          KTM stator - very bad. Known issue. I'm waiting for mine to fault too at some point, at the worst possible time of course. I friend that had an '07 managed to find the break at the end of the coil so was able to repair it.

              Did 30km of easy trails with The Wife today on the Betas (my 200RR, her XT) and it was a bunch of fun. Geez I like that 200!
              More again tomorrow.

              But... the reason I am posting is because I want to talk about my second last ride: Last weekend at Bathurst, I raced Vintage MX for the first time in five years.
              Despite the good bike (1987 KX125) DNFing me with ignition troubles, and the other bike (1986 KX200) being a bit of a dogbox, I had an absolute ball.

              Good racing, good company and good fun.

                  Last month just before the big wet a few of us went up to Chichester. The rain held of in the morning and we rode some nice single track. The wet summer meant we encountered a lot of fallen trees with some tracks completely blocked, the undergrowth has also gone ballistic and there was a lot of overgrowth on tracks which were clear when I last rode there in November.
                  After 12pm the weather started to look like rain and then it came down, of course we were at the furthest point from the start. The route took us above 800m and it got pretty cold. A miserable ride in cold wet conditions back the start ensued.
                  105km in total, I didn't drink enough electrolytes because of the cool wet weather. Cramps in both thighs on the way home and later that night had me in serious pain.

                  The XTrainer was running very well with the new pipe and upgraded suspension. I was concerned the shortened WP CC forks I have added were a bit stiff but they definitely have a lot better control than the originals. The pipe improves things dramatically, The original makes the low end doughy with a bit of a midrange hit. The FMF gnarly improves the bottom end and it is more linear, it feels like a 300 should. Top end is improved but not by much. It is really a 300 bottom end with a 200 top end now.
                  Of course while clearing a tree the bike fell off the stand and the pipe hit the only rock, a nice dent means it is christened now.


                  Good Friday saw us out at Lidsdale RTR at 0700. Heaps of bikes around and plenty (I've never seen so many, at least 40 vehicles) of people camping. The weather was perfect, cool and clear except for the fog in the valleys. We found a new track that looped around back to the start which had a nice tech downhill and a bunch of sweet single. Then a bunch of singles with a couple of good hill climbs. We met two groups of riders, both groups had over 10 bikes. One group had three XTrainers in it! Back to the car for some BBQ Kransky and pack up and home by 4pm. Bells Line is closed so we there was 20km of queued traffic on the Great Western heading west as we headed back east. They should have been there at 0500 hardly a car to be seen.
                  Only 55km travelled but nearly all ST.

                  The XTrainer worked great again. The rocky tracks showed me the forks are actually working very well and a swap with over onto a KTM400 confirmed that the XT is a much better bike for me. The light weight and low seat height making it much easier to ride with my weak left arm.

                    My 5 most recent rides...

                    Last ride was 7hrs of solo track maintenance on Saturday in some hidden local single.
                    With showers for most of the day it was bush-bashers bliss.
                    Having previously experienced the lack-of-electrolyte blues that Craigy mentioned, I consumed about 1.5L of electrolytes, 3L of water, 2 muesli bars & a ham & salad wrap throughout that 7 hrs.
                    I still ended up getting cramps in my fingers, toes & thighs by the time I was in this gully in the final hour.


                    Got 2 rides in on Good Friday. One just with my son, then we joined some mates on their new loop closer to town. Rained on & off all day.


                    The week before that I took the lad out for his longest ride yet.
                    A solid 4 hrs of semi technical stuff with lots of rocks & logs... the sort of stuff he hated a year ago.
                    At 16 he's now taller & stronger than me, which is clearly making it easier for him to muscle his 200 around in the slow stuff.

                    3 weeks ago I rode my first enduro, which was also the first proper ride on my 200.
                    Despite the pissing down rain, the event was great and the nimbleness of the 200 had me grinning all day.
                    I'm really looking forward to their cross country in 2 weeks.

                        The 10yo is too big for her PW80 but has been reluctant to give it up.
                        She rode her brother's XR80 on Sunday. First ride with a manual clutch, got the hang of it pretty well.
                        Did one lap of the bush track, and declared "this is my bike now".

                        Her older brother was mostly relegated to her PW80 which he didn't mind too much. Being hosed by his younger sibling was enough to motivate him to actually 'have a go' on the PW and he's decided that riding is fun again.

                        So yesterday we bought a CRF125 for the boy and she gets the XR.
