Chopped my 18 month old dirt bike in for a new one of exactly the same bike . Sounds v dull but it's a cracking bike and my spare wheels /tools and parts will all swap over. The old one had 130 hard racing hours on it so was due piston , clutch , chassis bearings etc so I decided on a shiny new one again .
Ran it in today and all oils changed ready for two days trail riding on the iom next week - can't wait

Dear Mumsnet    Filth!  oh the Filth      green? waxcotton last worn attempting to ride an ex WD B40 from near Hamburg to Morocco many years ago so a mix of incontinent engine oil, road filth, wax and dead insects.  Is there some way to drastically clean waxed cotton without destroying a washing machine?

Does it really need washing?

Upon wearing the garment where the slime coating on the slimecotton has seeped into the woollen lining all my clothes are slowly being waterproofed and have the wonderful rancid dead mouse / wet cardboard aroma which envelops me for the rest of the day.

It should be OK for a while yet.

They have always been waterproof since I bought them from Fred Knight's emporium of grot  Beach Road, Clacton with my first wages from working on the Pier in 1971.

I've got a complete, but completely broken, 1989 Yamaha YZ250WR.
It is free.
It's in bits but I can put it back to a rolling chassis if wanted.
Engine and numbers match, it has the blue seat and stuff a WR should have.
Engine is in bits, in a box, in no order and is FUBAR.
Little end needles let go and got everywhere, scored crankcase and all.
Worth something to someone, probably a few quid off a bike breaker but it's in my way and I want it gone.
A different engine and it's good to go, forks and rear end seem fine, all plastics, apart from one side panel are there but most are either battle scarred or cracked and quite brittle, tank ( yellowed a bit)and seat are not brittle.
Carb all there.
I don't want to throw it away and I don't do eBay so either take it and break it or try and find another engine and ride it.


Err, no postage.

It's been sat for ages, not immediately but soon will be fine.
Be nice if you did restore it, I intended to break it myself but couldn't do it.

I'd say that Zook is also shite because of the instruments - a speedo and a warning lamp - total.


What's the retail on one of those plumbed in fire extinguisher systems?

The bloke next to the white Zook looks like he's just trapped his finger in the back wheel.

Fowlers also supply at lot of dealers with parts and hold a decent amount of stock themselves rather than coming from the manufacturer to them then to you.

Robsinsons are normally pretty good.

 

However, I set up a new account to order with as every time I update the delivery address to the correct one on my old account it doesn't save it. So they spotted matching accounts & merged them, making sure to keep the wrong delivery address so the first cable went to a house I've not lived in for four years.
