    Forma boots sale

    Lucky cos I was going to take that last pair of 10s on Friday but found them a little squishy, and it didn't look like the had any 11s left... Till we found one lucky last pair! He also told me not to tell anyone else about the boots because the sale was long over and their trying to wrap things up, but come on, a sell is a sell! Great boots can't wait to try them out!

    I heard that aswell, it’s pointless imo because there stop making the Carbys anymore , they should focus on the future.

    Yeah, the masochist in me can't let go of the KTM; no need for a mistress / dominatrix if you own a KTM! Hmmm, actually there's lots more positives of KTM ownership like; Comfort in knowing you've hit rock bottom and things can only get better. A great excuse if you're slow or get beaten. Gives you inspiration to get off the couch and get your old Jap bikes running. You get to appreciate your old KYB and Showa suspended bikes (although if your a serious racer I guess you could spend the mega dollars for the KYB internals kits for the KTM / WP suspension like the yanks do). Good incentive to ride your road and adventure bikes instead of hitting the tight trails or MX track.

    That's a lot of cash; I should just get the old KX500 going; it handles better and has better suspension than a KTM anyway.

    it's like that relation ship breakup. your ktm is saying it's not me it's you 'cause ktm's are faultless so the fault must be there in the mirror

    Whipsticks Bear Style

    I had a nice relaxed ride today, and have to say thanks to Bear for putting this ride on. Then there's a big thanks to Gypsy for firstly coming out to Whipsticks, then to sweep most of the day! I had been looking at the weather forecast on Friday and hanging off putting my name down. I was glad I did was bloody cold to start with, but no rain and some sun great bloke's to ride with most who I hadn't met before. No problem there as great attitudes slippery tracks provided a great day out, thank's Bear! Forgot to mention it was a pretty good pace today. After the first ride Gypsy, Paul - Lusk and myself decided to do an extra 30 km just for fun, another great squirt around thank's gentlemen.
  18. Check out my QRP HF setup with KX3 on the back of my KTM 990 a few years ago..sorry, link only http://www.vk3jap.net/blog/qrp-ktm990-motorbike-mobile QRP : Low Power KX3 : awesome mobile radio
  19. Had a few in the day. This HMV Roadhound was my first

    2013 Ktm 350.

    They run hot, make sure it's got a running fan and there's no oil weaped out around the oil sight glass. Do a compression test before buying if you can.

    To win you need to be confident on the bike. Some love em, some hate em. I'm in the latter category. i don't like hesitating because i can't predict what the bike will do or I know it won't react well at speed. Everytime i ride mine (or work on it) I swear i'm going to sell it or burn it.

    From memory these are/will be around $7500 Aus for the kit (plus any GST/duty/customs add ons) Not sure how many we'll see out on the trails?

    KTM 500's weren't very good or fast in the old days compared to the power valved hi rev / power kx500's. Does the kit have the power valve? The 380's were pretty damn good; if it wasn't in a ktm bike l could go a power valved 380.
  24. Well after some research and discussion have decided to make up a jump start 'wired in' solution. Testing results (2012 'Berg501) cold cranking peak : 170amps Warm cranking AVG : 40-70amps Wire Guage : 12 (2.05mm dia) Plugs : XT60 jumper leads : modified (plug/socket installed) Ballard jumper leads. (Good quality the Ballard's ones, v.good clips) Wire to battery without fuse. I have made up an end piece,. Which is just like and end cap but designed such that the connector is always safe(no short) and secure..no mud etc. Plus not too fiddly with cold hands or gloves etc. Also handy for charging of course. You can get all the parts aside from the jumper leads kit from Jaycar. So not if you're riding with me..I can jump your bike without taking my seat cover off. If both bikes had this installed - double awesome! (I would wire another plug into my jumper leads). Some pics..!
