  1. Hi Scott, International Rescue here.! I've also got a DT 175 MX 1978 round tube swinging arm bike. I've got a photo of the loom under the tank if that helps, and I'm more than willing to take my tank off and photo around for you. I'm familiar with the electrics of this bike, see one of my main popular posts on 12v conversion if you're interested. I can send you the photos, if you PM me if thats any help. Plus if you happen to reside on the South Coast I could simply show you.

  2. Not missed one for years now, until this year. Had tickets World Superbikes and BSB at Donny Park too this year. Only got one trackday in because of trying to shield family members, and the bike broke down 2nd session, day over. Got one booked for this Monday though, hope the weather holds up Stay safe all

  3. Job number 1 is to make sure you have ownership and no duties/debts/losses owed by the bike caused by previous owners or commitments to previous owners. Would be a real shit to get work done only to find it was a total write off a few years ago, or you get it finished register it and then the police turn up, thank you for your efforts and take it away because its stolen property. It is literally job 1, i cannot emphasize this enough.

  4. Got this through the post yesterday via ebay. Promptly told the seller what I thought of it and to his credit he's sent me a replacement straight out. Rear brake light switch and not a coat hanger if anyone's wondering

  9. Not sure I subscribe to that. My bike usually goes in the shed about the end of October, and wont resurface until April. I don't drain the tank, I just ensure the carbs are empty (non vacuum, so switch the tap off and run the engine till it dies) and the battery goes on a charger and the bike will start again in the spring no problem. In saying that, I use the dearer fuel in the bikes, so maybe that helps.

  11. My mates told me, don't worry about bringing your motocrosser, it will all be flowing trails they said... The YZF did make it, 200km of dirt trails with rocks and river crossing all day! https://youtu.be/cD2nfZMqtlI EDIT: tried to embed the video, but no idea what the "html radial button" is.

  12. Double check that the clips to pinch arent round the other side. If they are, just twist the clip around till you can get bat them. If its a wire type clip, just snip it with a pair of cutters. Measure the outside diameter of the pipe before you buy a replacement clip. Careful pulling the pipe of the elbow, the pipe is pushed over a step on the elbow in order to seal. A small Jubilee Clip of the right size will do ya, dont overtighten it

  13. Drain all the old fuel and put some fresh in. Clean the plug/fit new plug, make sure the battery is good and fully charged. Check the air filter is clean. Modern fuel goes off and absorbs moisture

  15. I don't do Facebook Thanks anyway. Feel free to post a link there if you like though. We're in the last days of the good weather and everyone is probably out enjoying their bikes. I have faith that some nice person will eventually read this and help out... That and I'm not in a hurry as it won't be on the road until next year and I have plenty of other jobs to do. Waiting on tools and parts still. Apparently it's quicker to order parts from Australia and Thailand than the US. Managed to score some rare parts but they cost me a kidney.

  16. Scott, I can't help you with your query, but as you're finding out, the site has gone quiet over the last while. There is a fb site with the same name, and I note that questions get answered there a bit quicker. Good luck on your search

  17. Hello, This is just to say hello to all members. I am not a very active motorcyclist (anymore) but often look after motorcycles for my sons. At the moment we have 2007, YBR125 as a learner bike for my son who is planning to move on to heavier bike. Hope to learn and share experience. Regards,

  18. Just done a biker down course and learned a great deal about first aid for bikers and scene management. they also showed a vid on why we have smidsey just thought I’d share it

  19. I wish they had something like Bikerdown out here, all the training that I've found so far is track based. Which sort of defeats the object for me. They don't teach SMIDSY out here, not sure why. Anyone who doesn't know of it.

  20. How to make an application for the retention of a vehicle's original registration mark If you own a motor vehicle whose registration mark is not held by the DVLA, you may still be able to successfully apply for the retention of its original registration mark. To retain the vehicles original registration mark you must however be able to provide documentary `proof` linking the machine to the registration mark. This proof should ideally be an old buff, or green, logbook. If neither is available then the following may also be considered at the discretion of the DVLA a pre-1983 tax disc or MOT
