    i got my rose joint/bearing from here> http://cgi.ebay.co.u...em=150694080957 if he cant help ,remove it and measure it first,then match the size on a bearing supplier,to avoid paying "motorbike"prices which can be 400%+more.outrageous! another way is matching the number on the actual bearing and then use the above route.good luck.
  4. thats great!! the riders have nerves of steel,i was there with my son and grandaughter watching from the top,and made me feel quite wobbly looking down them slopes,let alone jumping up the logs and tyres!incredible!! ill be taking my bike there in 2 weeks and my son will be hiring,a great place indeed and great people too!! was nice to see my son briefly in the video too.cheers

    should be fine now!!was the bike cheap to start with?
  6. me,and me youngest son ben (17) and grand daughter(3) went to a rrnd club trial last weekend,only a short video but quite nice when the g/daughter shows her concern at a fallen rider.
  7. keep it for ten years and it'll be worth twice that,a better investment than money!!
  8. in my 97 jtx i put 16ml per litre so 80ml per 5 litres,and as above the engine is sweet as a nut.

    another update sorted the stand now,has a 12mm bolt through it and the bike stands correctly.took it over fields for test ride today and it started first kick!excellent when you see all the work you put in pay off,all i need now is some boots and to find my open face hat and then everything is sorted.
  10. indeed its a great place to buy oils!! the mere mention of"its for a motorbike" sends the price up!! also after running the bike in the garden today the whole house smells like a motocross track.excellent!
