Hey stephen any luck on your kwakas and the dr and the gns, I was thinking you might as well keep buying old unrideable bikes, after which you can build a giant monument out of old bikes to please the biker god that maybe one day you will buy a bike off trademe that runs lol *jokes*, yeah an rs250 or a clubman or something else maybe..it's a surprise.

You need to understand that this site exists for the sole purpose of taking piss and organizing rides, and then taking the piss in person when you meet for the ride. Harden up.

10th April 2008, 23:51
oooh a DR! watch out madison doesn't get jealous though, and trust me bikes do get jealous just like 2 strokes like to sulk after you hurt their feelings (or ride them, leave them, let them get too cold, let them get too hot, ride them too hard, ride them too soft, etc etc)

i'll bring my yzf over and we can go tear up the dilworth sports feilds:devil2:

Sorry fellas, I'm not coming now. I just realised Sunday 20th is V8 Supercars in Hamilton. So I'll be propping up the lounge suite cheering on anyone in a Holden ( except Paul Morris and Russell Ingall :tugger: ). You boys ( and girls? ) have fun :scooter:

Nice to meet some of you guys at Strata yesterday.

Hey Stephen, it must be MGST's bike I saw at near HSB Building parking that I was talking about.

I WANT ONE!!!! :p

MGST
12th April 2008, 17:11
Well Mr Banzai, it *may* be for sale around October / November time when I leave the Land of the Long Refugee Queue and head over to the big piece of red dirt. But I may keep it and take it with me. Depends how good the offers are...:whistle:

BANZAI
12th April 2008, 17:25
If you have seen my previous thread about 50cc Honda, im pretty broke at the moment...

I can spend $1000+ on bike but I think your ones gonna cost more than that I suppose....

Macstar
14th April 2008, 12:41
Got my cast off today!!! Turns out a bone in my wrist is just chipped not broken. Even if I did have my bike back though, I don't think the wrist would be up to a Sun spin unfortunately...

motorbyclist
14th April 2008, 12:47
farking sweet as dude!

i know a westie neighbour of mine rode his dirtbike with a similar cast on his right hand. the riding itch was worse than the wrist pain

shingo
14th April 2008, 13:55
Someone come on the 250 coro loop with a wrist cast on as well, so it can be done.

I can't make it. My fork oil is leaking like there's no tomorrow. :@

the seals gave way?
Both forks or just one?

you didnt have any pitting below the triple clamp :mellow:

Magua
16th April 2008, 16:33
They're both leaking. I've removed the wheel, getting to the forks. Where can I find a bolt with a 14mm head? 14mm allen keys are fucking expensive.

Squiggles
16th April 2008, 17:14
I dont remember what sized bolts those were that we used... they werent special or anything

Hmm, both, perhaps grab some new seals from cycletreads? They had a lot of them there on a rack and a catalogue, i got some for the dr250 from there

Magua
16th April 2008, 17:32
They would have been 14mm, that's what size is needed. I'll try flipping one of the seals over and pumping the fork to see what happens before replacing them.

Edit: Going to the bolt shop tomorrow!

Squiggles
16th April 2008, 19:53
If the bolt shop is as far as epsom drop by and take one of the bolts

motorbyclist
16th April 2008, 22:32
didn't you guys just do the seals?

how much more oil did you put in there compared to what came out?

Squiggles
16th April 2008, 22:54

yer, we did the seals. Probably only got 50ml out, with a bunch of sludge. There was meant to be something like 150 in it, cant remember, t'was in the manual

Magua
16th April 2008, 22:57
137-143cc. We put in 138.

Totally hi jacking this thread, what did we use to remove the fork seals the other day?

Squiggles
17th April 2008, 12:06
Main post updated

We used a flatblade to lever the old one out, had to move it around the edge while tapping the screwdriver to lever them out

the only reason hondas ever hang at the back is if they think the suzis might brake down and need some help :Pokey:

yeah steve posted so i assumed they finished riding

math has been less than ideal
monday to thursday was spent finding a basic cos and sin round the wrong way mistake
friday was almost entirely spent trying to find a bug in some code, put a 3 where a 4 should be....
saturday up until 5 minutes ago spent trying to find a mistake, now i've found the correct answer, but not how/why i was wrong before... should finish the project in a few hours provided i get all the code done correctly....

should've been finished by wednesday<_<

We could do the RRRS course in the morning and then the drag racing would be safer (where's the munted hillbilly smile?).

Fixed it for you, coz yours was slightly understated ( assuming it is the same as the last time I was there ).
