Ask Powerflow Justin about fire... He will tell you all a different story.. How an electric lamp, quite far from where he was working set him and a vehicle alight... Circumstances and conditions around fuel and fire..? Huge risk and never easy to predict...
Would love to know what the outcome was here... Sad story of a really nice machine..

That's is horrible. It happened to my moms car but unfortunately she wasn't insured at the time. Hope you can come right.

flash point (spontaneous ignition temperature)

no....... that is Auto-ignition temperature (280C)

Flashpoint is the lowest temp at which the material can vaporize.

No. Flashpoint is the lowest temperature at which vapors above a volatile combustible substance ignite in air when exposed to flame or the lowest temperature at which vapors above a volatile combustible substance will support combustion

Hectic!!!Did the insurance paid out?



Slight highjack:::::Any pics of KTM's burning >:D

Three brand new KTM 450RR's  burnt out on the Dakar in January. One belonged to Iain Stevenson down in the Midlands. :(

Sorry for the loss
I'm not saying kill stupid people, I'm saying, remove the warning labels and let the problem sort itself out.

Presies wat ek ook gedink het, elke dag sien 'n ander ou die thread en hou dit aan die gang, wens die perd sterkte toe met die versekering ens. Die ou was 5 maande laas hier - lankal aanbeweeg.
