    What kind of protective gear do you wear?

    Bottom half is pretty standard, boots, knee guards or knee braces, pants. What upper body protective gear do you wear, and what kind of riding do you do? I used to wear one of those Thor black stretchy suits, with pads everywhere, as that is what seemed logical and was what I had. I felt...

    For casual Gauteng riding and some Lesotho exploring. I'm really itching but don't have money ATM. What's the pick between CRF250/450 and WR250/450? Better or worse than old KTM's? I'm not mixing 2 stroke.

    Anyone know T5 Transporters?

    Some of the "crew cab" models came with two rows of seats, some with three specced as extras from the factory. Can a third row from another T5 (Transporter/Kombi/Caravelle) be retrofitted to one with just two rows? Is the mounting provide for?

    How's this sound for a plan? Frankenduro bike.

    Ok, I don't think I want a two stroke anymore. Mixing petrol, splooge, bad range, jetting issues. And of the four strokes, I don't want a KTM or Honda. So that leaves me with a WR250F or WR450F. How about taking a 2008ish alu frame WR250F, fitting a Recluse EXP and a fan, and then stripping...

    KDX spewing oil out the back on startup.

    Ok, when I eventually managed to start the project KDX yesterday, it shat a load of oil out the muffler for a minute or so until it ran clean. All over my grass and paving :? On Saturday I couldn't start it, probably flooded it in the process. I'm thinking the oil that came out yesterday was...

    18" rear rim wanted for KDX

    Anyone got a old rim or wheel they want to get rid off cheaply? For a friend's project KDX. Bike is not really worth spending much money on. Suppose any 18" rim will work? Can be a bit dinged up, as long as it's solid.

    Anyone here use a Rekluse clutch?

    Beta and GG 2 smoke fuel range

    Seems like most Katoom 2 smokes have about 11 liters stock, and Beta and GG about 8 liters, which maybe contributes to the lower seat heights in those brands. What's the range like on these bikes? Going to a smoker from a 4T the range reduction already kills me. Really the only bad thing...

    Best bike for the roof?

    Cant believe we don't have a thread like this... What is the best bike for an Roof attempt? I weigh 75kg dry (85 kitted up)and I'm 1.76 m tall. Logic would say Euro 200/250/300 2T? Low weight, decent suspension and leccy start.
