  1. Thanks Macca, USA ebay might be the way to go. They spoke to a Honda dealer and apparently you can get pre 95 and 2000 onwards but those 4 years in the middle don't need new tanks because no one is making them.
  2. Hi all, hoping someone can help. My cousin's kid was given a 99 XR100r an xmas or 2 ago and now the tank is cracking. They've called around to places but apparently the spare part isn't made anywhere at all anymore and repair is impossible due to the brittle plastic. Is the only option getting a custom tank made or is there another possibility to get a replacement that fits neatly without much hassle? Thanks in advance.
  3. Would be great if they can disable that stupid 'open in app or continue in this browser' prompt. I don't want no stinkin apps! Otherwise I do prefer the older style. Ot was fine.
  4. The only place that might sound as cool would be Ukrainiacs or Germaniacs. They have mountains too.
  5. Just watched this beauty, awesome cinematography and obviously, riding. https://tubitv.com/movies/513490/rare_exception
  6. First three eps are pretty good. I was hooked on the original 2 series and the Dakar that Charlie did. The trip itself looks pretty easy without the hassle of electric bikes, must have done their head in to be riding so slowly on pristine highways.
  7. Are we there yet? Will probably leave the house tomorrow for my weekly 'gotta go outside for some reason'. At the moment I'm all Rocky Bobby, I just wanna go fast!
  8. Yes because cyclists and runners never get hit by cars or trucks or trams... Honestly, this bloke is just repeating the drivel he's fed from higher up. There's no real thought or data analysis in what he's been fed.
  9. Oil was black and appeared to be the same consistency as the stuff going in, definitely no water. When I checked the coolant in Jan it was fine. Overflow tank looks normal (never moves much). When I did the change I didn't warm up the bike but it had been sitting since November. Always turn the fuel off and saw the tap was in the off position. Could it be that last time when I did the oil warm it didn't all drain out because it was in one of the pipes going to the strainer or something?
  10. So today I go and change the oil and filter on my 06 WR450F. Drain into oil pan as normal. Put the plug back in, filter change etc. Refill with 1.1L as per manual. Then I get the old oil, put it into a 1.25L and it overflows! Get another bottle and mop up the spill because I just assumed it can't be more than the 1.2L the book states. All up I estimate 1.4L came out, maybe a touch more. I definitely didn't overfill last time (1.1L as per book) and never topped it up. Anyone got any ideas??
  11. Looks like everyone had a blast, what a team! Very sad not to make this one. Only got back from QLD on Wednesday super late but had a bit of the flu that's still attached to me so couldn't get my shit together in time unfortunately. I'll put up a lazy Labertouche level 1 ride as soon as I can get well and my bike serviced etc. Cheers, Kris
  12. Rounding up any type of animal on a 2 stroke sounds like a challenge and also deafening.
