  1. Trailered the Greeves to my local, Show And Shine. Then home and rode in my 77 Honda, CJ250T. whitehillbilly
  2. All welded. Nothing disconnected. Just removed side covers and fuel tank. Lay bike throttle side down. Cleaned frame right next to weld point for earth lead. cleaned up crack and welded. Everything important was covered. Just pored clean water on weld when finished. Whitehillbilly
  3. Didnt shave this morning. Yes, Rossi buckle up. Does take me 15 mins to put them on, does allow you coffee to cool a bit. Not welded yet. Still waiting for advice.
  4. Well Santa has packed his Sleigh away for another year. The Greeves is all ready to go. First Trial Kicks off next week.

  6. Well Fantic update. Radiator fan died. Cut it out and replaced with on of these, from my local electronics shop. 4 to 12V https://www.jaycar.com.au/12v-6-500-rpm-dc-electric-motor/p/YM2718 played with the carby and now runs beautifully, with the new bits and kit fitted. So will stick with the original one fitted, Atm First Trial of the year next week. Start second kick, discovered it needs to warm up a bit longer with choke on. After cleaning fork seals and replacing oil, neither leaking, forks need re chroming but used some fine wet and dry to smooth off pealing chrome. See what happens after a days riding. noticed RH head steady has cracked from the frame. Can weld, but do I need to disconnect any thing before doing it ???? Have a stick, DC welder. Can put the earth right on the weld point. Thanks, whitehillbilly
  7. Thanks for the reply. What OKO carby did you fit? Looked at putting on of these on my section. Whitehillbilly
  8. Well I stripped them down, cleaned, new oil, mix of SAE30 and ATF. to make up 200mils per leg. Old oil may have been ATF, very dirty with a tinge of Red. Understand how they work now. Will add some pics when I do the new seals. Surprised at no comments. You lot must be Hibernating. whitehillbilly
  9. Happy 2017. Want to replace the front fork seals on my Fantic. Any advice or diagrams on how to do it? Any problems or special tools pulling them apart? Best place to get the 40mm bottom seals and wiper upper seals. Also the two lower seal retaining spring clip. Thanks.
  10. Bike ran well all day. Idle was up and down a bit, as the motor warmed up and the powers to be suggested replacing the crank seals. Can the early sections be done with out splitting the motor ???? Anyone have crank seal measurements. Thanks whitehillbilly
  11. Last trial of the year for the club tomorrow. Toss up between Greeves and Fantic. With the temp getting up possible around the mid 30's lighter bike won out. And Greeves gearbox bits, still to be ordered from Villiers services UK. 40 thou mainshaft play needs sorting with new parts. Storms also forecast, so may get wet and slippery quick. whitehillbilly
  12. Good day at SQTA trial, a little warm at around 28oC Bike ran well. Did blow some fluid from radiator after long climb up to sections 7/8 and 9. Think I may have overfilled and it was finding the correct level. Did add 10/20 mils to top, just in case, as it looked more that that, that blew out. Radiator fan went all day, no problems, so spraying Inox into it must have helped. Stand worked a treat. 12 sections, 4 laps. Check out my old Rossi Boots. Anyone else still riding in a pair ???? Now watching our Rugby League grand final, with a few beers. What a great day. Will add a pic tomorrows, as Monday is a Public holiday. Also a pic of my mate, Jai on his 95 Beta Whitehillbilly
  13. New Brake Pads have bed in nicely. Only problem, when opening up the rear calipers so the disk would go between them, I lost the rear peddle. Seem to have air bubbles in the line. 1/2 hr later all bled up, and working. whitehillbilly
  14. Finished Stand Thanks to those involved. Trial Tomorrow, see how it goes, as I think the lower spring bolt could be another 15/20 mm lover, to keep the stand up tight. Whitehillbilly
  15. Stand coming together. whitehillbilly
