    Sold my KX 250, now on to the KDX200 to get it on the market. Anyone got a tank for a H/J model (95-05)?

    Latte for the win

    The dgr wasn’t officially on due to COVID restrictions, only small groups rides were allowed , we had 15 bikes in our group, but when we stopped on mt cootha , that number swelled to 200 as other rides joined up

    it was heaps of fun to dress up and ride foe a good cause , I will definitely do it again

    Did the 40,000Km service on my CF Moto 650TK.
    For the last couple of months it has been starting on one cylinder for a couple of beats before the second chimes in to run smoothly. I thought it might be valves having not enough clearance and when I checked them one was loose, five were too tight and one inlet had NO clearance at all (out of 8). This would be the one causing the missfire until it got a few revs to over come the leakage past the valve.
    Shims shuffled and had to buy two new ones to get them all where they should be. Also replaced the fuel filter, spark plugs, cleaned air filter, changed engine oil and filter, lubed throttle cables and got it all back together. Started first hit of the button on BOTH cylinders so got the gauges and synced the throttle butterflies.
    Should be set for another 40,000Km.

    Stole some parts from the old bike to put on the new bike, Air pipes, Intake pipe from fairing to airbox, fixed pillion seat, adjusted rear preload for my fatass, drained the oil, removed the oil filter, removed some terrible stickers that the PO put on it, Lubed the chain, inflated the tires, still trying to find a cam chain tensioner or suitable non-OE replacement, tidied up the workshop, and got the old bike back together and running.

    Then I listed the old one on facebook for sale. Holy ****. I am getting a new ping every 2-3 minutes with people offering me lowball offers, weed, meth, (obviously stolen) shoes, all manner of stolen electronics, icloud locked iphones, on and on it goes, I have one guy coming to take a look tomorrow, who says he is bringing cash, and if he flakes there is a dismantler who wants to give me asking price for it.

    I accidentally did that. I rode my bike to church, so I was dressed up and riding my bike this morning. That counts, right?

    Oh, and this was Friday:

    Drag bike engine has poor compression in one cylinder, so I'm trying to scrape together a second motor just in case. Decided to try and build a test bed for engines, so I don't have to go to all the hassle of putting one in a frame. Stage 1 is to be able to do a cold compression test and also check the oil pump is working. So far so good. I've wired a battery into a circuit with a starter switch (from local Supercheap), so I can run the engine on the starter motor.

    I can see this developing into a full blown brake dyno :)

    Hmm, a brake dyno, you say? Sounds less complicated and more compact than the water pump idea I had...

    Both are mere multiplication of the 2 factors: pressure and flow rate for the pump, torque and rev for the brake - with a 2Pi constant factor.

    A brake dyno is the only way to go.
    I have thought about building one on many occasions.
    The stumbling block for me is noise control.
    I would like to remain friendly with my neighbours.
