    A Revival Mission...

    Thread Starter: Grumph

    If it's good enough for Sidecar Bob to have to revive the odd RC30 or OW01 I thought I'd better start another project.... This is my EX500 Kawasaki based F3 bike. Usually ridden by Mark Taylor, it led Nationals, should have won at least one...Should have won Wanganui (arm pump...) But did win...

    Heads up - buying overseas will have GST from Oct next year

    Thread Starter: HenryDorsetCase

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/business/industries/107929221/taxfree-internet-shopping-to-end-next-october I am sort of relaxed about this except: a lot of the time the cost of shipping is half the cost of the order, and I dont so much mind the 15%, but I hate the added levies when stuff gets stopped...

    Hi All, my first question... sorry if it is too stupid I couldn't find anyone around who could help with the answer ;) My starter motor has died and when I opened it I was a bit shocked. It was full of oil and other creamy stuff, my questions are: 1. Should starter motor have that much oil...

      Weather got better for the race in the afternoon, although it was still a bit windy. Great race to watch.

      Some technical infringements in one new class which were apparently sorted before they went out on track

      That's because we're a class that always sticks to the rules

      Indeed, but they got off on the grass at that last start but the CTAS coverage wasn't close enough to show us exactly what happened, and they had a good comeback from that - well done boys .

      His favourite action? What about you Kick were you happy with the weekend?

      I watched a bit of the CTAS coverage and that was pretty good compared to previous efforts including the post race interviews.
