Well here's the pics and the damage, a great ride, I'm pissed off about the shoulder but not too much, the Doc recons about 50% of the damage was done about 4 years back.

Luckily they managed to repair most of that as well. Not always possible after that length of time, so counting my blessings.

Well done Brett. As PBee says, why not just come up and socialise. Hitch a ride and make it cheaper for yourself.

Hey MB,
Just on that cracked top shock mount.
Standard practice is to drill a small hole at the end of the crack before welding it up again.
This will stop any propagation from that point onwards
If you have enough thread length, stitch weld (around the perimeter of ) a washer on that face for strength

Thanks for the advice Conman

Got a mate who deals with elevated platform crane stress fractures for a living & is going to fix it for me.

Then it's back to this again, looking like this and feeling like this

So who's a decent dyno tuner of FCR carby's in Adelaide?

I guess dyno isn't necessary, I just need the bloody thing to run properly.

It hesitates, bogs and just generally runs like shit when you give it a fist full.

for recreational fishing in SA do you need a fishing licence like in NSW?

cheers,

went fishing this morning and got this...... whatever it is. the shoe beside it is my size 13

got a pic, then threw the bastard back :)

i dont eat fish so i never bothered learning different types of them. i just enjoy going fishing and then throwing them back or giving them to someone that will actually enjoy it.
