    which i brought originally, the lady who sold it on behalf of her out of town daughter even tracked me down through my mum when she'd found a pack and some new spark plugs for it. inside wasa receopit for work done about the same price as i paid for it. i remember her saying there's a problem with the starter motor, i said what was it, 'it's the thing they use to start motorbikes now. problem was the button on the switchblock was broken, no other damage, got just the button from a smashed unit locally and the bike went like a dream. brought a mint fairing at a swapmeet less blade for $2, on the way out to the car a guy was missing one for his so sold it to him for a wee bit more, he offered me a price not the other way around

    Somebody else makes an upgraded one that can be bought locally for a fraction of the price.

    Whats the go with why they are so needed on the RC30 i know they have the two piece set up with the shims for the gears by why do RC30s need new head bolts all the time?

    Not at all, but there will only be two people that are going to see them, and they're designed for reliability on a popular road car.
    Torque to yield I'm guessing.

    They don't. But they're all getting to the point at which you should replace them - and they're NLA. So there's a demand - but look at the price of those ones in the UK. Then realise you need 16 of them...They're an orphan 9mm socket head - and Honda didn't anticipate a demand 30 years on.

    I've already been told that some of the Aussies are very interested in what we find for alternatives. The parts that have been coming out of japan are drying up. The poor condition of this engine has simply ensured we had to look at alternatives with some urgency.

    Those cheating, sore losing, un sportsmanlike Aussies will be the last to find out what the bolts are after the dramas of the last couple or three Island Classics we have attended.
    I'll stand my ground on behalf of the UK team boss Roger Winfield. What they put him through is unforgivable.

    If the pictures & story don't speak for themselves, Roger is the nicest gentleman you could wish to meet.
    And that doesn't include the hoops of fire we had to jump through to run our Harris F1's there either.
    In a nutshell, if it looks like you might beat them they make it tough.

    so a cynic might think that that the Strayans were screwing the scrum by inviting people from halfway round the world, who had to spend a bunch of their own money to get there, then ensuring they received nothing for being there, then screwing the rules so that it ensured that the invited parties could not win but were guaranteed to come second and third respectively behind a triumphant Straya?

    Does that about sum it up?

    if it's the gas ruling my understanding it's a government driven thing about the something in the gas, motorcycling australia had their hands tied?
    when i sent the roberts bikes over last year the penny dropped while they were on the water that they had older pads that likely contained asbestos. I near shit myself as they are becoming so tough on that shit coming into their country that it's a joke, but it's their call.....
