Re: Replica OW01 Kit triples.

I've got a set of OW01 Ohlin's clamps on the way now as well.

50mm upper and 53mm lower? Dunno, they are due to arrive, next week.

Then next time I have a fist full of cash I'll do the replicas (some of each. Stem and collets should be the same... :crazy:

Re: FZR 600R project

Very Handy Dave.

Can you double check the number stamped into the headstock?

There must be something missing here as nothing is coming up.

Exactly as it is stamped. :thumbup:

Re: FZR 600R project

hey pondlife, welcome. If you either post or pm the frame vin I can search the old Yamaha database. (thanks Cam) I reckon you will have FZRDude drooling at the colour scheme of your 600... :lol: if you look at the number or letter stamped into the frame after the prefix of 3HE you will be able to de...

Re: New family member

haha. it's deceiving. These are a very strong little aircraft. They are rated at +6 -4 g's In the positive that means the airframe will take 2 tons of downward pressure. At 6 g's my body weighs 6 times it's static weight (which is a bit these days :lolno: ) I'll be able to enjoy entry level competit...

Billet bits

Here is an interesting link to a company that has been under my nose, but never knew about. Billet t6 FZR-YZF clutch baskets, alt block off plates, cable clutch kits, and some other stuff. The basket, with rivets for people overseas is $405 australian dollars! That is like 4 american dollars... :lol...

Re: CycleTerminal

Great site, and some interesting stuff on there. I didn't know about them.

Are they in england? Covid may have something to do with it??? A couple of organisations I deal with here, have gone under due to Covid and the lockdowns. Shame really. It's taking its toll in more ways than one. Cheers

Re: New family member

Well the Husaberg is gone. However, I got distracted...again. This one is gonna be like a motorcycle with wings. :D Single seat AeroPup. It's a little bush plane! It came with a fresh zero hour BMW1200S motor (120hp) and a prop reduction drive. They perform really well with 80hp! These are incredibl...

I'd love to have a 996 but doubt I could ride it given my neck and back problems.
Yeah, they're kind of brutal in that department Tim. I'd probably just settle for the old Ferrari next to it! :D

Re: Breather

It looks a bit like a honda type nc400 rc30 type breather. due to the fact it is already succumb to vice grips. Wash the fuel out, heat it up with a propane torch. Tighten first then undo. If that fails, slit the fitting with a dremel. That will relieve the tension and it will come off. All the best...

not sure I would adhere to those too well, although I pretty much am as I'm always working on this damned house or picking up supplies for it.
two months later, and restrictions here as per last Sunday have been eased. We can travel up to 25 km now :roll:

Re: Computer HDD

Those old high energy spinning things? Why do you prefer?

I moved to SSD a couple of years ago. Blindingly fast, and no failures. No moving parts either, lower power usage etc.

I had a couple of old style drives fail... Not happy!
