Kawasaki / Re: new klx250 carb legal or not
« Last post by cloggy on April 19, 2018, 06:48:37 PM »
I feel a lot of the problems with the KLX stem from it being overcarbed. It's 4mm bigger than a KL with about half a horsepower advantage at the top end. If I was buying an aftermarket carb I wouldn't go bigger than 30. The standard carb is a pain to jet but on mine at least the needle jet ended up two or three sizes smaller then the bike finally ran right. I also used the smallest of the four main jet options that Kawasaki advised and I think I changed the pilot. Looking at old test reports it's painfully obvious that the jetting wasn't always optimal on those either. There were two sizes of exhaust. I have presently fitted the larger bore but  a tuner mate  welded up a conical internal reducer inside the header to get rid of the step exiting the head. He did that when replacing the first foot of the pipe and didn't tell me.That threw the jetting out, but once I'd reduced the main jet yet again it ran better than before. With the jetting right the engine doesn't stumble when whacking the throttle open. It just runs like an electric motor, albeit a weak one. If I was serious I'd put an XR200 diameter pipe on. That engine produces better power.

I've still got the magazine somewhere (think it was Cycle World) which has the speedway bike he had gold plated.

Vinduro / Re: Vintage Class A4DE
« Last post by NSR on April 19, 2018, 05:46:02 PM »

The 3 clubs put on a great 4day and as much as it hurt I think it was great the way they didn't let us off. If we had been just sent out to the STs on the road than back again I & even my mates that didn't make it would have been pissed off. If we had done that I'm sure Daniel Milner would not have mentioned us at the presentation night. We were treated as a A4DE Class. You can’t ask more than that.
Unlike most of the mainstream bike media! Ricky Madden won the vintage class! he raced it as hard as any of the riders in the other classes not that you would know from the mainstream bike media even the MA website had nothing. We 57 riders paid the same entry fee, followed the same rules, just like the other classes some guys raced it others rode to finish. The least the media could do is give the results of our class in the articles about the event, even just acknowledge we were there.
It was a great week for Vinduro racing in Australia.

Vinduro / Re: VERi Harrow 100 Vinduro - 10th anniversary, 28-29 July 2018
« Last post by VERi on April 19, 2018, 08:38:25 AM »
The VERi committee met last night, and naturally the 10th anniversary of this iconic event was the topic of much discussion.

We are planning on having a static display of vintage enduro bikes, that will be a feature of the Saturday night dinner. This is a chance to show that stunning garage queen to a wider audience! So, if you have a clean example of pre 1988 bike that you think would be suitable, please get in touch via email with some pics of your bike: verivinduro@gmail.com

Obviously bikes that are being ridden over the weekend won't be suitable.

We will have limited spaces available, so we might not be able to take up all offers for the Saturday night display, but everyone is welcome to bring bikes along and show them off around the camp site etc.

Stay tuned for more updates!
