  1. @Dann @eric_705 and myself decided to go for a little spin last Saturday out at my Uncle Bobs farm. We found a little log you have to hit the rootball on and pivot 90 degrees as you go over whilst maintining enough speed to ascend the hill ... It didn't always go as planned Dan had a blast up this section Eric nailed this bit, I found the holy grail. A tree you can ride through. And we finished with a beer and snag . Was great to catch up and ride. Thanks for coming Dan and Eric .. I'm in lock down now , So I'm off the bike llike every one else. Keep riding you two while you can .
  2. This is old tiger cat track ... We should go for a spin out there soon before it dries out...
  3. Oh I'm sure , Mt Cole is better btw ...
  4. Its nowhere near the start of nowhere creek and nowhere near the end , it's simply one side of the gully that forms nowhere creek and it's an old line of old tiger cat track. Old tiger cat track goes in threes directions to confuse us even more and don't get it confused with new tiger cat track or the track Bruce calls pussy tiger cat track which is on the same side as that that hill but further downstream and is a bit of of rocky beast. It looks terrible but it's a really not that bad hence the name.. pussy tiger cat track. I have some pics of ptct somewhere I'll see of I can find one ...
  5. I know if a permanent magnet is not stored correctly in its keeper ( in this case the flywheel rotor and it's stator) for an extended period of time it can loose some of its magnetic strength to the point of failure. Perhaps this is the case in this instance if the bike was in bits for years and the rotor was not kept sitting on the stator . My suggestion would be to put a voltmeter and amp meter on the output of the stator when its not working ( kicking and looking at voltage peak- you will need a analog meter ) , juicing it up , resting the bike again for a very short period then doing it again comparing the voltages Sounds like your exciting the magnetic into working but then after a good rest it's lost most of magnetism again. Another way would be to measure the magnetic field strength with a Steel ruler ( at what distance does it get sucked in ) when bad and when good. Food for thought anyway
  6. Thanks, I had to screenshot a few to get them to upload but yeah, its quite epic after a big rain, some tracks are like creeks and you get to ride up them, the granite is so grippy you can ride very steep rocky tracks that have water gushing down them with no traction issues. Its a bit bizarre and sooo much fun
  7. Yeah it's a good hill. Bear and I went up it a couple of years ago. Nasty shale, the first 30 metres is the worst . The rest not to bad. Too fast you get airborne and loose control, to slow you break traction and stop. Nowhere Creek is a fun spot.
  8. Saturday we started with 7 Mark,Dave and Chris from Ararat along with Lance,Al,Rusty and myself. Al's tubliss played up so he pulled out 2km into the ride keen to return Sunday. We did some harder tracks and tested our abilities. There were young healthy trees down on almost every track blown over on Wednesday I guess. This made the easy tracks hard and the harder tracks harder. We certainly weren't coverings as much ground as I had hoped. Around two the Ararat crew bid us farewell and Rusty, Lance and I pushed on. We got back to the cars just after four. Was a good solid day of riding. Lance and I went and got some firewood and the sunset. We set up camp had a few beers and reminisced on the days adventure. Sunday After a good night's rest we were back into it . Dann Eric and Al showed up and away we went . Lance pulled our early, still weary from yesterday ride. Al got his bike stuck in a tree on land rover hill Dann made short work of TV Rocks As did Eric Back at the cars just after 3 4000m in elevation and 65km covered. Another solid day of formidable riding with formidable riders. Thanks everyone for coming... Was good to meet you Al and great to catch up again everyone else. I hope you liked it . I love it
  9. You cant let out air to resolve a no grip situation.
  10. I might of dropped a cylinder head bolt washer down the timing case on a rebuild and just grabbed another after looking for ages in a messy shed. It ran fine for a few hours till the washer got caught in the timing gear and then the timing chain skipped a beat or three and then the valves lunched on the piston destroying cylinder , head, valves and piston and rings. To be towed back to cars on DRZ ride. Do I win?
  11. No one uses moose where I ride. Is there a reason?
  12. I think it would be a pretty safe bet to think your clutch would get a bit more than normal use. Did you have the adjustable via Wi-Fi Athena ignition and did it make usable differences? The ability to be able to find someone if not oneself, that can tune a carby to a riders desired requirements virtually anywhere isnt something a preset computer with no options will replace anytime soon.
  13. Good report Buzz, My mate ran in his new 300 in today . The bike got a little bit Tallarised, Before leaving the car park we found 1 loose barkbuster nut which was tightened on the spot Then on the ride 2 bash plate nut and spacer fell off. 3 headlight switch destroyed in a off, 4 fell out of gear once ( might of been foot or branch as it didn't do it again) , 5 foam on handle bar pad ripped and fell off , 6 dropped six times, 7 new scratches, 8 stickers started falling off 9 half a tank of fuel at 28 km for the day in 6 hours .. 10 - 1 bruised leg. I think the bike survived perfectly well and it will be fine. New owner was grinning all day and that's all that matters. Maybe float height is a little to high or the bit in the middle of the tank is bigger than it looks or it layed down longer than it should of
