CLick for Rules for Roadside Assist Section


WARNING: This is not a general discussion section. This section is reserved expressly for post started by those people in need of IMMEDIATE breakdown assistance. Please do not START a thread in here unless you need assistance. Any registered user may RESPOND to a thread started by the person who needs assistance, but no banter please, keep this strictly on topic so valid communications can be easily referenced.

This is not an accident or injury response section. If you have had an accident and are injured, please call 000 for assistance.

If you need breakdown assistance support from a PSB volunteer, please do as follows:

1) Ensure you and your bike are in a safe location to prevent exposure to damage and personal injury. If you are injured and need medical assistance, contact 000.
2) Create a new post in this section with the subject titled “Help Wanted – Suburb”.
3) In the body of the post please put as much detail as you are able including but not limited to:

(a) A good description of your actual location including street name, direction, nearest cross street, or any other information that you feel would be of assistance for someone trying to find you.
(b) Details on what the issue and the kind of assistance you need. EG: “Bike broken down, both bike and I require movement to Victoria Park”.
(c) Provide details of where you and/or bike need transport to.
(d) Provide your mobile telephone number if available.

If you don’t have a phone that has internet access to make the above post then contact someone who does have internet access and they can create a post for you.

If you are able, continue to monitor this thread for updates and responses.

What will happen now:

1) When you create a thread in this section an email is sent to all regsitered PSB volunteers automatically. It will also be monitored by those using the forum at the time.
2) They will visit this thread for details, and if able to respond will make a post accordingly.
3) If you have provided your mobile number, the respondent will likely make contact with you to let you know they are on their way and provide an ETA.

NOTE: This is not an accident response thread, meaning to say, if you have had an accident and you are injured, please contact 000 and ask for an Ambulance. This section is to respond to non life threatening or injury situations.

For the avoidance of doubt (and stupidity) do not post in this section if you are wanting help moving your bike somewhere were it does not relate to assistance required for an immediate breakdown need.

If you have a bike trailer or other facilities that could assist PSB Members who have broken down, and would like to register as a PSB Assist member, please email [email protected] from the email address you would like on the register so that you can be added.

    Hi guys. I've just pulled over at the Cnr of Bennett and Adelaide tce as my clutch leaver all of a sudden just went all floppy and hence can't pull the clutch in. Is anyone able to give me a hand? Chris. 0406377927 opposite baywater car rentals.

        It was an adventure. I jumped on google maps and planned the quickest route to the freeway with the least amount of lights.. my god! run started it , but couldn't get the bastard to chage into 3rd gear! so pulled over again and then my missis reminded me my RACWA membership also covers the bike... so phone them up, turned up within 5 mins and towed me home .... Now my hunt begins for a clutch cable.

        The qucik response was really appreaciated mate. Thank you. I didn't know these bikes could change gear without the clutch.

          mate, you can change gears on anything without a clutch, it's just the getting going in the first place that can pose a challenge. i lost a clutch linkage on a 4wd truck out the back of nullagine, and got into newman without any probs. until i hit traffic and had to stop for them. then i'd just pop it out of gear, kill the motor, go for 1st gear and hit the starter. being geared so low, it took off no probs

              Pre-load the gear shifter, back the throttle a hint and you can change gears up or down

              Simply takes the stress of the contact parts of the gears allowing them to move

              Same can be done in a car, but need to rev match for the new gearing ratio before the synchromesh will allow you to slide into the new gear
