    Starter spinning but not kicking bendix out.

    My Beta's starter stopped doing its thing. It's still swinging, but its not engaging the engine. Bendix isn't kicking out. I think this started at some point when the battery drained flat. But a recharge hasn't fixed it. The battery has power, fan works, but I am not sure if it is maybe going...

    Where to buy tubliss front inner that is in stocks.

    Hey there. I need a tubliss inner (front) and my guy here tried to order but apparently the Mitas guys that import them are out of stock. Any idea who would stock this as a shelf item where I can get one? Thanks.

    Check your linkage regularly!

    I recently viewed a video on youtube on linkage maintenance. My bike has been feeling a bit hard on quick hits lately and I thought it may be time to check the linkage before I have a look at the shock. I never checked the linkage in the 100 hours that I have had the bike. When I got it, I saw...

    Petrol/Electric Go Karts (indoor racing) - Where to buy/get?

    Hey. Maybe someone here knows someone who knows someone. I am trying to source go karts, and I would like to get more options. I would LOVE to go electric, that's first prize, but they seem to be hen's teeth (hard to believe in this day and age) I have spoken to Greame at 4-stroke workshop...

    Serviced my own suspension this weekend!

    So I was looking for something to tinker with this weekend and my forks won the lucky draw... My forks have been leaking a bit of late, and are due a service. I have always wanted to do it myself, and thought now is as good a time as ever. I obviously did not have fork seals at 4pm on a Friday...

    My take on the dreaded 350!

    So I spent some time on @Pom17 's 350 this weekend, and a lot of time "watching" him on the 350. I think it is an absolutely LOVELY scooter! I was quite impressed. It is about a gazillian times smoother/easier ride than my 2T. I only played with it in jeep track, with some rough patches here...

    Buying Dollars now... spend them later?

    Seeing as Zuma and his circus keep on practicing new tricks to perform, what options are there if, figuratively speaking, I am planning to spend a good amount of dollars (Over EFT) closer to December... Can you "buy now" and spend later? How does that work? Come old timers with deep pockets...

    Fouls plug on cold start

    Hey. Maybe someone can help me reason this out a bit. I sold the Gas Gas to a friend recently, and all was lekker before I sold it, and for the first couple of rides after he took it. Recently, its SHIT hard to start. It seems to "flood" on cold start (cold as in stood for a few days). It...

    Spare Spark Plug Holder

    @Pom17 recently showed me his plan to keep his spare spark plug safe using some plumbing pipes and fittings to make a capsule to keep the plug in. I needed one as my plug always gets mangled in my toolbag/backpack. I designed it as small as possible, and the cap can be used as a plug spanner...
