Yamaha XT & XTZ / Re: Yamaha XT 500 (1982 model) carburetor
« on: June 28, 2018, 03:23:33 pm »
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.

General Technical / Re: 90 deg drill adapter needed Jhb Area

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.

Nice one Chris & Team!

And yeah, batteries let go for nothing, usually only about 1 crank warning.....

I have a woven hammock i received as a present many years ago - too lekker!

I use old climbing slings to wrap around trees or whatever, with old caribiners to clip the whole lot together (put a message out for retired climbing gear, climbers ditch it or use it for stuff like this when it gets old) and also a 5m piece of 300kg climbing cord (about 6mm dia) and you are pretty much set to go - i once pitched it between two concrete pillars on a veranda on the beach in Moz - idyllic....

KTM LC8 950/990 / Re: F*($*@&^*@(&^$ KTM!
« on: January 15, 2018, 07:38:13 am »
I am sorry - How on Earth can you "not wash a bike" just in case it doesn't start????
To me that means k@k design, engineering or some badly planned positioning - in this day and age its ridiculous to think that a bike cant get wet!

And I so badly want to buy one, I have a possible option on a 990A that I am seriously considering, but k@k like this.....!  :o
