General Discussion / Re: 18th this year
« on: May 19, 2018, 10:04:37 PM »
Scary headline I saw earlier today was that there have been more students killed this year than servicemen, if that's correct it is a really bad state of affairs considering how many wars the states are officially & unofficially fighting

I use a from memory Cemoto 1 on my CZ that seem to be aimed at use on old british bikes in the main but a quick look on ebay has a heap that could easily work listed for pit bikes for around $10
If you are making your own the most common sheet to find will be nylon which will take the shape nicely with heat & clamping

When I did my YZ465H forks which are the same basic design I stripped them down fully rather than trying to hydraulic out the seals as described in the manual, I needed to do the bushes as they were worn & they are the first point of sealing
Moose racing/All Balls racing do a kit with bushes & a few extra parts that is cheap enough to let you do the whole job properly

OTZ in Poland show new hubs as being available, not sure if they're still made of elektron but they do look the same
You can go for their works hub which ditches the steel sprocket mount if your pockets are deep enough

Tech Talk / Re: Improvements to lathe

Don't forget that on the cross-slide you're indicating half what you're actually taking off, came across a lathe that had the dials reading on radius rather than diameter which is really unusual
Good way of getting a DRO on a small lathe, only downsides are screensize & visibility

Tech Talk / Re: Mikuni metric threads??

Metric but not the same as common fasteners. A lot of their stuff is listed as ISO type which is what the dot on the head indicates

Have always turned on my trials bikes & haven't noticed any difference to how they behave

Couple of places in europe can supply a new pipe for a decent price that will be as close to the original as possible. If you want a race pipe contact Geoff Morris (GMC)

Talk to Zane ( FAT-TOY), he's just finished restoring 1 which has a thread in the general discussion board

cheap copy of a Husky TE.....and when you consider most of the Husky/KTM stuff is now manufactured in India...I'd say it will be more reliable than it's original...
Reading what was written the engine is oversized Yamaha DT230 complete with oil injection. More a trail motor than full on enduro

If the tube works in the other slider that would suggest the other tube will bind at the same spot in your problem slider, to me that means the slider is the issue

Had a couple of those emails now, looks like it may have bitten them in the arse like most predicted. Don't think I'll take the offer up

Seems as though they've started to fell the resistance to paying $400us from private users, I got an email today with a price drop to $100us but I still won't be taking that up
I belong to the Trialscentral forum &:users who pay 10gbp a year subscription are able to post photos directly to the site & don't have adverts scattered thru the threads. Would be interesting to know how the owner is able to do this

and then when google have a large client base they will do same as photo bucket

this is how to create wealth, hook in a client base with free services, build it up and then extort them.

happens in industrial automation software.
Seeing as photobucket & Facebook are both property of Mark Zuckerberg now it can't be much longer before the fees start there unless the point of buying photobucket was to drive people into using facebook for their photos. The initial slowing down & saturation with ads only began after the buyout

Maico / Re: Maico 490 Corte Cosso Shock Rebuild - Contacts
« on: January 16, 2018, 07:34:49 PM »
I also have a set of Corte Cosso's to be rebuilt, I have heard that Ohlins internals go straight in, and that Paul Stacker is the expert to see.
Pretty sure a friend with quite a few Maicos had that done here in New Zealand, definitely had a mono shock upgraded that way
