  1. 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
  2. Great work Ben [emoji106]
  3. 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....

  5. Small addition to the frame today, but something is better than nothing!!
  6. 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
  7. The clutch housing and shock body came up a treat [emoji106]
  8. I had a motow on the back of a triton tray, with the tow hitch under the tray. The factory "light duty" towbar was too far back and the peg on the bike folded up and sat against the tray, but the factory "heavy duty" towbar which sits a bit more forward, but still under the tray(had 2 ute that I could swap out the towbars) worked perfectly, didn't have any issues with anything fouling...
  9. We sell them (not the kits unfortunately, just the provent cans and the replacement elements) but have fitter to mn tritons and a kit to an new ford ranger (genuine provent, proper fitting kit) and they aren't hard to install at all, and especially with the tritons that I have come across, they suffer from breather and egr mixing to restrict the inlet and also the boost sensor to throw codes and put into limp mode. I reckon they are one thing that should be fitted to any diesel
  10. Just read through your resto, great write up, looking forward to see the next steps!!
  11. Depends on the tyres, but I found between 6-8 psi in the rear and 8-10 psi in the front worked for me on starcross 5's
  12. It has loops on the drawbar for the pegs, i just used d shackles and turnbuckles I still use tie downs on the front, but they arent really needed with the setup i have....i just like the extra security!!
  13. When i was looking into it, there are a lot of ones out there (ballards, motow, rack and roll, etc.) I was going to get the ballards, but when i went to get them they were out of stock, and the extra to get the lights, anti sway jigger and ramp also put me off I didnt trust the "cheaper" ones, after all if it fails then its not only your bike that could be stuffed, but every other person on the road near you too!! (They all probably use the same/similar steel anyway, but still had the same thought on them) I liked the rack and roll, and there was another too but they were way out of the pric
  14. Sorry for the lack of updates, had a few issues with parts and trying to find them. Finally got the top end on, sent off The side cover for water blasting and the generator is getting rewound and that should be most of the motor done (carby is still a bit on an unknown, may or may not be usable) Starting to concerntrate on the frame, once that is done i can start on the tin work and forks, which is the bulk of the bike
