    What did the plumber say to the ballet dancer?

    You have to hit Baja. At least a few weeks during winter. Good for you for getting out there and immersing your kid. He will take these memories with him for the rest of his life. :beer

    Anybody know where to order a new clutch kit from Europe? Don't have a dealer nearby, anywhere online?

    I know about CRFSONLY but that's US based. Thanks.

    You should look up this guy Hilton. He’s a mad, crazy love machine that also excels in the skilled art of adventure riding!

    That's one nice looking bike!

    Love that exhaust, and the graphics, and the fender...

    Cuttin the ball off the end of the lever would be an automatic MOT test failure here in the UK rendering the bike illegal.

    What is the name for this type of fixing?
    I would like to get shorter steel ones for mounting the bag on the side of my Rally.
    Thanks, Pete

    I’ve seen them on Amazon as Barrel Nuts or Binding Screws depending on the head.

    I’m fairly sure the female end is threaded all the way down so merely cutting it to the required length will work.

    However, I would be careful using them for luggage. I would rather use stainless bolts with dome nuts for safety and security.

    Don't forget, most parts of the world don't have the benefit of the MoT test. Most of the US for example, afaik.

    If you go to McMaster.com and search for barrel nuts there are all kinds. 18-8 stnls is available, but NOT CHEAP.
    McMaster has everything, in stock and again, not cheap. When I was still working and speed, not price, was the object, we used McMaster a lot.

    Those are commonly referred to as “sex bolts” too.

    I think McMaster Carr is a bit of a way off for Pete, being based in UK.

    Well I got a Husky TX300i and have been riding it all winter. It recently rained too much for that so I went for the first long ride of the year last weekend. 130mi in an afternoon.
    Three things; I really appreciate the comfort of the bike with the Ohlins suspension. Super plush over everything. I love the Michelin Anakee Wilds. Wow does this thing not have power! lol
    Coming off a fuel injected 300cc 2 stroke is hard.
    Still loving the bike though. Great for what it is and still averaging about 62-65mpg.

    GLOSBOY: Go here: https://www.holstersmith.com/vcom/hardware-c-553.html In the USA folks can buy these kind of hardware fasteners to make holsters and knife sheaths. They heat form "Kydex" and literally bolt the pieces together with the fasteners shown. Kydex is usually 0.06" (1mm) thick or so material. The fastener you show are used here to bind 3 hole punched paper sheets....like catalogs and such together. Ones I've seen are aluminum and are fairly weak...often call binder screws.

    Heres the Link to the mx store I grabbed mine from. It’s just around the corner so I was able to test a few out for size. I thought this one looked the best.

    in regards to the screen, I purchased it from a company called Geba in Indonesia over a year ago. Had some help from a friend in Bali, as there English ( or my Indonesian) wasn’t that crash hot.
    MST are doing some great stuff at the moment; give them a yell!

    Bugger! I do wish folks would stop putting up links to stuff like that. Now, not only do I 'need' my Rally to look like that but also 'need' a 450 with all the bells and whistles for when I nip to the supermarket for a bottle of milk...

    Just stop putting temptation in my way. Brian :-)

    Jeepers! I think I would rather have dust and bugs than ice under my tyres...:(
