    I have one of the repco ones as well, and so does Kev69 (I saw his and wanted one) . Being able to move the bike around once lifted is quite convenient if you don't always get to do the whole job at once like me.....
    I got mine on sale at $149 be quick & it might just save you a bit of cash I think they are something like $250 normally.

    Haven't heard too much discussion about this, so I thought I'd stick it here for info. It's on today (Sunday 18th Nov) at the Gawler showgrounds.

    Amongst several things being exhibited or on display is Peter from Hoey Racing, who loves talking to people about their suspension problems. Plus a heap of old bikes...

    Might see you there...

    I saw a promo sign for this as we went through Gawler on the way home form the Flinders. I could clean out my shed of old riding gear, a DRZ250 and a WRF290. Wouldn't my wife be happy!

    Gawler has changed in the 30 years since I last visited there.

    We were looking for Niel's Tractor parts to pick up some bits for BRR's new header.

    I am looking forward to a slower tour of the mid -North areas of S.A. in the future. Itwould be good to meet you guys.

    thanks all ... got the Repco one :)

    righto ... the new (to me) DR has a crack in the subframe ... just below the passenger footpeg. The bike's clearly taken a hit there and the member is a little bent up and in. Net result is that the front pipe mount isn't where it should be and the bum end of the header rubs aainst the shock spring. I need to find someone who can bend it back into shape and weld it up - or I suppose I could cut it and reshape it prior to getting someone t weld it back together.

    So: recommendations for someone in Adelaide (I'm just north of North Adelaide) who does this kind of work?

    Bit of a bummer - it's been welded, but not completely fixed - don't reckon th previous owner even realised the extent of the damage :( Airbox mounting tabs are busted too - I'm quite handy with epoxy and scrap bits of plastic though :)

    cheers,
    Slap

    Jeez, not a good way to end a ride. Hope the healing process is quick.
