace it? If it's crook, get it fixed, easily done & cheaper than a replacement. Everyone seems to bag the Mototplats but I've not had any issues with them. I personally hate PVL ignitions. If you must replace it, have a look at the HPI website.

Nothing hard about an auto, although they do require a specific oil. They are actually very easy to work on. I have engine manuals if he needs info.

What are you up to Paul? That bike is a pearler & runs as it should, it actually goes pretty damn well, very strong everywhere in the power curve, I would not tinker with it. My suggestion is to leave it alone & just ride it.

Wanted / Re: RM125, 250 or 400 fork yoke set...

No luck on '78 top clamp. I have earlier, 36mm with fixed upright bar mounts or later, 36mm with fixed layback bar mounts if they are of any use?
