And if anyone has a spare bracket/clamp that goes over the top of the battery I'm after one. Posted in WTB too.

Thanks

Put in new float and rings and no more leak. Seems to be running a bit smoother to just by ear.

Cheers!
Don't hesitate to ask again if this doesn't solve the problem.

Just put a deposit on a DR It had fallen over in the workshop and bent the bars a bit. They're going to put a set of protaper/renthal on it. Haven't talked to the parts bloke yet to work out what exactly what..........

So a couple of questions for the knowledgeable folk in here. Will a set of high bend bars mean it's unlikely I'll need risers? (I'm about 5' 10") What are the most commonly used/favoured options? Fat bars to get rid of the centre support or standard diameter and use the support for GPS/phone cradle type gear? Thanks!

Edit - Talked to the sheila in accessories. They will be protaper. I've been searching and reading and tapping into the general wisdom in here and I'm leaning towards fatbars with a high bend and add risers later on if I need them.....unless somebody has advice against this? (risers with fatbar adaptors don't work? Any tips on specific models would be appreciated. If I read too much on my own without some words of wisdom I'll overload and hurt my brain

Handlebars are a personal thing, torso height, arm length etc. There is no doubt however that a nice strong alloy bar will take more punishment than the stockers.

Note that bar risers go up and back, but there are other solutions that go up and forward like those from ROX.

A really useful spreadsheet is linked here that has lots of bar dimensions for comparison:

Big effort by the author!

Question Rear shock wanted.

Anyone got a used rear shock laying around?
I only need the housing but a complete one would be easier to source.
The one l have was damaged when the guts of the reservoir decides to escape.
The circlip took a big nick out of the housing when it busted out of its groove, rendering the housing useless.
The little bladder inside also got lunched but that's no problem to replace.
Any leads appreciated.

Cheers

Dunno.
Lightly loaded, easy pace with 10 others.
Suddenly there was a lot of smoke as all the shock oil hit the exhaust.

So is it the bladder reservoir circlip thats damaged and not the actual shock body ?

If it's the bladder reservoir, you should be ok to put it all back together as it all sort of holds itself in place once gassed. I can't see how it could have come out unless you lost all the pressure in the bladder first and the bladder seal head moved allowing the circlip to come out.
Even with a few gouges in the circlip grove it should still hold.

Nah it's the actual shock body. Where the bladder circlip sits it had taken a decent nick out of the body as it came out. I'd rather rebuild another body to a higher spec than anything else.
Too much oil? It has been played with but all to OEM specs. Could be though.
May have sourced a second hand shock already.
PM received.
I will try and get a pic up for interests sake.
Thanks fellas.

hey Tenerrod I've got one - two actually. One standard, perfectly functional, can sell with standard spring or 7.6 spring or no spring. Plus another revalved one with 8.0 eibach. Plus I've got a fair bit of other stuff from 2 x DR rebuilds which will be going on the flea market over the next couple of months.

I'm in Kalamunda - but wont be around for a couple weeks. Gotta go to japan for some snowboarding..... sigh.

Get a pair of Ballards rebuilders and use two, or cut one into two and widen the stockers. Even an old peg cut in two will do. Just an angle grinder and a bit of weld.
