  1. That’s a great story and pics Phil66. Thanks for sharing. You gave it a really good going over. Good job with the electrics and radiator too.
  2. Steviewonder, I’ve got the smaller style one. Not exactly the same but very similar. It’s branded 4enduro. They probably all come out of the same Chinese factory. Had it for about 6 years now. I use it all the time. Like the others have said it’s good for the price. Two things to note. I don’t use the footpeg holders it comes with. I usually work in the same spot in my garage so when I’ve raised the bike up to working height Ive set up a ratchet strap from the ceiling truss to the middle of the handlebars to hold it up and stable when you start taking wheels and forks, even swingarm off. After a couple of years the hydraulic oil started to seep out. I top it up now and again - must get around to fixing it, but it still works fine and a rag at the base soaks up a tablespoon or so of oil every 6 months. You can raise it to a seated working position or a standing working position. It’s very handy and makes maintenance easier.
  3. Noodles, reading your post brought back some memories. About 12 years ago I cleaned up a pretty worn out KX60 for my brother in law, for his boy. I gave it a top end but the Nikasil plating was wearing off, like you described , probably worse and I asked him if he wanted it replated. He didn’t so it went back together, ran for another year or so (trail riding) and he got rid of it. My advice is, if it’s got reasonable compression then just keep it going. Or if you plan to keep it a while a new top end wouldn’t be too hard or expensive. As for the running problem, did you take out the pilot jet and clean it and make sure you can se through it. It sounds like that is blocked. I’m not sure but I don’t think that carby had an air screw so you had to ensure the pilot was clean and correctly sized.
  4. Very well led 2t4me. Bushy brows, thanks for being the perfect sweep too. Another excellent Dirtriderz get together.
  5. All of the above BenG, ^^^. well done
  6. Thanks Shaun (and bigpete). We got a bit wet but it was fun and we all got around OK. The hills had more grip than the clay fire trails! Best on ground was Honest Tom on the very tidy Suzuki PE175. I had to have a go on it. 😄
  7. Thanks Rider. I’ll let others give more commentary. We had a very good day. No injuries or dramas. Conditions were perfect. Leeland joined us for his first Dirtriderz ride and now understands what “OMG, Dakota, 2+ means” in the original post for this ride. We ushered him back to the cars after 40 minutes. He rode with some others then had a chat with us when we got back. We came across a huge group of 4WDs at the base of a hill. They must have a lot of patience as they wait around a lot. It seems they move 30 metres per hour! Lots of good trails, lots of other groups out today. A good representation of Yamaha’s, Motochick (thanks for the go on your X!) Quentin. Dann and Rider. Mick and Rick, good to meet and ride with you KTM guys today, you were both on my tail regularly. Thanks Fab for being the patient, faithful sweep. Thanks to the cheese & wine club boys ( well represented today) Drinks at the end and firing up the campfire with plenty of petrol were part of the entertainment. Daniel got the chainsaw happening, I think he just likes listening to two strokes going flat out!! Some pics from me including what’s for lunch pics. We came across splints and Tripitaka vehicles half way through the day so we helped ourselves to their beers.
  8. Noodles thread that asked “who’s riding where on Saturday” morphed into a great ride at Cobaw, very handy crew of five. There were patches of light drizzle and conditions were good. At lunch we all laughed at the “level 2” that was asked for. Everyone rode well and aside from lifting Jonos bike out of a monster rut and a few topple overs, Rider put us through a good mix of tracks with no dramas Some pics from me Selfie at set off Noodles chooses the right line noodles and Eric tackle the rocks Rider shows us how to jump logs lots of 4WDs about, this one was winching Over a beer Rider and I discuss the joys of owning Yamaha’s.
  9. I’ll reply for this Ben/buzz. You can replace the alloys with steel ones. It’s not uncommon. If you are particularly hard on the clutch it makes it a bit more robust. doing all the plates in one go is recommended (either stock set up or all steel)
  10. I just picked up a new 2020 150tpi Husqvarna- for a friend. We’re off riding this weekend. Looking forward to swapping bikes a bit and the inevitable drag race! Just pushing it about you can feel it’s over 10kg heavier than the 125 Yamaha.
  11. One Demon, I’m curious. Do you know why the top AND bottom end needed rebuilding. It’s a 2019 TPI. How many hours has it done.
  12. This pic looks familiar but I just can’t place it. Would I have ridden there Hummdinger?
  13. Bushy, I put stickers all over the rear of my enclosed trailer 10 years ago and now I kind of wish I’d kept it clean. It would be a hell of a job to remove them all.
