  1. Thank you. The gas gas was an '18 and still sorta fell apart. Seems it may have been one of the' 17 built '18's with mismanaged quality control. Regardless I've noticed some big differences.. It's more point and shoot with the husky, managing traction much better. Front wheel is far lighter and stability all around. Hopefully I'll be able to finally get to the top Of 3rd gear hill.
  2. Thanks mate this is the reassurance I needed. Bottom end went on the Gasgas (99 hours) and I've now got a '17 TE300. Absolutely stoked with it so far.
  3. Morning all, Happy public holiday. Doing my first front and rear sprocket change. Everything is set to reinstall, however I'm unsure about a couple of points. (1) how necessary is replacing the bolts both front and rear? Both ends have 60 hours of use and seem in fine condition. (2) manual specs 2701 loctite which is over $100 a bottle. Are there any alternative options that work the same? Hope to catch up for a ride on my new(ish) bike sometime. Thanks
  4. G'day mate, Just picked up a bike that you've done the suspension on previously. Will be booking in for a service at some point in the near future. Cheers
  5. I've got (hopefully) a short benching starting yesterday. Double lower wisdom tooth extraction due to infection and impacted teeth. Had it done y'day at 1pm and I'm not feeling too horrible currently. Pain in tolerable. Worst part is the cost.. With no private health it's set me back roughly $3500 which mostly now owe the bank. Add in a swollen knee and lower back pain from Sundays wildwood ride and I'm actually thinking a week or 2 off might be a good idea at this point. Managed 80 hrs on the new Gasser since August '18 and have barely missed a weekend. Here's to a quick recovery and another glorious 80 hours before August!
  6. I agree it was a top ride. Thanks for organising @Petch and @ScOtTTy for leading most of the day. Thanks @Petch for letting me have a blast on the 350 also... Got me thinking if 4 strokes are the way forward The second arvo loop was a killer session of 3rd gear hill and a few hamburgers that saw most of us tapped out by 2:00. Except @Evros (Stavros) who wanted to keep going when we got back to the cars. One more ride before I finally take 2 weeks off for wisdom tooth surgery. Who's up for Wildwood next Sunday?! Someone's gotta show me how to get around that bloody prologue circuit.
  7. Thanks Andy for organising and leading and stinky for sweeping. Great to see some old mates and new faces. Even better to see another very intelligent person riding a GasGas. I'll leave you with a quote from Tank Abbott, aka Andy's doppelgänger
  8. Hi mate, thank you for the offer but unfortunately I don't have an 18" rim for the Honda. I'm sure someone will snap it up though.
  9. Hi fellas, I'm going to kit up the crf450r for the flat track day. Just looked into a trials tire for the 19" rear and they're $195.94 brand new. That's kinda more than I'd hoped to spend. If anyone has a second hand tire sitting around I'd love to purchase it.
  10. I came here to post exactly this. Thanks heaps Pete, you're a legend and I owe you that beer!
  11. After downloading the workshop manual for a 2008 CRF450R, then studying the wiring diagram, then spending the past few hours trying to re-install the (brutally butchered) removed rec reg kit to see if it will work, I've thrown in the towel for the day. Please let me know what is your favourite flavour of beer. My initial offer is 3 cases of said flavour as it'll cost me far more if I take it to a shop. Also, the trip to Lara would be grouse.
  12. Tequilllllllllllllllllla
  13. I'm always down for a new experience. Keep me updated mate.
