General Discussion / Australian Motocross Champions List
« on: September 10, 2013, 09:14:23 AM »
i'm not sure where to find such a list, whether there's an archive somewhere.
was wondering if such a list is available for all the Aussie MX Champs through the years,
mainly interested in the 70's through to late 80's thanks to all who can help :)

For Sale / 2 x YZ80J Motors 80% complete. Treadwell Barrel
« on: December 18, 2012, 10:19:19 AM »
I'm posting this on behalf of an older workmate who don't drive no computer or handle text messeges real well. so if i give you his number, please ring it.

2 x YZ80J motors fairly complete in a box, missing heads.
one motor has a YZ80T barrel ported by Gary Treadwell.
both motors were used in Go Karts,
and both are partially dismantled but apart from missing the heads are fairly complete
located Brisbane South side.
i don't have any photo's but have seen the goodies myself. best you make contact and talk it over with Chris the seller.
send me a PM and i'll pass on Chris's mobile number.
he may part some of it, he may post some of it, he may accept a ridiculous offer, he may also throw it all in the bin.
seems too good for the bin though, hence this post.

( i can store it in Brisbane until transport/pick up is organised)

Yamaha / Yammie Pre~90 125 Eligible?
« on: December 16, 2012, 09:53:13 PM »
Howdy all,
i've just been offered what looks to be a 1990 YZ125,
it's too good a deal to pass up on but after reading through our lovely MOMs,
all i can see is that lovely generic rule about,
"the only exception is where the model remains unaltered"
so to all you wise Pre~90 buffs out there,
how different is the 1990 YZ125 from the 1989 YZ125?
and would it be allowed into the Pre~90 class? as a flow on model?
thanks in advance... :)

Tech Talk / Refurbishing Disk brakes. Master & Slave Cylinders
« on: October 16, 2012, 09:03:18 PM »
as the tittle says folks.
pretty much everything i own is drum braked and now it's time to give old faithfull's brakes a service.
is it as easy as just buying a kit, giving the bores a hone, cleaning everything and then bolting it all back together with fresh fluid?
or is there more to it than that?

Tech Talk / The Perfect Clutch
« on: May 08, 2012, 10:39:52 AM »

Howdy folks,
just throwing up a diagram here and in this case it's a TY175 Yammie.
the problem i'm having is that its very hard to "slip" the clutch smooothly as it seems to engage with a real jerky motion. not ideal for trials.
motor has new bearings/seals, clutch basket has had the wear marks from the plates all smoothed out and i'm using good old Valvoline XLD which i've been using for years with no problems in all my bikes.
i'm wondering if the plates are a bit "gummed up" from previous years so am considering sanding them on a flat surface with 400 grit paper and will also check clutch arm (it 15 in the diagram) for any wear.
the cable is well oiled and works fine.
so i guess the question is,
what kind of things are you blokes doing to your clutches to create the "perfect clutch"?

General Discussion / So what boots are we wearin Boys?
« on: December 30, 2010, 02:57:50 PM »
sadly, it's time to retire the old boots and i'm in the market for another set.
by far my favourites many years ago were a set of Alpine Stars but for the sake of this thread i'd be keen to hear what brands and bang for your buck so to speak people are wearing.
all budget levels etc.
my last pair of boots i got from cash converters real cheap and they were a super comfy "no name" brand.
i'd buy em again in a heartbeat but they're now knackered.
so what are we wearing folks?
{and just for the girls, So what boots are we wearing folks?}

General Discussion / 2010 MXoN
« on: September 22, 2010, 12:57:12 AM »
is Metty our best chance?
he's in good form and gave Dungey some pretty solid heat in the last few rounds of the AMA nationals but as we all know, he's yet to crack that "WIN"!
USA will be hard to beat as always. i'm hoping Cairoli and Dungey go at it both moto's with Metcalf stalking.
not long to go now... :)
