G'day Pigdog
I've got a mate who rides one out on the trails............ it's completely standard, with crap tyres.
When he gets serious.................. you've got to be right on the ball just to keep up with him !!!!!!!!!!
But he is some sort of ex enduro ace !

Luv em, bloody great bike to muck around on with heaps of grunt, I want to build a special when I get some time.
Red, why didn't Honda ADR the F like Yamaha does with the TTR? From what I can see and what I've read the L is nothing like the F. Seems like an ADR F model would have been an excellent alternative to the TTR-A.

Hang on. I need to remember this is just a farm bike. I really don't want to go and do a lap of my track and find out I am quicker on it than the 250. That would be a disaster.

Might have to do vic series next year on one if I am.

I would love to have a registerable F model for the little lady to get around on.

Well, with heavy fork oil and 50mm preload, it is great at soaking it all up, but the rebound is to slow.

Might have to try a little lighter, I think I went to thick to early.

Was gunna post earlier about being careful with fork oil weight. The forks probably don't have any type of blow off valve and if they don't by the time you get enough comp' damping feel with heavier oil they'll lock on high speed movements, hadn't considered the rebound.

Same problem for pre '85 competitors, common fix is drill out damper rods and fit gold valves.( EDIT I meant emulator valves )
