Re: Wanted Yamaha 750Tz bottom end

Hmm over 100 views and not a single reply, some body must have?? Plenty of people looking for TZ750 engines - I do know whereabouts of a few - none for sale - some people saving them for pension - even worn out they are commanding big prices... Probably take more than a couple of weeks to track one...

Re: 2020 Superside calendar

Surely better to delay "as long as it takes" than risk the need to return to another "Lockdown" later ?
See journo's asking about exit strategy every day - they just don't seem to grasp the reality of "as long as it takes"

Re: Brake bias- tubular long chassis

Well that's better - but we had issues with scrutineering at Cadwell with a similar setup - and he was absolutely right - that setup is a problem if the one cylinder fails - the pedal will go to the floor on the failed side and put no pressure on the remaining good cylinder - so the addition of a "g...

Re: Brake bias- tubular long chassis

Not sure if it's any help - but we have an in-built front bias by using different size M'Cyls 5/8" to the front pair of calipers & 0.7mm for the rear / chair - works well...

Re: WHEN POSTING PLEASE REMEMBER TO INCLUDE...

Good call Steve. In my opinion, if passengers aren't willing to pay towards running costs and entries, they shouldn't expect a ride. Those that are willing, but unable are a different story.
