Re: Engine stand

I love the creative and practical approach of using a used car tyre especially for transporting the engines. Thank you :)

Re: Newly Purchased Kanguro

Here's a possible candidate, I didn't know him personally so used the search on this forum to look for black kanguro.

Re: 2021 AGM and Rally weekend

Mike, I do have plans to try a Coguaro front end even if it's likely to devalue my Kanguro. The main challenge I'd have with that plan is the fork stanchions need rechroming and they're a golden colour similar to the wheel rims, so that might be expensive to replicate/recreate. PS thank you for your...

Re: Kanguro X1 Rear Monoshock

Hello Steve I have just had to order another one for a different Kanguro. I get them from WMD-Online. They cost £150 if you can access the trade section. Not sure how much they retail them for. Off to France in a week or so to rescue the bike! WMD_Online seems to be the trade website who also provi...

Re: 2021 AGM and Rally weekend

Thank you to everyone who arranged this weekend. I enjoyed meeting old and new friends, and particularly meeting Soren from Denmark was one of my highlights to learn how he and Morinis have a symbiotic positive relationship (he improves them, they improve him). My newly rebuilt Kanguro X0 coped with...

Re: Surely you are joking

Their prices seem to be *more* expensive than many of the parts were new! amazing.

Re: How can the rear cylinder head be cleanly removed from an X0/X1?

Thank you for your suggestion, however the thread was missing entirely in the hole so a longer bolt wouldn't grip either. I ended up doing the repair with the head carefully moved about 3cm to the left which gave me enough room to enlarge the bolt hole with a 6.3mm drill and then tap and fit the hel...

Re: KNOBBLY FRONT TYRE/WHEEL AVAILABLE

Simon,
do you still have this front wheel? or is it long since gone? I'll happily cover the postage, etc.
Thank you, Julian.

How can the rear cylinder head be cleanly removed from an X0/X1?

I've spent a good hour trying unsuccessfully to remove the rear cylinder head from my newly rebuilt X0 (to helicoil a soft thread for one of the three cam cover cap bolts which wasn't practical to do in-situ). The four studs that hold the cam followers and tappet block are doing an excellent job of ...

I've replied to Pete by PM so I don't conflate my search with Ian_c's search for a fuel tank.

Re: Kanguro Fuel Tank Wanted

Another update, I've found my third tank which is similar to the first two i.e. deep red with the white markings. This one has a standard Kanguro fuel cap. It definitely needs repainting as some of the original paint has come off. It otherwise looks sound. This means I've potentially 2 tanks availab...

Re: Kanguro Fuel Tank Wanted

Pete, just checking, would the white tank be a fibreglass one or a steel one?

And if you happen to find a Kanguro X0/X1 frame that's straight and/or an X1 front end please keep them for me, as per our chat months ago...

I hope your search is fruitful.
