Thanks Geoff, great pics !! alot of moded MX bikes back then. I guess they were cheaper than the euros. Do you remember doing any suspension mods to the TT350?

Just updated the photo links, they should all work again now.

Wow, 10 years and I just realized I didn't reply to NSR :o

No Photos of Ricky, these are pretty much all I have.

Only vaguely remember the kart track, my times would have been poor as I was busy trying to stay upright.

Starting at the back its hard to imagine how you could have a good day on day one, it was just a big slopfest when I went through, guys always seem to get themselves stuck in the easy lines so going around them in the awkward lines just consumes time and energy, 300 k's a day of that shit was all too much for me :'(

Suzuki / RM400 creeping clutch
« on: January 14, 2019, 12:50:08 PM »
I have a 1978 RM400 in good condition, everthing original and adjusted correctly.
When the bike is cold its not too bad but once the bikes warms up the clutch still wants to slightly pull with the lever all he way in.
Was this a common issue on these back in the day? Any ideas on a fix? I was going to try a clutch lever and perch with a longer throw.

There may be a trendy vegan bars by those names, who knows. The other end of the chain I refer to is attached to a boat.

Your right they are worthless, Ill save the trash from being turned into another "vomit" cafe racer. I seem to like trying to throw around boat anchors in the bush  :-[

The old XT500 will always be worth something as they have a cult following. What they are worth is disputable...!?
I may be interested in purchasing if he wants to sell?

Id love to try one of these on a old bike.  The improvements could be greater than a new bike.

Just cant win can you. I think this is a awsome step forward for the Vinduro comunity. VERI are running the meet and have decided its pre88...simple as that. (Im down with pre 95) but its not about just me. Get a pre88 bike and join in the fun or you can always run your own event.

out of interest who do you use in Melbourne?

where are you located. i know of 3 in Melbourne.

Bracket racing classes are based purely on lap times, no mater what your riding. A little more tricky in mx but a similar system could be done. A novelty at least.?
