    Took the aliexpress rip-off Renthal bar pad off and can now see the dash alot easier. Fixed the broken tacho wire so thats working again Rear brake was shithouse but having no fluid in it wasn’t helping, a flush and a bleed now its locking up nicely if you stomp on it. Just been for my 1st proper ride for about 50ks and man its good fun. Need proper gear and a decent helmet asap plus some ear plugs cause its pretty loud at any speed

    Hot dang! I was having a dig through the box of spares that came with WR and theres a couple of camshafts in there, a quick google of the part number on the exhaust cam and the fact it has an auto decomp mechanism thingy on it make me think its a HotCams aftermarket item which is excellent score as fitting that makes starting these things 10000 times easier than having to fuuuu round with the decomp lever. It has a bit of surface rust on it from storage but a soak in some vinegar should clean it up nicely Along with all the other bits in the parts collection including a factory service manual and some spare front sprockets to change the ratio is making this an even better value for money purchase

    Added a bigdog dirt scooter to the nang collection today although this one does more of a brap than a nang. Im impressed to be honest for my first proper big bike. Has some fancy bits like a Trailtec Vapor Dash thats needs to be mounted so I can see it better plus get the tach working, aftermarket bars and some shiny bits on the engine. Came with a pile of spares and dirt rims with brand new tyres which will be handy when I wanna go adv boomer biking

    Top tip for doing wrap is coat your arms and hands with talcum powder. The fine granules fill your pores stopping the fibreglass strands from hooking in there which is the cause of the itch. Works great for doing house insulation too

    This would have to be the coolest of my 2T brap collection A 72' Kawasaki G4TR with hi/lo 5 speed box, been in the family since new being purchased by my uncle to punt round his kiwifruit orchard then languished in a shed for years. Been rego'd at some point so would be cool to get a plate back on it Was last running around 10 years ago but this is the main issue that needs fixing

    At a loss with what to do about the TS and its motor being a cunt really. Im over fucking round with the 50cc so the only option is go bigger displacement but still wanna stay 2T. Next step will be go have a geez at a JR80 to see how the bolt to frame/measure size but they have an offset exhaust port too which could be an issue or maybe a RM80 engine/dunno

    TS went bang again which was dumb so decided to see if a mudbug motor would fit, purchased a TF125 and stripped it down with a few parts going to a mate to resurrect his one. Got off to a good start with magneto and sprocket off the TS engine going straight onto the 125 block but then when it came to engine going into the frame things didnt go so good. Motor fits the frame but only just and the offset exhaust port lines up perfectly with the front of the frame so thats not going to work without fucking with the frame which I dont want to do. So purchased another one from Fielding for the lowlowprice of $150. Bit rough and ready but perfect for just nanging round on, few things on it to tidy up and get lights working etc luckily I have the other one to swap bits from. Interestingly it has a VIN on it and shows up in carjam so could be made road legal. Its going off to live down Hicks Bay as a hunting/fishing nang machine so WOF aint really required lols
