  1. Check receipts, maintenance things (air filter cleanliness, brake pads & discs, sprockets and chain, wheel/general bearings, etc) Also look for marks on bolts where they have been loosened/tightened I.e. if the head bolts have socket marks ask when the top end was done. The more info the better. Also look at general appearance of the bike and make sure the bike starts well cold. If the bike has been warmed up before you get there is a big red flag!! If the seller cant/won't help by answering questions or giving history on the bike they are either a peanut or are hiding something in my expe
  2. Going for an easy ride on Saturday in neerim if your interested
  3. Yup. No, but probably will from now on, had them on the previous bike and didnt have any issues with them.but I do crash a lot !
  4. Thanks! Goes well except for the clutch perch i broke today[emoji51]
  5. No problems. Wont be until saturday, but will send some with & without the bike on. It should be the heavier one being 2.5t, should have 100x100 box section that the reciever is welded to, and some reinforcing like the picture on the reciever. Also the end of the reciever sits about 50mm in from the edge of the rear step (dual cab)
  6. I have a motow on the back of a triton. The motow does the job, the rack and roll is a better unit, but also costs more. If you can afford to, get the rack and roll, but if you have a lower budget, get the motow. Couple of things to be wary with the motow, it doesnt come with any lights, and it obscures the lights when a bike is loaded and also obscure the number plate on most vehicles, so you will need to consider spending extra for lights and maybe a bike carrier number plate (in vic at least). Also, I had an issue with my triton (mn) that there is a light duty towbar, and a heavy duty tow
  7. LolI went to a tpi partly for the same reason my last bike was an injected 4 stroke. After last carby bike I owned I swore I would never stuff around with carbs again.....until the neighbours hz decided to have fuelling issues
  8. Great work Ben [emoji106]
  9. Does anyone know what the 17, 18, 19, 20 front axle sizes are? Part number 79109081033 I am possibly looking at getting a new bike, but want to use the old (New) wheels off the current bike for reasons, the rear is a straight swap but the front has the 26mm front axle....

  11. Small addition to the frame today, but something is better than nothing!!
  12. Hey all, sorry for the old thread revival, but i finally got some progress to show!! I finally got all my engine parts together and the engine is in a state where i cant do anymore until i get some of he chassis parts ready, but it is together to a running stage (after i replace the rimlock nuts i used to keep the head on to the proper head nuts...) and has also been coated/cerakote, so will keep its finish!! the other thing that i finally have done is the frame. After realizing the frame i had was damaged & repaired, i put off doing anything for a while. Luckily, while i w
