In 2015 the fuel limit was set at 20l per race, I can’t see a 2t finishing a race on that amount of fuel. But the 500’ were monsters that only real men could ride.

The outgoing Yamaha YZR500 used around 18litres per 100kms. So it may jut finish a race. The MotoGP bikes also only just finishes a race on their allotted fuel.

They seem to be sort of similar under full throttle conditions.

But crashing a F1 car is just soooooo much more expensive, he would bankrupt the team in half a season.....

No, he'll just hang out of the cockpit and save that front slide. :pot:

Well done George...faultless race from the start.  Jeez he was good...

Think MM was trying to hard to stay with the Dukes...  they were just too fast.  Seems the Hondas are not the ‘luck dragons’ some belief?  Should just have sit back and kept VR off the podium :imaposer:

How are those Suzukis ?  In for a Kevin Schwantz year in 2019?

And BiB came 6th :thumleft: :deal:

Classic Jorge.......give him clear track and he can run super-consistent laps all race long. Not much of a dueller though, imo.  Nevertheless, good for him, and Dovi..........AND Rossi.

Africa does not deserve the Dakar.

Sometimes you have only one chance, and if you neglect that chance, or squander it, it may never come again.

The Africa Dakar was fantastic, and the Africans saw it as a chance to lever some issue over.

They did not lose Dakar, they chased it away.

I have tanks cleaned and lines by Wyngaardt in Cpe Town, and it was about R800 per tank.

3 tanks and buying the stuff to do yourself is worth it.

But.......research the process.

To be honest to the point of bluntness, there is a reason why building plans need to be submitted, and adhered to.

Or soon everything could look like a squatter township.

Been awhile since I have seen such vitriol expressed by so many who probably never venture out their own backyards. Last time it was Charlie & Ewan who received the brunt of displeasure.
Blowing out someone else's candle does not make yours shine any brighter

If only Rosie never ventured out her backyard. :thumleft:
We would have nothing to rant about?  ;)

Always the practical thinker, Peter. :thumleft: :thumleft: :thumleft:

If you have the mechanical ability, take out your clutch plates, or get a friend to help you take them out.

Clean them thoroughly with Prepsol, or even petrol, and take a sheet of 360 grit emery paper and face all the fibre plates[driver plates].

Do not take off any measurable amount of friction material, the idea is just to break the glaze on the surface.[the glaze could be there due to previous overheating of the plates through abuse]

Then measure the free-lenght of the clutch pressure-plate springs, and refit if within tolerance.

This "glaze-breaking" is often all a clutch-pack needs to perform well again for a long time.

If this does not work you'll have to replace the entire set of fibre plates, try Craig's/N2 bikes/Startline, or even BMW.

There are more and more talk of getting commuters onto bicycles and motorcycles.

Better they look at scrapping the duties.
