Re: Told to Self Isolate 15:30 Mon 16th March

Get well soon , I phoned my GP surgery recently ( not Covid 19 related , although I wasn't asked) to be told he was out sick for a week , I guess he's self isolating and I guess we're on our own for the duration If it's not Covid related :shock:

Re: Flip Lids ...

I have used a flip helmet in the past , but by coincidence when I stopped using it I accidently discovered the cause of some chronic neck / shoulder pain . I can only assume it was caused by the extra weight ? My current helmets weigh 1500gms or slightly less, I've weighed them ,( the actual stated ...

Re: spark plugs

Of all the things that fail on a modern vehicle ...... is a spark plug one of them? They rarely fail but maybe if you hook the bike up to a gas analyser you'll find it isn't performing as well as it should in the emissions dept or maybe it really is just a way of getting owners to part with their h...

Re: spark plugs

How much!! Replacement plugs for my 1200r lc should be changed at about 12k miles, They want about £13 each. Needless to say as the plugs looked great i will not be taking that advice. Chris.

Re: Classic Motorcycle Mechanics R1100S Article

I did buy a couple of magazines to read over christmas one of which is CMM , and was surprised to see the 11S article in the January edition I bought . I haven't read the magazine yet and while it might be helpful there is probably better advice on here if you dig deep or youtube.
