Hi, I'm trying to help a friend on a farm in bloem. He needs a Yamaha XT carburetor, or repair kit for the carb if there is such a thing. Any help would be appreciated.

Thumpers in KZN sell carb kits - i have bough from them in the past - check on Gumtree & OLX

think thats a Bison polish chuck.....check practical machinist foe info

Correct - Bison from Poland - represented in SA by F&H Machine Tools here in Jhb.
I will contact them and ask if the jaws are still available.
Pls measure the PCD of the 3 pins, as well as the diameter of the pins themselves, in case we cant get jaws for the chuck.

What about a flexible shaft attachment?

We have these as well - not ideal though, and only small diameters up to around 3mm.....

We go there sometimes as well - but we approach it from the Blockhouse on the gravel - great ride!
Greylingstad also has an abandoned village on the hill NW of the village itself - quite a spooky place.....

I did stop & chat to Chris - Zebra - Flying Brick!! Hi Chris!

I obviously missed the Ducati stand somehow - as well as the Xculcha - and we were looking for them...

Ahh well - it was still a good afternoon with bikes, but at the price I probably wont go next year......

Go get a micro-fibre towel from your favourite outdoor shop - packs the size of a beer can.
One pair of jeans - they get houding.
Bike boots and jeans are fine for a bike-fest.
Ride Safe!!

Good Food & Braai / Re: Chipotle in Adobo - where to get.....?
« on: April 03, 2018, 10:16:52 am »
Well, I failed to order the Chipotle in Adobo at he time, as the freight would kill it - but i had to order a present last Wednesday, so tacked a bottle onto the order from Yuppichef.

WINNER!

Arrived this morning as promised, along with a hand-written Thank You note from the Yuppichef team - I am amazed by the personal touch, rare these days!

Quote from: ClimbingTurtle on Today at 01:07:08 pm>Hi Chris,

What diameter is the hole it's going through?

Might be able to get you some up here?

Steve

thanks, Steve: the hole-size is 4 mm
appreciated, Chris (and Conrad)


Chris, Conrad - it appears that BMG list them in their Fasteners/miscellaneous range - http://www.bearingman.co.za/pages/fasteners.asp - nearest branches to you are in Stikland or Maitlans - http://www.bearingman.co.za/pages/branch.asp - let me know if they cant help - I have a few suppliers here, but these would save freight.
