Compliance plates only became fitted to all bikes that were ADR'd October 77 onwards but ADR's came in after July 1975. If the bike never had a compliance plate and its pre October 77  then you can register it.

So yes means bikes like 75 and 76 RM's, CR's, YZ's even though they do not have compliance plates, can all be registered once you mod them to meet ADR requirements of lighting/mirrors/horn etc.

Tech Talk / Re: Reading a plug?

Sorry for the late response but I've been in for more back surgery.
Probably need to tell us what sort of motor and what it is being used for as 2 and 4 strokes will so different things in the plug.
With unleaded pump fuel the plug will always be black around the edge as is the entire inside of the combustion chamber after it has been run for a while. The colour of the insulator will go black if it very rich but it takes some time. The insulator can also be black and shiny if it is to lean in a 2 stroke, sounds wrong but if the plug is getting hotter than normal the oil in the fuel will bake onto the hot surface sending it black. I have seen quite a few motors recently that have seized after the owners got advice from the pits expert "mate your plug is black it's way to rich go down in main jet" next outing they do a top end and when it gets to me every thing in the top end is baked black from the heat.
So my advice is to be very cautious with plug colour.   
Wanted / 1984 CR 500 Clutch Cover Wanted
« Last post by enzo906 on December 05, 2019, 09:18:39 AM »
I am after a 1984 CR500 clutch Cover, prefer undamaged / repaired as I have one of those now looking for a good one.
Also if anyone knows which tank strap of the more modern bikes will suit an 84 cr 500 tank. The water cooled ones are too long and I was told a CRF150R would work  if anyone knows that would be helpful.
