Re: Honda MG & MF 750

Hi Jonno
Looking good... you must be pleased, but are you going to finish in time? :?

We're leaving Pirie at 10:00 Saturday.

Re: Honda MG & MF 750

Hi Jonno
Is old yella running yet & will she be on fuel or petrol ?? MF or MG ??

Don't forget if you are running fuel you need covered fuel lines & fuel shut-off that can be operated without taking your hands off the bars...

Go MG with the Water Bottle.... 8)

Re: normal force a weighty issue

Hi Guys
I am also trying to add ballast to the front but having trouble finding space.... it would be easy to add weights to the fork tubes, but I'm unsure of handling problems.... any advice on that option??

Re: Vespa Dry Lake Racer lives...

Hi Johno The best thing about Aussie LSR is doing it your own way. With a faired bike I feel ground effects are worthwhile considering to lessen the bike's uplift & this mainly comes belly pan design, low ground clearance & attitude. Also, ballast is an obvious consideration, but with an unfaired bi...

Re: Honda MG & MF 750
