So we were like at the Phillip Island National Rally and Rob Bollo was all sulky and moaning “awww, I think I done my crank” and we were like “c’mon mate have you checked your stator” and he was all “nah it’s my crank” and we were so “don’t be a drongo, check your stator”.
So there we were, about ten of us all up, I reckon, most just drinking and taking the mickey as you do. Fark, talk about pissing about, took ‘em ages to get the rear runner and flywheel cover off, then we realized we didn’t have a socket and ratchet to fit inside the flywheel holder tool, we was truly buggered.
So there he was winding the Occy strap in and out of the fins on the flywheel, then he fastens the ends to the frame, takes up the tension in a clockwise way, puts on the spanner, gives it a whack, and hey fucken presto, it worked, I shit you not. I swear we were all like gob smacked. Then Jimbo dropped his pants, not for any reason mind, he just does that.
