Just to be clear: are we discussing a case porosity issue (like old British bikes) or a sealing issue?

Sinisalo worked well for me for years. Xtreme gear impressed as quality goods later on. Don't suppose either is readily available anymore. The original HRP chest protector was the most comfortable I ever raced with.

Yeah, I know Rob, just day dreaming now. Still laugh to myself at the glee in Carla's voice as he was telling Soren and I his tale from Namur that year at the French MXdN. (Villars d Ecot ?) The quick beer stop....

5.10 x 18 is actually 110/100-18. We used the same mold (ex. say M22) at Bridgestone for both, eventually changing everything over to metric sizing with some exception. The 4.00 x 18 is the 100/100-18. The 4.10-18, a lower aspect ratio than 4.00 but ... more »

FWIW: I was there for the teardown of JMB and Jeff's bikes. For whatever reason (can't recall) Yamaha chose the Vegas round to ask for the inspection. The bikes were stripped to bare frames and swingarm. Both frames were stock yet looked very different ... more »

You will want the 110/100-18.

So very sorry to hear this and condolences to the Medsker family. Dennis was a uniquely talented individual and a real pleasure to be around. In the same breath he could discuss flight characteristics of the C-47 and why your neck hurts because of what ... more »

Do like the T-handles. Still have and use a set of Race Tools t-handles and Tri handles. What a surprise...

The Sears tire appears to be from Carlisle Tire & Rubber (the Trials Universal pattern) and was a popular dirt track tire. It did resemble a Pirelli (probably not a coincidence) also used in flat track. Sears sold Gileras and an interesting Puch ... more »

There were a variety of little bikes that used the four speed 80. Steen and Rupp come to mind. Could you slide a 100 Hodaka in instead? As I recall the mounts line up. Or start digging thru the Hodie parts bins....

FWIW: When we were representing EBC at the pro races (1985 - 2002) we used mostly the Kevlar kits but some of the regular material kits also. There were very few aftermarket clutch basket/hub combos out in the market so mostly the fitment was to stock ... more »
