    Chainsaw oil for your Chain?

    don't know where you get your chain and bar oil, but over here in Oz good bar oil is like treacle(shockin stuff to get on your pants when oil cap on saw vibrates off!). But i have used old engine oil from my bike as bar oil , chains still last just the same.

    Hey any Aussies out there know what happened to DBW. It seems to have disappeared into cyberspace altogether.

    how you guys clean your oil filter

    was going to say the same thing myself. why spend extra cash on carb or brake cleaner when fuel cleans them just fine. i have also cleaned paper ones but only in an emergency. and don't recomend it at all.
  7. Here Here i totally agree it's great knowing you can ride your dirt bike any where you bloody-well like. cheers Ben

    88 tt 250

    Hi all, Newish here. Just bought a 88 tt250. After a little advice. Valve guides are leaking. Is it possible to replace these in situ, or does the head have to come off. If so should i replace the rings as well. Also what would be the best sprocket combo for road and trail. I currently have 15/52 which seem great in the bush but i'm flat out getting 100kph out of it on the black stuff. Can a 16t fit on the front? Then i could just swap the front over if i was to do a bit more on the road. Thanks in advance. Ben.(Aust.)

    Question about plugs, burned? help plz

    yes the "R" in the no. means a resitor type which as far as i know means it doesn't produce electrical interferance. the "8" is the heat range the higher the no. the cooler the plug the lower the no. the hotter the plug is. cheers Ben.
