    Cheers.. I'm going to change the front springs anyway which will probably lift it about 10mm from its current height.. It was parked in a slight dip which tipped it forward.. It handles pretty good as it is, would lots better with new shocks.
  4. So a while ago( back in April) @M Night Shamalayan chucked up a for sale post for this delightful 72 Hunter.. turns out its a Super, with high back reclining seats and lots of chrome trim. I had a 69 Hunter as my first car, which I promptly rolled into a ditch 3 months later.. Ive wanted another pretty much ever since.. dont ask why cos I have no idea So as soon as I saw this post I jumped at it, with the car being in Wellington, Me living in Auckland, and potentially moving to Invercargill, I asked Luke if he could "hold on to it for a few weeks".. "sure" he said... well shit, I bought a house down south and we had a move in date... It just happened to happen the week before Hanmeet.. so the plan was made to do a mega mission of driving my ute and trailer down, fly back, drive my falcon and trailer down, then flying to Wellington, catch a bus, a train then walk up to his place to pick up a car ive never seen in person and then drive it to the ferry within 1hour... made it without breaking down, must be a record for me in a Hunter.. Got into picton and drove to Blenheim to take it for a wof... I was parked up at some park adjusting the front wheel bearings at 4am, as you do. go through the VTNZ check with a few things... headlight low beam was blown.. balls... cant find anything off the shelf... so I carried on to Hanmer... car drove bloody well.. EVERY time I stopped there was some Barry coming up to me with a story about a Hunter, was getting a bit much when I was filling up with fuel to look out the window and some random sitting behind the wheel pining over their youth... Got to Hanmer, met some OS GC's, good weekend... then the big mission of driving to Invercargill via Wanaka to check out another project.. Car ran so good, but blew a flange gasket which pumped fumes into the cabin.. that sucked.. Got into Wanaka and found it sprung a leak of the slippery stuff...fuck it, carry on son! Made it to Invers and in total she had lost 500ml of the Iraqi gold. List of shit to do for a wof: Headlight - find one from somewhere Rebuild the calipers - large brake inbalance and the remote booster has been removed Apparently there needs some steering box adjustment, although they dont have any adjuster..may have to play round with shims etc... Shit I want to do: Fit the escort rostyles Fit twin carbs Definitely replace all 4 shocks that are FAAAAARKED! when you go around corners the mudflaps drag on the ground, check pics for body roll travel, its lots Weld on a seat adjuster lever so the drivers seat can recline again Paint - maybe? Hope to get it wof'd asap and go for a hoon legally.. So massive thanks to @M Night Shamalayan and his mrs for putting up with the car for so long..

    Big thanks to @crustywhip for the bosskit, finally got to scale down the bus sized steering wheel... its pretty manky but will do for now. im loving the stance it has at the moment, still need to put filters on the carbs and put a resister on the coil terminal for the tacho feed as the needle jumps erratically.

    plan to sell the 450, its way too fast for how I like to ride.. so if anyone in interested give me an offer.. also going to sell the 85, just had a new piston thrown in..hasnt even been run in yet.

    Sooooooo I may have had a brain fart and bought a 96 RM250 with a damaged clutch hub and gearbox issues.. And finding reasonably priced parts is impossible... Im banking on replacing all the bearings inside the engine, seals, gaskets, o rings, piston and rings if theyr out of spec.. Its definitely one angry sounding mofo.. Not sure if ill keep it and rebuild it or just flick it as a project... depends if I can get hold of another clutch sleeve hub for a good price, and not have to replace any gears in it..

    the kit I got worked out to way cheaper than just sourcing the bolts. ill run it as it for now and make 50mm blocks later. need to get hold of some early ford front springs for the front first.

    For shits n giggles.. Original springs are 370mm, cut springs are 250mm. Cut springs are most likely not hunter springs anyway. On the lookout for some escort/Capri or Sierra springs to fit in it.. Front shocks are so pooh it's not funny.

    Trimmed up the spare dash fascia with some vinyl.. mounted and wired the gauges. Got the twin port oil fitting in for the oil temp and pressure gauges.. Waiting on a reducer for the water temp, should arrive tomorrow Then only need 1 terminal to wire the tachometer. Good timing as it needs to run to be able to move it to storage hopefully if I can find something local.
  14. anyone know where to find a twin choke cable "dual control"??

    Any of you good folk (otago/southland) ride dirt bikes? Need to get out on some cool rides, better to have a decent group to go with. Went up to Shepherds Creek Hut the other day. Good fun

    I almost died on the 450 the other day, caning along and mustve hit a grassy ridge/wheel track edge, front wheel was on the right, rear went to the left, massive step out, mustve been laying over at a 45 degree angle, stayed on the pegs.. I actually thought I was going down hard, but she gripped and stood back up.. was almost a speedway moment, I got off the throttle for the rest of the day haha... im sure it was like that for 40m cos I had time to watch the ground for impact points..unreal
  18. @Mr Vapour what gate motors are you using?
  19. @Mr Vapour, the guy I was using at my last job turned out to be a useless prick..Wouldn't turn up etc. Are they all connected to power and you just need them to work off a single remote? My last job I did in auckland was 3 automated gates on one property..I installed all the automation myself and had them running off a single remote (6 remotes in total for the household). Pm me if you need any help

    Took the yz into the Eyre mountains today after going to QT to do a site visit. 20km return, about 12 river crossings, plenty of washouts.. good fun. The 4spd box is shit for trails though with the long 1st (wide ratio).. Barely got past 2nd most of the way. Stalled the bitch in a river crossing, think it sucked in a bit of water through the rocker vent hose, oil is now milky. Drain it tomorrow and checked it's all good.

    Offloaded the 135 in a straight swap for a yzf450, we'll see how this goes. It's a much tidied bike overall, nothing appears to be hacked like the 125

    By piss tune I mean with no special tools.. Sync by air, adjust mixtures, use the air piston test, get it to a rich over condition.. Nice and ready to go to some old Barry with a colourtune/gunson set/actual sync meter stuff It could be worse, I could've used the twin 175s over the stock single 150, I think the twin 150s are enough, hell the gls/gt hunters came out with twin 40 sidedraughts. Almost time to drop the 40 over pistons into it and get the cam done, shave the head a few thou, chuck in a fresh rod set
