  1. What about putting in a tank sealer kit like the POR15 product. They work well in a metal tank but do not know if it would stick to the plastic. I have also heard of people using a mixture of plumbing primer and glue used for PVC plumbing pipes.
  2. Trying to replace water pump seal. Have pa separate post about it.
  3. Trying to get the water pump seal out of my '12 Husky WR300. I do not think it has ever been changed and I have pretty much destroyed it trying to get it out but it is still stuck in. Any tips on getting it out. It looks like it has a metal outer ring that is pressed into the case - but not sure if that part comes out or not. The rubber bits are just tearing apart. I was wondering if I could some how get a bent flat screwdriver behind it and pry it out. Any ideas or suggestions?
  4. There is as review of the CTI's on the forum here somewhere. In my opinion PODS are next best after custom CTI's - are Aussie owned and can be used for other sports including water sports. I have Leatt carbon C-frames
  5. I was off the bike for around 6 months. Got on the road bike first then took it easy returning to dirt. Did not get on the dirt bike until after getting knee braces. I took the post surgery physio pretty seriously and worked hard at it - so had a good recovery. If the professional footy players can get back playing footy after around 8months post surgery why shouldn't I be able to get back on the bikes around the same time. Your body will tell you when you are ready to get back on the bike. Believe it or not - depending on your life style and what you want out of the surgery you can
  6. Know anyone with a lathe? Could make your own custom spacers. There is nothing that can't be solved with time and money.
  7. Knee braces as mentioned will not stop all knee injuries but if it prevents 1 acl injury they would have paid for themselves. I personally rank knee braces as follows: CTi - they seem to be the gold standard, POD K8's - these are an Australian owned company and they can be used for other sports as well as motorcycle riding then Leatt's - which I wear. Mobius / Astrix etc next. Lucky for me TAC paid for mine, but was not sure if they would cover the cost so the Leatt was what I could afford at the time. They are full adjustable for fit as well as having extension stops. Have not n
  8. I really wanted to go on this ride and meet some of you in person. I have lead a few 4wd trips through Tallarook over the years and have always wanted to take the bike there. When doing ride reports is it possible to list the named tracks you have gone down? Rocky track, Magazine track, the Tehan tracks are all good for the 4wd with Red Hill track being a favourite one but is best to go North to South and is full of deep ruts - it has been awhile since i drove it and last I heard there is a gate at the south end.
  9. Only watched the RedBull highlights. I always find it amazing that after around 20hrs of riding over 4 days the top two finishers are only a couple of minutes apart. Sandra Gomez has become the first female to finish Romaniacs Gold Class.
  10. My 2C's, I wanted to get back into dirt bikes after being off them since my teens. My son out grew his JR80, and we settled on a Husky 150XC for both of us. He has been enjoying it for the past 3 years. I moved onto a 300 so we could ride together and not have to share a bike. A 150 or 200 would be a great step up for your son, and when he outgrows it he should be in a position to buy his own! (That is what I am hoping for with my son)
  11. Cut my teeth on a Yamaha DT80 then went for the three wheeler - Honda ATC 110. Put that poor thing through hell and kept on going. Only engine work it had done to it was a new cam chain. I would hate to guess how many hours I put on it. There were not too many days that it did not get ridden.
  12. A few years ago their was an online petition to try and get a "junior License" with restrictions. Argument was you can get junior license for boating and hunting and can get a pilots license at ??15 or 16. In Canada and the USA you can get your car / motorcycle licence at 16. Some states learners start at 14.
  13. I did mine and had surgery. Did three months physio prior to surgery - wanted to try physio first as I know a few people that were happy with the outcome from physio and did not get surgery. I did not realise how weak my muscles were until I started physio. Had the op and had a real good recovery period. I believe the physio prior to surgery helped in my recovery. My wife has been living a very active lifestyle for past 10years with a complete ACL rupture. I am going to presume you did your ACL not riding?
  14. Yep, rain will turn the easiest track into one of the hardest.
  15. Cruiser, looks like a fantastic job. Did you consider building a slide out ramp from underneath the van? or will you just carry a ramp inside?
