    Gold valves?

    I ran them in my YZ400E forks, which may have been YZ465 forks. Whoops.

    Were much better with them though.

    Yeah this is about the 3rd crack at the disk forks plus a few at the drum forks.
    Just a little fine tuning each time.

    Funnily enough, I got on it and rode 50m and the plug failed. It was as if the bike didn’t want me on it...

    Nah, good old fashion corrosion. the inside of the rim looks like its made out of wood and you can just scrape big slivers of powdered aluminium off. In that area its only wafer thin as you can see around the valve hole, i was just trying to get a bit more out of it before i put my good rim on. I even backed that spoke off after i noticed the crack.
    The problem is locating new z spokes plus the rim has one less hole.

    one leass spoke hole, than the hub has spokes? Hmmm... sound's like you going to have to get "creative" with lacing the new rim up...? :dunno :ear

    I saw this today. It`s in a collection of about 8 Jawas. This one really took my eye. Think it`s a 400 ISDT. But I could be corrected. Anyone got more info on them ?
    It just could be for sale. Hmmmm

    Apparently they were sold with a heap of spares and tools. I found this pic on the net showing what came with them.

    Some pics I found from the end of year VTR event at Canowindra of me giving the 85' TT350 and 89' XR600 a run as well as
    a few others that i took of some of the less common bikes that were present at the event.
    Also less than 2 weeks to go now until our local event - The 2019 Cookardinia Vinduro.
    More details of that can be found here -
