Added reply in a thread Active chain tensioner - would it work? 10/8/2019 1:47 PM

I assume it never took off back in the day because it was ineffective or unreliable but with todays technology with sensors etc would it have more potential?

Added reply in a thread Who will be first KTM rider racing 350 at MEC? 10/8/2019 1:46 PM

I think the 350 is a very under-utilised bike for both indoors and outdoors. I know people always say it has 100cc less but 250s run times very close to 450s a lot of the time so I think the 350 would be a great option for a lot of riders to find that ... more »

Started new thread Active chain tensioner - would it work? 10/8/2019 1:38 PM

I had a think about what it would be like if bikes were able to be fitted with an active chain tensioner to keep consistently "perfect" tension on the chain at all times. My thinking is that if you have this perfect tension throughout the bike accelerating,

While the track does look relatively simple I think it will make for some great racing. Looks like an insanely different track to last years so it'll be interesting to see how it races

I think engine mods are pretty much unrestricted for both AMA and GP but in terms of comparing works and production bikes from back then to now, I reckon the gap has narrowed a lot more as there would be a lot more quality aftermarket options now compared ... more »

As far as I remember he had to use a stock frame and swingarm as per AMA rules, no exceptions. GP scene they can run custom anything I believe but rules in AMA are stricter which is what made his feat so much more impressive.

Just to make sure, when people say they torque the bolts, i hope you actually mean torquing the nuts on the back side of the sprocket? Any time i replace a sprocket i replace with a new nut and bolts set as the new nuts come with loctite on them. If ... more »

I don't have any advice on what to do but why would the bike sit idle on a stand for 5 minutes? Surely any bikes is going to get too hot idling away with no cool air running through it

I am away with work for a couple of days now but will do when i get back. After searching around it seems as though the outer seal on the water pump shaft could be leaking and causing this? Seems like the inner seal should be ok as the oil looks perfectly ... more »

OK so another potentially stupid question. I replaced the seal and cleaned the channel the seal sits in as well as the flat face of the water pump and I now have coolant leaking slowly from the weep hole underneath the pump housing. I did some searching ... more »
