  1. I just bought a pair of K4 Pods and had my first ride in them today. I was worried about them being bulky, but after a few minutes I forgot I was wearing them. They are more comfortable than the hinged guards I was wearing before. Very happy so far. The new X-Frame Leatt braces look very similar but use a geared hinge instead of the ligaments in the Pods.
  2. Yeah big thanks to Greasa and Wayward for leading this one. I didn't know what to expect for my first Dirtriderz ride, but I had a great day and looking forward to the next one.
  3. Well done for getting it sorted BigFella. I did mine at Heatherton. Feels good to have it done. Can't wait to go riding this weekend.
  4. I just had mine inspected this morning. I had everything wired up including a cheap LED number plate light from ebay. None of it was checked though. I guess the question is whether you want to risk the inspection fee.
  5. I needed to go through the carb and give it a good clean, but it's running well now. It seemed like a good idea to head to the MX track for a first test. First time on a track in 30 years came as a bit of a shock. Anyway the bike and I both survived, so rec reg next week and then I'll be looking for some trails to get started on.
  6. Cheers mate. Sounds like you're having a blast. It's alive. Running a bit rough at idle, but hoping that's just a matter of dirty pilot jet or mixture screw adjustment. Booked in for the 4th for rec reg inspection, so should be in action after that.
  7. I got my engine back together last night after a looong wait for my piston to arrive. Fingers crossed I'll be able to get her fired up tonight and then I just need to get the rego sorted out. I can't wait to get out there.
  8. I will be following this thread. The anodising on my fork uppers is pitted, and the price I've been quoted doesn't seem to bad to get them stripped back and re-done.
  9. Hi Macca, I was looking into the idea of heading to Toolangi and came across this. Thought you might be interested. Trail Bike Riding – Toolangi and Black Range State Forest
  10. There's a DT180z at this site that looks like it has the same dimensions. If it's ergonomics you're interested in it may help. http://cycle-ergo.com/
  11. Welcome. It seems like there are a few of us getting back into it after many years off. I had a YZ80L back in the day. That's it in my avatar at Broadford many years ago.
  12. Fingers crossed they will arrive this week. Probably need minimum 2 weeks to get it all buttoned up and rec rego done. I can't do midweek, but I should be able to get a leave pass on Sundays.
  13. Hey guys, I'm still waiting for my piston and valves to arrive from the US, otherwise I would have been keen to join also.
  14. Well, it's no surprise from what I've been reading about CRF valves, but I think it should run better with some new ones......!
  15. Thanks guys. I can't wait to get going. Still undecided on the rego. I think I might get started on rec reg and only upgrade if it's limiting my options. I commute by road bike, so it would be nice to have another registered bike just in case. We'll see...it might depend on how complete my box of ADR parts is.
