Back to the lamp. I hope the piston doubles as the on/off switch.

Oh well. You'll just have to make another one. :thumbup:

What rad did you use and how awkward did you find the plumbing? I assume it's under the seat.

Re: No surprise there

Moto2 commentary has just given the ride to Alex Marquez. AA good outcome for Honda and Respol I guess but I don't think it's a good thing for family relationships.

Wonder who will get the ride for Honda.Crutchlow or Zarco or his brother maybe ?
Zarco I think. Cal already has a factory ride and is settled in the LCR team, assuming they stick with Honda. Zarco's performance in Australia was pretty impressive as far I'm concerned.

No surprise there

Looks like Jorge is hanging up his leathers. I'm guessing because Honda won't employ him next year and no-one else will for the money he wants. Seasoned with a healthy dose of 'wombles if I'm getting battered around like this anymore'. He seems to have become seriously cold over the last few years s...

Re: wtf has went wrong with prices

As a latecomer I didn't own a string of cheap two strokes or of-the-moment race reps. I desperately want an Aprilia RS250 or and LC or a grey 400 but I'm not stumping up six grand for one now. The best I could look at would be some late eighties also-ran.

Re: what have you done to your "bike" today

Pulled it out of the shed after giving it the cold shoulder for a bit. Stripped off the battle damage, listed the jobs and parts I need to fix it and gave it a clean.

Re: Anyone ever serviced a steering damper?

I finally got round to having a go at this today. It turned out to be easy on my LSL damper. I found a service kit in Germany with oil seals and internal parts but only ended up replacing one washer as the rest of it looked OK. The kit came with instructions but it was very similar to a video I foun...

Re: New paddock stands

They're OK for the money. My rear has hooks and is easy enough to use now I have the hang of it. The front is a pain to locate securely. All in all though I can't complain for a quarter of the price of something like Harris stands.

It's a long shot, but is the bike still available, or did it sell on Ebay?
Sold mate, sorry. I forgot to update this.

Re: From 107 to 128

where did you get your seat padding Nick. I need to get some on the steallie tank I'm pretty sure I got the tonsils stop foam from these guys, https://www.raceseatfoam.com/. The seat foam I got from a local supplier and glued two sheets together to make it the right thickness. The website stuff is ...

Anyone ever serviced a steering damper?

I've just sold my Sprint one that was too long and aquired an LSL replacement. It's a bit squelchy on the lower two settings so I figure it could do with a service. I've found a source of spares seals and internals and hunted around YouTube and it seems like it's entirely possible. I've not found a ...

Re: a bit of spondoness.

I find it had to believe too. Not because 'Honda knew what they were doing' but because mine has never had one. Even when I got it as a standard engine with DJ kit, filter and exhaust changes it ran fine. No issue on part throttle and no hesitation through the rev range. The ex race frame I have is ...

There was also another stage 2 morowaki storm owner there parked up by me. He was riding a Kawasaki ZXR

He popped down to your pit Nick but you were not there
Shame I missed him. It would have been good to have a chat.
