KTM / Ktm 504 1983 Mxc or not ?
« on: March 24, 2017, 06:54:30 PM »
I can get my hands on a ktm 504 Mxc 1983 rotax if I want but need some advise or a push.
I've done some web research and found only good stuff about them they are rear only 40 came to oz one thing that makes it more worth it.
I Have read engine parts can be sourced from a few places in the states and in England but not cheap.
The rotax engines are popular in the states in flat track racing and Ron wood is the go to man over there .
They have a rubber belt instead of a timing chain but if it replaced when needed no
I found a couple of places that still do
Plastics etc for it .
And the Mxc model has bigger forks , diffrent cam and crank than the GS model.
But the specs on the net says it weighs 156kg ouch not sure if this is right  ???
I still think it would be the best pre 90 four stroke .
What do you guys think , buy it or not ? Then I wouldn't mind a CR250 87 or 88 ? :o

Tech Talk / Ohlins shock eyelit remover
« on: September 08, 2016, 07:13:27 PM »
Hi guys
I want to put the shortest bottom eyelits on my piggy back Ohlins to make them shorter.
I came up with a idea to remove them with out damaging the chrome shalf ,
I have a peice of alloy square 25mm x 25mm I drilled a hole in the centre of it the same size as the shock shalf then I cut it in half through the centre of the hole so I could put one peice eather side of the shock shalf right at the end of the shalf then clamp it in a vice to stop the shalf Turning while removing the eyelit is this how the pros do it ?
I just don't Want to damage the chrome on the shalf but I will be doing this right at the end of the shalf where it's not going to travel into the shock body .
Or should I just post them to Steve cramer  or bk on this forum ?


Trying to get a frame from Sanctuary point  nsw or from Nowra nsw  to dargle in nsw heavens next bike meet this weekend  :o
Can pay by beer or smokes or gas . ;D

Wanted / Wanted 1976 xt500 bits
« on: May 04, 2016, 08:40:28 PM »
A mate is chasing some 1976 xt500c bits .
He's After Org rear shockers he said they are shorter than other model xt,tt500 models.
Standard Tt,xt500 lengths are 365mm long so must be a tad shorter than this to suit the xt500c .
And he's after the rear heat shield that's towards the end of the org exhaust system.
He's trying to find these bits in Australia rather than Ebay in the states with the dollar exchange and postage costs .
Thanks mick.
