  1. dang 13bhp, nice way to make some sweet power
  2. Yeah get a trailtech vapor, reliable speed, rpm and cylinder temp. I have a stage6 version too on another bike which is a good alternative. Over 200 degrees is into trouble territory, above 215 is super danger zone, hard riding on long straights should put you around 180-190 in the middle of summer
  3. new street magic tyres arrived, wonder how much worse road riding will be shinko mobber 504 and 505
  4. Anyone know who can convert rims to beadlockers in auckland?
  5. well since bort is bringing a 50cc, I'll be bringing my street magic. Last time my bottom was punished, so this time I will be trying to roll without a pack and strap a bag to the back of the bike. Hepefully it will be more reliable this time and with some knobbly tyres
  6. Is there a list of whos coming and what size bikes they are riding? pretty keen to bring my street magic again, but if its clearly going to be the slowest then would consider my faster more city style scooter
  7. hey guys I have a couple of 2 wire DC motors I want to get plugs for, so they can be removed easily. I have tried bullet connectors but they just arent up to the task, and this isnt being fitted into a car so not really suitable. Whats the next step up in plugs, something screw together? Its for 24V 15A
  8. its just all over the place, carburettor is pretty well isolated, but still getting alot of corrosion, may be because of poor material quality, or could be all the shit coming off the road
  9. sweet will look into it, you guys get aerosol cans or a spray bottle?
  10. Got a couple of scooters that live outside in the rain, they keep getting that white powdery stuff covering all of the aluminium parts like carburettors and engine casings. Whats a decent way to stop that from occuring, doesnt look like they would last more than a few years without any sort of protection. There is no way to stop them getting wet
  11. Is 22 devices on a WiFi router heaps? I just thought it related back to the amount of addresses it could give out in total? So 255 would be max? I’m not a computer expert at all but that’s what I figured. I have had problems logging onto WiFi at some sites recently and I thought they had run out of addresses, but maybe that isn’t the case? Also, would an industrial network system have the same issues?
  12. It’s a “50cc”, so it’s road legal always
  13. you need to pull everything apart, then you will realise how easy it all is compared to anything car related

    I have some surface rust under the front gaurds on my escort, I have removed the underseal where it is not super adhered to the steel any more as where it is still stuck the metal is good underneath it. I have put some crc rust converter on the areas but want to either brush on 2 pot or brush on underseal on the area. The area is probably 70% old underseal still in reasonable nick (and really hard to remove, and why would I remove good underseal), and the other 30% is where the rusty bits were. What do you guys reckon I should do? 2 pot paint the various areas? paint everything including the old underseal? underseal the bare bits?
