"That just looks like a socket head bolt is used for bleeding. If so then a helicoil in the thread will repair it , or tap it out to the next size larger bolt."

"The Arrow X3 or X4 Vegas will suit you fine, and it is 30/30.  It is slightly longer in the pedal area than the earlier X1 and X2 , but if you find one of these you will likely need the extended front.  "

"I raced a 125cc gearbox kart in sprint in the 1970's.   Most memorable was the night racing under lights at the Tunarama title at the 330metre long Port Lincoln Gokart club track.  My first year I won the 50 lapper at the end of…"

Hi Ian, 

Just saw your price list online for the WM08 Wheel Set Douglas "SE" 130/212 Solid Magnesium Wheels.

You have two rear wheel sizes listed 210 and 212. Can you tell me what performance difference can be expected when using the 212 instead of a 210? My kart is an Arrow BMAX and it would appear as though the current rear wheel size is 210. Also is 212 the maximum you can or should go to when using MG Reds?
