» Frame Straightening
Sep 15, 2014 - 4:55 PM - by 2strokelover
Looking to find someone who would have the knowledge/equipment
to straighten a frame in Ireland, possibly connacht?

The tail section from what I can work out needs to be re-aligned.

Maybe some of the racers on here would know
not that you all would be crashing a lot or anything

its a 1986 YPVS frame just in case some suggestions are to pop
down to the breakers and buy a replacement one.

Hi Guys, just a heads up that a truck lost a load of diesel or Oil just before the Enniskerry turnoff going North and all the way to just after the down ramp from Fasseroe. (You'll see the truck broken down)

Right, so with the announcemnt that Gresini are going to be the Aprilia GP team for 2014, and Mark VDS announcing a factory Honda for Redding, does that mean that there will be a Pramac seat for Norge?

Rumours are that Iannone is going to the factory team to replace Crutchlow, leaving a seat free with Hernandez.

Hornet 250; Can't get her to fire at all.

Head gasket just changed after it blew & was left sitting for a few months.

So Far:
New Battery
New Plugs
Fresh Fuel
Valve Timing re-checked 3 times over
Coils swapped around (I've seen fatter sparks but she's definitely sparking on all 4...don't think weak spark is an issue)

Plugs are coming out wet after cranking it over so its fuelling all 4 attempt to start though.

Attempted bump starting it a few times but it won't turn the engine over; just locks the back wheel, even in 6th. The crank turns over grand with a socket on the end of it & moving it by hand though, and it flies around on the starter. She'll roll in gear... [Read More]

Can any of the KTM heads here explain to me if there's a difference between the 990 SM and the SMR?

Is the SMR the hardcore version like the Superduke R is to the Superduke?

Which one has the 19 litre fuel tank as standard or does it vary?

Well done to the Loughshinny club and marshals and medical team for getting through a difficult couple of days, between parked cars delaying practice and lots of red flags on the day.
Also, fingers and everything else crossed for William Cowden after his accident.

Anyone who knows me on you-know-what will probably have seen most of these already, but plenty more on here
