  1. Thanks for the info cluffie,sorta makes sence,the fmf mega bomb dosnt seem to make a great deal of difference at this stage,but iv only been testing the different gearing down the creek and not out on the enduro loops I ride, the 13-52 gearing was the same with the pipe so I started playing with gearing hoping with the pipe I could pull higher gearing, I think it did,the 14-52 was very strong and the front wheel just wanted to lift, I did like this setup,but I'm going to have to test the bike out in the hills silly question but how do I richen up the bottom end, remapping ? thanls again for the all the info
  2. Hi love this 350club im 55 and just got back into riding,iv had 10 years off ,I'm riding a ktm 350exc 16 model and I love it,best bike iv owned, iv had it 5 months,iv put a fmf full system mega bomb on it,Msc steering damper and now playing around with the gearing since iv added the pipe,currently running 13-50,but I did run 14-52,the add ons have made this bike even better and love the steering damper, Technology has come along way in the last 10 years
  3. The Perfect Bike trailer

    I just brought this enclosed trailer for a good price I think $4.500 I love it and makes life so much easier carting all the gear around,it's hand made from a caravan chassis and can carry 2ton,Im in the process of setting up a 240volt solar system,can't wait for a few over nighters with the bikes

  10. Bleeding rear break line

    Haha should be easier next time bones
  11. Bleeding rear break line

    Well we got it done finally,the new brake line is made if rubber and it was bulging so that made it abit more difficult,we had the hand pump set up wrong it was leaking abit of air,that was causing a few dramas aswell,once we worked out how that worked we got pressure but was still a slow process ,thanks again for the help
  12. Bleeding rear break line

    Thanks for the tips boys,we will try the reverse way,we were talking about trying that last night,the break line has been made up its not a geniun part,it could be a tiny bit bigger, could be why we had trouble yesty,so the reverse way I'm keen to try thanks again
  13. Hi spent 3 hrs today trying to bleed a new rear break line and had no luck,it's my mates wr450,and it's doing our heads in,we were booked in for a ride tomorrow but at this stage it's off,we will have another try in the morning,but think there could be something wrong,we did borrow a pump of another mate but that's only pulling abit of air out,he's using a c4 break fluid oil,from suoer cheap,could this be the problem Any tips would be a great cheers
  14. Set the sag

    Thanks for the feed back Dazz,appreciated,deffently will have to look into getting new springs,the spring is now wound down easily 3/4 of the way down from the top,be interesting how it goes,I have softened the settings up,so hopefully its ok,I haven't had the bike very long and I didn't like the front end,it was very twitchy and light till I softened the front up,I only go hard in patches and knock up,and I was happy with the bike,but I think new springs front and back it will be heaps better,thanks again for your help
  15. Set the sag

    I haven't had this bike very long,it's been set up for an 85kg rider (krooztune) I'm 101kgs,the front end was very light and twitchy I had no confidence on it,the front compression clicker was set on 6 and the rebound on 4,iv changed that out to compression 14 and rebound on 11,made a huge difference to the front end,the rear spring I wound in 4 turns to give me 135 sag,till yesty I wound it another 3/4,to give me 115mm of sag,going off krooztune web site they say this is ok, The sag without me on it is only 2cm,,so I think I need a heavier spring going off the krooztune figures on there site Any predictions what the back end will do from winding in the sag from 130 to 115, will I notice a difference?
