  • What is this

    What is this? If you know what this is then share the post and see how many of your friends know #MidasServiceParts If you know what it is and you need one don’t worry as Randburg Midas stock them. A feeler gauge is a tool that is used to measure the distance or gap between two objects. Feeler gauges are used extensively throughout a variety of industries, to set up manufacturing equipment to ensure effective performance. They are also commonly employed for automotive engine components that require precise spacing in order to operate properly. Feeler gauges are available in a wide range of English and metric sizes. A feeler gauge is usually purchased as part of a set that contains a series of individual gauges with progressively increasing thicknesses. Gauges can also be purchased individually, and may be manufactured in custom shapes and sizes. To measure the space between two objects, a gauge with a thickness that is close to the gap distance is employed first. If this gauge is too large to fit, the gauge with the next, lower thickness is used. If the gauge has excessive clearance, the feeler with the next, higher thickness is tried. This process is repeated, until a gauge that fits snugly in the gap is identified. The thickness of this gauge then represents the distance of the gap. Feeler gauges are most commonly made of high-quality carbon steel, and are machined to a very smooth surface finish. Other blade materials are available, including stainless steel, brass, and plastic. Metal blades have better wear resistance and will maintain their accuracy after many uses.

  • How to Do a Burnout on a Motorbike

    Learning how to do a burnout on a Motorbike is rather simple if you follow these steps #MotorBikes Before we even start, it is IMPORTANT to always practice safety first and wear your protective clothing and helmet, never attempt any trick while you are your own. Always make sure there is an experienced rider with you. And another thing, before even getting onto your motor bike make sure it is running in tip top condition. To ensure it is, always use high quality products like Motul engine oil which is available from Randburg Midas. Turn on the motorcycle and keep it in first  Pull in the front brake and the clutch all the way. Use your right thumb and turn the throttle while remaining four fingers holding on the front brake and other hand hold clutch, get up to about 7000-8000 RPMs. Make sure to stand solidly on your feet (if you are still learning do the standing one first)all of your feet touching the ground, to from an A shape with your legs so that your thighs or knees hold the bike from going too much to the right or too much to the left Slowly start to release the clutch while keeping the front brake pulled tightly. You will feel your back tire start to spin, but you won’t go anywhere as long as you keep on the front brake. Keep accelerating, you will be making a lot of smoke and turning a lot of heads.When you are done, pull in the clutch all the way or release the throttle your thumb Should you do a burn out it, is at your own risk.

  • Five fastest dirt bikes

    There is no stopping the thrill of accelerating to top speeds on an open stretch of land. Dirt bikes with full off-road capabilities can manage speeds well over 160 Kph with the right rider and conditions. Here are the five fastest dirt motor bikes in the world #MotorBikes To keep your off-road motor bike in top condition make sure to use Motul engine oil and maintenance products that are available from Randburg Midas. Speed isn’t everything in dirt bikes made for wild off-road romps, but the combination of raw power and light weights make them capable of furious sprints. These five bikes have set the standard. Honda CRF 450R (140 kph) Many dirt bike enthusiasts say the Honda CRF 450R can beat any other dirt bike in a race with the right rider in control. Honda’s 2014 model brings in more oil flow for better response from the air fork while shaving 1kg off the curb weight, bringing it down to 110kg. The result is a bike made to win races with agility and superior handling. The 449cc liquid-cooled engine provides the power when there is a straight shot for riders. Racers have hit 87 mph riding the CFR 450R, which makes it one of the fastest bikes on the planet. Kawasaki KX 450F (175 Kph) Always a direct challenger to the Honda CRF 450R, the Kawasaki KX 450F also packs a 449cc engine capable of stunning acceleration with a curb weight of 112kg. Riders have made this bike a winner on countless occasions in Motocross competition. Kawasaki calls it “the bike that builds champions” for a reason. ATK Intimidator (175 Kph) Whether packing the Maico 620 or 700 engine, the limited edition ATK Intimidator has always been in the running for fastest dirt bike in the world. The 700 houses a 685cc two-stroke engine capable of 78 hp for a bike with a dry weight of just 107kg. Compared to the fastest dirt bikes that have ever been tested, an ATK Intimidator would have a clear edge with the right modifications. Racers have pushed the 700 Intimidator to speeds over 175 Kph. It seems like only a matter of time before that gets pushed above the record mark. Its year may come in 2014. KTM 450 SX-F (197 Kph) KTM is always producing bikes challenging for fastest two-wheeler on the planet. In the dirt bike category, the 450 SX-F…
