  1. Well put a new battery in and still got the same response from the starter motor. Its due for someone with more knowledge than me to do some work on it, so into the workshop it goes.
  2. Level 2, Wombat East, 12/11/17

    Thanks for putting on the ride and leading Lockheed. Your right when you say the ride flowed well, seemed to only be on a corner for a matter of minutes. Thanks to the sweeps !Thumper and IanM, it was a dusty ride at the back of the pack. Nice mix of tracks to keep the ride interesting, and being my first time out that side, it certainly won't be my last. Until next time
  3. No need to be nasty
  4. I put a new spark plug in before the ride . I will try a new battery before I get into the nitty grit's.
  5. Hi all, Went on a ride today and after pulling up and stopping the engine for about 5 minutes, I could not start the bike again with the e start or kick start. E start sounded like it was just spinning the starter and not engaging and the kick start would not budge. Roll started the bike and rode back to the cars. Tried the E start again and it still wouldn't start but I could now engage the kick start, but it felt like it was never going to start. Before pulling the starter apart and scratching my head, anyone heard of this happening and if so have a fix?

    Welcome to the forum Abdul, I may just see you around.
  7. Tallarook Bliss

    Antmor asked and Bear delivered. 10 of us set of for a cruisey? (not really a word according to the thesaurus, but we'll go with it anyway) Sunday ride around Tallarook. Bear led us around a variety of tracks and kept it to the promised level 2 - 2+ experience, and got to experience the great views from the look out. Not to many gumby moments by the crew, which is always a good thing and no injuries. An uncooperative Husky that periodically refused to start, giving Odie a few headaches, and a lack of brake fluid on one of the other bikes had some pucker moments happening with no front brakes, until KennyB used some scientific way of syphoning fluid from some donor bikes to rectify the problem. Thanks to bear for leading and Baz450 for sweep duties. Thanks also to the rest of the gang, its always good to ride with people out to enjoy themselves. Until next time
  8. What Pisses Me Orf....!!

    Even worse, people who don't stop at a roundabout thinking the law says you have to give way to the right a roundabout, so go charging straight at your car with the horn blaring

  10. aventful lal lal .

    Thanks Cobraone for organising and leading and thanks to TB rider for sweeping. I was behind Dannox when he and his bike decided to explore unridden parts of Lal Lal and was quite impressed in his ability to let go of bike and leap for the edge of the hole....Hope the leg comes good soon. Good mix of tracks on the day and I did manage to get to the top of carnage hill....with some steadying from Bear and after launching the bike into a tree Lal Lal does offer some more treacherous obstacles after some rain and would love to have continued on after carnage hill, but with 7 creek crossings to complete after the hill, I believe we may of drowned a bike or two completing the ride. Dazz, I was one of the riders that appreciated your help on the log and kept going, but did position myself at the next obstacle to assist. Once again a great bunch of blokes (yet to go on a Dirtriderz ride and not enjoy the company), and the weather gods looked after us for the day. Quick bevy and a chat at the pub and the day was complete. Until next time
  11. Well I'd never been to the Pyrenees before, but a midweek call from Trailz had me keen to jump on the ride organised by Bear. Could only make it if the sprockets, chain and clutch cable I ordered during the week arrived (front sprocket was missing more teeth than the Collingwood cheer-squad), and thats exactly what was waiting for me when I got home from work on Friday, so on they went and off I went early Saturday morning. Arrived at the meet spot and as soon as the late comer arrived (Trailz enjoying his bed more than riding), we headed of to the hills. We met the first hill within 5 minutes of the ride and found that we may have a slippery ride ahead of us with the back slipping all over the place. Bear took us along some great tracks with long up and down hills, rocks, logs and some slippery sections. A trip up to the lookout (Trailz tried to launch his bike to the top without him on it) saw one of the tougher uphill climbs for the day catch a few out. Happy to stay upright in the conditions for the majority of the day and will be looking to venture out that way again when the opportunity arises. Bear (Mcgyver) managed to sort out a bike that didn't want to start, tyre pressures, start buttons and a clutch throughout the day, and was even contemplating whittling a lathe out of a fallen tree if needed for any other repairs. Thanks to Bear for putting on and leading the ride and Bad Badger for sweep duties. Also thanks to Trailz, Possum79, KennyB, CJ1and Farmer Brown for making a great group to ride with. Have a short video of Vince's bike (and his commentary of the event), but still trying to upload it without success.
  12. Took it for a spin

    Had the same experience when I jumped off my tt350 onto the wr450. Brown pants and longer arms after trying to hold on.
  13. Im interested in attending or participating on Facebook, something we all need to understand better
  14. Mt Dissa with Coggs and Co

    Got spoilt this week with Biggies ride on Sunday and then Coggs posting a ride. Not bad for someone who wasn't going to ride until November, but glad I got out on both days. Thanks Coggs for posting and leading us around the mount, and Gypsy501 for sweeping. Great mix of tracks again today, with a trip through the blue gums, up and over hamburger one and two, took a look at 3rd gear hill but left it to Gypsy and The General to show us how its done and then a couple of other flowing tracks to get back to the cars covering somewhere near the 50k mark for the day. First time riding with Gypsy501,The General and rwcfrank and have now been on a couple of Coggs rides. Hope its not the last as it was a most enjoyable day. Coggs and Frank having a break
  15. First of all thanks to Biggie for organising. Having not ridden since March and not intending to ride until November, due to work requirements, I saw Biggies ride come up and thought F@#k it, I need to go for a ride. First ride out at Chewton for me, even though I drive past it every time I go see the folks. Certainly won't be my last! Biggie led us on our merry way and we had a taste of what the Goldfields had to offer before we ended up at the bottom of Scorpio. Rider had a couple of goes at getting up, but didn't quite get it right. Then he showed what a good rider with perseverance can do and he preceded to go up twice while us not so skilful onlookers figured out what line to take on the chicken track. (which presented its own headaches). Rider took us down some tracks that may or may not have water flowing along them from time to time, and getting a little ambitious, had us all trying to turn bikes around within an area that if you swung a cat around above your head, it would be pretty sore afterwards. Few more tracks were ridden and then a bit of transport roads to get back to the cars, which was quite helpful to me, as I had to switch over to reserve on the way back (the pig was thirsty today). Thanks again to Biggie for organising, Biggie and Rider for leading (Karlo for getting us back to the cars at the end of the ride), Karlo for taking on sweep duties and Jetmani for being part of a fun day. We all got through the day unscathed, which was a relief after the last couple of rides there, more so for me both physically and mentally, as the wife would still be bitching now if I'd got hurt (happens a lot according to her) Until next time
