  1. Those 2 bikes are chalk and cheese mate.... The ttr will be way less maintenance but is heavy and depending on the type of riding you do, how often you do it and how quickly you advance, you'll find its limitations at some point.... YZ's are great bikes BUT they are motocross bikes and as such not always ideal in the bush - unless of course you either spend a bit of coin setting up the suspension, changing the rear wheel to an 18" and looking at the hearing - or quickly become a gun! If your preference is blue then you're best bet at this point is probably a WR250F.... Still heavier then the YZ, and a little more maintenance than the TTR but it's a true enduro bike and have a reputation as a great bike....
  2. No clash with Gough's... Easter is the 19th to 22nd (with Anzac Day the same week!) I'll be in Adelaide for the Easter Classic (basketball) - if not for that then I reckon there wouldn't be a better way to spend the Easter break!
  3. I'm gonna guess he's reducing the diameter of the old bearing to use for knocking in the new ones??
  4. It's been a big couple of weeks for my poor old Kato.... It visited TSP for a top end, had the barrel replated, head modified and ignition modified... I removed the forks and had them serviced (thanks twisti) Fitted a new front tyre in preparation for the now cancelled big River weekend (thanks again twisti - me changing fronts with tubliss just doesn't work!) Replaced the head stem bearings (thanks again to twisti for removing the lower bearing) Repacked the muffler Had the expansion chamber blown back into shape (a few weeks back now) Fitted a new force pipe guard and baseplate combo Flushed the brake and clutch fluids out... Now just need to grease up the swingarm... Now I just need to try and ride more than the half a dozen or so rides that I managed to do over the past 18 or so months!
  5. Nice looking bike - congrats

    good luck guys
  7. like Cruiser I just use a tap/hose for most of my bike washing - the exception being that on really muddy rides I'll take my weed sprayer full of truck wash (CT18 currently) with me and spray the bike once loaded on the trailer, I'll then stop on the way home at a car wash and give it a blast to get the bulk of the mud off (better there than in my yard!) but i avoid the bearings etc... I then give it a better go at home....
  8. Didn't even think of putting it beside my bladder, I use a 3 litre bladder so automatically pictures it in one of the side pockets
  9. If anyone's looking for a good setup for getting away with their riding family, friends of mine in Adelaide are selling this....
  10. Nahhh.... I think you've just got a really small hand! I did look at some bigger ones but was conscious of size in my flight vest!
  11. This thread got me thinking about saws and the fact that I don't carry one.. there have been a couple of occasions where people on my rides have pulled out a saw to do some maintenance which has been great so I thought I'd join the club whilst I was at Bunnings today... I wear a flight vest so didn't want to get anything too big so figured this was a good size (works a treat too! $29.95
