Re: Today I.....

Sounds like a good ride despite the fruitless attempt to buy a new van. Cheers, Paul Not exactly fruitless Paul, despite some frustrating traffic conditions, and pitch black riding for the last 48miles I actually enjoyed my first ride . Got to see our eldest and helped her resolve an issue. The fai...

Re: what started at just tyres !!!!

What brand are those head covers, Rich? Mine are very similar but I ended up having to fit the alloy cup washers under them rather than the far better option of on top. This was due to the sound of cracking and splintering carbon fibre as the bolts approached the desired tightening torque (which ai...

Re: Heading for trouble?

My 12s headers came off OK. I coated the studs with Wurth brake grease and they've been fine. The BCR headers were another kettle of fish (search here and you'll find many tales of woe!!!). I got a local breaker/small bike shop to heat the nuts up to cherry red and they came off ok but looking at th...

Re: Anybody got any experience of riding in Russia ?

It's a while since I was in Russia and never rode or drove while I was there but the standard of driving is "interesting". Try to learn the Cyrillic alphabet - it will help with some words. I have a Russian road atlas you could borrow. I bought it some years ago but I think it would still ...

Re: Insurance

It is a pain in the ar$e - I tried ringing around last year and ended up staying with Auntie Carole. I wasted a day so as long as it it stays around the same price I'll be sticking with Carole Nash this year

Re: Rough running R12S

I'm sure they've been completely honest due to the fact that my mate is best mates with both the service manager and the mechanic and they've kept me in the loop at all stages, including sending pictures of each stage of the process, telling me at each critical stage what has been done and what woul...

Re: Rough running R12S

Intriguing! You’d have to think a dropped valve, which causes conrod damage - would make the bike unridable rather than ‘lumpy’ Bearing and ring seizure - from complete lubrication loss (with one side retaining a film?) What did the workshop say, Dave? Intriguing is the right word Al - I thought th...
