Re: Newbie.

I think I was wrong about the 10mm socket but CBA to go outside and check.

I concur with Tony, however a 7mm nut splitter is a rare beast. Not sure if the other sizes work?

And, when you have nice new nuts on clean studs, use loads of hi-temp antisieze and replace once a year.

Re: Newbie.

A 10mm socket is required but do not try and spin them off until you are ready to shear the studs. Wait until you get home and soak them in plus gas for a few days then use a blow torch. That way you have a 50 50 chance of getting them off.

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. the wee grey 400s can stil be bought for ch...

Re: What's annoyed you today??

When mine was new a lot of brokers simply would not insure it. Mainly because the value was too high and I kept it in the house. One concept being a garage was more secure than a house. Go figure... It's now lost a lot of value through depreciation so that figure is lower. The quote range has also a...

Re: Test rides thread

They are not happy bikes in lousy weather. I had a wet long weekend in Yorkshire a few weeks back. I would have had a much nicer time on the 390 KTM. I cut it short and came home on the M6. It didn't help the front tyre was shot but, all the same. Also, watch for off-power slides. All the traction c...

The Lottery

I had an email saying they were adding "safe spend" limits on my account, that I could change if I wished. I currently spend £2 per week by direct debit. I thought I would check what they considered were the default "safe spend" limits. My (default) weekly spend limit is £750. Although, I'm only all...

Re: This is the end

Of the 10k miles I've done on bikes in the last 12 months only 350 were on the Storm. I can't sell it though. Those 350 miles were GREAT! I can't bear the thought of it going somewhere it will be unloved.

But, as is the fashion nowadays, ride a Storm, buy an Aprilia....
